Pig Places

After redesigning the characters of Pig Tales for Feature Films for Families. I moved on to their backgrounds. I didn't realize working on backgrounds could be so much fun! I had a great time doing these. As you can see, I'm a big fan of Disney's Sleeping Beauty and I used a lot of reference from the film for inspiration for the new Pig Tales background style. Eyvind Earle did the coolest stuff for that movie, I could never come close to anything he's ever done, but I tried to emulate a few of his techniques only in more of a poor man's, cartoony, digital, Illustrator form..... Surely he's turning over in his grave after that statement.

These, like everything you do, are absolutely amazing! This is such a better look than what they've been going with so far. Really nice stuff. You do everything well. You are a jerk for making me feel like I suck, but since that (most likely) unintentional, I will let it slide... for now.
