Psyque en líneas

So, back on working on my thesis. For those of you who don't know, I'm working on a project trying to link Design with Animation - the connection is there, I know. I'm just pointing it out - and the project's culmination is producing a nano-budget, hand-drawn animated shortcut. I'm almost through with the theory, which means I must start now with the shortcut so I can finish it (hopefully) at around December.

For this piece? Ink and markers. I work really fast with this medium - so I may post everything with this for the next few months, if I even manage to do some personal work. I should.

This is oddly fitting, since for many reasons I had been delaying posting this piece since I made it on April - and remembering today is the anniversary of the bombing in Hiroshima, I decided to stop doing so.

This is my portfolio's "main piece", for lack of a better term. It is my interpretation of Miyoko Matsubara's testimony of what happened that morning. I came across it while doing a research on the bombing, and shocked me so I decided to try and illustrate it.

I used two medium to try and capture the feeling of what happened, and create a more intense 'before' and 'after' with the color palette. They're meant to be viewed in sequence, so perhaps we could try and define them as a Colored Storyboard.

A video of Miyoko Mitsubara's testimony can be found here.
