I got some India ink and some proper dip pens. I’ve been on such a rough drawing kick lately. It’s so much fun to let your mind wonder and just to draw using ink and a pen. Definitely channeling some Searle vibes today. I urge everyone out there to switch up there style from time to time. You never know what cool results you will stumble upon.
Ok, time for one final concept post for “The Good Dinosaur”. I tried to do different painting techniques to achieve sort of an impressionistic look to the pieces. It was fun to do. I used Monet’s “Hay Stacks” as the inspiration for the first one. The second one was just a quick blocking colour key pass. And Kinda a cave painting meets Lion King idea for the third one haha. All in all I had a blast with this whole series. I learned a lot and I may have to try some other unrealeaed movies soon ;)
Here is a character that I have been playing around with for a little bit. He’s supposed to be the “One eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater” I forgot about the flying part so there is no wings lol. When I went to CTN the biggest critique I got was that I never showed any rough exploratory work. So I’m going to try and show any rough drawings that I have with my designs coming up. Now I just need to invest in a proper scanner, my iPhone camera isn’t quite cutting it haha.
More concept art for Pixar’s upcoming “The Good Dinosaur”. This was the most fun I’ve had drawing/painting in a long time. I don’t really paint, but I think I’m going to do more. Every once and a while it just flows…Should I do more of this theme? Or am I going to get sued haha?
Today I went back to playing around with “The Good Dinosaur” concepts. When I met John Nevarez at CTN he told me to try and infuse some more story elements into my designs and to also work rougher and on paper. I really like this approach. It forces you to draw quick and to forget about adding all the photoshop gloss. I heard this project is shelved for the next while but if anyone from Pixar is listening,I’m available ;)
