Cel Painting

This week we decided it would be really fun to ink an paint an animation cel. Cel painting used to all be done by hand. Each frame was carefully inked on one side then painted on the back before being shot under a camera. We have been digitally inking and painting all summer long and loved being able to learn how it used to be done.

You would never do this anymore it is such a slow process and the computer is much faster and more accurate. Gina Bradley, our friend from Disney Feature Animation came by and taught us all of the techniques. It is much different than painting anything else.
