My First YouTube Vlog! (Plus A Speed Animation)

My First YouTube Vlog! (Plus A Speed Animation)

I did it! I finally took a small step out of my comfort zone and shot, edited, and (gulp) posted my first art/animation vlog on YouTube!

Ever since I started following art YouTubers Leilani Joy and Lena Danya years ago I’ve always wanted to try sharing a more in-depth look at my work in vlog form, but I either didn’t have the time or the guts to do so (I’m pretty shy). However the more I watched animator YouTubers such as Rebecca Parham, sWooZie, Domics, and Levni Yilmaz, and even non-art YouTubers sharing their passion, the more I kept getting fun ideas for videos (thank God I keep an idea notebook that I can always refer to), so I thought…well why not try this out?

First Youtube Vlog GIF vs JIF Jeca Martinez

Just checked. “JIF” is the correct pronunciation 😆

So here it is. In this first video I’ll show you a speed animation of my still-untitled cat GIF from the previous post.

FUN FACT: I had to reshoot everything except the animation part because I spoke so quietly in the first version of this video #NewbieMistakes

I really really hope you enjoy watching this, and leave a comment in the video if you do. Also don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel!

Your Turn!
