David Revoy, Art Director of Sintel, has won a prestigious CGChoice award by CGSociety. His (2D) work is a wonderful interpretation of Alice in Wonderland with countless hidden details. David describes the creation process in great detail.
As Art Director of the Blender Foundation's 'Sintel' Open-Source film project, David Revoy wanted to 'stay busy' and decided to enter the 'Alice in Wonderland' 3DVF contest just after finishing the authoring of his DVD tutorials titled 'Chaos&Evolutions'
"During Sintel, I had to find a way to use only Open-Source software to do all the concept art," he says. "That's why I learned how to use a Linux system's Mint , GIMP , Mypaint and Al.Chemy instead of my Photoshop and Painter.
That wasn't easy because it is so different. The workflow is not the same at all."
