i don't have the patience to work on an explosion for 1 and a half hours.

it looks very good for a first.

I just suddenly got into one of those moods where you want to animate something good and you are going to do it no matter what. So I decided to do an explosion.

Thanks!

Eh. actually i like your style of the more simplistic use of colors, it makes it look really clean. I say stick with that. Maybe try adding some shrapnel and debris though

The dissolving was okay, but it was way too slow, the color mixing was good, but the colors will still unrealistic (explosions aren't just a full red with different shades of red).

BUT, if this were for a POOF, (like a magician dissapearing), it would be great.

Alright, I will stick with this and fix it up, thanks!

Not bad, but after watching it a couple times, I could tell where you lost focus with it. Some of the edges wobble a bit as it expands.

Try blending the colors more, and add a 3D perspective to it. Would make it look nicer.

Thanks. I started to wander away from the animation and look through the internet lol. How would I make it look 3D?

That's really good! Maybe a few more shades, though.

I suck ATM, so it will be hard to draw something out for you, but basically do something like this:

you basically take your explosion, and add some shapes and shading to it to give it the 3D allusion.

Meh. I'm going to start animating more.

Kind of like how they do it in the Dragon Ball Z show. I will try that, thanks!
