Bat those lashes

I've just created my first gif animation. I know I know, pretty basic right. But for someone only used to seeing their drawings and illustrations stay static it's rather exciting and new to see them in motion!  Before I decided that I wanted to become an illustrator, I actually wanted to be an animator. So it's a real indulgence to mix the two disciplines. Having never even dabbled in using any animation programs I found this was a good way to start, as I have used photoshop to create this. I just chose an image to draw and decided on trying out making the eyes blink first. (as it looked like the easiest!) I can't wait to apply this technique to other, more complete looking illustrations and see where I can take this!
