Interview with docop, a CGI and Collage Size Artist

B9m4i-kz_400x400

Docop is an artist who has created numerous instances of computer-generated imagery (CGI), collage images, and size-themed animations. Many of the aforementioned collages feature celebrities, such as Hollywood actresses and famous singers, depicted as giantesses strolling through urban settings. For instance, docop created an image of an immensely tall Emma Watson poised to step on some Manhattan skyscrapers. In another collage, a cosmic-sized Taylor Swift rests her arms and head on the Earth. In particular, I enjoyed an animation entitled “Pretty Penny,” which features a shrunken woman holding a ten Euro coin and also features another even smaller woman for those paying close attention. He also created at least two images of couples, such as Emory Cohen and Saoirse Ronan, as giants. Additionally, his DeviantArt page features four breast expansion-themed images. Fans can follow docop on DeviantArt and Twitter for the latest updates.

#1) Can you tell the readers a little about yourself?

Hi everyone, I’m known around the various size websites as docop. I’m an Australian lad working within academia, so I spend most of my day playing with data and writing bad programs. My day job is fairly analytic, so I like to think I balance myself out with a more creative hobby: making size artwork! I mainly focus on shrinking woman and giantess content, though I’ll occasionally branch out to resize some guys or do some expansion artwork. I make photo collages with Photoshop, video editing with After Effects, and 3D animation with Blender.

#2) How did you first become interested in size themes?

I’m one of those people who has always had an interest in size themes, even from a young age. I remember a few particular kids books and cartoon episodes with shrinking themes that I was fascinated by, and all of that just continued into my teenage years when I eventually got onto the internet. At some point I stumbled upon The Minimizer’s shrinking woman website (now sadly defunct), and everything clicked from there. I actually started out more-or-less as a strict fan of shrunken women, but I quickly grew to love growth/giantess content as I spent more time on the size websites.

I didn’t start making any size art myself until much later. It began in a pretty basic way – I had an old copy of Photoshop on my computer that I messed around with from time to time, and one day I had the thought to try my hand at editing a giantess collage. I was happy with the result and got positive feedback from some sizefriends, so I started making more. I created the docop username and my deviantart gallery shortly afterwards, and the rest is history! My branching out into other digital artistic mediums happened in pretty much the same way. I downloaded a trial version of After Effects to mess around with, and that got me into doing video edits. Some time later I saw a few YouTube videos about Blender, it looked interesting, so I downloaded it and jumped on in.

#3) Are any of your everyday acquaintances aware of your interest?

Not that I’m aware of! It might be interesting to have a few IRL folks to talk about size stuff with, but it’s not something I’d feel too comfortable bringing up. I wouldn’t mind travelling to something like SizeCon one day, I guess that would be an interesting way to bridge the gap.

#4) Are there games or films you could recommend for those stuck at home because of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)?

I’m not too much of a gamer these days, so I probably can’t give many recommendations on that front. Film wise I suppose I could suggest Ant-Man (2015), Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), Blade Runner 2049 (2017), The Secret World of Arrietty (2010), Alice in Wonderland (2010), Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016), and so on. There’s probably no connecting theme there. 😉

#5) What are a few of your favorite works from other creators?

There are too many to name! The Minimizer’s shrinking women illustrations were some of the first I came across, and many of them left a lasting impression. I had my first exposure to shrunken woman photo collages around the same time, with artists like Cariwebo and Swattr being great inspirations for my eventual work. For giantess work I was always a great fan of e10’s fantastically realistic photo collages, as well as artists like Wonderslug who was prolific around the time I began making work of my own. When talking about 3D animation it’s impossible to not mention the powerhouses that are The Wiking2000, Eskoz, and AnAlternateUsername (who also makes killer photo collages and video edits!).

I’d love to spend all day giving shout outs to a bunch of different size artists – some active, and some long dormant – but I guess there isn’t enough space here for that. Anyone interested can feel free to peruse my deviantart favorites gallery or twitter likes/retweets, as they tend to highlight artwork I’ve enjoyed.

#6) How would you describe your art?

I hope it comes across as relatively fun and chill, and even a bit silly at times. I try not to take my size art too seriously, it’s mostly just stuff I make for my own amusement whenever and where ever my mood takes me. I’m not sure if this is the best attitude to take, because although it keeps me happy, I’m always fluttering between different projects and ideas. One day I’ll be working earnestly on a new 3D giantess animation, and the next I’ll want to jump over to shrinking some ladies in Photoshop. It’s not always the best approach when it comes to actually finishing up projects – especially larger projects!

#7) Do you have any upcoming projects that you would like to mention? Perhaps a collage of Hitomi Tanaka and the Tokyo Skytree tower? 😉

Like I said with the last question, I’ve usually got a few projects on the go, though I’m not always the best at finishing them all. Lately I’ve been working on a longer form 3D giantess animation, as well as a short-story of sorts with some accompanying collages. Maybe mentioning them here will help motivate me to keep them going? As for Hitomi Tanaka and the Tokyo Skytree … well, anything is possible! 😛
