TAKING A LINE FOR A WALK





“Drawing is taking a line for a walk”
Paul Klee


Here is a sneak peek at my final film project,

I really like the idea of drawing as a thinking process, instead of just a way to produce pretty picture

(if the result is eventually a pretty picture there’s nothing bad about that, then)





from now on all my posts will be also on my new site blog

Hero from Mars

fearless hero on a planet far far away
kind of inspired by Edgar Rice Burroughs's Jhon Carter from Mars 
(and Frank Frazetta's illustration of it)
trying a new color method

RETRO GEORGE/charcter design





Starting with an idea for a bad guy
it turned out to be something halfway between:

-Oscar Wilde
  (the sunflower is a direct reference from his habit to put one in his pocket)

- Eli "Big Daddy" La Bouff
  from The Princess and the Frog

- The Monocle
  from The Umbrella Academy

and maybe some touch of Mark Twain
(mustache and old gentleman look I guess)

PLAGUE DOCTORS/style 2

Different style approach
easier to animate
(maybe...)
