Fun with drawing over graphite powder

This is where it all started.  This was the first time I tried out applying graphite powder onto illustration board and then going over it with pencil marks.  This was the making of “Look Up”. 

Enjoy this video and I hope you are staying safe, both physically and mentally.

Dare to "Reach"

I started creating these short video where I animated my finished artwork digitally.  I enjoy creating movements in still images and enjoy it even more in moving images.  I hope this helps give the viewers peace and calm in this turmoiled uncertain trying times.  Please enjoy.

Dare to wander out into the darkness and reach for the stars

First Art Animation - "Shine"

I kept forgetting that I started this blog to capture my artistic journey.  I’m so use to keeping my thoughts to myself that I hardly think to talk about them here.  

I’ll start with what I will refer to as my “art animation.”  I don’t know if this a thing artists do and if they do, what is the term they use to describe the work?  I don’t know, so I’ll call it my “art animation.”  I take a scan of my finished art and attempt to animate some movement in the image using an open source art software Krita.  I don’t consider myself a “digital artist” as most of my work is done traditionally.  But I do enjoy certain aspect of digital art, mainly to create movements I cannot create in a still image.  This a lot of fun for me and I can see it as part of my creative art process.  


In this first art animation, I want the lighted part of the cloud to come alive and “shine” even more.  Here is a link to the video on my YouTube channel.  I hope you enjoy it:

Creating "Where the Wind Blows"


Where the Wind Blows is where the wind takes me, off to the distant land, world or universe, exploring new places, new experiences, new joy and fantastic adventures.  Where might the wind takes you?

Shine

The ray found its way through the thick dark clouds, determined to shine and brighten the surrounding darkness.  
A Moment … 
to look up …
to shine …
