Unit 4: The Fantastic Voyage - Art Direction

Takashi Murakami

For my commission i would like to use an art style known as "Superflat" that composes of using a mixture of 2d and 3d images or models to create a unique and interesting art style. This art style was created by Takashi Murakami and is a known art movement in Japanese culture.

Superflat Wikipedia:

The reason I am going with this style is because i want my animation to be visually stunning to intise viewers to look at the screen and keep them fixated on the animation, while also telling the story of the cell cycle.

I can already imagine all of the cells actually being characters and having faces and being generally a happy place to be.

I imagine the inner world of the cell cycle being a bit like Beauty and the beast when all of the items n the castle are a live and magical.
