Kindom of the Sun

13 comments
Here's one I did for Kingdom of the Sun, which used to be called Children of the Sun, then Children in the Sun, but was ultimately called The Emperor's New Groove. Go figure?

We have to go waaaaaay back to 1996-7 for this one. I drew it as a pan starting up from the Machu Pichu city, going up towards the hitching post for the sun.

Again, this was done in Prismacolor pencil on Vellum (or tracing paper, I can't remember). In it I worked out the entrance, town, plaza, and the Temple of the Sun ... and of course the hitching post at the very top.

Interesting shot. Love the extreme daylight cast shadows. Nice limited value set too, to make them pop.

The control you have over your values is amazing to me. I sometimes get a little depressed looking at your pencil work, actually.

All I can say is AWESOME, my friend!

Man, this is so sweet. Even drawn as a pan it works great as a single piece. A ways back Spooner showed us a collection of these from early dev. Such great visual themes! Have any more?

Marcelo Vignali said...

Thanks everybody for the interest and kind words.

Mark, yep -- I've got a bunch of these, I worked on the project for about a year. I'll see if I can dig them up an post them. Do you know what Spooner's been up to? I haven't heard from him in a while.
