I can not help myself, just feel that this video must be published and must be published now! Alexander Petrov – Russian animator tells and shows how he works on his movies! Sorry that is in Russian but it’s so interesting to watch! Alexander Petrov comments on his creative work, where he applies transparent oil paints with his palms and fingers on the highlighted glass. Using erasers, brushes and other instruments he works over small details. This magnificent technique allows him to create such vivid pictures. He says that he recalls his specific inspiration and mood while looking at still images during playback… He also told that he always has prototypes (alive people) for characters of his movies. He usually knows them very well and has a lot of pictures and videos of them not forget how them, their style of moving etc. Sometimes he even needs to make a models of objects what he is going to draw (like fish and boat for the movie “The Old Man and The Sea”).
comments always welcome.
