Double Duck

Double Duck

During my summer in Angouleme, I met a lot of very cool people and one of them was an italian artist that kept talking about his time at Disney which I found really intriguing as Disney doesn’t have an animation studio in Italy but the Disney he was referring to was … a very different one.

Paperwalker

Thanks to Jean Denis Haas at Spungella, I rediscovered the work of incredible Austrian character designer Florian Satzinger. I got acquainted with his work through an interview on Character design blogspot few years ago.

AM expensive? Try the Chinese branch!

The 8 minutes Chinese flavoured AM showreel should convince you how good the teaching is!

More seriously, except the serious copyright infringements, having worked with several Chinese outsourcing companies, I have come to realize that when it comes to learning animation, copying the masters can pay off. Cutural differences aside, some chineese animators are actually really good.

creaturebox

I just found that great blog from some Insomniac concept artist. Too bad most of their sketchbooks are sold out.
I would love to model some of their characters one day.

[edit] well I just started ;-) Proportion are off, it is a very rough pass.

I am frustrated by the lack of cartoony games those days but in contrast it is such a treat to see so many cartoony movies coming out.

Here is the new “Despicable me” trailer.

Modern Martin

Modern Martin

Matt Morris just posted some more behind the scenes from “Modern Martin” short film. This time he is talking about the the technical approach of their artistic choices. It is not easy to translate 2d characters in CG and it is fascinating to hear how he went about doing that.

Cloudy draw over

Cloudy draw over

A lot of people jumping onto cg animation with a technical or a realistic approach don’t realise that animation is a craft that requires a true artistic sense.

Animation is not just about copying reality but enhancing it. People tend to forget that when creating animation, there are in full control of every single elements and they are not bound to the limitation live action presents.

There is so much you can polish on a bad movie but only the companies who pay attention to every single part of the CG animation process can create outstanding “work of art”.

Up or down?

Up or down?

I was writing a Twitter Tweet and while comparing the boxoffice takings from Pixar’s “Up” to Blue Sky’s “Ice age 3 (Dawn of the Dinosaurs)”, I realised that the numbers are actually much worse than what jumps to the eyes.
