Someone once told me if she hasn’t painted/drew for a period of time, she will go crazy.
Today is that kind of day for me, my head just wasn’t coping anymore, so I have to work, I have to make something dramatic.
Usually I draw with live dancer, but since I don’t really have much head-space nowadays to organize my own stage, I decided to try drawing movement from a video. I chose a very beautiful interpretation by Sergei Polunin, a Russian ballet dancer, to Hozier‘s song – Take Me to Church. The piece was directed by David LaChapelle. So grandeur and dramatic.
Then I put that video in loop for maybe 50 times, and draw few images simultaneously in Photoshop.
Here’s five pieces that I like most…
..and here’s the screenshots of the moments.
I have been stalking Sergei’s works for some time now, and boy, ain’t his talent precious. Can’t help but sketched a small portrait of the beautiful boy.
Now, I can breathe…
