LAITS Test Animated Logo
Yesterday I worked on creating a test logo for LAITS in After Effects.

So the jittery lines here were actually created using various effects and simple expressions in After Effects!
Character Animation in After Effects
Over the last few days, I have been exploring character animation in After Effects and have been able to pick up some cool tricks and have found some useful plugins that I hope to explore these more for character animation in After Effects. Below is a few versions of a super simple walk cycle, where I experimented with various effects within the program to add interest/texture.
Stretchy Face Animation Test
