Last year, the folks at Giphy asked me and a few other artists to create GIFs to help promote the release of Beck’s newest single, “Dreams“. As far as life goals go, I can’t think of anything better than being commissioned to make some art for Beck! You can see Giphy’s official post (with the other beautiful Beck GIFs) here.
This whole thing happend around the time of NASA’s New Horizons flyby of Pluto, so I decided to work that into my piece. I used Hexels Pro to create the trixel art for my piece, then glitched it out using ImageGlitch (see my tutorial here). I think I spent about 8 hours total on this piece and it turned out awesome. Here’s a speed up process video of the last ten minutes of the GIF’s creation:
I was so inspired, I ended up making two gifs… I think I like this second one even more than the first!
