Art Video: The Life Of Pi by NitelyHallow Art Video: The Life Of Pi by NitelyHallow
EDIT 12/29/2012 : I can't believe someone like me could ever be recognized when a couple years back, I was that person who just browsed galleries and admired art, and occasionally uploaded a drawing or two. This community has been wonderful to me, I owe it all to those who've encouraged me to upload more and to those who's work I admire and fave. I especially have to give thanks to all those artists who take the time to make tutorials+brush packs for us "aspiring newbies". This truly means the world to me!! Thank you to TorazTheNomad for suggesting this piece and Lyricanna for featuring it!! <3.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You can see this youtube video speed paint here: youtu.be/NtWy2QRLVIQ (Skip to the very end of the video( 14:27) to see what this would look like as a "book jacket/cover")

Approx. 36 hours total (Used Paint tool Sai and Photoshop)

Thoughts:

~~~~The sun resembles the " blistering heat" and the swirling of the sun symbolizes the "hallucinations" Pi had gone through. Hallucinations are in the mind itself, which is why that part of the illustration is between the eyes. Most of this illustration was done unintentionally.

Overall, It was worth a shot to illustrate it. Hope you all enjoy!

Wow, you really knocked this one out the park!! It's so full of movement and emotion, it's a lot to take in all at once. The colors are so vivid and vibrant without being overwhelming and the shapes are fun and interesting to look at. Excellent work and very well deserved DD!! Congratulations! :)

I believe having patience and persistence is the way to go when it comes to learning programs like Photoshop :). It's important to just have fun with it. I started only using the brush in Photoshop a few years back, this year I've really gotten into experimenting with what Photoshop is really known for:)
