Marching Onward

Animating in photoshop has always intrigued me but for some reason I’ve never really tried to do it. This weekend I finally took the leap and animated a 1 second loop of a couple characters from the picture book I’m currently working on, ONWARD. It is a lot slower than other ways I’ve animated, but I love how true to my illustrations the final animation looks. That’s something I could only get through photoshop. There’s also something really satisfying about seeing these two characters in motion. Not terrible for a first attempt. I think I’ll have to do some more simple animations with these two to get more practice. Until then I’ll just keep marching onward.
