πŸ”΄ [Live Stream] Artwork in the making

10 days ago

Play song




Hey Whaleshares!
I made this beat about 7 years ago, together with a friend. Since The Beast challenge, I have had a hard time focusing on writing new content for Whaleshares. Pretty busy with some cool projects! You most probably are going to see more about that in the future.

To give you a quick behind the scenes, I hosted a live stream showing how I processed the artwork that I made for the song my friend and I produced. Yup, seven years is a long time! I lost track of the original file since we fine-tuned it at his place, but I remember we had it published as a mixtape somewhere online.




Last week, another friend of mine messaged me and asked me if I still made some beats. He shared the link where I could download it again after those seven years(!). This surely brings back a lot of memories.

I thought it would be nice to finally create artwork for it. When I usually create art, I just put on some music to get myself into it. I picked a random picture and collected some shots of pink and white blossoms from my database. The rest? I don't really remember what I do, I just go with the flow and eventually something comes out of it.

I used these three photographs to make it.


Check out the 1 hour and 45 minute post processing in just 3 1/2 minutes!


As I mentioned earlier in a previous blog post about streaming my post processing, I will be deleting the live streams afterward. For those who were watching at the time, thanks! Please let me know in the comment section when you do, so I can reward you for your time!


Thanks for reading!

Stay tuned,
@beherenow

In life, we all have one or more milestones we are determined to achieve. To be able to look back at memories with satisfaction, creating a glimpse of a flashback that puts a smile on your face whenever your brain tickles you. I have the ambition to publish a photo-book with all of my most inspiring fine art. Containing stories and captured memories that speak, inspire and intrigue the eye. A legacy of time. With my stories, I hope to inspire people to create unforgettable memories themselves. - Ruben

I think he might be too invested on Steemit with the onboarding project etc.

Omg, what a great work of art! You are a true artist. I enjoyed the song and also the artwork. So glad to get a chance to see how it was made. Man, you are super creative! I wish I know how to use that software. Looks complicated.

I bow to you! And I thank you for sharing!

Thank you so much @offoodandart 😊. I've devoted most of my life working on how to trigger the creative part of my brain, but sometimes you just get these floods where you just need to express yourself. And from that moment when you start building up your craft, you can't replicate it again, at least, i can't... I'm in it πŸ˜‚ if you know what i mean.

Well, its never too late to start learning, what makes you not starting already? 😁

I get these moments when I have all these creative juices flowing and come up with exciting ideas that I can't sleep. I end up staying awake because there's so much I want to create and experiment on. Haha!

Wow! The final picture is beautiful and I really admire your patience in your work!

Β·

Thank you so much Ruth. We can't rob ourselves from our own time, right? It was pretty relaxing and I'm quite satisfied with the end result.

you surely know how to handle fotosoep! nice stuff man!

Β·

Thank you Aziz, appreciate it that you took the time to check it out.

Β·

Thanks @tudors :) What vibe did it gave you? Or maybe a story?

Β·
Β·

Vibe?
It's a mix of different things, i love soundtracks from TV series like reign and teenwolf, the beginning part feels just like that, those songs from indie bands and artists that make undiluted music fueled by passion; let's say Kings, Queens and Vagabonds by Ellem.
As it progresses there appears to be some EDM/Electronic something in there, let's say FireStorm by kygo.
Not saying it sounds like those songs but it has that kind of vibe to it, first semester of my sophomore year when I moved out of the hostel into an apartment with a roommate who introduced me to those kinds of music. It was that period I started getting mature and trying out things. Your beats brings back memories and feels like those songs which was the soundtrack of my life that period.

Never heard about Kings, Queens and Vagabonds - Ellem before, thank you for introducing me to it. Chill. It's quite interesting that you mention movie/tv series soundtracks and more commercial artists like Kygo. Whenever I play the piano or made beats back in the day, I could never put it under the right genre. The original is posted on the Beatmonsters channel on Soundcloud and was labeled under "experimental" (7 years ago), I think EDM/Electronics weren't hype or label back then. While I have more the storytelling/emotion background with music, my friend at the time has more experience in producing commercial music, hence the reason why he is responsible for the kicks and snares πŸ˜‰.

The end product was and still is amazing. The blend is perfect, you two make a great team.

Well, your go with the flow works great, at least for me because music piece resonates so well along with visual artwork! Nicely done!

Well done as always, it was nice to see it slammed out in the short video.

The artwork was awesome as always, music was not what I expected but paired well with the finished art.

Β·

Thanks Eroded! What did you expect regarding the music? 😏

That is such detailed work! I love the background ❀️ Triangles!

You are welcome. I can not believe such skill can be found here, on this platform. πŸ–Ό 🎢

Real nice sounds there my friend, it's exactly what I wanted to listen to right now. I really like how it flows and carries me away in a dream like state, all blissed out. Thank you for that @beherenow and your artwork is beautiful xx

Greetings @beherenow,

Lovely design.....enjoyed watching you work these online tools.

It is as you said.....it is quite difficult to tell others how the end product came to be.

Cheers!

Hey @bluejay, thank you for stopping by πŸ˜„ and thank you for your kind words.
Yes, it can be difficult to tell, so why not show, right? ;-)
