For any drawn animations I’ve done in the past I’ve always been super lazy when it came time to do the colour, so I decided to get some practice with a couple old sketches I found.
Instead of just farting around with the fill tool I actually used layers and gradients and various blending modes, the goal being to have something more interesting than just flat colour against flat colour.

I found a sprite sheet for an ostrich and decided to muck about with it in After Effects.
I’m sure I originally meant to use the ostrich for some project or another, but I did a bad job of making a clean animation loop, which is why the sprite seems to jump around all glitchy at the beginning. So instead I decided to just run with it and pile on layer after layer of ostriches and make it look all wacky. This is the end result.
The sprite is from the old Lion King game for Sega Genesis and the music is Jumpstyle by Angerfist.

Some Pargu stickers managed to make it on to this trippy cool print by trippy cool artists Briar Murawski and Michael Lindenas. It’s showing at Oz studios in Toronto until the end of the week and looks super cool. In case you’re curious, here are their respective websites.
