The final result of a project in my Photojournalism class. We have been covering stop motion recently, and were required to make one of our own.
My initial plan was to create a compilation of scenes from 8 bit video games (Super Mario Bros, Legend of Zelda, Dig Dug, Pac-Man and Galaga, to be precise). However, my partner was absent on the first day of shooting, and he had the backgrounds and sprites with him. I had to at least get something done, and this was my backup plan.
This is a time-lapse of me creating my snow leopard drawing (which I have yet to upload) for a second time, specifically for this class. My creative touch was in keeping myself out of the shot at all times, giving the appearance that the pencils, tortillon, etc were creating the picture by themselves, finished up by the picture signing itself in my name
The music in the background is the intro to Gargoyles, Angels of Darkness
