Happy New Year! 2011

27 comments
I was poking around some old artwork and I found this one. I don't have a larger file of it, or I'd post it. I remember the detail in this piece was a lot of fun -- especially the table with all the food.

The original for this piece was drawn on velum, for a project that went no where -- from my drawing table to some dusty old vault in some undisclosed place in Burbank, I would imagine. I'm guessing I drew this about ten or eleven years ago.

I've got some other files from this project I can post, but unfortunately they're all about this size. These small jpg files are all I have left in terms of copies.

You know it's a good layout when it's so small and still works!

Peter Oedekoven said...

Too bad you just have it in such a small size,but its very nice indeed!!!

Erika said...

I love backgrounds like this. It's not just a background, it's a story in and of itself. It's a pity we can't see it bigger, but I can tell it's amazing, even at this size!

Carol said...

Gracias, Marcelo :)

Y sí, ví a Copito de Nieve en persona hace muchos años y era impresionante!!

Marcelo Vignali said...

Thanks Jez, Ted (I think), DSK, Malgorzata, Gabby, Trevor, Peter, Craig, Riabovitchev, Tokyobanana, Abhishek, Bob, Marco, Tim, and Carol!

Tiffany, that's because I'm old! I remember when I used to be the youngest guy at the studio! "Time flies when you're having fun."

Erika, Kendra, you're both right. A background drawing should tell a story, even without the characters. Too bad I can't show you all some of the details.

Charles, I'll keep poking around these old folders.

Yes Gulzar, the back is doing well. Thanks for asking.

Alessandra Sorrentino said...

Is that an italian panettone on the table? :D
Stunning piece Marcelo, it doesn't surprise me that you had a lot of fun drawing it! Every single thing in that room has its own story, I love it.

olgastern said...

wow!
beautiful you are so talented!

Marcelo Vignali said...

Thank you olgastern!

Ale, yes, it is an Italian style panettone on the table! My family is from Argentina, and it's customary to eat those during the holidays. And,what cosy kitchen would be complete without a freshly baked panettone? Thanks for noticing.

This? Is amazing. If a picture is worth a thousand words, this is worth a novel. Thank you for sharing it.
