    i first saw counter clockwise then changed it by focusing on the legs and trying to tell my brain that her leg isn't actually rotating around the still leg in the middle but its just 2d and its rotating either way,
    BUT NOW I CANT CHANGE IT BACK , i can only see clockwise.
    I got it, just focus on the knee and see how clearly it doesn't suggest a particular direction then imagine the direction you want.
    I had to cover up the screen with my hand so I could only see her knee. [​IMG]

    Heres how I switch it: stare at it, let it spin for a while, briefly close your eyes (but not blink) and then think that she is spinning the other way right before you open them.

    Isn't there a Left Brain Right Brain DS game coming out soon? Also, I think there's some Right Brain Training DS games already out in Japanese. Maybe those will help who can't change the direction... lol...
    AAAAH I CAN'T UNSEE IT!

    I first saw it clockwise, so I voted clockwise... then when I came back to it, it was rotating backwards [​IMG]

    Well, the description of the right side kinda fits my personality, so I think I'm allright... [​IMG]

    Mmm weird

    Initially I could only see clockwise and thought... this is BS.... then I could see counter-clockwise, now I can change the direction at will.

    I could see her nipples since the first try tho... [​IMG]

    If you look from over her head, it's counter-clockwise. If you look from under her panties, she turns clockwise, I guess.
    I voted counter-clockwise, to my surprise!

    the thing is, the image isn't ambiguous enough to animate it without any bias.
    it needs to be an object like a pair of scissors or something, you can clearly see this woman leaning into a clockwise spin

    and, I know how I should be able to make her spin counter clockwise, but I just can't do it.
