I made my first piece of animation in almost a year the other day. It was a simple exercise to wean myself back into it, since I hadn’t done it in so long I thought I would do something simple. About halfway into the animation process I realized that I had never done a hair wave, nor any real “waving” animation.

The biggest reason I wanted to make this was so that I could start experimenting with After Effects and other kinds of post processing effects, things like bloom and depth of field that could take my work to the next level and make it look less “flat”.
