Scribble Picnic: fill in the blank

bunny kiss
This week's Scribble Picnic is 'Fill in the blank'. We are given this to draw around or over or just about anything:
I have used it for the bunny's nose and upper lip and the above gif is the result. Below is the four images that makes up the gif. The drawing themselves are drawn in Adobe Illustrator. I used Adobe Photoshop Animation feature to put the drawings together and make a animation gif.

    1. yes, it's subtle isn't it? I was going to do something abstract with crazy lines but just decided on the bunnies instead.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

    1. I used Adobe Photoshop for the Animation -

      (1) first you have to have couple of drawings like the panels I have here (I call them panels but they are really just whatever image you create)

      (2) put all the panels in layers in Photoshop but in the order you want with the first panel at the bottom

      (3) use the Animation option (under windows) - a horizontal tool box will appear and in that same tool box, there is an option call 'make frames from layers' & all the panels/layers would show up like films strips

      & you test out the animation with such options as seconds of how long the animation needs to be and whether it should loop once or more (my animation loops 'forever' which means it keeps going)

      (4) use the 'save for web & devices' option and save as a gif as other options doesn't make animations

      I guess you would have to know Photoshop to know what I mean. I've only done this a few times but I find with practice, it becomes easier.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

    2. When I've done animations for work, I've used Fireworks before and before that, Adobe ImageReady which I don't think exists anymore. In fact, i doubt Fireworks does etiehr since Adobe bought Macromedia ages ago. I've also used Flash which I have to say, did not like much.

    3. I've heard of Fireworks & ImageReady & flash, I think I have only tried them once and that was about it. these days it's all Adobe with me as I'm so used to them.

  5. Oh my gosh, that is so cute and our very first animation! Well done, Lissa. I love how you incorporated the shape too. This has been so fun to see how people have interpreted this differently. Thank you so much.

    1. yes, it is fun to see how different people interpret the same thing differently, I actually didn't have any idea of what to do until far later in the week.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

    1. I tend to use too many colors so I try not to use too many & I guess this is the result.

    1. it's a bit different but I think mostly because it's not full of details or too many colors.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

    1. apparently that's all I thought about when I saw the line and dot - animal noses, was going to do a bear but ended up with bunnines instead.
