Reflection to Final Project

Wow!!! I am glad that I am done with the final product. But it turned out great. When I first come up with this idea, I didn't think that it was going to take me so long to do. But at the same time I can see how to could take me so long to do. I think that I spend more time in the planning process than was really needed. Also, in my animation, I have a lot of moving parts so it was pain staking to animate everything. Besides a few little jumps where I moved the background I think that the end product is really cool.

A simpler version of this project would make for a good lesson to do with kids (if there is a full computer lab there to use.

Final Project :: The Final Product

After all of the hard work, here is the final product of my Photoshop Animation!!!


Enjoy!!!!


Final Project :: Backgrounds

I had an idea in my mind of what I might want the background for the animations to be, but I was unsure what I would want to use. Also I was not a hundred percent sure if all of the ideas would work.
