some old stuff - Lilo and Stitch

One of the fun projects that I worked with my peers at WDFA was Lilo & Stitch. Here I post few colorkeys, concept paintings and production BGs that I did for the movie. All the pieces were traditional watercolors except some keys.
The directors set the bar so high - trying to make a movie visually like the Disney's classics - like Snow White , Pinocchio and such. Everyone was kind of freaked out a little bit in the beginning - since watercolor is not the most forgiving medium to handle. I guess we did it all right- it' turned out to be one of the most beautiful Disney movies in the end IMO.

incredible watercolors! you are right, the film is a masterpiece. when I started to work on it and chris and I were joking, it would be nice if it could look like ELMER ELEPHANT we had no idea it would in the end.

I don't know your experience working with Ric Sluiter, but I had a short talk with him when I was in school, I was really impressed when he could tell that my film had a russian painting influence and other stuff. Someone with an eye like that, it'd be hard for him not to be a brilliant art director.

I'm so glad I discovered these again! I loved them when I was in school, and I still do! I just wish they showed the credits in the art books. But finally, a name to associate with the piece. Great work
