Custom lottie character animation
"I was so happy with the first animated lottie Ilya made for me, that I immediately hired him to make a second one. It's a very nice custom touch on my website. I'm please and I recommend his work. I'm sure I will be using him again soon."

Tracking price and planning trades is a hobby for Jennifer. She is here to share her knowledge and help others trade with better trade setups and logic.

Jennifer has been trading Forex since 2001 and has developed a strategy focused on specific repeatable patterns found across the major currency pairs at approximately the same time every day.

The key is knowing what to look for, and understanding that the patterns may not appear every day. The market moves in repeatable patterns and when Jennifer is able to identify the process of getting from one pattern to the next, she can anticipate the market's next move with a high degree of probability and approximately how long it will take to get there.

As a freelancer working on this project, I was tasked with creating a custom Lottie animation featuring a character modeled after the client, as well as potentially creating a set of 5 to 9 additional Lotties featuring the same character and her dog. This required me to design and build the character from scratch, rig it for animation, and ensure that it worked seamlessly with the Lottie format.

One of the technical challenges I faced was accurately depicting the client's likeness in the character while also keeping it simple enough to be easily recognizable in the context of the animation. To overcome this, I carefully studied the provided images and made strategic decisions about which details to include and how to stylize them.

Another challenge was rigging the character and animating it in a way that was both natural and expressive. I spent time experimenting with different rigging techniques and testing various approaches to the animation until I was satisfied with the results.

Overall, I was able to deliver a Lottie that met the client's expectations and exceeded them, resulting in them hiring me to create a second one. It was a rewarding project that allowed me to showcase my technical skills and creative problem-solving abilities.
