Wakening Close Up

19 comments
Alright, and here's a close up look at the detail.

I know...most of this small detail stuff is lost on the small card, but hopefully it makes the card interesting enough that kids will get their noses close enough to see some of the information. Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part.

I surprised myself by how well the bears turned out. After having drawn bears for Brother Bear for Disney, and then more bears for Sony's Open Season, I've gotten to know the structure of bears pretty well. So, I just "winged" the bears from memory.

By the way, this image I'm posting is taken from my actual illustration. Yes, I know, it's much darker than the printed version. I painted it darker, but unbeknownst to me someone at the Warcraft studio made the decision to lighten the image when it went to print. Personally, I like it better darker because it makes the image more mysterious. It also makes the focus of the image much clearer.

Great image Marcelo. Really dig how the wolf's gaze and foreground rock give a sense of implied information the viewer can't see.

Marcelo,
I came back and checked out EVERYTHING! AWESOME stuff man! I'm stoked that you did work for Open Season, that is one of the best animated movies of late, I truly believe it is. The best character design and overall development of the world is incredible!

Thanks for adding my link, I added yours as well, God bless, and keep in touch!

Jason, thanks for the compliments, but I want to give credit where it is due.

Although I did do character work for Open Season, the final pass for the characters was drawn by an incredibly talented artist, Carter Goodrich. He has several children's books available if you want to see more of his work.

And, although I did a lot of development work for the environments, the final background look was developed by Mike Humphries and Andy Harkness.

Carter, Andy and Mike are three of the nicest guys, and most incredible talents in the industry.

I highly recommend getting the Open Season book. It's one of the finest Making Of books you will buy. Fortunately, the same publisher is also doing the Surf's Up book.
