Design a new Blender Artists 'spinner'!

Three weeks ago I replaced the standard Discourse ‘spinner’ animation with the rotating Suzanne (see here). It’s getting a little old though and I was thinking it might be fun to add some variation: we can change this into an activity where we let our community artists create new interpretations for it. This can be an ongoing thing where we replace the spinner once a month or so.

Interested? Here are some guidelines:

  • The theme is not limited to Suzannes, but should be relevant to Blender/Blender Artists. Don’t use the Blender logo though.
  • Max image size: 80x80px
  • Max file size: 100kb
  • Provide a ‘light’ and a ‘dark’ version, preferably with alpha transparency and correct premul.
  • Post your questions or entries below.

For reference, here’s what the original Suzanne spinner looks like:

In case you’d like some inspiration: I was thinking of a rotating Blender Artists logo that alternates with the Blender logo once you’ve reached the backside.

Here’s the BA logo:
logo-3

And here’s the Blender logo:

Note that you can’t use the Blender logo for this, that guidelines page you link to excludes it. I checked with Ton to make sure.

OK. I figured the Blender logo could be freely used for any Blender-related purpose.

Note that your entry doesn’t have to be a Suzanne! Anything that’s relevant to BA, 3D or Blender works.

Watch out you might hurt Suzanne worshiper’s feeling :rofl:

We want Suzanne! We want Suzanne! We want Suzanne! We want Suzanne!

I’m on board for changing it out every month (or every something).
I think it would be something easy(ish) for newbies to feel appreciated.
