This is a Rotoscope Animation x Digital Painting of Kendrick Lamar. I simply took my favorite shot of Kendrick Lamar in the “family ties” music video and rendered a new composition in 1920x1080.
In the process it became clear that the subject needed to be rotoscoped & I just applied additional elements of “expressions” to add a bit of spice. I painted about 10-13 illustrations which allowed me to get a non-smeared animation of 10fps.
I honestly can’t even count how many times I’ve failed in this project. There was a lot of trial and error but I’m very happy with how this turned out. The amount of patience and attention to detail required for this project is crazy, but I definitely learned a lot from it.
