Personal Work: Life Drawing & Sunday Speedpainting #2

This week has been very busy, but I managed to do some life drawing and my Sunday Speedpainting. I decided to do a speedpainting of a photo I took while visiting my family in New York. I spent about 20-30 minutes on this painting and I struggle with landscapes and colour sometimes, so I'm quite happy with how this turned out.

Dysmorphia: Updated

After experimenting with different ways of adding motion blur to reduce the jitteriness, I've updated the file on Vimeo with the best version I've been able to come up with so far. I think/hope it's an improvement, but I may continue to see if I can improve it and smooth it out more if needed.

Personal Work: Life Drawing & Sunday Speedpainting #1

Since I haven't drawn as much as I normally like to over the last few months, I decided I'm going to try to do about 30 minutes of life drawing a day. I've been using a few different websites such as Line of Action to get back into practice without consuming my entire day since I'm also helping out with YPGTTO.

I also wanted to try doing 'Sunday Speedpaintings' every week. I'm sure I'll end up being too busy at times to do life drawing every single day and I'll probably miss a few Sunday Speedpaintings, but I'm going to try my best to keep up with it over the summer. This first speedpainting is of my dog. I spent about 30-40 minutes on it and I may work on it some more later on.

Personal Work: Tate Modern Giacometti Sketches

A few days ago I visited Tate Modern to visit the Giacometti exhibition. I was very excited to see this exhibition because Alberto Giacometti is my favourite artist. It's been quite a while since I drew, so I took the opportunity to sketch some of his work I got to see. I enjoyed being able to be really rough and loose with the sketches (partially due to the lack of seating and because I had family with me so I didn't want to take too long) and I'm happy how a few of them came out. It was nice to get back into drawing since I feel a bit rusty with it.

Dysmorphia: Adjustments #2

I tried messing around with the Motion Blur in After Effects some more again. I think these results are better than my previous two, but I'm still somewhat unsure if it's making any difference and if it does - is it better than my original film without the blurring. I feel I can still see some jerkiness to it but I can't tell if that's just from me looking at it for too long. Either way, if I update my film with some blurring or not I'm happy with the results but I figured I'd post the adjustments I've been experimenting with.
