A Sailors Tale
This illustration is the beginning of a bigger series I am working on. The idea is to create Illustrations for my own craft beer. Part of the creative process is also animating the illustration for an interactive beer label. Below you can check out my animation progress of the "A Sailor's Tale" Illustration. Translating the dynamic illustration of the waves into motion was the first part I tackled. To get the same or similar looking illustration effect I split the waves into separate parts...
The combination of all those elements looks already pretty promising and provides a good baseline to continue working on:
Below is the water animation combined with a first simple movement of the ships. Far from perfect but the idea is visible and I will build upon that.
