Just a little animation practice in AE.
I've always enjoyed cutout animation, and that's technically what this is.
I drew out each part: an eyeball, two claws, a tail, and one wing, which I duplicated and mirrored, though it probably would've looked better if I'd drawn out the other wing. I might redo it that way, if I ever use this in a feature.
The texture is from an original photograph I took of the surface of a tarnished silver platter.
The music is the only thing that I didn't do: Nr. XI aus Douze Études - Pour les arpèges composés ... by Claude Débussy ... performed by Kimiko Douglass-Ishizaka ... from museopen.com
