clay figure, sketch and illustration by Hergé (1907-1983)
In fact Hergé worked on 3D films and made clay figures for ‘Destination Moon‘ in 1953 and ‘Explorers on the Moon‘ in 1954. The sketch shows his detailed design for that evocative Red & White checkered spaceship.
So – it’s not hard to think that he imagined quite a detailed ’real’ version when Spielberg told him his ideas about filming Tintin. Was the concept of digital 3D indicated at that time already?
