Iron Giant - The "Dome
of Doom" Sequence
One - Part Two - Part
3rd and last scene I animated in the "Dome of Doom" sequence
was divided in two parts: the shooting of the orb and the
explosion. The beginning of the scene pans very quickly
and we only get a few frames to register the launch of
the orb. Every frame was crucial.
hand drawn animation I created here consists of 4 levels:
Burst (animated with a 6B pencil).
- The Electricity (animated with a 0.45mm
Orb (I roughed out a circle moving in perspective
and then had my assistant, Matt Maners, clean up the
drawings using a stencil).
Animated Rendering over the Orb (which
was also animated with a 6B pencil).
elements were all digitally treated by Andrew Jiminez who
added enhancements such as blur, luminescence, backlighting
etc. He also helped giving the orb volume by adding a green
glow around the edge.
