Top-Down Explosive Animation

This is an explosion effect I've worked on. I was inspired by top-down shooters/bullet hell games at the time, more prominently Bullet Heaven 2 and The Touhou series.

I've made all the spritework in Photoshop, then organized it all together into Animate, where I tinkered with the frames and included a few blank frames to mark the end of the explosion.

The final explosion result.

A spritesheet of the explosion. There are white lines bordering the explosions, but this is mainly due to a bad export from between animate and Photoshop.
