Living Lore Animated Shorts

I've teamed up with one of the largest lore related channels in the Magic community to create animated shorts! This project was intense with over 60 hours of work put into animating 14 pieces of art.

My first longer form animation of card art! This was incredibly time consuming, but a rewarding project that informed a lot of my future work on living art. A lot of time spent learning how to fill in missing information. I got to meet the artist online as well and eventually he sent me a print signed by him and his mother who recorded the line for the video because she was the original model for the piece.

Living Art - Magic: The Gathering

Recently I decided I wanted to start a channel and try my hand at starting a YouTube channel for some animations I've been doing in my free time. Under the branding Mythic Tales I have begun animating art from the game Magic: The Gathering. Magic has some of the best illustrators in the industry making content for them and I found layering their pieces I could bring them to life.

Here I'll blog my work on the channel and write post mortems about my work to track my progress in navigating YouTube as well as developing my animation skills.
