For over 7 years I have been working in my spare time on a film that incorporates traditional art such as oil paintings and pencil drawings with 3D digital animation creating virtually every aspect from the minds eye.
The intended release date for the film is early June 2013.
I would like to share the last 6 months progress with all of you by posting works in the film as I approach the final renderings.
Please feel free to comment: tell all of us your experience with film & animation.
Ed, I will start next week rendering the high definition frames for the film. Yesterday, I estimated around 3 months of computer rendering time. Almost all of the sets have been built and most of the artwork is complete. as the renderings take place, I will periodical post one on this thread. Thanks to all of you artist for your encouraging words and support on this project.
Here's an oil painting that will be included in the film:
I'm in awe of your work .... Really nice work... and reflections!

Thanks Alisa! I will check out the invite....Currently I am engaged in teaching robotics, animation and engineering while producing said film and working full-times as an engineer. post production, my efforts will be poured into a start-up corporation......
...efforts will be poured into a start-up corporation ...Excellent - so much work in this!
Good luck and successful promotion ...
Any image dealing with fantasy or science fiction....
I'll keep hoping...it was a pleasure you for taking the time

After around 5 years of not drawing anything of importance (while I was in night school getting my engineering degree), I drew this pencil drawing.
This will make it in the film. I did a digital colored version of the drawing but most likely, the original version will be selected:
While extensive time and energy was put into the creation of this animated character, she was too complicated to use as the main character in the film. The main character was design for production with ease of animation in mind. So much learning came from this proto-type and many clips were developed, they are being weaved into the film along with many experimental clips.
The final scenes to be constructed of coarse are usually the most refined. The scenes below are no exception.
They evolve multiple characters interacting with one another with an environment that was created with experience from previous work.
The is the opening set of the film. Of course it is the last set and set of scenes that are being worked on during the film animation process.
The scene for the most part is empty but will be filled soon. most of the animation is already done but some close ups and alternates are needed.
For the film release date: at first this release date was slated for mid June 2013. It looks like the last part of July is more realistic and a teaser/ trailer should be out in June.
Thank you so much Roz. After the film is released, I will begin teaching 3d animation on several software platforms. one day I hope my students and I will be able to produce a major feature film that will launch their film making careers.
OUCH! My hard drive had a physical failure last Thursday evening right before I backed it up and I lost 2 months of animation because of it. The set I was working on was the most detailed and complicated of all the sets :( Oh well...., time to roll my sleeves up, take the losses, learn from the lesson and get back to work.
H Drew, these are great science fiction.
In my opinion, images are elements of creation.
If you put them together it will be movie or video game(there are other elements).
Since the process of combination usually looks linear, so I prefer the elements.
Thanks GuoJun. not interested in making video games but at one time I did work on a video game using POV as the animation code.
Now, I am busy redoing 2 months of work that was lost when my hard-drive failed. :(
Not much time left for the forum...
Thanks for all of your support!

Even though the hard-drive crash set me back a few months, it gave me the opportunity to work on three more paintings to be included in the film. Just finished this oil on canvas 2 days ago and hopefully the next two want be far behind:
