“Loving Vincent” Inspired

I loved the new animated film “Loving Vincent,” which was hand painted by 100 artists in the Van Gogh style. The film inspired me to see how good, a digital oil painting effect I could get on my IPad Pro. I used the KDAN animation program, to sketch the animation, and painted the individual frames in a paint program, Art Set Pro. Background is repeated every 4 frames. It was worth the extra effort to use the paint program.

Ipad Painting Inspired by “The Painting”


What Animated film inspired me to do this Ipad painting?

It’s from “Le Tableau” a French animated feature film. In English it’s known as “The Painting.” I thought it would be fun to paint a picture like it and have brushwork. I took some liberties, but it was fun to experiment with this environment and the Art Set Pro App.

The French have other recent great animated films like “Ernest and Celestine,” “Secret of the Kells,” and “The Triplets of Belleville.” All of these movies including “The Painting” are available on ITunes.

Penguin Pencil Test

Now for something completely different! This is a pencil test for “Penguins Can’t Fly” without the ending. Some of the pauses will be longer than they are now. It will be entered in the SoDak Animation Festival. Animation created solely on the Ipad.
