World of Warcraft is one of my favorite games of all time. I have spent thousands of hours roaming through Azeroth. Questing, rolling for loot, and dreaming of one day acquiring the legendary Thunderfury.
Though I don’t play it anymore, I saw these pieces of artwork and thought it be a fun side project to animate them in After Effects. Not having layers was the most difficult part of the project. But once I was able to separate the different plates I was able to use puppet tool to add some minor animations to the characters and variety of other plugins to add life to still image.
Software: After Effects, Photoshop, Adobe Premiere
