I don't know about you, but I always enjoy videos of artists at work. In the process of creating. I've attended a few landscape painting workshops, and the instructors usually do a demo for the students. This is a great way to see the artist at work. Painter Scott L. Christensen is famous for doing amazing demos. You literally get to see a top rate painting unfold before your eyes.
So, just for you, I've cobbled together a video of me doing a cartoon from start to finish. The entire video was shot with my iPhone. It took a bit of experimentation. I bought a gadget that holds my iPhone and affixes to a tripod. But then I quickly discovered that, for my purposes, it wouldn't really work.
That's when I remembered the panel holder I bought awhile back from www.artboxandpanel.com. The company makes these cool portable paint palettes and panel holders that easily attach to just about any tripod. I jury rigged the panel holder to my tripod, and used a separate clamp to hold my iPhone over my drafting table.
Then I adjusted the light in my studio and took a few trial videos. You have to position your iPhone just right to shoot a video, looking down, in horizontal mode. Sometimes the video inverts, and you have to rotate it in your video edit. I use iMovie on my MacBook Pro, so it was pretty easy to edit the final video.
I plan to introduce more videos on in the future. I'm researching decent DSLR cameras. But for now, my trusty iPhone and Frankenstein video set up will have to do. And with that, I hope you enjoy this little cartooning video. The only material I used were a few sharpies, a ball point pen, and some Tombow markers. I often use watercolors, but opted for markers in the interest of time. Enjoy, and look for future videos down the road.
