When I was a kid, this white girl with green eyes said my eyes were ugly ‘cause they were the color of shit. I told her that her eyes were ugly cause they were the color of sick people’s boogers. She was so shocked that I wasn’t jealous of her eyes that she started to cry and told on me that I was making fun of her.
And there you have reverse racism in a nutshell
I felt the need to post this for three reasons:
- 1. people in general asking how I did it
- 2. people questioning if I took a gifset and ran it through photoshop filters
- 3. because I want people to know that its digital art- painted in photoshop- not traditional. In my original post I used the words “hand painted” because I was groggy and exhausted and I wanted to imply each frame is a from-scratch illustration but I think some people took it to mean there are 16 physical hang-on-the-wall paintings of this which there certainly is not. I tried to change the wording but the post kinda went viral before I had a chance to catch myself. Sorry about that. I may be less awesome than you thought. Oh and on a side note this method of animating is called rotoscoping (same method was used in the movie Anastasia).
