An intro animation I designed for Ranged Touch, a YouTube channel about D&D, video games, and RPGs.
Cosmic Wizard
(intro video)
​​​​​​​Project
Cameron Kunzelman saw my animation work on Instagram and contacted me about developing an opener for his YouTube channel.
Work
I created a concept based on chats with streamer Kunzelman, Ranged Touch’s original opening imagery, and research on public domain images. I deconstructed still images in Photoshop so that each image element could be animated, and then animated the image elements in After Effects.
Results
The project was delivered to the client, and is now used on his channel. 
SOURCE MATERIALS
I created this animation from three images:
The background is Celestograph XIII (1893-1894) by August Strindberg.
The planets and wizard come from Red Apple and Silver Bells: A Book of Verse for Children (1897), which was written by Hamish Hendry and illustrated by Alice B. Woodward.
