Be the leaf, Bumi! :dummy:

This was a collaberation with GAGBAGCHEN. GAGBAGCHEN made the cutouts and I animated them together into a gif. Come see the cutouts here: gagbagchen.deviantart.com/art/…

You can see our other leaf-cutout collaberation here: Be the Leaf GIF by Katara-Alchemist :iconbetheleafplz:

Time to complete:Animating the frames together took about 45 minutes

Materials:Photoshop CS6

One of the best things about stop motion animation is, you can basically bring anything to life. This collaborative piece reflects just that, fantastic concept! ( Featured by kingmancheng )

Ever seen Firefly and its movie finale, Serenity?  Wash, the pilot, has a catchphrase that goes, "I am a leaf on the wind.  Watch how I soar."  In fact, they were his last words.

Never watched it, no.

And I'm actually not the artist who made the cuttouts, I just animated them together. The artist behind the leaves is mentioned in my artist comments. :)

Well, the leaf cutouts were done by *GAGBAGCHEN, and they took him about seven hours. I animated them and it took me around an hour.
