Happy Happy Christmas animations


“Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!” – Charles Dickens

Lately I’ve had the pleasure to play childishly with animations.

  1. Both artworks were first drawn with Procreate, then exported as .psd files to my computer.
  2. After that, I animated them with Photoshop using the Timeline feature.

I find this an easy and fun way to experiment with simple animations. Important is to make sure to use separate layers for the different moving elements of the intended animation. In Photoshop, you can duplicate, edit and create layers when needed.

Merry Christmas! Hyvää joulua! Frohe Weihnachten!
