Dr. Li yi’s lecture: “Finding Bresson” – The influence of graphic design on my animation creation
Li yi believes that graphic software has a profound influence on design style: different graphics software makes different works, different people have different styles, different styles will lead to different effects. Like Photoshop, Flash, Painter, Coreldraw.
Flash and Coreldraw are two commonly used animation software of Li Yi. In 2005, the animation “slimming down” adopted Coreldraw software, with bold colors, detailed characters and vivid and lifelike plots.
In 2003, li yi’s early experiment of graphic language application “fragrance” – the initial combination of texture and figure.
The animation “Finding bresson” is li yi’s student work, which has been revised several times and selected into the 2017 French Fontevraud animation artist residency program. It’s a sentimental fairy tale, of the blind girl cat in the company of Bresson’s dog, who crosses obstacles and finds her own eyes, and finally finds hers, but she will never see her friend.
Finding pines is li yi’s process of creating new texture effects. The girl’s figure is finally rendered in Fumage. Smoking is a unique form of expression that makes a cat’s image more recognizable. (smoking: after branding paper with a candle, polish it with a brush/feather, etc.) They are warmer than film, but not as sultry as painting. Vivid, artistic, delicate and not rigid. Therefore, the image of a cat gives a sense of lightness and transparency. The use of smoking techniques in animation is even more unique and memorable.
