I got obsessed with doing some good old fashioned 8 bit animations. I haven't done those since the good old Amiga days. So last week I downloaded a small freeware program called GraphicsGale and got busy on it. And it is so much fun.
Main part of the fun is the fact that the limited resolution leaves you with a way faster and more intuitive work flow. And limited animation has an old school feel to them - which further reduces your time schedule. Because of the primitive state of the program I do miss some tools from time to time.
