“Conscience” Video Art Making Of: Turning phone pic into art!

Hey fellas! This week I show you in my video art making of series how I turned a very old, low quality photo I took with my phone in a 2010 trip to Brussels with my friend Natalia, into my artwork “Conscience”. It was just a rudimentary photo I took while we were waiting for a train in Gent to go back to Brussels. You know, turning the ordinary into extraordinary is my mission, so in the video you can see the source material as well as where it goes with some Photoshop magic. And yes, I’m aware that this illustration was originally released back in 2015, but as I have been doing lately with some old work, I have remastered it and fixed some problems to raise the art for the occasion, like enhancing the color, fixing the brightness and recalculating some parts of the original composition  🙂

The video art includes a time lapse making of by showing the layers as the image builds, and an animated version of the finished artwork as well as some zoomed in details.



Since I took the time to restore and remaster it, I have also made available prints of this artwork again. If you have prints from the 2015 version, now they’re limited edition as they have been discontinued everywhere! Click in the image below to land into my “Conscience” shop page:

I hope you’re enjoying these short clips I’m making to adapt myself to the new “Reel times” we are living. If there are any illustrations you would like to see turned into a video, let me know in the comments!
