I thought, Why do we have to leave these drawings behind? Why can’t we bring them back up to the front of the image again? Is there a way that CG can kinda carry along the hand drawn line in a way that we haven’t done before?The way of blending the hand-drawn animation with CGI in the space of the story is the result of new tool called Meander. It is a vector based drawing program that allows and artist to manipulate every line after they’ve drawn it — something that Kahrs described as ‘just like painting on the surface of the CG.’ Or, in other words, the team modeled and animated the short, which then 2D artists took to paint over. Even if you’ve got a heart of steel, it’s worth it just to see what Kahrs does alongside his team.
