The video above shows the process of the cover I worked on for Alexander Flores of the Dallas Observer [for their Super Bowl issue, see previous post]. He had the idea for me to record my process with video and apply a time lapse effect. He then put everything together and put it to music.
You’ll probably notice in the video that the portrait changes three times. I wasn’t extremely happy with the first one, and then it took two more tries before we were really happy. It’s stuff like this that happens a lot in the illustration process that people don’t normally see in the final piece, so it’s cool to see it all unfold in front of you in time lapse video form.
Let me know what you think. I might try this again for more illustration projects.
