If you use this tutorial to recreate my double-scoop bear, you MAY NOT offer it as a free icon (and must state in the deviation title that it is not free) and you MUST link back to this tutorial in the deviation description. Thanks. <3
Feel free to show me your attempts. I probably won't have the time/get around to answering any questions, but if you do have any, post them here and I'll see what I can do!

Hi! I wanted to thank you for making an awesome and simple to understand tutorial! (Especially since I've tried reading numerous others, and I only understood yours. XD) This was my end product: fav.me/d6zfcxi and again, thanks for making this tutorial!
Thank you muchly. And I hope that it can help people! I still need to make a more in-depth guide to color-selecting, animating, etc. Not sure when I'll feel like getting around to it, but it's on my to-do list if that matters. ;3
I use UnFREEz, because I use all cheap programs. XD It's not the most fun to work with. What I did recently was used GIMP to preview the frames (because doing it in UnFREEz is a pain) and then UnFREEz to actually do the animation. Sounds complicated, but it's because, with the Candie pixel, the outline changes shape/size, right, but with GIMP, it didn't hide the other frames during the animation, so when she went down, the border stayed the same height. XD
I made following your tutorial!! *.* Thank you sooooooooo much *o* I'm so happy but I have to tell you.. "practice practice practice" is the most important because is very hard to fix the scribble in the first step.. look the difference hahaha..
I have a program called Irfanview, which is free. Open your icon with that program and go to "save as" and save it in either .gif or .png format. On the right-hand side, there will be checkboxes asking if you want to "save transparent color"... check that box and hit to save, then click anywhere on the white. It should save transparent.
I use the Windows Vista version of MS Paint, but there are many downloadable (free) programs you can use... I've heard of Paint.NET, and you can also use GIMP for pixelling if you choose the pencil tool and make the size 0.1.
