Martin at the Jardin Des Plantes
I created this animation using images of the oil paintings created by artist Paula Wallace. She created several images of Martin, the bear from Ursa Minor who stepped down from the sky to explore the park Jardin Des Plantes in Paris.
Taking the digital images of her paintings, I had to cut out the characters to animate as well as fill in the missing areas when adding the background to the video image. Each painting was a different size and the clone tool became my best friend in photoshop.
