Detailed Views: Steps of The Drawing

I’ve always been fascinated with the concept of the still image; it’s a stark juxtaposition to the kinetics of the world around us. Still images may replicate the form of an object, but they lack the qualities that imbue their subject with life. My artwork is an attempt to render that quality, the life-force behind the form, instead of the form itself.

“Steps of The Drawing” is a video series that demonstrates the stages that go in to the creation of my digital designs. I start from either a painting or a sketch and then re-imagine the artwork within the digital space.

Below are the images and videos for three of them. For a full listing visit my YouTube channel.

Additionally, I have made videos outlining the creation of several of my original designs. The video of the above drawing, “Turning Sunward”, along with the videos of the other designs are on my YouTube site.
