The Rose Petal Footprints village sceneboard

The background paintings for The Rose Petal Footprints are a series of four scalable, high-resolution (150-300 ppi) files created using Corel Painter. Each encompasses the backgrounds for multiple scenes within the movie and employs layers to allow for the animation of characters and footprints. The flexibility of Painter and the transition from high res to 72ppi files for Flash permits almost unlimited resizing. The background for the Village was designed using Eastern perspective, inspired by David Hockney’s film “A Day on the Grand Canal With the Emperor of China.” I wanted to be able to utilize the expanded views that this form of perspective has to offer.
