Animated gifs from James Gurney

How to create animated gifs from your drawings:

1. Redraw parts of the pose, such as head turns.
2. In Photoshop, isolate parts of the drawing as independent pieces.
3. Create a Photoshop file with each element on a separate layer.
4. By switching on and off visible layers, create frames of animation.
5. Upload frames into online gif-creator such as "" and adjust settings
6. Upload file to Photobucket, etc. as above.

About once a week, Gurney posts a total gem of art info on his blog. The rest of the week he puts up cool paintings. :D
