Digital painting of my good friend, Elena. So far the response has been largely negative. People say I have made her look fat. Oh well, more birthdays coming up, more practice.
It’s the last week of school, and it’s been a crazy last week. After back to back Business Law and Western Film History examinations I had to rush preproduction work. Managed to complete the above three paintings and a 16 frame colour script within 2 days. On submission day we had to run after our professor to the bus stop just to hand up our preproduction DVD. It was also the first time I brought my tablet to school because I couldnt stand the solitude of working alone in my hostel room.
I’m also one of the lucky few who haven’t finished with their submissions. Still got one more to go – Graphic Storytelling. Woot.
As you can see from my posts, I’ve been producing truckloads of work as the semester ends. Tried a different style for the last image, which has gotten mixed reviews. I don’t really know how to make a chinese landscape painting look colourful and blend into the rest of the shots. Much to learn, I still have. Let me know what you think in the comments!
These are concept art for our final year project. Done in photoshop. Character designs by groupmate Gavin Tan. Paintings by me. Rushed them out in one night. Loads more to go!
Another piece done for Graphic Storytelling class with Sonny Liew. We had 3 weeks to do this, but as always, I ended up rushing it the night before class. I told myself to stop doing that but somehow I still do. It’s a simple piece. We were asked to do something about a nightmare or the worst situation you can imagine yourself to be in. I thought that being dead while you’re still alive was a pretty crappy situation to be in. Second page after the break.
Katsumi Mukai, the Japanese sculptor that I mentioned a few days ago has set up his exhibition of works he made while gracing our school for the past 2 weeks. Yup, he made all these at our school. In 2 weeks. The exhibition will last till 31st March at NTU, School of Art, Design and Media. More pictures of the opening after the break.
Hans Bacher, the legendary production designer for Disney’s Mulan and other great movies came down to NTU to give a lecture on colour and composition. This was a fantastic refresher course in how to create effective images. We often get so bogged down with datelines that we forget to incorporate basic rules of colour and composition in our works. We students need reminders like this every so often. Not to mention the harsh but constructive critiques he gave for all those who dared to approach him for advice. Tough love man.
Katsumi Mukai, a Japanese wood sculptor will be in ADM till the 5th of March to conduct workshops. For the rest of you, his sculptures will be displayed on the first level outside of the ADM building. Highly recommended. The sculptures feel very Andy Goldsworthy.
