Damn Neighbours by priteeboy Damn Neighbours by priteeboy
They always have to be better than everyone else! :shakefist:

Well I think that sums up the idea behind this year's Christmas submission quite nicely :lol: I didn't know what to do in regards to a more formal artwork like I've done in past years, so I figured that I had one year already where I made an emoticon for Halloween once - might as well use one Christmas for one too :santa:

I thought it seemed like a funny idea, and something relatively big and detailed as far as emoticons go too. The animation I at least had timed and prepared so that wasn't as difficult as some others, though it was made up for by the fact the general pixel work took longer with a more detailed background and everything :phew:

Oh well, it's their power bill that would make the electric providers very jolly :evillaugh: For now, Merry Christmas everyone! :xmas:

I know that time of year has passed (and went by uneventfully) but I must comment! 

My neighborhood isn't gung ho about holidays, so I never see bright lights shining through my windows at all times. Every year I do drive past houses that get a little too excited about it and could probably be seen from space! Psychotic The inflatables rather than the lights are the ultimate in tacky.

There's some well-lit houses in a street near mine, but none I can actually see from my own (just a few here an there with a "lazy" light setup, I suppose it's better than nothing though, as a street with not one house lit up on Christmas does seem kinda depressing) I draw the line at those inflatable things though - I hate those too :bleh: But they can give a good laugh when they're out of air and look like they've melted :giggle:

Have you seen the projector that makes tiny little red and green lights all over houses at night? That's really cool. I don't know what it's called. It's not blindingly bright or tacky.

Yes, a couple of houses around here had that last Christmas had that already, they look pretty neat, but they still don't compare to actual hung-up lights (but can be a good add-on feature to said lights)

It's more subtle, so it's nice. I drove past a house that had nearly every inch covered in strings of lights. It was too bright.

Lol, I have to admit I can't help but stare when I see a house done up to this extent. One's gotta respect the amount of work (and money) they would put into it :faint:

I think I got a DD on something else around the time I uploaded this. And you can't get repeat DD's too soon after each other ;) By the time I could get one again, maybe all of those who would have suggested it ended up forgetting about it :ohnoes:

I never did. But as kids my parents took me and my brothers to this one street nearby that has practically every house like this. It was surprising how everyone agreed to spend so much time and money making a spectacle of their neighbourhood like that. It's the sort of community interaction you don't see much of these days :hmm:
