This is my first attempt at making my paintings come to life and learning how to make animated movies in photoshop and little quirky gifs out of my paintings. I made the first one on makeagif.com which is easy and you can use it if you don't have photoshop. The second one I actually made the animation myself in photoshop using the animation window. I could have played with it for hours, changing all the time sequences of the blinking eye but I stopped myself after a few tries.
I had a lot of fun with this, the pictures take on a whole new feeling when they start to move. They are a little creepy because only the eyes are moving and they aren't smiling as was the trend in the old days but that's what I was going for!
