I never believed I'd do one of these journals, but hey, here's an opportunity, so here we go. Cakes are there to be eaten.
Starting tonight, in between my usual Sci-Fi Uploads, I'll be publishing detail excerpts from a large-scale digital painting I did for a pair of friends' On-Air-Design Bachelor of Arts thesis movie in 2009/2010, eventually posting the whole thing too. It was featured in the introductionary narration of their contemporary/occult fantasy short film and laid out in a way for the virtual camera to follow it's lenght as a visual representation of the backstory. It's quite a bit off my genre chart to say the least.
So, why is some old unpaid artwork such a big deal when most of my not-too-recent stuff is stashed away in my scraps gallery? First of all, I only recently rediscovered the whole thing (ironically so, considering the fact that the project was called "Finding"). Secondly, I realized that I like it comparatively well- a lot, even. I really took my time and mobilized a lot of effort and creativity for it back then, and it shows in the level of detail done in a higher resolution that I usually do (to allow for panning, zooming, and so on). Not a masterpiece by far, but I enjoy it to this day. Thirdly, it really offers itself to be cut apart and made into a gallery section of its own, so here's another cake, and I'll eat it too.
Have a great weekend,
