It’s finally here, after months of work. It’s coming in at 2 hours and 24 minutes, which I would not have even thought was possible in the beginning. You’d think that means I just ramble on endlessly, but it’s highly scripted for most of it, and tightly edited. It follows a very logical progression, covering the main arguments for and against the authenticity as a real Leonardo, what’s wrong with it, and a lot of other interesting stuff.
It includes, of course, my finalized version of the painting, which I just completed the last finishing touches on yesterday.
Part of me is just glad to be done with this project, which was astronomically more work than I envisioned. But, better than that, I pulled it off. It’s authoritative, thorough, creative, and at times has some beautiful passages. There’s lots of custom graphics in there as well. I must have made dozens of images in Photoshop that appear throughout.
I’m not thrilled with the voice recordings in the first half, because I hadn’t figured out the best way to use my mic, but other than that it’s pretty professional quality.
And my digital painting came out to my satisfaction as well. It’s a unique video that only I could have done.
And if you like my art or criticism, please consider chipping in so I can keep working until I drop. Through Patreon, you can give $1 (or more) per month to help keep me going (y’know, so I don’t have to put art on the back-burner while I slog away at a full-time job). See how it works here.
Or go directly to my account.
Or you can make a one time donation to help me keep on making art and blogging (and restore my faith in humanity simultaneously).
