Pact infernal – Circle VI (Heresy) (Animation By Chris Keegan)

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.

Let me know what you think?

Digital Flowers

Dark Flower illustration

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.

Fragments and Light trails

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.

Nebula experiment

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.

Animation: Anémone By Marsen Jules

Practicing baking particles and force fields to music sound waves. Also testing out the new Eevee render engine in Blender. It’s really fast. I did this in 2K in lightning speed.
