A short buddhist themed animation. The image centers around the Dharmachakra. One of  buddhism's oldest symbols it represents the eightfold path to enlightenment. The Dharmachakra is surrounded by the Mahamudra. These billowing clouds unify compassion and wisdom transforming man's vices into the 4 powers of regret, vow, reliance, and remedy.Hence representing the basic teachings of the heart sutra. On both sides there are buddhist ritual items. The Vajra is on the left side symbolizing the impenetrable and un ruinable enlightenment. On the right side is the Phurba which is associated with the deity Yidam. If thrusted into the earth during a ritual  it symbolizes the world axis.


Since I vectorized the imagery I took a shot at animating in 4k resolution. Admittedly this is kind of pointless at the moment but for me it was interesting to experience the whole worklflow.
