A Little Painting
Here's a bit of fun... at least I had fun making it.
I'm experimenting with making movies to show how I create illustrations. I figure if I ever do presentations, it'd make for an interesting mix in the digital slide show. There's no reason a digital slide show couldn't include movies these days. It's all done in iMovie, which I find is very fun to work with.
The music is a bit sappy, but that can change. I tried the 'Ken Burns Effect' on the still photos... that's always interesting.
I could imagine making movies about the rough sketches, the finish pencils, making changes, using InDesign... and more of a step by step process of how it'd all be done. I'll definitely need better lighting and a tripod. It's hard to paint with one hand and hold a camera with the other!
There's just something about watching an artist at work...
