This is a GIF to go with the story the Heron and the Hummingbird.
The story reminds me of the Tortise and the Hare.
My own acrylic painting of a hummingbird and heron photographed and turned into GIfs.
Cut out the wings and added frames with wings in different rotations.
With Heron – cut out heron and then added frames of it in different places on canvas. Took part of the background from another water painting and content aware scaled to fit PS canvas and merged the 5 heron frames.
Created screen animation and set timings – exported for web.
