Excellent job! Really complex piece to execute and reproduce. I love how you made sense of the motion in 360 by only using the one reference. I would have loved to see the use of grey values to help break up the shapes a bit more so it’s easier to understand what is happening. Other than that I love what you did with this! Thanks for sharing!
