The only possible thing I can think is to make it flash because sadly all the gifs lose quality because of the colours u.u
But it looks pretty awesome :D is hard to see those little pixels. I love the process! :meow:

This is really neat, to see your progress *w* As for your question, unfortunately that's the downside to .gif :c Every .gif I've ever seen has those weird pixels scattered across it..

Actually it looks very good! I don't see the dots. If it's a more general quality problem, unfortunately there's nothing you can do to make a GIF smoother, since it's limited to 256 colors. Too bad there aren't animated JPEGs or PNGs - the only potentially high-quality animation I can think of is Flash.

Usually the problem with GIFs (and I see it here, though it's not bothersome) is "banding" - sharp edges between similar but not identical colors, where the many colors of a smooth gradient have to be reduced to a very few. It's worst in photos, less in smooth shading, and usually not much of a problem in cell shading.

ahh thanks and I already knwo a bit of what you wrote but I think I've seen peopel save as gif and don't loose quality much :( I don't rememebr where though so I can't ask them until I find them again LOL.
the dots are mostly visible on the black clothes especially her shoes.
I have tried saving my animations in flash as .swf file like here [link] but it looses transparency on bg what was annoying for the chibis much. aww ^^;

Now I see them - and the closer I look at them, the more puzzled I am. At first I thought they were the result of poor color reduction, but then there should be more of them in the last image than in the one before, since the last one has more colors. Also, in that case they would be different sizes instead of all the same. So, without knowing a lot more about how you made the images, I don't know. I can say, though, that they are faint enough that they do no harm - on the shoes they look like mild glossy highlights, which is actually good.
