What happens when you let an Animation Legend draw in Virtual Reality?

Magic happens.

In an article on Engadget we see Glen Keane, the animation legend behind Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast, painting in 3D through virtual reality and the results are just enchanting.

“In a way [VR] is making what happens already in my head a very tangible and practical thing. It’s always been VR in my head,” Keane said in an interview. “When I animate, I think of sculptural drawing. I try to turn a character in space so I can prove to you this is not a flat drawing.”
