Full video of VFX footage is here: youtu.be/PH_KEApQouQ This is a shot for a documentary film by Small Town Monsters (see info here: www.smalltownmonsters.com/bray… ) This particular shot was a few days worth of work. Basically, the animals are 100% illustrated (not typical CGI) and mixed in with real photography of background and foreground elements. Very quick and cost effective VFX. Time and budget savings in obvious ways...
Working on more “animated paintings” between my deadlines. Here is a work in progress… At the end, you will see a dragon and a little girl. I emphasize "WIP" as these are just animatic place holders. Going to be replacing these with tighter renders once all of the illustration is created. (I am scrubbing the curser back and forth, checking the balance of the elements added so far.) Scenery Illustration work was about 3 hours so far... Here is a video of the "making of": vimeo.com/285362145
Saw Jurassic World 2 this weekend, made me wanna animate a dinosaur painting. Here’s a loose/crude animatic sketch of some explorations that I hope to work on when I get caught up with deadlines… More to come. Photoshop, Lightwave 3D, After Effects.
So.... I did a new piece of art of an old subject: a dragon. Did my usual thing; screen recorded it (for future tutorial creation) and then time-lapsed it... Then posted it on Facebook, and at the same time, youtube. This was 3 days ago. As of this post, it has been viewed over 71,000 times on Facebook (shared over 1700 times) yet, on youtube it hasn't even broke 1000 views. I'm relieved and perplexed at the same time. Relieved, because up until this moment, I really was wondering if perception of my artwork was going downhill (as I have seen so many newer channels with 6 digit view counts, and I usually can't go much higher than 400). So I thought I would try going back to doing a dragon (my most popular subject when my YT channel was booming). I posted it on FB thinking it would do okay, and was mostly focused on trying to get my YT presence back up there.
Well... Ultimately, the reverse happened. Which is actually really good. Because now I don't feel so bad about whether or not it is my art-- clearly, it is an algorithm thing, or something. I suppose it could also be the trend of content I have been putting on YT in the last 5 or 6 years. Kind of wandered farther away from this tyoe of art gradually each time by posting a wide swath of "other" work... And snippets only, too. Perhaps I just need to upload one painting a week of this subject and caliber. We'll see. I shall continue on! The YT vid:
