I was playing around with short frame animations, clipping masks, and efficiency in photoshop in photoshop. This is only 9 frames that I drew on top of each other using basic squash and stretch principles. Then I staggered them, duplicated them, staggered again, and duplicated them again. This got me two sets of blobs that I then used quick track mattes / clipping masks to change the colors and squiggles up.
It all started with a blob.
