Now, I have created an animated avatar.

But, even at that size, it is too large of a file size to upload. I need some help optimizing it. If you can, please tell me how!

there's probably too many frames. You could try to create a smaller loop, but hat wouldn't really fit the way you did the portals. Maybe you could try to make the portals like in mari0 with the two rotating thingies seen from the side (instead of all your complicated little waves).

Basing off of trosh's idea on using the proper portal design. Thanks guys, also, what do you think of my animating?(And yes, he does blink!)

also i see your animation for the waves is not as good as mari0's : technically the position along the y axis should follow a sin(x) equation -> yours just goes straight up then straight down. You don't notice it at first but i suggest you try and look at that.

It was hard enough just doing this. I don't think it needs to be too accurate. Just needs to be optimized.

I've decided that what I have is enough. I'll just live with it being small.
