Nightmare Within by Akili-Amethyst Nightmare Within by Akili-Amethyst
A seemingly endless war with myself. That is the only thing I am aware of in my banishment. Will it ever cease?

I hope more frames at half speed makes it less headache-inducing. ...Is it?
...Probably not. The outer part looks like it is spinning the other way... :dizzy:

I wish the spinning was slower, but it's already really amazing! :)

I get a little lost watching it. It might be going just a little fast

Meh. At least it's smooth. It's a total beech to calculate how much it needs to rotate frame by frame. Do you know how many times I had to rotate this by 11.25 degrees?? :dizzy:
That and if I leave the frames up any longer it gives just as much of a headache, because your brain wants to focus on each one but it can't.

Ok, so I would totally just make this rotation animation in Flash, but I can't get DeviantArt to accept the file! WTF do I need to save it as??

The spinning ponies have been doubled! :dummy:

I actually looked again at the outer frame and, sure enough, it DOES give off that effect. I actually find that cool. It is still a bit hard to appreciate the details and work, but what I do catch glimpses of I like. Particularly the sparkling smoke.

oh woow, that's an awesome effect with the outer line 0_0 even though it probably happened accidentally

Kind of looks a bit too fast now, though I love how smoothly it spins with this edit! *u* but yes that outer line effect is pretty interesting... but sure makes it hard to look at it non-stop for too long xD
I love how your pieces are becoming more and more high-quality-like <3 ~

Awesome. It's interestingly different not having anything centered to watch, as was the case with the Twilight circle in the Pinkie one.

Yeah, having a focal point might help keep the headaches at bay. Though technically there is a triangle of the texture that is in the exact center, if you wanted to focus on that! :D lol

it really does, freaky. i think having more frames makes it seem smoother, but it's still a bit to fast for me... D:

Yeah, but if the frames are showing any longer, it's choppy and gives me a headache! ^^;
