“The Kiss” by Gustav Klimt Painted in Virtual Reality! | Art Attack Master Works


(playful music) (pencil scribbling) – Hi, I’m Estella. I painted Klimt’s The Kiss. It’s really large, and
there’s lots of gold in it. I started with a wire
brush for the grass area, and I started building up different colors to create more depth and texture. The painting itself has a tremendous, a lot of textures in it, so I want it to be
controlled at the same time as building a lot of variation. Slowly building up the different
colors with the flowers and different values within the grass. (bright electronic music) For the figure, I wanted
to have a flat background for the figure first, and then adding some of the paper brush textures, as well as, I think it was
like the flat brush, as well. And I used the straight
edge tool to create the texturing and patterning
of the man’s gown. (bright electronic music) I realized it’s a huge
challenge to paint textures in Tilt Brush (giggling). Like I have to paint
each individual stroke, and texturing in
Photoshop or traditionally is usually a little bit easier, but in Tilt Brush right now, I have to do each stroke individually, so I have to be very
intentional about each mark that I make right now. (bright electronic music) The main focus of the
piece is the kiss itself. It’s a very intimate moment, and I really wanted to
make sure I capture that, so a lot of the focal
points that I had were within the faces and the expressions of the two figures. (bright electronic music) I used the colors that are
in the original painting. So there’s a lot of purples
and oranges and yellows in the facial areas. And I had to find a way
to blend those colors with the main skin color,
which was kinda tricky ’cause I can’t mix paints in VR. It’s just trying to
figure out how to render without actually being able
to smudge it all together. One of the interesting
things that happened when I was painting it in VR, when I was doing the initial wire frame is that the male body is so
much hunched over this women, it almost looked like
it was too aggressive or too dominant, but I
softened it in the colors and just like really
kind of softened it out and warmed it up a lot more. (bright electronic music) I didn’t know know how
deep the painting should be because Klimt’s piece is so flat. It’s intentionally flat. Like the textures and the
figures blend in with each other, and they blend in with the background. So I wanted to stay true to
that to make sure the background behind the figures didn’t go too far back. The purpose for the
Klimt piece being a cube is that I wanted it to stay enclosed, stay intimate, and stay
very much so personal to the two characters
that are in the painting. It is their space. It is their world. (bright electronic music) I really loved making those dashed lines that flow from the lady’s
dress into the grass and the ground area. That was really fun ’cause it was just, it was very meticulous to get each dash in its right spot, but
the end result of it is very, like that satisfying altogether. (bright electronic music) ♫ SoulPancake (uptempo electronic music)
