More visual development from the canceled “Zodiac” project done for ODW/Dreamworks. Layouts by Production Designer Michael Isaak and painted by myself. I was the Art Director, we worked on the project for about a year.
Visual development for ODW/Dreamworks project I was Art Director on for about a year before it was shelved. Layout by Michael Isaak, character design by Willie Real. Obvious similarities to other animated movies with animals, dressed in clothing, in a big city.But this project was being worked on a few years before Sing and Zootopia.
Me painting a background pan for Sinbad that I split into two parts and later assembled in Photoshop.You can see the paintings still in progress behind me in the photo on the right.The Acrylic Cel-Vinyl paint,tupperware and mixing cups, my basic set up, can also be seen.
Production background painting for El Dorado. We had started using Photoshop on this movie, usually just to be able to paint overlays on board instead of cel.We then would scan the painted overlay(sometimes multiple overlays) and the background, separate it out from the board and assemble it with the background in the computer using Photoshop.This painting was actually all traditional and did not have an overlay.
