So my shiny new multi-port hub is still in development. And even though I've figured out a way to scan my watercolors in, I thought I'd still stay on the train of trying out some new things with digital. Last week was making a full rendered digital piece to look like a painting and today was animation. This piece was a static illustration originally done in india ink back in October (Inktober on my instagram) but I always saw her animated. It's been way too many years since I did animation. Not many people know that I was a film animation major in art school. I did some digital animation early on in my career as a designer but not in the illustrated way that I wanted to. So I thought I'd give it a whirl this week making a walk cycle - one of my first assignments in art school way back when. I decided to keep her cycle in the middle with a cat alongside her with the background panning. It did present some challenges... there are certainly a lot of things I would do differently or better and a lot of things I need to re-learn. But I'm going to share it anyway. I hope this sparks you to try something new or even revisit something you've put down a long time ago.
Happy Wednesday 💞
