Last week, we got an in-depth look at the computer graphics (CG) used in the battle scene of the upcoming "Dragon Ball Super: Broly" movie. Along with the animation process, some story related news, like a possible "alternate dimension," was also revealed. This time, the official blog related to the movie called "Dragon Ball Movie Frontline" has given fans a tour of the workplace of the CG artists.

The process of making a scene with CG

When asked about how the CG artists produce the action scenes with CG, CG director Makino Araki replied by saying that they have to create a whole "set" for the scene with computer graphics.

A good animator is always good at drawing, but when it comes to animating with CG, you have to be careful with the model placement, the object placement, and the camera movement.

Moreover, the CG artist also showed the interviewer their latest work. As you may have guessed it, they were working on a 3D model of Super Saiyan Blue Goku. Unlike the mainstream anime shows, the characters in some specific scenes of the upcoming movie aren't made on a 2D artboard.

First, the character is fully imagined in a 3D environment, keeping in the mind the body proportions and other minor details of the model. After constructing a perfect model, it is colored using the references from the previous works.

The designing of the icy landscape

Aside from Goku, the artists were designing a 3D icy landscape for the anime. The artists first design the mountains that will appear in the background of the scene, then, they apply a texture to the mountain so that it looks exactly like a real-life snow-covered mountain.

This icy panorama has been really emphasized throughout the movie because it appeared in almost all the promotional work for the film and now the staff has also teased that a huge battle between Goku and Broly is going to take place here as well.

The interviewer had to stop the interview there because revealing any more information about the CG used in the movie would've spoiled the whole excitement. The site will be updated with the interview of the production director and co.

next Sunday. They'll mostly talk about the things they do when making a movie.

The new "Dragon Ball Super" movie is set to be released on December 14, 2018, in Japan. Funimation has acquired the theatrical rights to the movie and is planning to release it in the United States and Canada on January 16, 2019.
