Welcome to my world of weird animating. So this is one of my favorite shots not only because of it’s quality but also because for me it was the first time directing a subtle acting and for Lena it was the first time when she was animating a subtle acting. So we were carefully managing all his fingers and eyeballs movements as precisely as his thoughts. In the most of cases animation in this film was done direct-in-color, but into complicated shots it was painted over tie-down. So the first stage was silly painted key-poses, then after several takes a rough animation by Lena was incredibly-well done. After that I was drawing clean key-poses over it and Lena was tying-it-down and cleaning-up.
Oh thank you mighty Lena for this great time and for the all the inspiration you gave to me with your hard work! (it’s a secret but now she is working on something really mad-looking)
You can check her demoreel here. And if you haven’t seen my film it is still there.
There’s a certain affinity for textiles and all things blue at Yatzer these days, so these mesmerising pen drawings by French artist Jonathan Bréchignac seem right at home here, continuing the theme. Their creator is Jonathan Bréchignac, art director of Joe&Nathan studio in Paris, France, who chose to create his seductive drawings on paper using just simple Bic pens. Each ”carpet” can take up to eight months to complete, while the very first one was in the making for a year and a half. (…)
