A colloge of my favorite characters from movies, shows and books that inspired me over the years to become an animator and storyteller.
All characters belong to Disney, Pixar, Warner Bros, Sony, DC Comics, Marvel, Jim Henson, Nickelodeon, Paramount, Aardman, Universal, Ghibli, Gainax, Bandi, Mainframe, Hasbro, Charles Schulz, Scholastic, and The Learning Company.
For some reason when I think of Tenzin, I think of Rabbit from Winnie the Pooh. Which lead me to draw this idea. I was going to draw Korra as a bear or a panda, but a sea otter seems to fit her character better.
Legend of Korra belongs to Nickelodeon. Winnie the Pooh belongs to A.A. Milne and Disney.
After seeing the new villian in wedding special of My Little Pony, Queen Chrysalis' unicorn/insect design inspired me to draw what Waspinator would look like as changling. It would be an awesome cross over seeing these two together.
Beast Wars and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic both belong to Hasbro.
An old idea of what if Square Enix included FullMetal Alchemist characters into their Kingdom Hearts game series. Like Belle's father, Winry finds herself in the Beast's Castle and can't help but wonder how the enchanted servents operate on their own.
Beauty and the Beast belongs to Disney. FullMetal Alchemist belongs to Hiromu Arakawa.
I always wanted to draw Poison Ivy and Audrey II together because it would be an awesome team up. And after hearing the negative response toward the Lorax movie, I knew this was the right time to do it.
The Lorax belongs to Dr. Suess.
Poison Ivy belongs to DC Comics/Warner Bros.
Little Shop of Horrors belongs to Alan Menken and Howard Ashman.
Last weekend I watched The Green Lantern to see whether it was decent or horrible. It gave me what I was expecting. The editing was terrible, the dialog was weak, the characters were poorly portrayed, and the constant use of the word "fear!" was annoying.
What's funny is that when the film shows us the planet Oa, all I could think of was the Emerald City in space. Which inspired me to draw what if the Cowardly Lion was in the film. Next to him is Rei's grandfather from Sailor Moon as a guarding, quoting from the English dub.
Green Lantern belongs to DC Comics and Warner Brothers. The Wizard of Oz belongs to MGM / Warner Brothers. Sailor Moon belongs to Naoko Takeuchi and Toei Animation.
Thought I'd draw something special to celibate one of my favorite holidays of the season. I wanted to post this before Halloween, but I didn't have the time to complete it yet. The result was worth the effort and I'm happy how it turned out.
I had a great Halloween last year and I'm looking forward to celebrating it this year!
Raging Ape was a storyboard animatic I made at SCAD. It's about an old lady whose walking home from her grocery shopping who encounters a wild angry gorilla. I'm hoping to develop it into a completed film in the future.
