This was an illustration for a PowerPoint presentation. A simple drawing from Illustrator; exported through Photoshop as multi-layered as an animation. It had to do with machine maintenance and was in the instructional training portion of a manual on compressors, proper use and part upgrade. Somewhere around 2003.
A matter of trying to make technical manuals a little more interesting.
An example of easy blends in Illustrator and a little blur in Photoshop. It started off more “cartoony” but it distracted from the content too much so colour for the motor was changed from red, the implied face was taken out and the animation simplified. Can’t be too fun, right?
Photoshop allows for simple Gif amimations but cycling through layers; with time setting and looping or repeat/stop settings.
