paranorman 2012

I saw that some people didn’t understand why or how The Babadook is being considered a gay icon now. It’s simply a joke that all started with Netflix accidentally categorizing the movie in their gay and lesbian section. Even still, I decided to expand a bit upon my writing from the last page, explaining why I still think he serves a a great inspiration to people, gay or straight really.

I fully welcome The Babadook as an icon.

Also, this was an incredible fun, but tedious, page to do. I won’t look forward to drawing quite this many characters on a single page for awhile, but I had a blast choosing a range of characters and creating, hopefully successful, caricatures of them. I’d be impressed if you can name all of the characters without looking them up.

“But what about the people who hurt you? Don’t you ever want to make them suffer?”

“Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there’s bad people that there’s no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there’s always someone out there for you. Somewhere.”

Series: Part 1 of Sleepy Towns

Dipper and Mabel Pines are back at the Shack for another summer. This time they are there for a little bit of training for the weirdness of the world. And Gravity Falls is the perfect place to do it.

Fully trained psychonauts Lili Zanatto and Razputin Aquato are sent on an intel mission. Last summer had a large spike in psychic activity and they need to find out why.

Cousins Coraline Jones and Norman Babcock are on a road trip. To compensate they each take one friend. Coraline takes her friend Wybourne Lovat AKA Wybie and Norman takes his friend Neil. Their parents believe that this will create a “stronger bond” amongst the group. Certainly a small town, in the woods, with enough lore to fill a trilogy, should pacify four kids.

overfedvenison  asked:

Do you know of any animated horror films? All I can think of is Coraline.

Well, I went over creepy/disturbing animation before in this post (which does include a few full-length films that could be considered “horror”), but let’s see what else I can come up with (again, I’ll try to provide links to watch them free online where I can):

  • This site lists a few more anime horror titles.

I’m sure there are more out there, but this was about all I could dig up for now.

Animacja poklatkowa

Animacja poklatkowa, jak mogłoby się wydawać, jest sztuką na wymarciu. Zapoczątkował ją Leon Gaumont w roku 1900.  Większość ludzi kojarzy Miasteczko Halloween, Gnijącą Pannę Młodą… i zazwyczaj na tym się kończy. Jednak ręcznie robieni bohaterowie powracają do świata kinematografii wraz z utworzeniem studia LAIKA.

Powstałe w 2005 roku studio przywraca do życia ręcznie tworzoną animację. Na chwilę obecną, mają na swoim koncie trzy duże produkcje - Koralina i tajemnicze drzwi (2009), Paranorman (2012) oraz Pudłaki (2014). Wszystkie filmy zyskały nominacje do Oscara.

Przejdźmy do tego, jak to wszystko powstaje.

Gdy jest już pomysł na film, artyści koncepcyjni tworzą postacie. Rysują parę ich wersji, w różnych pozycjach i o wielu wyrazach twarzy.

Rysunek przenoszony jest do programów 3D, które pozwalają na przestrzenne wydrukowanie twarzy. Z drukarki wychodzą białe, więc trzeba je wszystkie ręcznie pomalować.

Szkielety robi się ręcznie

Każdy włos takiej laleczki jest umieszczany w głowie specjalnym szydełkiem. Często są to prawdziwe włosy, kupowane ze sklepów z perukami.

Szycie ubrań to prawdziwe wyzwanie - często są maleńkie i ciężko je wykonać. Figurki ubierane są nawet w skarpetki. 

W tym samym czasie powstaje również otoczenie. Jak widać, makiety są bardzo szczegółowe. Dodatkowo muszą być zrobione w taki sposób, by można było w nich umieścić mechanizmy podtrzymujące postacie.

Przechodząc już do samego filmu - każde, najmniejsze drgnięcie na filmie jest ręcznie ustawiane. Jedyny ruch zrobiony komputerowo w animacji poklatkowej to mruganie, choć to też nie zawsze. W scenach gdzie są zbliżenia na twarz, mruganie jest zazwyczaj „ręczne”.
