Soul Asylum Pixel Animated by xkappax Soul Asylum Pixel Animated by xkappax
I was messing around with pixel art a few months ago to see if I could make a pixel animated gif from scratch. This is what ended up coming out. It's Soul Asylum related (surprise, surprise! :P).

If you are unfamiliar with the band Soul Asylum, here's some of there music:…

Anyway, hope you guys like it, thank you so much for looking, as always.

Cute and cool.
Did I ever ask what your favorite album/song from them is?

Thank you, my friend! :) And I don't think you ever asked me. It's hard to pick a favorite song... they have so many. There were two songwriters in the beginning, Dave Pirner and Dan Murphy.

my favorite by Dave is probably Gone Forgotten….
I think my favorite one written by Dan is called Crashing Down…

My favorite album is probably Made to Be Broken, but there are so many other ones that are good, it's so hard to decide.

Have you listened to them? Did I ask you that already? If I did, forgive me.

These are pretty good.
Nothing that instantly grabs me, but still solid.  :thumbsup:

You might like some of these better... I've been told that I like weird soul asylum songs. :P
Here are a few that are more popular:…………

This is another one that people like a lot. I did an "animation" for it a few years ago with my art. I say it in quotes because I'm NOT the best animator. :P…

Three things.

1. Those songs are a pretty good too. Again, nothing outstanding (to me), but still good. Though I'm not a big music buff, so.

2. My favorite out of what you've shown me so far is probably the String of Pearls one. I liked the music, the story, and the way you structured it in your animation.

3. Subscribed.  :)

Thank you so much! :) I don't get to animate often, but when I do, they always go up there. I think I've done 3 so far... Crashing Down, String of Pearls and Tied to the Tracks. I have other ideas but I do not have the chunk of time I need yet, lol!

I've found that Soul Asylum music is the kind of music that grows on you. When I first got the album "Made to be Broken" back in 1993, I was playing Phantasy Star III on my Genesis and the album was on repeat and I was too lazy to change it. The first time I was like "wow, this is different than their other stuff..." but by like the 4th time it went through all the songs, I was like "This is my favorite band in the world." LOL.

Their current guitarist is in another band called the Melismatics, and they're pretty good, too. Very different than Soul Asylum. I'm very much into music. It's probably as much a part of my life as art is. (I play guitar and sing) ... so I get REALLY excited about it! :P
