Our Favorite Flipnotes from last weeks Topic "Spinning"

In our first dizzying selection this week, by Cosmirage, Duke Fleed is going for a spin in a centrifuge trainer. He looks to be coping with those G-forces very well indeed!

In our next selection, by geezer, a coin toss goes horribly wrong for granny. The coin spin is very nicely animated, as a frontal rotation, and check out the heads and tails on it. A very nice touch!

mrjohn has created a new OC (Original character) called The French Whirlwind for this entry. Using a mix of photographs of himself, hand drawn animation, and stop-motion to bring the character to life. We just loved the 'Allo, Allo' music too, it was a perfect choice!

The animation is fantastically crisp, and the great character excellently shaded, in this Flipnote, by HハCHÎへKリN☁. We can watch it looping, over and over. Great job!

Check out the beautiful pirouette action, in this entry by Sqwidgirly. The drawings capture each rotational position, for a very smooth and realistic spin.


kenpa(ケンパ) has chosen the spinning wheel as the subject for this mesmerizing, spinning Flipnote.

It's the Blob Vs the laser-pointer, in this hilarious entry by Ran☆Chan. The squash and stretch animation illustrates an inspired idea just perfectly.

It reminds me quite a lot of my cat, XD.

There's some wonderfully expressive animation, mixed in with a revolution for great effect, in this entry by Alice Lace.
