I was looking back at some of the background art from Pocahontas, and loving the styling this week. So, for some quick studies, I've been doing some background re-creation paintings. Really good exercise in compostion studies...hoping that somehow the amazing layouts will just seep into my brain and make me draw that way without thinking about it :) These were all done in about 45 minutes each, using Sketchbook Pro.
In honor of Shrek the Sheep's passing....when the shearers came he hid for 6 years, and then became a national hero for Australia....awesomeness. I figure this counts as a full week since it's all the frames of animation :) But I will have to do a couple more paintings of Sir Shrek...he's too epic for words.
