Another gif made in photoshop. This one was a bit more complicated than the last, because the moving element interacts with some of the background. As the man swims, some of the chunks in the salsa had to be pushed away to create a more realistic cause/effect relationship and make it look like he is swimming on the surface instead of simply floating in the air above.
Another animation made in Photoshop! As you can see, there are more things happening in this image than there were in the last gif. Last time, the girl was blinking and the lights got smaller/larger with time but this one has real (kind of) movement! There’s a lot of layer acrobatics with this one, but using Photoshop is helpful because you get to choose what you want to be visible or invisible by clicking on the eye symbol with each layer. You can use these to choose which group of layers you want to be visible with every frame you create. For example, I had a group of layers where the pasta guy had his arms a certain way and then another layer group with a different pose. I made one group visible while the other group was invisible, then “duplicated” the visible layers into a frame in the Photoshop timeline. Then, I unselected those layers and made visible the group that had a different arm pose. With this new layer group, I added another frame. There was a similar process for the man’s mouth and the squiggly words.
