It is a 2D hand-drawn abstract animation using the music, "Catgot" by ISAN. The idea of the animation is to present a fountain performance in an abstract way. It highlights the beauty of the colors, composition and transformations of the objects in the scene. I inspired by those strong beats in the song which express the sound of raining, water dripping and bubble smashing. Therefore, the water droplets conduct diverse transformations in the animation. Adopting different colored hand-drawn brushstroke texture to draw the movements of water droplets in Photoshop so as to convey a colorful “fountain performance” to the audience.
