Deep Canvas in Disney's "Tarzan"
What if you could paint a painting, then have the brushstrokes themselves come alive and move around? Rather than texture mapping, where the end result of the painting process is wrapped onto a surface, Deep Canvas animates the events that make up a painting: the brushstrokes themselves.
