Leonardo's Birthday

Today is da Vinci's 554th birthday and the short "Leonardo" has officially completed rough animation. Good ole' Herriman came in with scene 5/3 - the last one. I have to pinch myself that this day has finally arrived. The film isn't done but it has just passed THE biggest hurdle and now everything has just got a whole lot easier.

Some images from the last scene. Leo is fighting the wind, while he floats on the Arno River. Water effects haven't been done yet and the coloring is from the down shooter.

It's interesting to read about the process of creation and the evolution of this project- looking forward to seeing the short when you're done!
