Would it be feasible to create a cartoon using hyperrealistic oil paintings? How long would it take?
Instead of using cartoon drawings, I want to make an animation using high precision oil paintings. I can assume it would take a very long time. Does anybody have any suggestions?
One way to simplify the task would be by using 'rotoscoping', but it would work only if your 'hyperrealistic' scenes or action can actually be staged (meaning they are not, for example, imaginary aliens in an parallel universe). Rotoscoping converts live-action film images into cartoon-like art (see the movie 'Through a Scanner Darkly' or some investment fund commercials of the last several years). Or, use a do-it-yourself variant: 1. Stage a scene. 2. Photograph it. 3. Import the photo into a photo-manipulation program, like Photoshop. 4. Apply the oil-painting tools to convert the photo into a painting-like image. 5. Save the digital image as a still. 6. Repeat (almost endlessly). 7. Use an animation or film program to link all the successive images. Some of the better animation programs can also create 'in-between' images that fill smoothly between key scenes, cutting down substantially on your labor. By the way, the preceding process — with a whole lot of high-priced bells and whistles and computing power thrown in — is essentially what James Cameron used to create 'Avatar'. Good Luck!
