NOTE!!! PLEASE GO HERE TO VIEW ANIMATION!! --> www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IgAmz…

NOTE!! *This video is best viewed on tablet or computer screen*

What happens when someone like myself that specializes in photo-manipulation barrows a random Black /White art sketch and only recently learns how to use motion graphic software such as Adobe After Effects? Pretty much this whole video. :D 

So this project took me quite a while. And it all started because of a little beauty sketch that just triggered everything in my imagination. I asked the original artist about his sketch into allowing me to barrow it for a while to do a little tinkering with it. My first goal was to only manipulate the sketch to something different but then as I progressed,  the sketch itself became more alive. And that's when I decided to do a little research in animation. Turns out that Adobe After Effects, a motion graphic software is friendly with Photoshop. In addition after doing lots of reading I've come to the conclusion that After Effects is Photoshop but for videos. Which is COOL because I know how to use Photoshop very well so it shouldn't be that hard, right? Guess what, it is true, but there are A LOT of learning curves. It holds some truth if you know the basic fundamentals but there are a LOT more to this amazing motion graphic software. 

I am extremely happy with how this turned out. I know what you're all thinking "This looks it's legit and part of a video game!" Yup, I know lol! If I was working with a team of video game developers, I might do something like this or more. :> 

 Although I do apologize for people who are viewing this project on their mobile phones. It's meant to be viewed on either a tablet iPad, notebook or regular monitor. This is because the original painting was composed from start to finish in portrait mode rather than the regular landscape widescreen 16:9 mode. If you love my work please share it and you're more than welcome to contact either me or the original sketch artist for Rebirth himself Rum-locker AKA known as @RumzRumz.  on Twitter or Draw Crowd as Heimdallgazo and PockyRumz over on Furaffinity. Links are below.

I might also consider doing a tutorial for this over at my YouTube channel. Be sure to check it out if you haven't yet over HERE --> DarkWolf80s YouTube Channel Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

*Inspiration for this Piece* Obviously the Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne JRPG video game :)

Sorry I haven't posted anything in a while but trust me when I say this that there will be something in the works and it's going to be pretty interesting too. I won't spoil a thing about but just so you know that I am learning a new software which allows me to take my current digital painting work game a step up like never before. Expect to see a video deviation soon. ;)

Enter the Hunter
This photomanipulation/digital painting has taken a lot of my time for two reasons. First, my personal life has taken a different toll on things which also gave me no motivation to paint but slowly I'm getting a grip of myself and moving forward. The second part, is that the goal of this piece was more focused on the digital painting of the background rather than the manipulation and to build a suitable background from scratch that blends well with the main figure. 

I came across an interesting photo on my Tumblr dash feed and it was this amazing cosplay outfit. The build from the photos and quality looks phenomenal! But the original photos didn't do justice so I figured I would transform it but this time I'll be relying on more of the digital painting for the background than the manipulation. And here it is!

--PLEASE CRITIQUE!! I would like to get some feedback on my work only from professional artist or artist who have been in the digital art field for a long time and actually have some of their successful personal artwork in their own gallery. If you do comment a critique, I will be personally checking out your gallery before I even respond or consider your opinion. I do not want hotshots or people that have a feather on top of their head claiming that they know or have knowledge in arts. That is just hogwash. If you claim that you are indeed an artist, then show it. Otherwise, just stay out to avoid unnecessary arguments. Thank you for reading.

Hi gang! I just want to make a quick announcement. Me and a group of my best buds have finally created our first Let's Play video! I have never laughed so hard while I was editing this video.

Hey gang don't forget; I've got a tumblr account that I've been posting sketches to for inktober!  I post all my traditional work to tumblr...  reason being that I don't have a scanner so the image quality isn't great enough for here.
