FINALLY dug in and animated a scene I illustrated: a moment on a train car
At first I started to dream really big and imagined the whole car slightly moving, the knitting needles moving back and forth, the cat wiggling a bit, etc. But in the spirit of wanting to actually move through the project, I lowered my expectations a bit and decided to focus on animating the outside world going by. The elements I needed for animation were the various levels of background, which I wanted to more at different speeds to hint at real physics.
Before the big reveal, here are a few of my favorite details from the illo itself
And the final piece! Thanks for an excellent class, as per usual, Jamie!
