Drawing heavily on the action-packed composition and strong sense of movement in Tintoretto’s ‘Saint George and the Dragon’, my animation delves into a somewhat comical interpretation of the original story. A fast pace and cliché twist reflect the chaotic nature and fantastical theme of Tintoretto’s painting. The overall visual style takes advantage of layered, 2D backgrounds combined with 3D characters. The characters have been animated in Autodesk Maya, while the backgrounds have been made with Adobe Photoshop. Each scene has then been composited using Adobe After Effects.
A piece inspired by Jacopo Tintoretto, Saint George and the Dragon, about 1555
