It was fun to make, and true to myself I started this little project having no idea where I was going or its purpose.

Wow, that was cool! Thanks for sharing!

It really did illustrate your creative process. I almost typed here that I write the same way, but I can't quite say that. There are very distinct differences. if I made painting video to illustrate my process and how I create, it would not be stop motion--it'd have to be full video.

Picture thick, black lines from full Asian calligraphy brush. Still, I would paint the first stroke or two and decide what it looked like before continuing. I set my "course" a lot sooner than you would, I think. One way is not better than the other, just different.

Really interesting.

That was cool. I might have to try one of those movies. LOL

I thought it looked like a man with a big nose, crazy hair and very blue eyes.

Thanks!

Well, if I really start analysing how I write vs. this video, I might not say it is a 100% match. I might not have so many different colours, so to speak, in so many directions, but overall, i think it illustrates my process really well.

The movie was SO fun to make!

A man with blue eyes? Hm... I think I can see this...And this is the beauty of many interpretations! :
