Happy Holidays! This piece was made to promote a D23 sweepstakes called “23 Days of Disney Christmas” where you have the opportunity to win your own embossed reproduction of the featured pieces. Each piece is done by cast and crew Disney artists from Pixar, Disney Feature and Disney TV Animation. The site will be updating a new piece everyday until the 26th!
Here’s another old animation test I found that I still kinda think holds up. At one point I was gonna do a short about a short greedy king who tries to go on living in his castle after all his servants, tired of his demanding selfish ways, quit on him. I was gonna do it in sort of a graphic, UPA-esque inspired style, and I made this little test to see how it might look. Looking back, those colors are absolutely garish, and I sort of half-assed those columns and background elements. Now I just dig the little animation cycle I did of the king, who’s face I based off of my dad’s.
I stumbled upon a folder filled with some old rough animations I made back in 2012 (which to me feels like a LONG time ago). And surprisingly, some of them didn’t make me go “YEESH!” like they usually do.
Here’s one of them; an unfinished piece with a pirate finding “treasure” on the beach.
I’m tellin’ ya, this movie gets no respect. No respect at all. So here’s a blog showcasing some of the “interesting” animation frames of everyone’s favorite stand-up-comedian-voiced-talking one-liner-spewing dog, Rover Dangerfield.
I’d give up a BONE for youuuuuuuu…
Can we just talk about the mastery of these frames for a minute?…
I had a great time at CTN. It was my first time, and it was pretty overwhelming, but the great thing about animators and artists is that 99.9% of them are really chill and nice. So it was a very welcome environment.
I understand how you feel. That’s how I felt when I lived in New York and hearing about how much cool stuff goes on in LA. But the great thing is that opportunities don’t really disappear. You’ll be able to come out to LA at some point, and CTN will still be going on next year, and for years to come. That door will never really close.
I’m flattered! Thank you!
