I've wanted to illustrate my own animated gif file for ages and was reminded of this the other day when I saw Emmeline Pidgen's lovely one she created to accompany her blog about freelancing (you can see it here).
I've never done it before, so just started off with a simple, Night Post themed one! I love it, it was so fun. I'll definitely be exploring this further. It's a little time consuming but it's so rewarding to see your drawings come alive at the end! I kept this pretty rough so it didn't take too long.
Hopefully I can find a way to host the file without showing the hosting site logo, like I do bottom right. I haven't looked into all this very much yet. Anyone have any advice?
