Trigun Brushes Animation

Inspired by the cult classic anime Trigun created by Yasuhiro Nightow, I created a time lapse video using the Brushes App for iPad. The video features illustrations of most of the main cast, music and VoiceOver from the show that fans will instantly recognize.

The Brushes App takes an artist's brushstrokes and plays them back for all to see. This gives the viewer an inside look at how the paintings are created. It was important that I created a piece of art that would pay homage to the Trigun series.

Being a longtime fan of Trigun, I spent a year on and off creating this body of work that includes over twenty iPad paintings. Series regulars like Vash The Stampede, Meryl, Milly, and Wolfwood are featured in the video. The piece was created in Brushes and exported and edited in iMovie.
