So the month of February marks the angryversary of the Asian American pop culture website known only as AngryAsianMan.
I am sooo honored to be one of the artists doing a daily banner for the site. Phil Yu is the writer/blogger/pioneer.
And he has helped out not only sooooo many Asian Americans across the States, but he has definitely helped yours truly out with a number of things.
So I felt some serious pressure to make sure I didn’t drop the ball on this one.
My initial thought was to do something Bruce Lee related…I mean….of course, right? But after I thought about it for 2 seconds, I also kinda thought that probably every other artist was having the same exact initial thought as I did. So I went with what will most likely be each artists SECOND initial thought! Chow Yun Fat!
The top animated gif is actually my second attempt at the banner…and actually my second attempt at a animated gif ever in my life.
Which I know to most of you, must seem silly as like….everyone and their mothers makes animated gifs with their eyes closed.
The second banner was actually my first attempt…which clearly kinda blows.
As you can see here…I really did have a little bit of a hard time trying to first trying to wrap my brain around what should be moving, what shouldn’t, etc.
Again, this was my first animated gif ever, so please forgive me here.
I think I learned that simplicity is best…much like most things in life.
Here is a jpg of just the line art I did for both the failed and hopefully successful animated gifs.
Anyway, you can check out all the other Angryversary banners HERE.
Stay Angry everyone.
