I'm taking a break to share with you something that I have been spending a lot of time on. I've been working with a few people from a production company who are teaching me how to animate in Final Cut. I've been learning the intricacies of the software for a good amount of time already. I figured that it's not too different from what we've been using, and I'd be more than happy to share my knowledge with anyone who'd like to experiment with animation.
Here's an animation in the style of 8-bit that I was commissioned to do
And here's a series I'm working on in my spare time, called Super Box Pals
You can clearly see that things are improving from just the first to the second episode. It's much different than creating content with traditional frame by frame software.

The art of color and undetermined shape.
It may constantly be added to, but it will always be modern art.
Often used in Avante-Grade art as texture, space, or inspiration.
