Animated Portrait

View online

This personal experiment is an SVG animated version of a self-portrait I draw entirely in Illustrator. Once clicking on "play", starting from the main shape of a penrose triangle the illustration is drawn on the page thanks to a mix of SVG and CSS transitions and animations.

Below it is the original illustration (100% vector graphics), which is in color. The idea was to keep the colors and animate them, too, but in the end I decided to use the black and white version due to some browser inconsistencies in color gradient animations which were causing odd behaviours.
