I suppose it was inevitable that I would eventually try to animate all these sprites I'd been working with. I mean, the sprites were originally created to be used in a video game, so they were originally supposed to be animated. While I wasn't using them for that purpose, I did want to see how well they worked when they were animated. So I found a GIF animation shareware program online, and I made myself a little test animation. I liked the result so much, I decided to try to make all the anniversary comics animated as a special treat to the readers.

By the way, as I've mentioned in previous commentaries, the program is called GIF Construction Set, and it's made by a company called Alchemy Mindworks. The program is pretty simple, but for making animated GIFs, it's just perfect. In fact, it's one of the few shareware programs I liked so much that I paid for the full version.

Anyway, I thought up something that would work as an anniversary comic, but when I decided to make a whole week of them, I realized it wouldn't really work as the first of a set, so I pushed it back and put together the animation you see above.

And while on topic, let me just say that lens flares do not work very well in GIF animations.
