Andy Bialk is a character designer for Dreamsworks and has worked on movies such as Madagascar, Megamind and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. It’s so amazing being able to look through his sketches of all the different characters he has designed and seeing all the different ways they could’ve looked. It’s also inspiring to see how these sketches eventually become dynamic characters of which millions of people fall in love with. It kinda brings hope to the people who want to eventually work in the movie industry to see peoples work like this because it seems like it’s so far out of our reach, but in reality it’s right around the corner.
Alex Pardee is my favorite artist of all time. I love the dark and crazy twist he puts on things and how he just puts everything that’s in his head on paper, regardless of how strange it may seem to everyone else. It’s artists like these that inspire you to kinda of let loose and really let your own personality show in your work. I love his blog because he explains what was going on in his head to inspire his farfetched designs.
The following blog displays more than the work of just a single artist. It’s a blog with a collection of inspiring short films from all over. As an animator, I find it extremely enjoyable to see some other peoples work who are not professionally working in the field, rather than just seeing the perfect animations all the time from movies or television shows. Being able to see other peoples work who are close my my skill level really drive me to work harder and push myself.
