How to animate textures in blender internal

Dunno if this is a stupid question :stuck_out_tongue: but is it possible to animate textures and then control them with a bone or empty? for example i want to animate eye textures blinking and looking in different directions etc. by of course drawing the frames, is there a way to control them like shape keys with bones and drivers?

This was one way… Or maybe this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rf3JBuSLRKU

Of course you know about Greese pencil animations, if not Google that.

Thx alot for the quick reply! :slight_smile:
