Studio Ghibli 3D

I werz checking out Alonso's blog like. Werrrd! And he had a link to the Ghibli blog what-ev-fah, and since I'm 'hip with the Jennys' (the Gen "Y"s), werrd. I thought I'd link to something Alonso pointed out, duh!

It's about Studio Ghibli and 3D technology. Quote atch ya: "What we're seeing on the screen is mostly computer models, with hand-drawn characters, but what's most striking is the painterly way everything is presented. Everything is a lush, wonderfully detailed watercolor painting, but moving in three dimensions. It's the perfect realization of Ghibli's brilliant sketches and storyboard paintings."

I don't know if you were trying to act cool or something frank, it was just irritating read the post twice to get any meaning out of the paragraph. My 2 cents.

This example from Disney's Tarzan gives a possible worflow for getting a painted look in 3D

and here's Michael Calwood working out a scene that feels similar to that Tarzan one.
