Hotel Transylvania 2 Artwork

No comments

Here are a series of visual development paintings I did for Hotel Transylvania 2. Although I'm not listed in the credits, I did do some work for HT2 in the early development stages. In this assignment, we were exploring the world of Johnny's parents, still trying to figure out how to keep the look for this new location consistent in the same HT style.

I thought I would play up the contrast between the Romanesque castle architecture with no windows, to the modern glass wall architecture. What would be worse for a vampire than a glass house?

Poor Dracula, just when he thought he was going to get a little shut eye. What could be more horrifying to a vampire than the morning light?
In this image we can see the hearse driving through the Napa valley. A subliminal cross peaks out over the treetops to torment Dracula.

Why Use Stylization in Animation?

I just posted an article on my Art Page to answer the question, "Why use stylization in animation?" This is a follow up to the Tumblr article I posted a few days earlier.

I've just uploaded my latest video on my Youtube Channel on The Postcard Game. 

The postcard game is game where you trade artwork with your artist friends.

Look at this gorgeous watercolor postcard I received several years ago from my friend Paul Felix...sent to me FROM AFRICA! The Disney Studio sent Paul all the way to Kenya to do research for their upcoming film at the time, TARZAN, and he was taken by guides to a remote mountain where he was able to observe Mountain Gorillas in their natural habitat!

I'm including the back of this postcard so that you can see it has the actual postage stamps from Kenya! Sent to me, while I was at the Disney studio in Burbank working on Mulan.
Come check out my video on Youtube!

Stacy, the Barbarian

In this five-minute sketch, I'm showing the simplified building-block structure that I use to balance my figure.

Using this building-block structure, it's easy to balance the figure. You simply stack boxes in a way that looks balanced.

If the boxes aren't balanced, understand you're suggesting movement. This isn't a bad thing, if you're drawing a dynamic pose. But, in a standing pose, you'll want to suggest a steady balance.

Have you ever felt like you're tied to someone else's drama?

It's a shame, I tried to record this drawing, but somehow the file was corrupted and I lost the recording.

Figure Drawing is our gym...

Here's a seven minute figure drawing sketch from last night, drawn while using my Fractal Method.

Athletes to the gym and train, they build muscles they need and use when performing their activity. Artists are very much the same way, we need to train for our activity -- and going to figure drawing is our gym.

So, if you're an artist, get into our gym and start working out!

NO MISTY LOU!

Yes, we're at that phase in kittenhood when our little Misty Lou needs to sharpen her claws, literally at our expense.

I snapped this picture of our kitty when I caught her in the act.

BAD KITTY!
