Animating a Children's Book Illustration!


    In this After Effect & Photoshop workflow tutorial, I break down my process for animating a children’s book illustration, including a four-legged run cycle, character’s wavy hair, and subtle moving background. I’m using this amazing illustration from the talented Furry Little Peach. This is the cover of her 2nd children’s book – Bandits, coming out on 29.09.2020.
