This was my first attempt at a boot animation, and for not being any kind of graphics guy, I think it came out rather well. I tried to attach the zip file to this post, but it's 10.2MB and the limit is 9.5MB so here is a link to download it.
I couldn't have done this without the help of this forum and I just wanted to say thanks to all who contribute.
Here's a link to a gif of the bootanimation. For some reason I can't embed it...
