It must be illustrated either digitally, or by hand + digitized. It must contain at least 10 individual frames. Consider the speed – remember: the more frames the slower a movement will appear. Upload it to your blog – post a link to the wiki. After you export your GIF please zip the project as a PSD file and email it to me as well.
