The Brave Locomotive - Animation Technique

A glimpse at the 2D / CG hybrid animation technique employed to bring Linus to life:

In this rough animation frame, Linus' facial acting and all of Henry are hand-drawn in Photoshop on top of an already-animated CG render of Linus' body. Once cleanup and color are applied, additional composite filters are applied to the CG linework to closer resemble the 2D.

  1. Do you know I've just noticed? Your character, Linus, actually bears a close-up of Casey Jr, the circus engine, from Dumbo. Anyway, Andrew Chesworth. Happy New Year!
