The Boxtrolls (2014) | Behind the Scenes
via Animation Magazine:
- 1 week; the average amount of time for an animator to complete 3.7 seconds of footage
- 3.5 inches, the cuff-to-cuff measurement of baby Eggs’ sweater (created on an embroidery machine to produce irregular lines, like a hand-knitted garment). His little socks are only ⅝” long
- 4 scenes per week was the goal for each animator
- 14 different fabrics were used in Lord Portley-Rind’s white hat
- 24 kinds of weeds were created for backgrounds by the greens department
- 55 different sculpts of prop cheeses were made; different scale sizes were needed for wide, medium and close shots
The 7th image… oh man..how do they animate water so that the wave lights animate alongside the character animation?? Is that some 3D printed water right there that they switch out over and over??? A light projection thru glass? Dying to know how it works. Everything about how Laika makes movies is real actual magic
"Moon Animate Make Up" = Sailor Moon episode 38 re-animated by over 200 fans from all around the world.
It’s finally out! I had a chance to be a part of this project and I had lots of fun with my scene. Thanks to Kate for organizing this, she did an amazing job!
I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly. :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy! You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through. You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way! Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!
Love your art, love yourself!
I have to print this and
past it over my screeneat it so maybe it passes in my blood and reach my brain XD
Mondo have been making awesome movie and TV posters for a hot minute now. You are probably familiar with them, not least because I’ve done a few this year and I won’t stop going on about it.
Anyhow, something they haven’t done until now is video-game posters, and when they asked me to illustrate something for one of the years most promising title, Insomniac Games Sunset Overdrive, of course I was going to say yes.
This will be available at San Diego Comic Con next week - follow Mondo on Twitter for details. I might have some to sell at a later date too…
