I need to consolidate my website with this blog, since it's so hard to update the website... In the meantime, here is a list of shots I animated on Up:
- Young Ellie and young Carl are sitting inside the tent, in Carl's room. Ellie flips the page on her adventure book and says "Paradise Falls... A land lost in time", "I ripped this right out of a..." "Who knows what lives...??" "Well, I'm saving these pages..."
- After Carl finishes cutting off some balloons to bring Russell down to the ground and says "Here, I'll give you some change for the bus fare." Russell walks over to pick up his backpack.
- The long shot where Russell is trying to climbing on top of Carl to get up to the house, and starts kicking him in the face. Carl says "Now when you get up there, go ahead and hoist..."
- The two shots where Russell is on the bird's feet and they are swinging from side to side. "Please, I'll get the food for him, I'll walk him, I'll change his newspapers!"
- Russell only in the shots when they're sitting by the campfire. The 5 shots begin when Russell says "Phyllis isn't my mom!", "But, he promised he'd come to my explorer ceremony..." until the close-up of him holding his Scout Badge Sash.
- The 1 shot where the bird hugs Russell goodbye, taps Carl on the head, hisses to Dug and leaves.
- Muntz walks from the shade into the light "...all a misunderstanding. My dogs made a mistake." He coughs and says "Yes", and mocks himself "Adventure is out there!"
- After Carl puts the picture back in the Adventure Book, all the shots where he flips through the pages until he looks up and stops himself from crying and starts closing the book.
- Russell gets inside the Spirit of Adventure through the window and lands on the floor, "Yes! Don't worry Kevin...". He starts the leafblower and Gamma's jowls start blowing in the wind.
- 3 shots whew the bird, Russell, Dug and Muntz break through the window, Muntz' foot gets caught and he falls back with the balloons.
I've been trying to paint some more lately. If I get anything looking decent, I'll post it up here!
Here's some more of those Santas I drew... One Bad Santa and two good ones. I was playing with the coloring on Photoshop with the Bad Santa... I couldn't decide which one of the two I liked better... What do you guys think?
Here's my version of Santa Claus for this year! I wanted to somewhat re-invent his look, so I was looking into something more believable, as if he was really just an old man living in the north pole. I drew a bunch of other versions, most of them way more stylized.
I was curious about the way his modern look came about, so I looked it up online... Gooooogle is the best thing ever!!! Apparently that whole myth giving full credit to The Coca-Cola Company for Santa's modern look is not true. They only popularized the look that was already cretead by Thomas Nast and Clement Clarke Moore in the 19th Century...
I was a little late for Christmas this year, but hopefully you'll enjoy it! Happy New Year everyone!
Wow, it's been 4 months since the last time I posted anything here... This is something I've been working on for a friend's book. Been doing some sketches to figure out the look and the mood of the story. Check back for more!
This was done for a homework for a drawing class taught by the legendary Barbara Bradley. She was pushing us to experiment with different media, so I ended up using some materials I usually try to stay away from.
How cool would it be if this deepwater monster could flash lights off his eyes?
I love playing with texture in a drawing... Wouldn't it be sweet if this scene was animated with these textures? If character was very stylized, with bold pencil strokes as lines; and the environment was rendered super realistic... Contrast is what gets my attention. It's a big principle of design...
