Teamwork: Storyboards & Color Keying

In addition to his own concept work, the mighty Jang Chol Lee lent his considerable skills to the task of drawing all of the storyboards for the Delgo Project. Throughout the boards, you will see Jang’s succinct and fairly distinctive pencil work. It was over copies of his boards that I was required to provide […]

Floating Castle (Revisited)

Compare this to the August 29, 2006 entry of my 2D version done in traditional media & ‘Shop. Scott “Howdy” Dace masterfully laid down the 3D tracks and textures.

Throneroom Hall

The Mighty Sid Moye at the 3D helm (or monitor as the case may be). Normally, I’m not given to sports metaphors, but he could really take the ball downfield when it came to my thumbnails and prelims.
