We're Here, We're Queer...

We're Here, We're Queer...

This was the third and to date, most difficult animation I planned out. I wanted Sermonarian to come out as Queer, because they are, and I also wanted to celebrate Pride month in June. So I thought, Flag! The colors would match the juggling, it would be bright, and I would be able to make a flag wave. Of course, I'm not great at drawing so couldn't fathom drawing 16 frames of the entire character, so I began with a static Sermonarian, except the hand and flag, in Sketch, then used PicsArt Animator to move the flag and hand from frame to frame. It was a bit difficult to envision the way a flag moves, especially when you are snapping it to change direction at the top of the wave, then again at the bottom.
