This is my most elaborate piece to date. This one is personally special to me, I've been working on it since early 2019. I am happy to call it 'Never give up' because this gif came about in a particularly turbulent period in my professional and personal life. I gave up working on it many times and it sat for months at times while I pieced my life back together.


In the end, through struggle and persistence the clouds do break and perseverance does reap benefits.


I don't have as much process gifs as I usually do but see below for the preliminary pass through:

I feel motivated during this phase, and I need to take advantage of it by working quickly.

Near the end of the year after a monstrous year, I was intrigued by the concept of him fucking up, I felt that it gave it more personality and it just felt like a better reason to have it loop, so I rigged it to loop after he breaks form.

I love how the beats from the boombox are so strong that it jumps up and down as Darnell is tearing up the dance mat.
