Just made a little animated webring button for the first time in over 20 years. 👀
It looks like garbo cause it's being blown up like, 815%. Ah, social media.
Anyhow, go see the real thing soon on the webring:
@helveticablanc Oh that looks lovely - I frequently visit xxiivv webring~ such a good time and folks.
@helveticablanc idk if this is generally considered a good idea but i recommend uploading pixelart images in resolutions higher than the original because it looks very blurry otherwise
@TheAndSys Yeah, it was kind of a test to see how it looked. You can see the real thing over on the webring soon.
@helveticablanc - oh I didn't realise the above was the visual you were going for. I thought this gif was a little different from what you do...
Not sure if anyone else sees this but I get this (tumbling ninja cats):
@helveticablanc Might be a good idea to upscale it manually because I am yet to see a single fedi frontend that can handle pixel art.
@csepp Haha, I rarely do pixel art, so I'll do that in the future. You can see it on the actual site now, so I'm not gonna bother redoing the post.
@helveticablanc I remember webrings from the late 90s, and have been thinking about them often since I arrived on Mastodon
