Often times I don’t get to share outside of social media, but I like to document my works sometimes by recording my process as it happens. Once it’s done, I can then “fast forward” or “timelapse” the process. In the video below, you will see an 80 times timelapse. This means the 4:14 minute video of the drawing actually took me roughly around 5.33 hours to complete. Here is the final work, for your reference:
This is a very interesting insight, in my opinion, which shows how my process works. I like following other artists’ timelapse videos as well, to see how they may work and what works best for them.
This is also a great way to explain how digital art works. Many people believe that digital art is just as simple as pressing a button on a computer. While sometimes it is, given the advent of filters and apps, most digital artists create their own worlds and realities from scratch. As you can see in the timelapse video below, that is exactly what I do… While making sure I reference real life in many different places including lighting and texture. The rest is up the artist to manage to get out of their minds and onto paper (or digital canvas, in this case).
