Hello everyone! :wave:


Well I realise that my latest bit of animated nonsense is probably not the sort of thing that we're looking for here but...
... I thought I'd share it here anyway to hopefully give a few of us a bit of a giggle while we're waiting for the paint to dry on the serious stuff! :)

Oops... I think I was trying to be a bit too clever there - that link didn't seem to work :confused:


Try this link for now... :)

Hello again everyone! :wave:


First, thanks to all of you who've already had a look at my first attempt - despite me getting into a bit of a muddle with trying to post the link. :blush:


As the forum has just gone through a bit of rebranding, and as my video was intended to be used as a bit of promotion for the forum and its art competition, I thought it was probably a good idea to also give the video a bit of a makeover to reflect the new forum logo and colour scheme.


Please don't waste your time watching the new version if you've already seen the first one - I've only changed the banners...


... but I just couldn't leave it the way it was! :)
