Some time ago I used the free Photoshop plugin (puzzlepieces) to create a "puzzle" image.
Since that time I always thought that should be nice to animate an image like that...
So now I finally got the guts to do it and this was the result.
The main image used here was Monalisa
That little guy, depicting myself, was made for me by my dear friend and great portuguese illustrator Liliana Lourenço,
you can see some of her great work here: Vai-mas-volta
The background image is a simple wood texture taken with my phone camera and "engraved" with well known sketches
from Da Vinci (placed all around.)
Everything else, like the turning and clicking clock was made by me in After Effects.
No more plugins were used, free or payed, except for the puzzlepieces mentioned above.
Just a lot of expressions to make it work like I wanted.
Off course the original work is sounded (mp4) but I could't upload it here...
Hope you like it.
Thanks for watching.
