Matt Arten - Bavarian Paradise Image Animation
07. December 2019
I recently did an acrylic painting and gifted it as a birthday present. I took some pictures before I gave it away to keep at least a digital copy of it. After I extracted the painting from the photo I wondered if I could change the mood of the image by manipulating the lighting to create another time of day or weather effect. This sparked the idea to bring the image to life as an animation. I proudly present you the result.
Matt Arten - Landscape Wallpainting Timelapse # 1
02. November 2019
I was recently asked to create a wallpainting with a custom made countryside theme. So I created a rough sketch then iterated upon it with a second more detailed sketch which became the basis for the final motif. I bought some acrylic colors and embarked on a journey I had never taken before. Little did I know that it would take me roughly 40 hours to create the final painting alone plus 15 - 20 hours to create the sketches upfront. But it was worth it. And luckily I decided to document everything on film so you can now witness the whole 40 hours - condensed into less than 7 minutes. :-)
