Why not just do the animation outside the app (say in photoshop or any other numerous free animation studios).. save the gif.. and embed the gif in the app?

other then what modi suggested i can suggest you use XNA for animation or create an interactive environment. that of course depends on how much time you have and do you have the will to start using XNA. I have created few tutorials on using XNA with VB.NET that may get you started. there is another way as well create pics of all your frames that you want to show for your animation. then update the picture box in timer_tick event with the next picture. creating a gif though will be easier but if you use picture box with several pictures you can pause trough the frames.

good luck
