Tempus Fugit – Digital Art making Of Video

New piece using matte painting and photobashing techniques in Photoshop. I created several base pieces using artificial intelligence generative art network Midjourney and brought them together and added some digital painting and photography to the mix.

Tempus fugit is latin for “time flies”. I am 37 and I see that my youth is just starting to fade away (but just starting!). Sunflowers are my favourite plant, and since they represent the Sun, I have always seen them as a symbol of youth. Despite the dark looks of the illustration, I rather see it as an encouragement to live the moment and stay in the present.

And you? Do you live in the present, the past or the future?


Update: I couldn’t resist to adapt this design to T-shirts as I wanted to wear it myself. You can find it on my Redbubble store!
