um.. guys? I am absolutely not okay at all.
you see this picture of a shipwreck?
when a mirror is placed at a certain angle, it creates a portrait of jules verne
Opening today, this interactive art exhibition, has a creepy, otherworldly feel to it, or maybe the idea of bouncing up and down above a dark gaping chasm is where the creepy factor comes into play? But anyone who has seen the movie The Descent will know what I’m talking about.
"A small Welsh town has the perfect subterranean adventure for you: the world’s largest underground trampoline. Just unveiled in Blaenau Ffestiniog, North Wales, Bounce Below is a network of trampolines and slides mounted to the walls of an abandoned slate mine at heights of 20 feet to 180 feet off the ground."
Just For Fun - Elsa and Anna Toddlers - I love the concept art that Disney artist Jin Kim did for Disney’s Frozen. I really liked the drawings he did of both Elsa and Anna as toddlers and was inspired to see how they might work as hand drawn characters. Based on his concept drawings, I did these rough head turns to get an idea of how they might look from different angles. Just for fun.
These have been fun to make! I just really love all the sketches. Source leads back to the artist’s blog.
I rarely reblog. But, since it’s my own art , I thought I’d make an exception. A collage of some of my recent sketches. Now, with added backgrounds! :) fun! :)
Bring you child to work day!
Today was “bring your child to work day” here at the Disney Store home base. SO, I had the pleasure of showing a room full of kids how to draw Mickey Mouse. After all, it all started with a mouse. The above images are of the worksheet I sketched up for today’s lesson. I wanted to break it down and give a step by step approach on drawing Mickey (and Minnie). Taking it a step further and also a nod to my animation background, I wanted to show how to take the same basic principals and show them how to change it up. Is Mickey happy, sad, mad? How would that look? And, finally how to turn his head. They are quick sketches, but I think they helped get the point across. Maybe even you’ll give it a try! :)
Princess Kida - Atlantis (C)DISNEY Steve Thompson
Throwback Thursday! I remember working at Disney animation studios at the time this film was in production. And, while I was busy working on another film, I loved the way Atlantis looked. Unfortunately, it never really got the attention I think it deserved. I’ve been thinking lately that I need to watch this film again. So, here’s my morning warm up doodle for today. Kida!
