Ouroboros Test Animation

This 29 second test is for the animated version of my comic book, Ouroboros, published by Nobrow Press back in 2009/2010.

This rough test has been animated by the very talented, Daniel Binns. I was originally going to try and fund this project some how but time has moved on this project will never happen. 

A big thank you to Daniel for even animating a few seconds of it for me. x
