I’ll post some of the design work I did on “SING!” at Illumination Mac Guff between 2013 and 2016. In fact, I worked there as a storyboard artist most of the time but I got to help a bit the art department as well. I did mostly costume design and a bit of character development.
Here are some researches on Buster, Eddy and some Buster declinaisons and costumes (some of them unused in the final film)

Sometimes I have to stop editing because I am laughing so much!! X,D

Stars Carol Channing, Mary Tyler Moore, Beatrice Lillie and James Fox joined a glittering first-night audience including Ethel Merman, Myrna Loy, Ed Sullivan, Lee Remick, Richard Chamberlain, David Merrick and others. Julie was unable to attend due to filming commitments for Star! but she was on hand for the film’s even more lavish West Coast Premiere two weeks later on April 13 at the Warner Theatre, Hollywood.
So beat the drums cause our Millie is a thoroughly Golden Girl now!

some other character designs for “Sing!” done in 2013… Miss Crawley is my favourite character (did you know that the director Garth Jennings lends her his voice in the film?), I was afraid they would get rid of her glass eye because it’s too creepy, but it stayed til the end!
There’s also a take on Ash and her horrid boyfriend Lance, and some eeeearly designs for Eddy, who used to look like a rich dandy to progressively become a rich slacker.
A beautiful yet sorrowful set of screenshots depicting Orphan Alley, the place where Fievel’s hopes of ever seeing his family again seem dashed and gone.
The scene itself is heartbreaking, but as the camera pans out and reveals the alley full of orphaned mice children, it makes for a daunting image that accompanies James Horner’s score all too strongly.
