Pixel Animation, Lesson One
Pixel Animation and Motion Design are mesmerizing and fun to watch on web pages if you like text and art dancing around your website like I do.
So, I made my first pixel art animation, Fishy, Fishy in the Sea.

Water splashes. Fish scatter. End of story. The animation loops endlessly.
