Here are a few color concepts I did on Epic from a few years ago. One of my jobs on the film was to create a style guide and color concept for these different locations. It was a real challenge because the colors needed to feel harmonious but chaotic at the same time. Bomba’s workstations were complete disaster areas! In a painting like the library or the surveillance room, I had to really choose what information was important for the viewer to notice and what could sit back in space. I think most of design is making this decision! 

I worked closely with the insanely talented Sandeep Menon, who came up with the original concept designs for these locations. Jason Sadler was also involved in the design of the many surveillance gadgets/electronics. There are a ton!

Once again thanks for all your great feedback! I really appreciate the responses. Hope you enjoy!

Today, VPA Illustration had Tyler Carter come in and speak to their Visual Symposium Class. A designer at Blue Sky Animation Studios and Emmy Award winner for his 2011 film “DreamGiver,” Tyler spoke about landing your dream job and the process that goes into animation. Visit his blog (http://www.tycarter.com), and watch the film on Vimeo, he’s a great artist and kind spirit.
