Assignment 2: Sketch out your artwork and share
Watch: 3. Sketch it out

Sketching it out, I realized "WOWOWOW" was too much, and shortened it to "WOWOW".

I played with the "O"s for awhile until landing on a spinning color wheel. I thought it would add a little something in addition to the changing textured background and animated detailing around the reaction. Even though it could be used by and for anyone, I like the idea of referencing the color wheel when saying wow in an exuberant way to other designers / illustrators, etc. when they share something awesome. 

Assignment 3: Trace it up and share
Watch: 4. Trace it up


Cleaned up the letterforms a little here but my decoration wasn't as precise as it could have been so I had to adjust it in PS.

I sped up the animation (from 0.2 to 0.1) and adjusted the rate at which the color wheel spins. Instead of moving it one place, one place, two places, I moved it two places, two places, one place. I can't cut the eight slices into even thirds but I thought at least the wheel moves all the way around as it goes through the animation and looks less stuck.

I also tried only moving it one color each time but then when the animation loops, there's a big jump and it doesn't seem as smooth? I'll show both below. What do you all think?
