Process: Just For Fun

Sometimes it's important to make stuff for no reason, or rather for fun reasons. I'm currently working on something sea turtle-related, but my research went astray when I started doodling juvenile sea turtles in the margins of my notes. A half hour later, I had 20 little drawings that, after some finagling in Photoshop, turned into this:

Hatch!, Sea turtle hatchin'.

I'm no animation buff (I took a winter class back in college), but I love me some GIFs.

Oh, and the bio nerd in me would like to point out that sea turtles hatch underground, and have to dig their way out to the surface. So my animation is factually incorrect.

Factually incorrect it may be, but it's also cute as heck.
