Within my animation I made use of squash and stretch. I used this principal in the black goo surrounding the rainbow oval. When the goo gets close to the spikes it stretches until it breaks. I used color to create a smooth transition in the bottom oval and also as a tool to unify the top and bottom of the piece. The color of they eyes match up with the color in the oval at the bottom.
I decided to make this piece reflect the feeling of intense social anxiety. the differing eye colors represent the views and ideas people have of others. The spikes that stab the oval with the black color represent the person’s mind creating a false reception of the eyes’ perception. the oval in the middle represents the person with social anxiety regardless of how bright they may be they always feel like they are wrong or not what they want to be.
