If you don't know what a .GIF is, a .GIF is kind of like a sequence of images formed into one file that repeats itself. The reason i have posted this is for everyone to try making a .GIF.
The image below took me 35 minutes to complete. It is composed of 14 images. The first or base image i drew in 5 minutes. The movement of the tail was done on computer. That took me 30 minutes.
The image was a lot larger but the only way i could post it was through a url, and the only url that played it was the url to my avatar on this site. It would be a lot easier if i could have uploaded it but oh well. You can make .GIF images with a lot greater detail but that make it a lot harder to make them match up properly in there sequence. I can't post my better ones because the file size is too large. If i could the image i would have posted is 247 image sequence. Its two people fighting with swords. If you seen it you would think it was taken off an anime show because of the detail.
Now lets see what you can do. Post your home made .GIF.
Also just so you know .GIF images can be converted to flash animations which can be used to make flash games. So if you want to make flash game, make a .GIF.
