the cover of ZED
#8 on line, I was contacted by animator, Dean
Dodrill, asking if it would be OK for him to do a
little animation clip inspired by the cover. A couple of months
later, I got this wonderful little film.
what Dean had to say about how he made the clip:
of the piece was done with CG. I used 3DSMAX and worked with
a lot of custom textures to try and mimick the original artwork.
Elements like fire and smoke are all CG, but highly stylized. Zed
was done traditionally with paper, then scanned and colored in
Photoshop. Composited with After Effects.
course, I have to give thanks to my little team here... my wife
for help with coloring, and my brother for audio."
