I finally managed to figure out how to get some Crypto-art up for sale on Rarible. Still yet to understand it all. I created Four animated procedurally generated loops. Uploaded them. Got them ‘minted’ Paid the ‘Gas price’ Then finally put them up for sale. See and bid for them here:
Created during the last few weeks of 2020 lockdown from November and into December I had enough spare time to create a short animation to some wondrously dark and atmospheric music by Pact Infernal. The brief I set myself was to animate as much of the different elements of the music into direct visual effects. So that the Snares and kick sounds would themselves be creating the haunting magical lights and sparks across the forest.
At some point I would love to take this sort of animation into virtual reality. Being surrounded by this type of sound and image would be fascinating to create and then experience.
Here is a selection of newly created Space and Sci-Fi inspired illustrations. Montaging 3D volumetric renders with painted textures. I have just created a page dedicated to space illustration. Please click on an image to see more.
The wavy image below was used to create all the flower illustrations above using a piece of software called Blender. The images above were created by taking the wave image into Affinity Photo and then using a mirror filter to create symmetrical floral shapes. Then finished off in Photoshop. You can see more on the Digital Flowers section on my site.
I have finally got back to my print studio to continue printmaking post-Covid lockdown. Three new prints are now up for sale. Two metallic abstract pieces and a landscape called Sunburst. Click on image links for more information.
I have been animating light trails at night for the last couple of months in my spare time. Quick Eevee rendering has enabled me to make changes so much quicker than before, its really helped no end. Music: Fragments by Kiyoko
Over Christmas i experimented with creating nebulas in Blender using procedural generated volumetric node systems. This above image took 4 hours to render. Which i then put into photoshop to finish off and add more colours, stars and depth to. With a VERY powerful computer i can imagine that i could do a hell of a lot more with this style of image making. Animating something like this would take years to render.
This three colour screen print depicts a beautiful cascading waterfall scene in Two layers of Blue. Finished off with a metallic Bronze ink to add an extra dynamic to the bubbles of water as they splash about. The vertical format of the artwork high lights and frames the waters shapes and contours tumbling down. Limited edition of 50. Its 56 x 25 cm. Artwork printed on Southbank smooth 250 gsm.
