Sky Scraper Trees

20 comments
Here's one I did for Brother Bear. I was asked to draw the abandoned human's village.

The initial intent of the directors was to make the landscape look more prehistoric, so I added these giant Redwood trees to make the land look more interesting, I also thought it would give the human world a more diminuative role within nature; I wanted these trees to look like skycrapers.

Sadly, they didn't use the idea and instead went for a more straight foward/natural landscape. My job as a visual development artist is to come up with visually compelling, unique and thought provoking images, and I think this one does just that.

Stunning work Marcelo... I really like the way you lightened the base of the trees to help give them a sense of massiveness. Your work is always top notch!!

You are right Marcelo,

It did. This is another great piece. I know you did character design, but I didn't know that you did any other concept work for Brother Bear. Good job.

This is what I call "feeling the respect for Nature". Great scene, lighting, and contrasts in scale. We are so tiny.

Absolutely brilliant just like all of the work showcased here. Your ability to render these backgrounds and scenes is just phenominal!

Visually compelling is an apt description. I'm thrilled to see such masterful work come from your hand Marcello.

Hans said...

Wow marcelo! This is beautiful. I would've loved to see this approach in the final film. I really like the grandness of the redwoods, that would've made humans seem like ants. Would love to see more Brother Bear stuff:D

Have a great weekend.

Hans
