Using 3D Studio Max, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, Digital Illustrating group Falcao Lucas(who also happen to be Two designers, musicians, and illustrators from Portugal that are married to one another) created their latest piece titled "Fear Cuts Deeper Than Swords." In the animated GIF above, we see an oversized skull being crushed against a blade larger than life, in an animated fashion which never stops going. It's repetition is flawless, moving between frames as if it isn't looped (which of course it is) and it's attention to visual detail is simply unmatched amongst the competition.
"We were asked by Giphy to re-imagine Game of Thrones by creating a custom GIF for the launch of season 5." Says Falcao Lucas.
Though this piece released earlier this year in April of 2015, it still is fresh and deserves the spotlight. Check it out and leave those thoughts below in our comments section.
