Ratatouille Visualization

By now, I’m sure everyone has heard of Pixar’s most recent movie, Ratatouille. If you haven’t seen it, I HIGHLY recommend it. Not only is it beautiful animation and a nice story, but it’s about food. I love Pixar. There are a few scenes in the movie when the main character, Remy, and his brother, Emile, are eating and experiencing the taste of some exquisite cheese.

There was pretty taste visualization going on done by Michel Gagne.

Around 1400 drawings were created for the animation. Each one was scanned, painted and composited using two softwares: Animo and Photoshop.

That’s a lot of hand drawings, but quite nice results. Good job, Michel.
