k i loved Zootopia but can we maaaybe talk about the motherclucking designs in the Kung Fu Panda series, particularly the women? specifically tigress???
Like she totally reads as feminine and elegant but at the same time she’s completely buff and animal-shaped like the rest of the characters there aint a tiger titty or Fluff Cleavage™ in sight
And thats how the rest of the animals are treated too?! like the females and males of every species are pretty much shaped the same, besides the peacocks who obviously have males and females looking different. and then the third movie comes out and we’re treated to MEI MEI
she’s this crazy panda lady ribbon dancer who legit things she’s the hottest shit on planet earth and she is a total badass once she figures out how to use nunchucks. and like theres just so many beautiful and diverse designs for all these characters and I kinda feel like too many people praise this franchise just for its comedy when its got some killer artistry behind it as well.
Aaah, the Lethifold! One of my favourite creatures from reading the book as a child. Thanks to @zinfandelli for suggesting it as a creature, I was psyched to draw Credence with one. (And of course I saw the official design on the bluray just as I was about to start colouring, and had to change up a bunch of stuff from my sketch haha) Art blog: questionartbox
yay i’m finally glad to be able to share a summary of my work for a redesign of beauty & the beast this term from color & story! this project would have never come to its completion without the help and wealth of wisdoms from celine and grace as well!! the project is not perfect, but i had a lot of fun getting to reimagine my story. for the style and setting, i looked to inspiration from the kazakh peoples of mongolia and ancient chinese dynasties for patterning and architecture! i poured a lot of love into designing my characters for this project so i hope you can enjoy looking through it as much as i enjoyed working on it!
