It was the 30th birthday of the gif format. I read that on the train so figured I'd stick it in MD.

Thanks for the cow.

This is one of my initial 3d modeling projects. I was working on making a broken 'egg' and 'gue' popping out which had one eye formed. Worked quite a bit to get the animation smooth to reflect the tilting of the egg as the 'gue' creature danced in joy to discover a new world outside it's freshly cracked shell.

Gifs are a boon to those who simply want to show multiple angles or some kind of motion instead of a boring static jpeg. There are restrictions on the number of colors, but, the end result is  really awesome. I am happy to see mobile platforms moving to gifs.
