1.Stop motion animation

Stop motion animation is SO fun!!!

I made some animation with Stop Motion application using some daily materials (orange, pills :D). But because of the background and light, it’s very difficult to get the visual effect that I want, I drew a sequence of picture and put them in order to form an animation.

This one is inspired by a game that I played quite often when waiting for buses or subways. It’s an infinite loop which is similar to Penrose stairs, and the shape of this gesture is quite like “ ♾ ”.

After finishing the first one, I found it’s quite interesting using hand gestures to create animation loops, so I made another one which is “paper, scissor, stone”. (inspired by my talented roommate Echo, this one also can be understood as “520”, which means “I love you” in Chinese.)
