View Full Version : The Royals Vs. The Future

Hi everyone,
Just upgraded to Artrage 3 Pro two weeks ago, and for my first project painted some backgrounds for a short puppet movie. I painted a lot of the objects on separate layers so that I could do some camera moves in After Effects.

If anyone wants to see the final product, it's on Youtube, called The Royals Vs. The Future.

This project was a bit rushed, so I'm hoping to take my time and learn to use the different brushes. I used chalk and crayon a lot, with the palette knife to smudge things around.

Well, I don't know ANYTHING about making these animations, so for me seeing yours was an absolute gas. I enjoyed seeing how you used the AR paintings as sets. How you did the rest, I simply have no idea. But the video for me was great fun. I encourage everyone to drop by, take a look and have a good chuckle. Wonderfully inventive, pulling together a story and a message and providing a good laugh all at the same time. Big smiles from me this morning. :):)

Thanks for the comments, everyone! pai, the water and fireworks were created in particleIllusion which is great for all sorts of animated effects. The ship was a store bought wooden model, I debated painting it but chickened out. Maybe next time. But the icebergs, mountains, cave, trees, computer, church and pirate's tavern were all painted.
