Animated Painting (Sep 2021)
When animating a more textured and detailed piece - I try to build as much as possible in After Effects that way even texture and more busy areas like grass can be animated.
This one took a lot longer than expected, mostly because of the swallows flying through the air. I did them in more detail than needed initially for practice, then applied effects to them so that they look painted. This short animation took 42 hours. Compared with other work I'm not that happy with the time taken vs result, but hopefully next time I try something like this it'll be faster and I've definitely learned some new techniques while working on this.
