In order to bring Maui’s animated tattoo, ‘Mini Maui’ to life in Moana, first the animation was done with pencil on paper. Next, cleanup artists worked in negative space to emphasize the artistic quality of the character. Finally, the animation was composited onto the surface of Maui’s character model. #TechTuesday

In order to achieve a believable look to cloth and hair simulation, technical animation artists often have to direct the physics. In this Frozen #TechTuesday breakdown, two artist-created force fields are used as input to the cloth and hair dynamics simulations to influence the motion of Elsa's cape and hair.
