Animated portraits

Another step further looking for movement in my images. These two portraits were taken with my Hasselblad X1D. After that, I animated them with After Effects. I like the result, but it still seems gimmicky and perhaps doesn’t bring the intention I’m looking for to the images.

A whole new world is opening up these months through image-generating artificial intelligences (in addition to the obvious debate surrounding them). I am convinced that they will change everything and the way of creating images will mutate into something else, which, as always, will make it difficult for a large part of the creatives, and will open the door to many others.

In the meantime, I am still looking for a way to portray my characters in a way that expresses what I am looking for.

In my ongoing artistic journey, I have found a particular fascination in digital animation, a field that blends technical skill and artistic sensibility. Every portrait captured with my Hasselblad X1D is not just a still image, but the beginning of a deeper story. By animating these portraits with After Effects, each piece comes to life, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in a world of emotions and visual narratives.

The era of artificial intelligence has brought with it a radical change in digital art. Tools such as DeepArt and RunwayML are redefining the boundaries of creativity, offering new forms of artistic expression. As an artist, these technologies not only challenge me, but also broaden my creative horizon, allowing me to explore unprecedented dimensions in the representation and animation of my characters.

Each animated portrait is a dialogue between art and technology, where I seek not only to capture the essence of a character, but also to tell a unique story. These works are more than representations; they are a window into imagined worlds, where character and emotion intertwine to create a lasting visual and emotional impact. In my gallery of works, you can explore a variety of these visual narratives, each with its own story and personality.

In addition, I am inspired by the changing nature of digital art and how online art communities, such as Behance and ArtStation, are transforming the way artists share and discover work. These platforms are not only a source of inspiration, but also a space for dialogue and creative collaboration.

As I contemplate the future, I see a world where digital animation and artificial intelligence merge even further, creating new forms of art and expression. My goal is to be at the forefront of this movement, taking my animated portraits to new levels of creativity and emotion. I invite visitors to follow my journey and discover more about my process and projects on my blog.
