Animated Darren Criss Portrait

I draw portraits a lot. In particular, I’ve made a lot of digital portraits of Darren Criss, which my portfolio will attest to… Sometimes, I like to push my limits on art, and yesterday, I did so when I decided to animate Darren Criss’ face. It was inspired by the surge of popularity of animated GIFs on Tumblr. Little did I know, but it ended up being a rather hellish task to do. In total, I drew eleven frames, one of which I ended up not using.


However difficult it was, I am so very excited that it actually worked out! Below, you can see a gallery of all the frames for entertainment value.
