warm up sketches

Or would that be called procrastination?



Quick sketches with quick colors slapped on.
Even after a few months, I still don't have a shorthand for this guy. Possibly I'll figure out a formula 3 days before the movie opens.



Off to figure out how to make this new scene work.

Thank you!

hahahaha! :)

By the way, the same thing happens in the animation. Just when you think you finally caught the personality of characters, just when you think you're starting to understand how they move, your last shot gets finaled... :P!

They're just warm ups, made on the side. None relate to any story moments, so I don't divulge any secrets. The character's look has been revealed on the web.

Now, if I was to post the villain, I'd get in trouble, ha ha!
Thanks, I'll need the good luck.

I really can't wait to see this movie ever since I read the short resume for it.

We'll try to make it good so it's a fun watching moment.

Well, I like a lot of dreamworks movies so far. So I think i'll be satisfied. :D

I was curious about the designs of the other characters too. I suppose those haven't been released yet.

Nope, sorry. None of the other character's looks have been released yet. I hope they do when they release the full actor line up, but that's not a certainty.
We should see in a few weeks (maybe).

Thanks for letting me know!

Do you work exclusively on a single character?

I'm helping with the storyboards again, so I have to deal with every characters.
Even the random ones in the background, like man #25 ;)

Thank you!
You'll have to be patient- the release is in 2 years (November 2012).

*is brain dead* What movie is this character from?

Not brain dead, the announcement for this film was made last year, and no other news released since then. There's very little about it on the web so far, so it would be no surprise if it flew under most people's radar.

One year old article:

Warming up with Jack Frost. Maybe thats why he's not cooperating with you. ;-)

Just a question: is it better if he looks more like his voice-over artist? Because I noticed that Stoic looked a lot like Gerard Butler. I mean, a lot of his expressions did.

Jack is usually cooperating...except when he feels he has better things to do than stand still on a page, ha!

The animators take a lot of inspiration from the voice actor's performance when they record. There are some nice acting moments that can be used. Animators also use themselves as reference, so a character is a blend of the voice actor and the animator's performance. The look of the character then doesn't matter much.

(I can corroborate that Rumplestiltskin doesn't look one bit like Walt Dorhn ;) )

Just watched the extras on HTTYD, hoping there would be some stuff on story. Caught glimpses of you here and there, but was sorely disappointed that there wasn't more done about the storyboard part of the movie. Still, I saw you!

In the blu-ray, there is an extra that allows to see an in screen commentary while the movie plays, and there are boards, layouts and other goodies. Some of my boards made it in :)
The crew is so big, and there are so many departments, story has their little portion of alloted time.

As time passes by, I keep making his eyebrows thicker and thicker.
By 2010, his face will be a giant eyebrow!
