I decided to animate one of my all-time favorite pictures, Baby Steps by Jessica Willard.
Some details are hard to see in low resolution, so please view the full video files. Maybe I should have made secondary motion more pronounced, but I was afraid of ruining the picture by making it too cartoonish. What do you think?
This time, instead of experimenting with vectorization, I tried using puppet tool and SpringFX in Adobe After Effects, in addition to Duik Bassel for inverse and forward kinematics. This resulted in about 200 layers... Maybe I'm overcomplicating things, no idea. ________
Note that the built-in player on InkBunny doesn't support looping. If you want the video to loop when watching it in a browser, right click the download link below a video, choose "Open link in a new tab", right click the video and check the "Loop" option. Or, you can just watch it on e621. ________
