Crabs of the World - #6 Space (Part 2)

A box of Kleenex (not in a good way) and half a bottle of malt whisky later and Suciô is feeling a bit better. He's still not in the mood for any marathon shooping sessions (or watching any more φυκινγ Dr DRE "music" videos).

Stage 2 - An Unstoppable Army of Crabby Minions.
The lice we made yesterday. Let's call them "Up" and "Down".


Make 5x1 arrays of "Up" and "Down".


Then 5x4 arrays of alternating "Up" and "Down".

Now create a black background big enough to hold 9x9 crabs.
Paste the 5x4 arrays into successive layers starting with 5x4Up in column 5, row 1, then 5x4Down in column 4, row 1, etc. (Don't forget to black out the trailing edge column.) Save as a .GIF with a 1000ms delay.


Jerky, unconvincing animation - just like the real thing.


Now let's add some bases. We have a "grassy knoll" that looks right for the part¹.


Tomorrow we'll start work on the "gun".


1. We're sorry to disappoint our redheaded readers, but after a week of in-depth "research" into crab-related posts, Suciô would rather not see any more "burning bushes" for a while.

  6. Yeah, what's with the crabs? Why not fleas? When I die, I want to be re-born as a flea...

  7. As awesome of help this is, I really don't want to animate any crabs. They make me feel so itchy and creeped out, bleh. But I'll use this knowledge in other endeavors... hopefully.
