As some of you might know, I’ve been trying to publish a Making Of video for ages. In the last year I have been flooded with commissions and I have not had the time to invest on this, but finally, I have given myself a free week now to work on this, as I have finished all my commissions for now!
As most of my illustrations are very complex to create a quick Making Of video, I selected “Countdown”, which has been remained unpublished for months until now. I created this piece as the back cover of an album, that was sadly discarded by the client, so I worked a bit more on it and decided that it could be a good piece to create a video from, as it doesn’t have much layers or very complex stuff going on. Needless to say, the video was not recorded – I just cannot work knowing that something is recording everything I do – instead I have taken several screenshots from the proccess to compose the clip.
Another thing I’ve been wanting so much to work on, is to animate some of my illustrations, and this one was simply perfect, as I was only going to need some fire clips in motion as well as sparkles and such – which I already had from other promotional videos I have done. So, in the end, I have been able to produce the clip and to get two nice short gifs for promotion on social media, one with the proccess and another one with the animation only.
