El Dorado






I Thought it would be helpful to post some of the color keys I painted while working on El D. with Ramone and Scott. Ramone and I did the entire color script, which was then shot down on Christmas Eve of '97... fun times. Among the failures are these little paintings. These show the turn in my painting and design sensibilities thanks to Ramone and Scott.
We did over 100 of these paintings and then started over. Here's a few showing spain contrasting El Dorado.

Paul,
How are you? No I didn't run out of art I but I never have enough time.

The previous post was for various films about a year ago. I had the chance to stretch out from what we usually get to do. Lots of fun.
