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.
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.

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!
