So as promised, I'd be documenting a bit of the process of creating my personal film, working title Stories My Daddy Told Me. I've been painting this background FOREVER it seems. It was my first time working in painter. I'm pretty in love with that program. The brushes in Photoshop can't even begin to compare- not even in CS5. Although I've been slaving away, seemingly for years, I'm still not done with it. It still needs another 500 or so people on the beach, but you get the idea.
And a few select close ups....
I also did some little animation in the amusement park area. Check it out.
and some sweet waves that took forever to color
And all of this is for a less than 5 second shot. Ha. Such is the life of an animator I suppose.
