animated reef forms / gifs

 
 

The backstory

Previous to this series, I had been making gifs on a program called Blender. While it allowed me to animate 3D objects, it was quite complex and hard to do what I wanted. I discovered a way of making animations on Photoshop. Through this process, I was able to animate the forms I had been drawing over the summer. These forms are based on ocean plant life I discovered while snorkelling at a reef not far from where I currently live. I was inspired by the shapes and colours, as well as the movements they make - swaying with the tide. 

I plan to archive all the animations I make on my youtube channel:
