A few years ago I was working with the ill fated Humorous Maximus website. RIP. The site didn't go as planned. But Rip Haywire by Dan Thompson was born out of it (see http://comics.com/rip_haywire).
During my stint on Humorous Maximus I did some rough animation to promote my strip and the site. Below are the fruits of my labor. You may think they're a little over ripe, but, hey, with no budget, no animation training, no real animation program (they're the freakish product of animated gifs and a hodgepodge of several programs) I think they came out well done.
Take a look.
