V&A: Leonardo da Vinci Life: Animated Illustrations

Leonardo da Vinci: Animated Illustrations. ‘These animations aim to bring some of Leonardo’s visions to life. ‘The animations have been made using various techniques: a combination of traditional drawn animations and computer-generated animations. The biggest task was to bring those two together, and try as far as possible to emulate the drawings in Leonardo’s sketchbooks.’

‘In some ways Leonardo made it easy for us, in other ways not, because of the great complexity of his vision, and the graphic complexity of his drawings. It’s been quite a task to capture this complexity in animations, without changing it in such a way that they are no longer Leonardo’s drawings animated but our drawings. There’s some compromise there, but as far as possible the results come directly from material contained in Leonardo’s sketchbooks.’
