Anna NGuyen: Destined (Digital Art)
The materials I used for this piece was the “Intuos white” tablet and the program was “PaintTool Sai”. This piece was inspired by a specific song called “To Build A Home” by The Cinematic Orchestra. I wanted to create a sentimental piece that defines my current emotions.The figure in the center is a representation of myself in a isolated place yet in a spot with warmth and light. The wings represents freedom. For my creative process, I created a layer to sketch out the mountains and painted it in with a light brown and continued to work and shade on it. With a new layer placed under it, I used the bucket tool and filled in the background with a beige color and used the brush tool to paint in the clouds and blend it in with the beige. With the brick frame, I colored in with brown and used a light beige color and created lines to emphasize the bricks. Back to the figure sketch I created earlier, I went ahead and placed a new layer under it and filled the respective colors and shaded it. After that, I merged the sketch and color layer together and blended it with the shading. After touch ups and double checking, I used the effects “Shade”, “Multiply”, and “Luminosity” that PaintTool Sai has. It allows me to add in the beautiful effect from the sun shining above the mountains. After that, I look for ways that I can touch up more with the effect tools and I’m finished!
