2d map to 3d rotating globe!

I just taught myself to do this. Obviously, for it to look spherical and not like an egg, you'd need a square map, but how cool!

What's wrong with an egg? We're making believe with things that throw the rest of physics out. And I'm not sure there's a planetary object out there that ISN'T an egg...

What did you use to project the map onto your shape?

If you haven't checked out Blender, it's pretty cool, free and easy to do this kind of thing. Here's a video tutorial doing an Earth globe

GIMP has a filter you run on your image. From there when you export as a .gif you have to play with the speed to get it to slow down.
