Frame by Frame Animation Tests

I have really gotten used to this pen and tablet so I am now trying to take advantage of that by being able to draw things faster and better in Photoshop.

I just took two shots from the films Suspiria and Escape from New York and exported them as a PNG sequence.  I then took each of those frames and started to trace and paint over top of each of those frames.

These are some tests, and they are SUPER time consuming so I don't know if I will finish them, although the Snake Plissken one looks pretty cool so far so maybe I will keep at it.  Its just that it took almost 6 hours to do 18 frames.

Here are a couple of images of the painting process.
