Here's one I did back in 1999 for Lilo & Stitch.

I wanted to create a soft ambient glow, so I drew this one with vellum and black Prisma pencil. You can compare this one with the graphite drawing a couple installments below.

This is absolutely -lovely-. I did do a comparison like you mentioned, and this one seems...I dunno, I'm not the best person to analyze since I never really -learned- any of this, but for lack of a better word it...glows. It's the world through the soft lens of a camera, just at the best golden hours of maybe 4pm or late afternoon. I almost said 'early morning' but there's something almost jewel-like about the texture and ambience that's more afternoonish.

(Yeah, I love it. All that just to say, I think it's gorgeous and I adore it to bits!)

Hey Marcelo,

This is just a test to see if my message goes through. I haven't been able to comment on your blog lately, it won't let me:(

Hans said...

Well, it looks like it works now:)

I love when you post these pieces! The light and atmosphere in this one is amazing. Also the textures are really really nice. The glass looks like glass, porcelain like porcelain and so on. It's stuff like this that motivates me to really draw and keep pushing myself. Thanks for sharing.

Take care,

Hans

Hans,

I switched to that Beta Blogger thing, and my blog has picked up some weird happenings. Remember a few posts back my images wouldn't load? Go figure.

I'm glad that things are working now.

The lighting work in this background is great... What a wonderful film, "Lilo & Stich" ... and what a wonderful artists it had from the beggining.
So, Marcelo, I would like to wish a merry x-mas and a wonderful 2007, too.
Best!

Beautiful background design Marcelo, wow!

Shane P said...

So quaint and relateable. The angle you chose helps support it all too. I love it. Happy Holidays

UrbanBarbarian said...

Terrific. Great depth and warmth! Your artistic power is mighty!!

Marcelo Vignali said...

Thanks again everybody.

Shane, you are very perceptive. I chose this angle because Lilo is a little four year old girl. As I explored her little Hawaiian town, I tried to picture it from her point of view. Hence, Lilo walking through a culvert when she crossed the street in an earlier posting, and this low angle point of view for this posting.

Part of designing a scene or a set, is to imagine it from the story point of view. I ask myself, whose scene is it? What is the mood? What do I want to say with my drawing? How will it reinforce the story or the characters?

I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday. Here at the Vignali household, we're looking forward to Christmas and the New Year.

Marcelo, lovely illustration from one of my favourite Disney movies (a company who sadly seem to have lost the plot in recent years compared to their heyday). Bravo, sir! Have a great holidays!
