The Cel

Painting cels, painting cels....















I think I am starting to lose it a bit....















 
...officially lost it!

A lot of the tech students here at RPI who have visited Brent's studio (some pics of studio & view from studio seen here) are in disbelief that each frame is hand drawn, insisting a computer must do something!?! I thought of the perfect analogy that I don't think they are going to be too thrilled about: the computer is like the wrist motion in a flip book, just pushing forward each picture like a thumb!...but there is some secret (hand crumbling) technology that is part of this new Brent Green animation thing that is definitely way more than computer turned flip book- more soon as the pieces (literally) weld together!
