Comparison gifs for my @gemanimate hand shot! I decided to focus on the gems for both symbolic and artistic reasons. This meant changes like darkening the bg while brightening the gem colours, making sparkly gem animation against the slow-moving fireflies, and slightly turning the hands outwards for a better angle of the gems. Admittedly I ended up sacrificing some narrative clarity for this scene, but that’s what happens with artistic interpretation: sometimes you’ll have to compromise one element, but only so you can concentrate on another.
why don't some artists not want their stuff tagged as kin/me/etc? I'm not accusing just wondering because I could think of a few but I dunno
