WATCH: This TikToker Uses PowerPoint To Make Art
Staying at home pushed many of us to finally try new things. For instance, this aspiring photographer decided to try his hand at digital art. 09TikTok content creator @ethan.ppt is not like any other artists you've met, though. While most students turn to Microsoft's PowerPoint for class presentations, Ethan uses it as his primary medium for making art.
Because programs like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects require users to pay for access separately, Ethan got inspired by other PowerPoint artists to use the free software to venture into a new creative medium. He was able to make fan art of the animated film Spirited Away and K-pop group Blackpink.
Aside from putting together PowerPoint's various shapes to create art, the program also allows Ethan to instantly add simple animation to his creations. For him, it's accessible and handy because everything you need to create your artwork is in one place.
Ethan then decided to create an account on TikTok to share all the PowerPoint art he's been making as well as to show his followers a behind-the-scenes look at the process.
In this #CanBCreative episode, Ethan talks about how he got started as a PowerPoint artist:
