he’s a nihilist he believes in nothing

…and believe me it’s exhausting.

I’m gonna revisit this one in Photoshop sometime soon and get it right. Way too big at 9 MBs, and the drift is off, but this is the one I want to perfect. This is the one.

  1. It’s clearly coming along though. I was looking at some of the ones at If We Don’t, Remember Me – http://iwdrm.tumblr.com/ (thanks to @Brad Kozlek), and by “some,” I mean EVERY SINGLE ONE. I’m wondering how much masking they end up having to do, which made me think of Ralph Bakshi’s Lord of the Rings, and how awesome some of that looks. Remember some of those nighttime scenes where the eyes were glowing? Similar, modern implementations of rotoscoping-like techniques don’t look exactly the same to me – think Waking Life or A Scanner Darkly. They end up looking more like flat-shaded 3D animation. Not that they aren’t cool, but they don’t have the analog, gritty, handmade look that makes Bakshi’s LOTR, if not a great film, at least intriguing to the eye.

    Anyhow, I got to thinking that, with an heroic effort, wouldn’t it be awesome to take an entire film and mask out the entire background, leaving only the characters, completely divorced from their context in space/place? Anyhow, just pondering out loud…
