I was playing around animating on Procreate by using different simple shapes and movements; things I'm comfortable with animating. The pieces individually were pretty great, but in the end I decided to add some music to it and see how they all blended together. I've always loved Jóhann Jóhannsson's music, and Arrival's soundtrack seemed fitting for the shapes and movements. This song is titled "Heptapod B", hence me just going with the title "Heptapops". Blobs popping around, being happy. Happy blobs.
