The pleasure is all mine! I always wanted to participate more in the forum, though my tight schedule wasn’t really in my favor. I’m glad I found this post, drawing these was the least I could do really!

This was so fun to make! It's supposed to capture all the current locations and seasons into one icon: Amethyst Mountain, Slough Creek winter and spring, and Lost River.

https://ibb.co/kvWRzk

There's 177 total frames so no clue if I can ever really make this with all the coat colors but I can try (also the file size alone might be a problem anyway. For this one I used the 'default' coat color.

Edit: Submitting all the links in my post below this one (overhauling everything). The stuff in this post is outdated now.

Excellent work, everyone. It's also nice to have a pixel avatar in the mix, Windstrider.

Thanks! :3 I'm glad I decided to make some icons for this.

Edit:
These new versions look *way way way* better than the ones I'd been doing imo; they look about as close to the in-game coats as possible, pretty much. The old versions are still on my dA but I'd rather only have the new ones in the wq gallery to keep it organized and whatnot. I am so glad I decided to redo the coats before I'd gotten very far with this project!

The original 'time lapse' one is now redone as well with the 5 original coats. Since I'm gonna make my custom one, and that will involve doing all those frames all over again, if you want a custom avatar, one depicting one of the 10 new coats, etc, please let me know via pm before I start mine so I can get a bunch done as one 'set'! Otherwise it'll just take forever to do them and the wind and tumbleweed effects will not only take longer but look a bit different (which, unlike the leaves and river, aren't just flat pixels that are easy to animate in exactly the same positions and timing as the original frames; they involve lots of opacity changes and rotations, respectively). The tumbleweed is possible to get close enough to the original versions but the wind is especially hard to replicate decently and similarly.

Progress:

If I do any of the new coat packs or any custom avatars (with coat variations, limpy, radio collar, etc), they'll only be on my dA or an avatar thread. I ain't gonna overload the WQ gallery with any more of my stuff after I finish these, and doing all 10 new coats with animations is just plain not gonna happen before tomorrow. Static versions maybe and I'll take a break before animating them eventually but only the first 5 coats are going here because this is a lot of icons as it is.

Thanks. The fur is more messy in this than in my normal style, but I suppose that makes it look more realistic.

I wanted to participate!
I have 2 versions:

[Version 1]
[Version 2]

I usually use 1000x1000 avatars, and they work fine on the site (like my current Avi), and since there wasn't a size constraint listed I just used that size. If there's an issue I can resize images,,
Thx : w:

A lovely piece as always, Koa. :)

@Shina-K: Unfortunately they'll need to be resized to 100x100 pixels when they are queued for upload, otherwise the gallery will ignore the usual resolution limit and automatically enforce full size if left as-is, resulting in pages being stretched. ^^; I've updated the first post accordingly.

Phew! They're all done!! \o/ Now I have to make my own time lapse one because of course I did the custom version of the black coat after I'd already done like half the animation frames soo.... x'D Major fail. But whatever, the ones for this are done!
