If Tesla had a loading icon

Since I found out that the Tesla logo is actually a cross-section of an electric motor, I thought it might be cool to play around with it as a loading icon, having it spin or rotate in some meaningful way. Here's my first attempt. This is also my first proper GIF made with the Anima plugin for Sketch, and so far I'm moderately impressed, but it's still not good enough to be a tool I'd recommend professionally.

BTW, I'm creating a course in how to make loading animations. It's not as hard as you think, let me know what you'd like to learn here.

If Tesla had a loading icon. Notice that jerky bit in the middle? Yeah it annoys me too

If you look closely, half-way through the animation it jerks a little. No matter what I tried, I could not get this to go away. I think it's just a bug/quirk of Anima.

I'm still not happy with the animation, it can be improved. I might try something where the other "spokes" are just outlines and don't have a fill.

What do you think?
