Project 3: Animation

*This is the animation based on the third version of my triptych. I kind of wanted to create a story for my picture. The cat is a time travel. It used its computer to transport things from different time to a weird space, and this time it brought a metal Triceratops. I also tried to made some interesting movement to the lady on the left side. She is hard to be noticed but I let her stick her head out a little bit when she saw the cat appeared. Then hide when she saw the creepy giraffe approached and came out eventually. Thanks for watching and reading!

The reason is because I think every piece of art work tells us different parts of history, which is perfect to show the concept of time travel.
