Above is the animated, and final, version of the portrait. This piece is a looping animation/illustration I created as a gift for my girlfriend. The process involved painting over the original photo in Photoshop and animating the separate pieces in AfterEffects. Below is the final illustrated piece, before being touched up and animated. This project was not just fulfilling as a gift, but a good learning experience. I was able to explore various brush painting techniques in PS and improve upon my animation in AE.
