I used to share my attempts at learning painting (digital, using photoshop) on these forums quite frequently, but I began to get busier and busier with college work that prevented me from both blogging or painting too much regularly.
I've been missing both, and while I continue to procrastinate that blog I've been meaning to write about the many interesting experiences I've had in life, (or that have been made interesting by sitting down and thinking about how movie-esque life can be), I managed enough time in the past few months to paint a new painting, and then eventually animate it.
My personal achievement is that I finally learnt FL Studio, which I'd wanted to for a couple of years but it's complexity always led to confusions and me giving up on it. Somehow, this time I stuck with and didn't let go throughout the confusions and frustrations. I just kept trying, failing, creating crappy music, and then trying again. By the end I was able to create a track that at least satisfied me personally.
The painting also came after a period of terrible looking paintings that had me doubting my ability to draw. I felt like I'd forgotten everything I'd learnt.
So overall it's been a pretty good experience creating this painting and then the video, and it makes me happy cause it sort of shares some things very important to me personally.
Hope you like it!
