Holiday Greeting Cards
I made two animated Christmas cards for Atreides. The background pictures were bought from stock websites. For the first card I used flash to draw over all the areas that shine (including the stars) and then I programed them to randomly change their intensity. For the second card I drew a few types of snowflakes (more or less blurred). Then I programed them to fall at different speeds according to how blurred they were and how near of far the viewer perceived them to be. I might make a more detailed tutorial if someone wants me to. That means you, reader.
