Viking sequence

copyright Les Armatures/Vivifilm/Cartoon Saloon

Some still frames from one of the flash sequences in "Brendan and the Secret of Kells".
I animated those scenes with Alfredo a few months ago, just after we finished working on our endless 2d-traditional sequence :)
It was a lot of fun, especially playing with the shapes of the vikings, which were made of ink so basically all frame by frame animation.
Just brush strokes for the crows in the background as well, while the scared monks are made with symbols.

Turin sketches

I'm finally back from my very relaxing holidays! I've spent about one month travelling across my beloved Italy and visiting some other gorgeous towns in Europe on our way back to Ireland. But it's in Turin, my hometown, that I always find my peace of mind. I've been missing it so much. The weather was so pleasantly warm even in the night and we had delicious gelato and soft, really tasty pizza like I haven't eaten in ages. :)
