Color Keys from Horton Hears a Who!, Sequence 230_VLAD
I am going to be going through the vaults for the next few months with some older work, because I am unable to show any of my artwork for Epic, until it comes out on May 24.  I’m really excited to share my work on Epic, since I started working on the movie in 2007.
In the meantime, here are some keys from Horton Hears a Who!  This was one of my favorite sequences in the movie to work on.  It was so fun to shift into a limited low key color palette, after having keying so many sequences, where we painting high key and saturated.  The biggest challenge with this sequence was maintaining continuity with the light source in such a complicated set.  My inspiration for lighting this set was the movie Alien.  It was a really delicate balance to push the whole interior set into shadow, but at the same time provide just enough light, that the audience could understand what was happening and the animator’s performances would not be lost.
