A portrait by Александр Петров

I can’t resist publishing this portrait drawn by Александр Петров (Aleksandr Petrov), the Russian Master of Animation, the Winner of the Academy Award for Animated Short Film “The Old Man and the Sea”. I had the honor of meeting the Master during the Animayo Film Festival 2012 on Gran Canaria. Watching him presenting his unique technique of animating and discussing his approach to filmmaking was a truly amazing experience.

An excerpt from the Academy Award winning film is available on the Pascal Blais Studio website.

I realized it’s time for improving communication skills in Russian.

    Missed: nose, mouth, chin. Captured perfectly: the pose

      I think this drawing transmits the mood as well. Maybe it’s due to the pose, captured so nicely.
