Procreate animation for Inktober21.
The prompt was 'Raven' - the frames are hand drawn and inked in layers then exported as an animated gif.
Sophie HawkinsI started by looking at animals and emotion, focusing on how they emote through facial expressions and body language. I then translated these themes onto foxes as they had become a common through line within my sketchbook. I then shifted my focus onto experimenting with the idea of overlaying multiple images to explore how we perceive animals emotions; this then lead onto the idea of duality within animals and how foxes are perceived (cute, docile, mischievous etc.) verses how they genuinely behave (violent, akin to a vermin etc.). My final solution demonstrates the idea that foxes are more than their stereotypes that are depicted within tv, film and social media.
