The digital painting showreel is a project for a class named Animation as an Auteur back in our second term 0f degree program (October – December 2016). To start the project, we need to present a manifesto to our lecturer. The manifesto could contain all kind of statements that is related to design.
For mine, the topic I would like to enter is the digital drawing.
By releasing this statement, I have to submit a video work that is relevant and supports my opinion. Meaning, that I have to show a few digital arts that is:
- Using ranges of tools
- Creative and bold
- Does not constrained with black and white
- Does not mind with the boundaries of canvas, only fit the image towards it once the drawing is done.
Here are the drawings that I’ve done to be put in the video:
The Mysterious Woman
The Big Boss
These artworks deemed to fit with the manifesto criteria, as i have discussed with my lecturer.The next step to be taken is creating a video showreel of these artworks, the main thing to be discussed in this entry.
The video itself done within two weeks. With the help of a colleague in terms of its design.
The video can’t be shown in the WordPress since I am a free user. To see the video work, please refer to the following link.
The concept of this video is that I used a single fo each artwork that describes the artwork itself.
In this scene, as can be seen from the video, showing a “trippy” videowork of the woman with unusual moving patterns of mandala behind her. Giving it a meaning to psychedelic.
The scene contains the word of science fiction then a white flash came up revealing a futuristic soldier in the middle of smoke and rain exposed by two light sources. This is to add a dramatic moment toward the character, giving a feel of suspense and indicating that an imminent action is about to occur.
The artwork shows up from the dark, followed by a spark of fire on the back. Implementing that the character is dangerous and ready to act with violence.
A view from the phone screen’s perspective trying to focus the lens while the character trying to adjust the angle properly and then took the photo. The character in the middle shows the intention of goodwill and friendliness by taking the photo of three of them.
A simple scene showing the woman in the middle with floral background, patterns at the corners, and the word elegance below her. The whole composition shows what elegance means.
