This is incredible. Can I ask how you made this 3D turntable for your model and how you are able to do the effect here?

I rendered all the images in Zbrush and put them together as a video in Adobe Aftereffects. The glow effects were made in Aftereffects as well.

Mind telling me the secret of your clean thumbnails? I'm trying the same as of late but I keep ending up with pixelated trash. I would love to know how you make your thumbnails so clean despite 150x150 resolution.

Oh, those were may a couple of years ago, so I don't quite remember every detail.

They have 120 frames (compared to the 360 of the original). That keeps the animation of the thumbnail smooth enough, without unnecessary data.
(Your #24 one seems to have to many frames, causing the browser to have trouble with it. (It looks good when I run it in the export gif preview in Photoshop)
(And the #23 one has to few - so the animation is too stuttery.

When generating the gif of a particular animation, I used prepared color palette files (.ACT) for the gif creation in the export options of the video editing program (Adobe After Effects).
Those were created in Photoshop. Done by opening one of the frames in PS and reducing the color to an indexed mode (instead of rgb). Then the color palette could be saved as an ACT file. That ACT file could be used in the video editing software in the GIF export options.  - That way I could experiment in Photoshop on how low the number of colors could get and still have it look good. - Although i think this was only necessary because of the limitations of the the gif exporter in AfterEffects back then - it may not be an issue these days... :)


Well, in general, try to keep the number of colors as low as possible and experiment with the options (like "adaptive" and "diffusion" and dither and whatever else...)

So basically the thumbnail needs to have 120 frames for the entire 360degree  turn which gives one frame per 3 degree turn. That means the total animation for the thumbnails is just 2 seconds. Funny though when I look at your spinning gifs it feels like it's 3 or 4 seconds. Maybe it's just my flawed perception of time though.

That covers the smooth animation. 

I definetly see the color issue being a thing. My last work is mostly red, black and beige while the previous one had white, red, grey and few shades of black which might explain why pixels are so pushed out in order to fit in everything. I mostly use Convertio because I cant be arsed to plow through all those softwares in order to find which one is the best converting one.

It is possible to set for how long each single frame is shown. You may have to find a specific (gif) picture editing program for it.

Daz3d has some limited function. It allows you to set how long you want the animation to last and what FPS should your animation have.

when you made this and put it into your modeling programs, was this a flat drawing to start out with and you digitally coloured it?
