Tortuga Del Coronado
"An ancient turtle monster rises from the ocean... looking for a play-date."
The animated shots are traditional hand-drawn 2D animation, but instead of the traditional painted cel look, each frame was individually painted to describe form in a naturalistic style. This was done digitally using TVPaint and composited onto live-action background footage in Aftereffects; all on my Surface Pro 3.
Work-in-progress and "making-of" clips can be found at http://www.animatingforfun.com.
