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!
This was an animatic done for storyboarding class. Like the rest of my school assignments I did not have much time for this. Each frame was a quick 15-30 minute painting. Sort of a therapeutic retreat from maya and animation seminar. I miss digital painting.
I’m not sure if falls into concept art or background art, but this is my first foray into painting something from imagination. I was supposed to model this in maya, based on a gestural sketch that someone else did. I couldn’t make out any details from the sketch so I decided to sketch my own. Unable to stop myself, I added colour. I lost track of time and I’m very very far from finishing this, so I thought I’ll just post this up here to log my progress. This has been a humbling experience.
After painting this I realised I still have a long way to go. I need more discipline.
Practicing more on my tablet. Since there isnt anyway to bring my whole setup onto the Sentosa Skyride, I have to make do with painting this from a photo Donald took. Tried to use impressionistic methods. Ended up completing this fairly quickly.
Been a long time since I painted with the tablet. Feels good to be back. Feels even better to paint on the screen itself.
