Animated Twitter story: Jupiter and Juno

I made this animated Twitter story about a satellite called Juno that traveled through the deeps of space to meet her lover Jupiter.

What do you think? I built all parts of all the animations myself. Even the satellites I built in Blender from scratch. I’ve never really built complicated stuff before just from looking at a picture. I always used a tutorial. But there are no tutorials for the satellites I needed to model.

My favorite parts of the animated story are the girl looking at “How do we know what we know?” and the emerald-green ocean (even though it comes out blurry, not sure why). I thought that the animations with the internal structure of Jupiter were pretty cool, too. But for the rest, I do wish I could have thought of a way to have more bright colors and less space-and-stars clogging up all the scenes.
