So now onto some dragonfly stuff. I wasn't quite sure how I was going to tackle the four wings. Animating them by hand would have been fun, but I really wanted to create a particular blurry look for them when they were in flight. Early on, I tried creating a basic 3D-wing rig in Toon Boom. Blurs were not being helpful at first, but after a lot of tweaking, I was able to get the desired effect.
