Chalkboard | Painting Backgrounds for Animation #12

This composition was drawn in a threatening perspective, heightening the drama of the shot. We pushed this even further by designing the chalkboard to reach the ceiling, so you’d need a ladder to write at the top of it.

Roof Tiles | Painting Backgrounds for Animation #11

In this episode, we focus on creating textures for roof tiles and add growth of moss to give a little green variety throughout.

Sunset Rooftop | Painting Backgrounds for Animation #10

Here, we painted just a hint of sunshine hitting the darkened rooftop, slightly teasing what’s behind it and hinting what the bird wants our main character to see.

Bathroom | Painting Backgrounds for Animation #09

To emphasize the drama of the scene it was used in, we wanted to give this bathroom a cold, sterile and slightly unsettling look. That’s why everything looks clean and symmetrical, and why we designed the faucets to have a strange, yet elegant shape.

It’s here, at last! A teaser for our animated short film ‘From The Snow-Covered Hill’.

Painting Backgrounds for Animation 08: Floor Drain

There’s something about a drain that automatically feels cold. This shot is drawn in extreme perspective and with a diffuse lighting to convey a dramatic mood. It requires painting stone and metallic textures.
