There has got to be a story behind the green hair.

Come on Dan.... let's hear it!

 

For those that haven't clicked on the image... it's animated so... click to see.

The girl who plays Merilwen, Youtuber Ellen "Icklenellierose" Rose, pictured below, has a penchant for dying her hair. Blue for the most part which is why my original model of her has blue hair. But her D&D character is a wood elf and green is the colour most associated with nature. Also, there's a character in the video game Shining force 3, called Syntesis who had green hair and I always thought it was cool.

Also, I've seen people post gifs before and they autoplay, what do I need to do to get that to work? 

 

Looks good Dan

Thanks, Jirard. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, for some reason I didn't check the thread until just before I went to bed last night.

Hope these Wireframes are okay.

Never mind, just read that they have to be 480 x 270 over in Jirard's thread.

It's worth repeating... so it's definitely worth repeating the requirement here.

In order to get the gif to animate in the post the gif has to be a a specific size.

 

A few years ago when gif animation capability was added to the forum I tested a few sizes..

Huge (or even large) animated gifs are generally better linked to (via uploading to the forum) because people usually open a topic to read the topic and don't like to wait for gif animations to ramp up.  If a topic has a lot of gif animation files posted it can get unwieldy pretty quickly and back then people complained about delays in images displaying so I tried to avoid that.  With faster computers these days and a resurgence of interest in gif animation we may need to revisit the size and perhaps allow slightly larger animated gifs to play in a post.

 

 

P.S.   I knew there would be a great story behind the green hair!  :)
