‘LOVING VINCENT,’ an Animated Film Featuring 12 Oil Paintings per Second by Over 100 Painters
‘Loving Vincent’ will
be the world’s first feature length painted animation, with every shot
painted with oil paints on canvas, just as Van Gogh himself painted.
Written & Directed by Dorota Kobiela & Hugh Welchman, produced by Poland’s BreakThru Films & UK’s Trademark Films. The film is scheduled for a 2017
“Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil-painting
hand-painted by 125 professional oil-painters who traveled from all
across Europe to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be a
part of the production.”
“The film was first shot as a live action film with actors then
hand-painted over frame-by-frame in oils. The final effect is an
interaction of the performance of the actors playing Vincent’s famous
portraits, and the performance of the painting animators, bringing these
characters into the medium of paint.”
“Loving Vincent is an investigation
delving into the life and controversial death of Vincent Van Gogh, one
of the world’s most beloved painters, as told through his paintings and
by the characters that inhabit them,”
intrigue unfolds through interviews with the characters closest to
Vincent and through dramatic reconstructions of the events leading up to

Every rising sign has a reason to celebrate. Each of you has a distinct look that is beautiful in the eyes of another. Inspired by an anon on @disneystrologie account who mentioned that “the risings aren’t really appearance. It’s more so the vibe that you give out that enhances your genes”. I think, whoever you are, that was a very sagacious observation on your part. Hope you don’t mind me elaborating some more.
Aries | Loud and proud, you won’t miss these individuals in a room. They ooze life out of them as if the next big race is about to begin. When you look at them you see someone who knows where they are trying to go. Direction and drive is thrilling to watch. It’s beautiful to be a part of so there’s no shortage of individuals clamoring for an Aries rising’s attention.
Taurus | Old school beauty in a new package. What is old school depends on your heritage. Taurus rising’s know where they’ve come from and have the willpower to expand on the comforts of their past. You see it in how they carry themselves. It’s as if royalty from all walks of life have graced you with their presence. Make sure not to hit your head as you bow down.
Gemini | Lively individuals with a fairy like disposition. Lithe, young movements. It’s like watching your childhood crush race you to the river. It’s like watching your brother’s older friend tease you mercilessly. Gemini rising have a youthful beauty that makes you think anything is possible.
Cancer | The watery vibe of cancer risings is like a siren call. Coy is
what you think of when you see a cancer rising. There is something
beneath the surface with them. The changeable nature of a cancer rising
lends itself well to human nature’s constantly fluctuating desires.
Leo | It’s hard to deal with the voluptuous quality of a Leo rising, but thankfully we all manage. Something about them is bigger and better. Each Leo rising works that quality like there’s no tomorrow. They are larger than life. A cinema masterpiece you are willing to watch over and over.
Virgo | Where Gemini rising is youthful and lively, Virgo risings are youthful and somber. There is an energy about them that is contradictory. You know they are calm, yet a restless spirit hides within them. A knowing smirk is a common characteristic for these rising signs and they wear it so well. It could make the most hardened minds curious as to what they know.
Libra | So charming, it’s honestly hard to be around them. You feel like you would do anything for them. In fact you truly want them to like you! If a beautiful creature such as this likes you, surely you’ve done something right. Lovely, full features.
Scorpio | It doesn’t matter if you consider them cute,
sexy, beautiful. Hell you could actually think they might be ugly, but
the enticing nature of a Scorpio rising is hard to miss. Their actual
genetics are enhance by pluto’s glow and penetrating stare. You really
can’t help but look at them. You won’t ever want to look away once they
are done with you.
Sagittarius | Nothing can go wrong with these individuals around. Didn’t you know that Jupiter watches out for his own? They are brass and loud and so much fun from a single glance. You know that you’re in for a good time when you encounter a Sagittarius rising. Do it big or go home and that includes their appearances. They take up space with their shining light
Capricorn | Sharp or strong features are common with this rising. Even without the features they are known for, there’s something commanding in the way that they move. Something about that screams power to those around them. Power is beauty in the eyes of many.
Aquarius | Trendsetters who know no bounds. Aren’t we lucky we have them? There’s something about them that’s different. Different is good because who else would we base our art off of? Who else would inspire us. An Aquarius rising knows and understands this. Even if they aren’t conventional, they certainly have a way of making us fall for them.
Pisces| A soothing wave over your soul, you’ll feel like you’re drowing in the touch of a Pisces. It is hard to get them out of your head. Their energy is elusive, yet endearing. We as humans want to figure out what makes other works which is why Pisces risings cause so much obsession. What is going on with that beautiful vibe?

Y'ALL. NEPTUNE IS DONE. WE MADE IT.
I am SO, SO excited about this series. It was a very ambitious project, and I poured a lot of time, love, and effort into it. It really tested my skills, and I am super proud of the results.
PLEASE LOOK AT THEM AND BE IMPRESSED.
Thank you so much for all of the replies, reblogs, likes, and asks you’ve sent me about this series over the last couple months. Your support and encouragement mean the world to me!
There are a few more posters still to come: Pluto and a couple other dwarf planets are in varying stages of progress. And I’ve gotten a handful of questions about whether I might include exoplanets or other space probes in future poster designs–I don’t have specific plans for those at this time, but I do mean to keep making posters in this style, so keep an eye out!
These illustrations are available as posters, shirts, and a couple other things in my shop. And since I’ve gotten this question: The cheapest way to own all of them is by buying stickers–they’re only a few bucks, and Redbubble discounts stickers pretty steeply when you buy several at once.
If you like this series, you’ll also like the rest of my 8bit space art! I try to post about one new piece each week, and keep a pretty steady queue space pixel art reblogged from other artists.
