Animated Stickman - Handspring
Animated stickman gymnast performing a series of front handsprings (forward handstand flips) across the screen. Stick figures created in Pivot software and modeled from a series of gymnastics photographs of the cycle, then exported and fine tuned in Photoshop into about a dozen smaller image files, then animated with APNG Anime Maker software (about 200 layers; 166 horizontal pixels per flip; 1-2 days work).

In my opinion, ''stickman'' is the most professional-looking, painstakingly-crafted and amusing of all personas, animated or not. In fact, I'm very picky for these things given that most of them are either too childish, aimed at a specific audience (sports, flags, celebrities), or mediocre creations, or use a design that is too ''busy'' to place as background and still be readable, where I'm able to see my addon icons and bookmark folders. Very few persona-authors keep that in mind when coming up with yet another composition. Thanks!!!!

This animated is one of the best that I have seen in the entire gallery-- and I have looked at a lot of them! Super Job!
