Sinbad Visual Development

I thought I would share a few of my early Sinbad sketches with everyone. These were done between 99'-01' and were such fun to create. Most are marker dye and a few are even oils! Only at the end of my time on this film did I enter the world of digital art. I really was a hold out and prefered traditional methods. Most were very large as I was working next to one of the true masters of design.... Darek Gogol. Man when that guy draws, he draws BIG!! Most of his pieces were at least 30x40 inches, and to just be noticed next to him I had to draw just as large. He taught me too much to list here.... thanks Darek!!
