Hello followers! This is a sample animation I made to simulate an illustration being drawn, but kinda cheating the animation to make it much faster and more efficient. Instead of recording my screen while I draw, I took the final illustration and faded in the various layers in 10% increments. The layers in order are: line art —> base/flat colour —> body/details —> wings —> thorax top. I turned it into an animated gif, then exported it as a video file.
I used my Western Honey Bee illustration, which seems to have turned into my signature illustration that I am known for.
