Painting and illustration
It will rain from tomorrow. Today the weather was warm like spring. I didn't want to miss the warm winter, so I went outside. I happened to catch the beautiful colors of the sky at sunset. It is as if a corner of the sky is burning pink. In this case, the photos make you feel sad. Because I am not a professional photographer, it is tough to express the emotions I felt in the photos.
Once, I took a picture of a local Christmas tree. But no matter how many angles I take, I can't capture the feeling of the tree standing in the middle of an empty field with various lights.
There was a unique feeling of being lonely and brilliant, but there is a limit to capturing that feeling as it is in a photograph. So I switched to digital and tried to express that emotion.
I didn't stop here, I also made a small image with Illustrator.
It seems to let you feel the difference between Photoshop and Illustrator. This time, I uploaded a picture of a ballerina in the past.
And below is the ballerina I worked with this time as an illustrator.
What are the advantages of illustration? You can visually explain from the artist's point of view what cannot be expressed in a photograph. Presenting a problem from a new angle, educating it, or expanding the scope of imagination to arouse interest. In other words, it acts as a bridge between the camera's lens and the artist's mind.
I like the fact that it acts as a bridge between the image and the artist's heart to feel it. I often have to create images that express my psychological inner power as an illustrator.
