Hello True Art Believers!!!
It's just another day in paradise in Pierson-Land. The finish line to my Ronnie Coleman painting is in sight. Slowly I have added substantial progress to the piece. Frankly, I have accepted the fact that I will never truly finish the piece. The reality of the matter is that none of my work is ever finished. I want to start working on other things. Working on the same piece day in and day out is not exciting. It is like doing assembly line work, very monotonous, but it is a means to an end.
I am excited for the future of my YouTube channel. New content is being uploaded weekly, mostly studio documentation and the occasional time-lapse. I am still navigating through the entire process, and trying to increase the production value with the limited time I have free. Lately the main issue that has been coming up has been editing my videos. Older videos were all RAW and unedited, but now I have been editing them through iMovie. The editing is fairly basic, adding a fade in and fade out, adding a title, some cutting out footage at the beginning and end of the video, but nothing too technical. The next thing adding another layer of depth to my videos is I am now playing around with music. I use the term music rather lightly because all it really entails manipulating pre-made sound bytes or loops. I have yet to graduate to actually making any musical notes or riffs.
I like to go by Gary Vaynerchuk's philosophy of quantity over quality. My YouTube videos may lack production value; but it is putting forth the effort and having no fear of failing that truly matter.
