I would barely call that an animation, but thx anyawys :)
Ow, nice job on the animation. o/
Well looks like staring in to the sun from time to time payed off.
The light look really realistic!
I agree with you, thats why the one in the preview has only the lit up part looping, the sole reason for the break in the other version is that I'm still astonished by the well known simple taken for granted fact how drastic different lighting can change an object's appearance and of course to support the lame story.
I like the animation, but it's much better when it's lit up than when it's just a dark outline :P Maybe if it were me, I'd just have it loop through the light animation without stopping, but I understand what you were trying to do with it C:
