I am BNMotive, but you may call me BN. In short, I am a Mexican college student currently working on my Illustration mayor. However, what truly matters is that I come here to share with you my experiences as an artist. Why? Well, I didn’t have much guidance as a kid, and so I want share some of my experience with the readers.
-my art techniques (occasional tutorials)
-stories and photos of my trips
-and my views on entertainment. (like games, comics, movies and shows).
Talking about sharing experiences, I think the 90’s entertainment made a huge impression in my life as an artist. Those were the times in which I was completely oblivious of story archetypes and clichés, so I was very open to anything I could get my hands on even if i didn’t understand it’s intended meaning. however, never the less we can all agree that we could never wait for new episodes of our favorite programs to show on TV, specially the ones with our favorite theme songs.
now days I can always come back and look back at that precious nostalgia and re-interpret all those theme songs and shows as an adult and bring a whole new light of appreciation for the things I love.
take Dragonball and Digimon in this case, back then I only saw the Mexican version since it was the only thing available at the time. but seriously, how was I supposed to know that all these great series came from a different country called Japan? and to make it even more intriguing, how was I supposed to know that each version of these series came in different languages and had variety of editing choices? knowing that information blew my mind. so I was hooked to know even more about the matter.
thankfully the internet these days are great sources for such things, so now we can appreciate the work of the people who made these shows possible. I went out there and did some small research, so here are some of the interesting samples I got for DragonBall and Digimon. personally, I like the intros the same in their own particular ways. in addition to that, I found a very interesting site that links to the portfolio site of American composer Shuki Levy. this man was involved in an incredible repertory of series that probably most of us grew up with, so give it a try and see what you can find, you could probably find something that you had forgotten in the past! also, here I sign out. enjoy!
