More Brother Bear Mammoths

26 comments
Here's another design I did way back when I was doing character design and development work for Disney's Brother Bear.

This sketch was originally drawn on heavyweight vellum with wax pencil.

The vellum(and possibly scan) gives a nice tone to the image. Seems really appropriate. Great stuff.

Beautiful work, my friend!

Great stuff! There's so much awesome art from that film. Love the design, line-work and weight in this one.

Where's your Gandhi?!!!:p

Wow, the wax pencil really conveys the idea of sleek fur. These guys feel so solid and dimensional!

Any tips on how I can delete this spam comment in Chinese? I tried to delete it, but I get an error message. I also tried to follow the instructions at blogger, such as emptying my cache, but to no avail. Any tips?

Hey Marcelo,

Yeah I got hit by it too and we're not alone. Blogger knows about it and they're working on it, so I guess we'll just have to wait.....What do anyone get out of doing stuff like that?? Same with product spam...they must have some theory that says.."if we piss off people enough, they'll eventually buy our product"..I don't get it.

beautiful drawings. I remember being inspired by those on Brother Bear.

Thanks for the post.

Marcos Mateu said...

I just had the same problem. What I saw is, five of these 'comments' went directly to my spam box, while another three to my inbox. The '5' I could delete, the other 3 I couldn't.
Anyway, I hope they'll find a solution as Hans says.

Thanks everyone for all your comments.

Craig, Jeremy, I love drawing on vellum, it's so smooth.

Hans, I know, I drew out m Gandhi, and he's still sitting on my desk in linework.

Thanks Silver, I started out as a character designer, and I think that's what made the difference and helped my background work.

Marcos, thanks, I think the older mammoth must be from Spain.

Thanks Andrew, you're the expert so that means a lot coming from you.

Billy, your work on Brother Bear inspired me...so we're even!

Thanks Brittany, you're so sweet. Grammy showed me pictures of your little boy, what a cutie! And such a happy baby. Please say hello to everyone.

And, as an update on the Chinese spam, it's gone...for now. I was able to delete them. I guess Blogger found the bug, fixed it and I was able to delete them.
