Daily Picture (No. 32): Hamster Wheel Loading Animation

And now for something completely different. I’ve put the castle on hold, as I’ve been asked to do something I haven’t done in a long time – an animation.

The idea was simple, make a loading circle with a bit of pizzazz to it. A rotating circle with a hamster running in it, in the form of a GIF. So I got to work.

I haven’t made an animation since… 2007 I think. I’d guess it was a pretty good effort.

Here’s the last animation I made (also drew the car):
