Commission Project Title Card (version 2)

after looking at more 1950's title cards, I've come up with the following idea

(The antibodies in the background will rotate, but I don't have premier or aftereffects at home)

I know it's rather minimal, but all the ones I could find were too

Bacteria 2 animation test

It occured to me that the end-caps of the bacterium could mirror the shape of it's antigens - sort of "as above, so below"

Commission script 4

Just a few tweaks, making the script more personal (as suggested by Phil)

Virus Redesign

Following the redesign of the antibodies, I've tweaked the design of the virus

Alternative Script Concept art

Just a quick "proof of concept" pic to show what my alternative script's visual style was - looking at it on this screen, it's a bit oversaturated for chalk, but that's easily adjustable.

Which style to you prefer?

Alternative Commission Script

I know that it is probably a bit late to introduce this, but something Allen showed me how to do gave me the idea.  It's closer in style to my original idea (although not visually), and has more of a sense of humour.
