I was a little confused by the prompt for the second study, so I hope I met the requirements?
I took 4 screenshots of the original gif and glitched them by following the steps outlined here. It took a few tries to finally get some results, but my perseverance got me through to the end. I used those four glitched screen grabs and worked them into the existing gif. I altered some colors and embellished the head. Overall I gave the gif a rather spooky feel, like something you’d see in a movie.
