The Last of the Squidtivity

Hey Folks!
I'm not planning on listing the rest of the holiday squid until a bit later but I have listed the last of the squidtivity. There are 5 originals left and 3 of the squidtivity additions (2 camels and a new shepherd). Also! These and everything else in the shop are still 25% off!

It'll be a long time before I post anything finished that I've done on here animation-wise, but I'll at least post an occasional snippet. This is the first one. This is the first after effects "mid-term" that Scott assigned me. There's another one next week. Right now they're all about animating abstract shapes to music. I used a snippet of Le Tigre's "The the Empty". It's still pretty frustrating not having a full grasp on the program and having to abandon ideas half-way through because I just don't know how to make it happen but overall I'm really enjoying it.

The blue path shows the key framing I did for the tiny ball inside of the big ball. I enjoyed that part way more than I thought I would. Like I really, really enjoyed doing that. Most of the tutorials I've watched so far just show you how to do everything with plugins and presets and such which has kind of bummed me out so mainly using masks and key framing for this was refreshing.

25% off sale

Everything in the shop is now 25% off. Also, as I have mentioned before, the squid in the shop are the last of their kind. I am no longer doing custom work and there are no more squid left to list. The only exception to this is when I upload the last of the Holiday squid later this year but this will be a very limited update
(but it will include a squdtivity or two!) 
So, point being, if you see something you like please grab it while you can!

And now, for some "last of their kind" shots:
