Monkey Island Animated GIFs

This idea came from another thread. Somebody asked for spritesheets, and Fury linked these, for Monkey Island 1 and 2, respectively:

With a bit of effort, you can make nice animated gifs from these spritesheets. A good image editor I like to get specific frames from the sheets is Paint.NET, and a good, free program to actually create the animated gifs is Beneton Movie GIF.

I made this one a while ago:

and this one just now:

I know the last one isn't anything special, but I haven't messed around with this stuff for a while, so I thought I'd start easy :p


Let's see what you guys can come up with!

    That idea crossed my mind...



    ...but it failed for the same reasons listed here.

    I think that Prizna's is good now that it he's changed it. Plus, I like the fact that you have to think about it a little, so that it is actually a bit like a puzzle (not a hard one, though).
    Yea, I didnt actually mean for it to be totally straight forward, I wanted it to be like one of these and kind of like the things they used in the show Catchphrase

    Not technically a gif, but it would sure make a great one! :D

    That's EPIC!
  • Oh my, the time that some people have :D. It's very good though, and quite funny.
  • Wow, prizna's gif meant something? I thought it was just random stuff. I would never have guessed. Especially the Reaper's part, since I would only have thought "death".
    I guess because you don't see them at the same time I just never connected them together. But an avatar is too small to put "Guybrush" and "Threepwood" in one frame each.

    Of course! Not saying you shouldn't use it. Sorry for not getting it, I guess I'm used to randomness and didn't try and figure out a meaning behind it.
  • Thats fine, it is pretty confusing :)

    Since this thread has turned into general Monkey Island gifs, I'll post this again. :D

    I've added his hook hand since I last posted it, since someone mentioned that I forgot it when I posted this on my deviantart page. :)
  • Anyone have one of Murray chewing gum?
