Film design

I thought I would post a few paintings from the vaults. These were created for Sinbad, Shark Tale and El Dorado. When I begin designing I try to find the correct emotion for the story moment and then concentrate on style.
I tend to work fast as I search for the right image. I have found the more time I take on one image, the more it hurts if it dies on the wall... which tends to happen a lot in this business. The "Execution" was done in Oil and the others in acrylic. So here is a range of "lovin", some get quick lovin' and the oil is really loved..... thank god it didn't die.
Hope you enjoy.

The oil painting has a great glow to it- feels like the burning of Atlanta!

Well…I’m going to say something that you’ve probably heard many times. You really do an amazing work, Samuel.
Great invention this blog stuff…Allows you to show the word what you really love to do…your own world. And the possibility to get some feed-back from all over the world is an extra :-P
I’ve been doing some animation stuff too. If you care to take a peek…fell free

This one it's wrapped up

This one it's still waiting a "go!"

Are you involved in any animation project now?
