Stained glass knight - "Young Sherlock Holmes"

ILM modelshop crew member Jeff Mann was photographed in costume against a grid to provide reference footage for the computer animation. Standing on the right are Pixar artistic supervisor John Lasseter and visual effects supervisor Dennis Muren. A clay and glass maquette of the knight was digitised using Pixar’s Polhemus three-space digitiser, with the resulting geometry rendered in vector form on an Evans and Sutherland monitor.
