It's Time for...

This animated GIF was created for DFROST. to welcome the upcoming Christmas. The highly detailed illustration was created by a German tattoo artist. My challenge was to bring the 2D image to life in animation. I converted the layered illustration to a flattened file I could work with in Photoshop to cut out all the parts of the butterfly. Then I used After Effects for rigging and animation. Photoshop was used again for final compositing, to turn the rendered comps into the GIF. 

If you can not see the GIF,  please click here. The work was created as a full time employee at DFROST.
