PapaGolf54's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
I started some years ago using Photoshop Elements to improve holiday snapshots. After some time I developed the unbelievable possibilities of those programms. I changed to CS5 extended and booked some pretty good video-tutorials. Those amazing guys showed me even more ideas and techniques.
In 2016 I found deviant art, where I came in contact with fractal generating programs. Another universe to discvover....
Then there were the GIFs. It is so much fun to create them and watch them beeing used all over deviantart. All my GIFs are USE4FREE and can be downloaded from my gallery. Have fun with them.
Thank you so much for sharing your art and for giving me your comments. It is really an extra motivation...
Hi there,

everybody loves to get comments on his artwork and like me many folks want to share their enthusiasm and admiration for those beautiful pieces of art here on deviantart. However, just writing only words is often not enough. There have to be different and better ways to express your opinion and to give feedback. That was the moment when I found that "SHOW MEDIA" button at the bottom line of the input window. First I used those nice emoticons, then I started to make little pictures but finally I learned to make my own animated "gif´s" and started experimenting with them.

One of the most used phrases in all the comments is

Thank You by PapaGolf54

directly followed by


That is when I had to learn that there is a size limit of max 150x150px for those "gif´s". You can´t use bigger ones in comments.

I started to use those little pictures in my comments and got some requests pretty soon. People wanted to use them. So I marked them as

Use4free by PapaGolf54

without copyright. Anybody can download and use them for free without any limitations.

Producing "gif´s" with photoshop takes some time but finally I was fit enough to start some more sophisticated projects like

Stunning V4 by PapaGolf54

The biggest problem was the implementation of a smooth movement. The next one was

Beautiful by PapaGolf54

followed by some other pictures like

Bravo-1 by PapaGolf54    Daily-Deviation-1 by PapaGolf54       Thanks-typewriter by PapaGolf54   Excellent-2 by PapaGolf54   KILROY-animated by PapaGolf54

After some time I found more inspiration on the internet. Many "gif´s" there are not programmed as an endless loop. That means you have some kind of reset / interruption when they start again which is pretty ugly to watch. So I had to find out how to create endless loops without any interruption. Once you find out it´s pretty simple. However it takes some time. But it was worth it

Good-work by PapaGolf54

The "GOOD WORK" took me hours to find out how this could be done. In the end it´s only a sequence of just 15 seperate movements. However, during creation I had to manage more than 120 seperate layers.

"Gif´s" should be funny too. So I started working with single letters like

Excellent Work V2 by PapaGolf54

The "O" is obviously stoned and gets hammered by its neighbours.....

Letters alone are boring. So I had to implement some more effects...

SUPER-WOW by PapaGolf54

I always wanted to create a moving and realistic looking water surface. Finally I found help in the internet. There are some pretty good videos that show how to do that.

Yeah by PapaGolf54

Now I try to find a way how to give help for others to create their own messages. I was thinking of some kind of Flap-Display-Simulator but I failed. So I returned to "gif´s" for that.

Breathtaking by PapaGolf54

How can I give some help for others to create their own messages (in their own languages). I created the A to Z letters as single "gif´s".

Needs some more adjustments but after some time I will make it work properly. However I just learned that there is a limitation of max. 5 "gif´s" per comment. So I have to find a different approach for words with more than 5 letters.

That´s it so far, folks. If you have any ideas for some animations which can be used by the community - please don´t hesitate to tell me. Maybe I can realize them.

Best regards from Northern Germany
Have fun!
