Ego Part 3 – Execution + Time Lapse

This is part 3 of 4 of my entire Ego assignment and outlines the execution process. To see how I came up with ideas and how I chose the colours, you may look at my previous post hyperlinked below:

For colours: see part 2

For bonus and reflection: see part 4

Mediums / Technique

All the 12 images were drawn, taking about 1-2 hours per frame, depending on the complexity of the frame.


Mediums/software used:

  • Digital medium
  • WACOM drawing tablet
  • Photoshop (for Row 1 to 4)
  • MS Paint (for Row 5)


Here is a time lapse video of the entire execution process of my 12 frames.

During execution, I constantly referenced the source images I had chosen earlier, as well as the colours I had already prepared beforehand. (You can see how I chose the colours in Part 1). Since everything had already been planned out nicely, and colours already decided, the execution process was pretty smooth and straightforward for me. I think this is the first time I actually planned everything out so nicely that the execution was made seamless and less problematic.

It really took a long time to draw everything. The video above is played at 64x speed, which means that for every second you watch in the video, slightly over a minute of real time had passed. Of course, the video excludes the breaks that I took as well as transition time when I move from one image to another.

My favourite ones are the one with Darth Vader, as well as the wishing tree, which turned out too dark during the printing process:


I think this image emoted perfectly what I wanted to communicate.
