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

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

Thx alot for the quick reply! :slight_smile:
