Short Pixly android program presentation for animation and Quake 2 transparency

This is a good program from Google Play, for a android phone, which can help you make textures at pixel level and animations. Quake 2 was done like this, but with Deluxe Paint.

 Gif pal and pal files. The quake 2 pal gif is below, but not used by the program. In the past i just forgot about it to delete it from my phone. Only Quake 2 pal file is used for Pixly and DoD. I will upload the .pal file later.
 Pal colors example
 Duplicate frame
 Two frames
 Frame time editing
 Frame time
Above the frames are used if you make animated textures for Quake 2. More about it later. Transparency could be done around a texture. Thus the Quake 2 brush will have a transparent texture. If you draw something in the center, you could have a fence etc.
 The last color is transparency. It is #9f5b53, which in turn represents rgb (159, 91, 83).
A plant i made
The result

 If you are using Eraser (other program not showned here) on android, toggle transparency in Pixly

Checking Resize Canvas so you will know the canvas in the second image too, you don't want a smaller canvas in the second image, if you do a animated texture or add other things in a second image or more
Checking Resize Canvas
Using Eraser program (other program not showned here), clear is the same in Pixly

Don't forget that the image must always be gif or png for pixel art, or it will loog with smudges in a jpg file ! For Quake 2 or Quake 2 mods, like DoD, save as .jpg or .pcx file with Paint Shop Pro 7 or Gimp and then convert in .wal with Wally.
