Tendril – A Digital Speed-Painting Video

Last week, I finally moved back to University and managed to unpack and settle down within three days (which, honestly, is a Herculean feat).


My new room (well, half-room, since I’m sharing it this year) is rather nice, but far too warm. I could literally walk around in beach garb because this is tropical paradise…until it gets too warm that is. Then it’s quite close to what I imagine the fiery pits of hell to be like!

Personal updates aside, I did manage to find the time to work on a digital piece and record it! I started out wanting to keep it quite abstract and free flowing, but if you’ve been following my work for a while, you’ll know that that never happens. So, as usual, it turned out way more realistic than I intended for it to be.

Having said that, I did go ahead and colour the grey underpainting, and it ended up looking a lot more painterly and organic, and I’m absolutely in love with how it turned out!

So without further delay, here’s the finished piece:

Corel Painter, 2-3 hours.


I have made prints available on DeviantArt and Redbubble, which you can find here:
