I know I've been extremely quiet on the blog. Redoing my office/art space is taking longer than I'd like so my creation has been hindered. Good part is I got a new L-shaped desk that will allow me to have a computer side and an art side. I'm sure this doesn't sound like a big deal, but I'm hoping that having my Cintiq ready and available will make me more productive.
Besides all that nonsense, I came across this video yesterday showing the breakdown of Disney's new Paperman short that will be playing in front of Wreck It Ralph. Up until this point, I had only seen stills and assumed that everything was hand drawn. I couldn't have been more wrong. its actually completely CG with some clever filters applied. It seems like such a complicated process to achieve an effect that mimics hand drawn. Kind of makes me wonder why they didn't just go with traditional animation. Regardless, its an interesting study of the effect was achieved.
