More fun with simple animation… this time with my recent Vampirella illustration.
It’s admittedly a little clumsy in places, but I was trying to get the most bang for buck out of just 10 frames. Shrinking the image made it almost a worthless endeavor, and keeping the image larger meant exponentially larger final size with each added frame. So I tried to maneuver some of the individual bats around a bit in the background so they were doing more than just growing in size.
Also, it’s a nice happy accident that Vampirella walking is an illusion created solely by mirroring her image left-to-right in each successive frame. Amazing how just that, makes the hips sway and the feet appear to be moving alternately in front of each other.
This is just one fun example of something you can do to re-purpose a clean vector illustration once you have one. A lot easier to manipulate and maintain high-quality images in each frame when working this way than when working with a bitmap source image. Please, as always, let me know what you think!
