Cinderella's Swing

July 01, 2015

Um, yes, this is a rather obvious mashup of the 2015 "Cinderella" movie and Fragonard's painting "The Swing". But as soon as I saw the movie I knew this needed to happen!

I started with a light sketch in Non-Photo Blue, then turned on the camera when I started to ink with Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens and add watercolors and a touch of Watercolor Pencils--but my camera ran out of space so the whole coloring process wasn't recorded. Oops. 

The entire picture took maybe almost an hour to complete?--the video captures the first 45 minutes. It was a good challenge to do the whole thing (except for the blue sketch, which I'd done earlier) in one sitting with minimal correction--just keep scribbling and hope any mistakes can be fixed as you go along--certainly good exercise for any paralyzingly perfectionistic tendencies I may have!

This is my first time-lapse video, so it's kind of an experiment. Hopefully next time I will have learned to keep the camera focused and steady, figured out better lighting--and remembered to keep my head out of the way!

Stop by my youtube channel & subscribe to see if I get any better at this time-lapse thing! :)
