    Hello creatives! A client of mine requested to bring their paintings to life, and I was doing a research on how to do it. So I came across this video on YouTube where someone did an exceptional work by animating the famous Starry Night and I love the effect, I’ve searching of a method of how they did it. Can any of you help me out with this? would be highly appreciated, Thanks in advance.

    There are a few tricks you can employ here, but the simplest is the Liquify tool.

    You can use the twirl brushes over the whole image, then animate the Distortion percentage.

    I had an old text-based tutorial here at the COW, but I think it might have been lost in the shuffle. But I also touch on this in a tutorial about animating a still texture map of Jupiter.

    Here’s the link keyed up to the right point: https://youtu.be/ARGI0BiD_5I?t=122

    Thanks for the advice, I also thought about using the liquify and turbulent displacement effect but I am not sure if I can achieve a seamless loop with that. But I will definitely check out your tutorial!
