After a couple of weeks of just me and Deke in the lounge, I decided it was time to lure in another digital imaging luminary. So I mixed up some Black Russians and sent the dekeLimo for none other than digital photo-realistic artist, Bert Monroy. Well, actually, you’ll find out during this week’s show that Bert calls his stunning works of digitally-creating-something-from-nothing “hyper-realism.” If you check out Bert’s artwork here, you’ll probably agree with us and just call it amazing.
Here’s what we’ve got lined up with Bert this week:
Listen as Bert reveals some of the secrets of how he creates his amazing, gigantic, exquisitely rendered masterpieces. Unlike photographs, there is no depth-of-field nor atmospheric effect, which is what Bert argues sets his work apart from the works in the Photo Realistic movement. It’s fun to hear Bert describe his process (sketching, setting perspective, and digital painting), tools (Illustrator and Photoshop) and inspiration (life). It’s a real chance to see how the mind of a master works.
Toast of the Week: Bert toasts, you, our beloved listeners, and imparts two very important bits of wisdom: don’t forget to play and have martinis.
By the way, be sure to catch our special guest on his video podcast, Pixel Perfect, on Revision 3.
