French artist Kévin Gemin analyzes the mysterious ways in which birds move — less "ah, the majesty of nature," more "that is a peculiar way for a creature to contort itself." Naturally, his talent is perfect for distilling a good bird GIF into a tiny, soul-inflating animation.
The best part? These little masterpieces are made with a Nintendo 3DS.
Gemin got his start animating in 2009 with a program called Flipnote Studio for the Nintendo DSi. He gave himself a limit of two colors to make pixel art, until he upgraded to the 3DS version of Flipnote Studio, which has allowed him to expand to four colors.
