Malware Digital Painting by Maheen Sana

Home > Winners > #110569


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Malware

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Digital Painting

INSPIRATION:
Malware was born out of my first encounter with heartbreak. And while I realize that this encounter might not have a whole lot of significance in the grand scheme of things, I think it was valuable nonetheless because every painful experience teaches you something. I did not create this painting to come off as bitter. I felt like for the sake of my sanity, I had to take the heartache from that particular experience and transform it into a work of art which exhibits all the events of that time and you can take a look at all the relics with a melancholic familiarity.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Everyone copes with heartbreak in their own way. The idea and execution give Malware its unique essence. There's duality in nature. You can't know happiness without sadness. Malware translates this concept with various contrasting features. The use of black and white, chaotic foreground and calm background, hardness and softness. All create a romantic, yet sombre atmosphere. There's just something very profound about creating beauty out of sorrow.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Oddly, our difficult times connect us with other human beings more deeply than anything else. I hope that Malware can evoke a sense of melancholic familiarity within the audience. Even if it is just an audience of one.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project started on July 9th, 2019 from the comfort of my home and was finished and uploaded on January 26th, 2020.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
I used Adobe Photoshop and a Wacom graphics tablet to create this digital painting. I initially intended for the drawing to be made against a white background. However, upon experimenting with different colors, I realized that my idea was portrayed better with darker tones. I used a Mechanical Pencil brush in Photoshop to achieve the rough graphite texture. In addition, I used the noise filter to create a film grain finish to the painting.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
This is a 1270 by 1066 mm digital painting. The entire painting was made using a brush tool in Adobe Photoshop. I used the Mechanical Pencil brush tool to achieve the rough graphite texture. To finish the painting off, I added the noise filter in photoshop to create a film grain texture.

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Due to the nature of this artwork, most of the material that I required was available to me from my personal experience. However, I still had to research a couple of things. Deciding the part of Venice I wanted to display, reading the story behind Daleks, Trojan Horse and the Roman betrayal. I chose the digital medium for this painting because I find it to be very efficient and flexible, which made it perfect for this spontaneous project.

CHALLENGE:
Working on a detailed piece with a mechanical pencil is definitely challenging and occasionally, you'll find yourself on the verge of abandoning the piece altogether. Fortunately, with Malware I had this urgency of getting it out there in the world. The hardest part for me was painting something so exposing while living in a society that thrives on shaming people for showing emotional vulnerability.
