"Wonder Woman" - Origin Of The 'Amazons'

Sneak Peek recently released images from director Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman", showcasing the 'history' oil paintings animated for the film, illustrated by team leader Houston Sharp, with Igor Sid, Piotr Jablonski, Yuriy Chemezov, Roman Kupriyanov, Eve Ventrue, Max Schulz, Didier Konings and Raffy Ochoa:

"I had the pleasure and honor of working with Patty Jenkins and her team to create the animated painting at the beginning of 'Wonder Woman'", said Sharp.

"It was a huge undertaking, but I had a small team of super-talented artists to help finish it on time, and Patty & Co. were very supportive along the way.

"Each panel was painted separately, and stitched together into one massive painting. We tried achieving a classical oil painting look...

"...while working in a way that was easy for the animators to work with, which meant keeping everything on their own layers, painting behind figures, etc.). 

"It took a lot of planning and coordination between multiple artists, but it was well worth the challenge..."
