A departure from my usual work, but I made my first ever animated background gif and I'm super proud of it. It's pretty rough and jittery, but not bad for my first one ever. I used photoshop to draw in a background of mountains and some sky. I'm no expert at photoshop, but I knew what I wanted to do so I figured it out. Then I separated the animation into cells and strung them together in a gif-maker.
I plan on doing my next one painted entirely by hand.
Here are some photos of the process. Like I said, I'm no expert, but I plan on making some more.
