The Old Man and the Sea" (1999) directed by Aleksandr Konstantinovich Petrov (Russian Director & animator) is a 20 minutes long animation based on Ernest Hemingway's 1952 novella, "The Old Man and the Sea". This movie won an OSCAR as the best short animated movie in year 1999.  I just finished watching the movie. An inspiration. I know I havent done any justice to his art. It was a quick 15 min speed painting. Hope you all like it.
