I'm Tony, and this is my inspiration/art promotion blog. I post things that inspire me, and sometimes things that I or my friends make that need the extra push. Expect to see lots of great painting, photography, illustration; just generally visual arts of all kinds! Also resources and reference posts that I find useful.

I always try to source art that I post here, but I fail sometimes. If I ever post something with a missing/incorrect source, please drop me an ask. Same goes for tagging triggers, or even just asking me how my day is. It's always open! :)

The Boxtrolls (2014) | Behind the Scenes

via Animation Magazine:

  • 1 week; the average amount of time for an animator to complete 3.7 seconds of footage
  • 3.5 inches, the cuff-to-cuff measurement of baby Eggs’ sweater (created on an embroidery machine to produce irregular lines, like a hand-knitted garment). His little socks are only ⅝” long
  • 4 scenes per week was the goal for each animator
  • 14 different fabrics were used in Lord Portley-Rind’s white hat
  • 24 kinds of weeds were created for backgrounds by the greens department
  • 55 different sculpts of prop cheeses were made; different scale sizes were needed for wide, medium and close shots
