Following on from a previous post about my idea for a game/video game intro, I’ve been doing a few tests as the opportunity arises.
The leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising. A small project I'd wanted to get finished for a long time. All the paintings were created on the ipad. I also want to make animated gifs for each of the paintings. I'll get to that soon enough. James Connolly is actually my great great grandfather, I would love to have the chance to have a long talk with him.
Prints of each of the images will be available soon. Watch this space and my Facebook page for details.
Phase 1 is over. I have the paintings completed. I just had to try get one of these gifs done. Here's the first one. Expect at least six more. Eamonn Ceannt. I toyed with making the gifs through apps on the ipad, but the results were not what I wanted. I'll tinker until I'm happy with the result.
I'm working on a series of paintings of the leaders of the Easter Rising. All of them have been created on the ipad using Procreate and the Maglus Stylus. I'm keeping track of my own progress with this post. Here's the stages and completed version of one of the images I've finished. Once they're all done, I'm gonna stitch em' all together and create some gif images of them. One thing at a time though...
After seeing some animated gifs of still images, I've decided to learn how to do it myself. This is rough and ready... These posts are for me to push myself to improve. I've picked the final images from my first set of movie stills to work off of. Expect revisions/updates.
