First, go and watch 10 of Cyriak’s animations.
I am not ashamed to say it… I’m a Cyriak fan. I celebrate his entire catalogue. For me, it doesn’t get any better than when he animates a cow into a spider.
What I love so much about his work (aside from the window into pure, unadulterated creative insanity) is the way he uses After Effects. It’s really unique and clever, and he’s not afraid to do REALLY tedious things in the name of making something you’ve never seen before.
Let’s explore some of these techniques, and try to recreate this little thing Cyriak made.
It’s gonna get weird… let’s do this.
Thank you guys, make sure to check out the rest of the 30 Days of After Effects tutorials.Sponsored by
