I went in a walk today. On my way back I realized I need to buy sunscreen.

I found that the shortcut I used had artifacts where it dark lines in the white areas. In the animation, they actually look cool to me, so I didn't try to fix them.
In photoshop they're easy to hide using the magic selection wand selecting a contiguous area. In an animation, I like how they
