Another thing that worked rather well.

I like sitting (not driving) in a car at night, the street ahead, the night sky around...

Wow! This makes me feel like I am driving! What a great illusion. Maybe the sky looks a little odd, the way it is moving sideways, but overall, the perspective of the road is really great. It can actually make me dizzy if I stare at it for too long! :D

Some improvements may be some road signs on the right side. They don't even have to be fancy, just something with a 'Straigh Ahead' arrow, or something to that effect, or, if you wanted to put a speed limit sign, that could improve the illusion more, too. Adding the silhouettes of mountains in the distance could be really neat, too. And a moon....

Okay, I'm getting pushy and crazy now. :D

My gifs are so amateur and crappy, it's nice seeing something better. I am addicted to gifs, so this will surely go in my favorites.

Thanks for the :+fav: and for the comment!

Road signs? Cool idea, but it would either look rather weird having too much repitition or it would make the animation too long. Mountains are an interesting idea, since it seems like I should replace the background anyway.

I also have rather crappy animations in my gallery. =D

Yeh, you're right. Road signs would be too strange, looping over one another. It would be like driving in a circle! :D

The mountain idea seems a little better. I personally like the sky, but I think it should be moving the same direction as the road instead of sideways. Once again, don't take my words as law. I'm just throwing out ideas. :D

You are so welcome! I'll try to remember to check out more of your works! :D

I really like the color of the sky; I would like that the stars are a little more scattered and had flashes, it seems that some of them were fully aligned, and are more than three, which gives the impression of not being natural.

I also like the clouds, but perhaps had slightly altered the pattern; you could appreciate a little more messy and dispersed nature of these and not seem calculated.

You could perhaps add some signage to the sides, or something. Very good work, continue so!

I'm not very sure of that throughout this well written since I don't speak English, I did my best. Kao Emoji-77 (Errr) [V4]

None of the stars are aligned, but I see what you mean. I never thought too much about the stars.

Thank you for your suggestions!


Me neither, but it looks fine to me. Only a few mistakes. Good job on commenting constructively!

This peice is great i love the road wiht teh bumps on the left side the give it a more traved look thank the straight line would have like on the right side mabey that should be made sligtly more non straight to make it all match some and give both sides the woren look and the endlessness is wonderfull but i think the clouds are too real looking i mihgt look better if they were only have the skyline or more of a solid than the semi transparent that they are and they seem to be moving rather quick. But all in all its a great gif very well done.

Thank you.

Ah, yes, I could have added some symmetry on the road.
The clouds are a problem, aren't they. But I really wanted them in. Maybe I'll think of something to improve it. A skyline would be an interesting idea. That I won't use, because it doesn't quite fit into what I had in mind. But still a good idea.

i ment only make the clouds cover the top alf of the sky sorry
