Animation with Photoshop: Task (Flower Part 3)

Experience in doing animation with Photoshop:

The animating itself was not as difficult as I originally thought. As soon as I understood the concept of frames and layers, I could easily animate given pictures. What I figured harder to do was the actual creating of the different sketches. Since they all have to be very similar and the missing of some, might make your animation look less smooth, I had to a lot of correcting afterwards. To compare the two different projects, the flower and the car, it has to be said that the flower took at least four times as long as the car. While creating the moving car, I was able to use the same sketch for every frame. The flower took longer, since I had to draw all the 42 frames in a different way.

After I had done some research on how to animate with Photoshop and flower circles, I finally started my own bigger project. I used my Graphics Tablet to draw a lot of different frames of a flower, from slowly growing to be fully grown, following by the flowers death.

I chose the theme of a flower because it relates to the theme of a cycle we were given at uni. The grow and the death of the flower keep repeating. As soon as the old flower dies, a new flower grows.

Because I enjoyed animating something with Photoshop, I created another cycle themed animation. This time, I wanted to figure out, if it was possible to create a decent animation using only one single picture. I decided to quickly draw a car and by manipulating its positon in the canvas, it looks like it is actually moving.
