I wanted to share more about how do I create my work and after the group critics session I felt there is more to share about what is my process on creating my artwork.
Normally I will start with browsing some ideas for an inspiration, this happen normally when I travel, I see a lot of things around me and I will start sketching. I used to do it physically but now I bring my sketchbook on my iPad all the time. Sometimes my sketch could be very technical based on what I have in mind.
From there I normally start visualizing what I wanted to produce using other tools/software on my laptop, I use laptop instead of desktop PC because of its mobility. I tend to travel a lot and laptop enable me to work anywhere and everywhere.
I have a few preferred software that I work with, normally I will use Photoshop to generate some reflection map that will be use in the next process. My main software that I use to generate the visual is called Cinema 4D, this software enable me to generate a few variation of patterns from a primitives object. I will bring in the reflection map that I’ve created on Photoshop into Cinema 4D and start animating it in a loop. From there I will be using a plugin inside Cinema 4D called Octane to render out the scene.
All the scene will rendered as a sequence and for the post processing I will be using After Effects to finalize the final output with some color adjustment and some lens blur.
Most of this process is what we do in a day to day motion graphic work. It is nice to still practice what I do but produce something that is more meaningful to myself and not just for the sake of answering client brief.
