Kung Fu Panda 2 : Prelude to an Art Post

 
IF IT WAS A DARK PSYCHOLOGICAL DRAMA - 
rejected poster concept. I really liked this one, but it didn't make the cut.

You can consider this a teaser/trailer to the larger KFP2 art post coming in May.

I ended my run on KFP2 just a few short months ago, and most everyone is still cranking to finish. I had a great experience on the movie and was allowed to do work outside my comfort zone. I learned a lot and would kill for a chance to work on any possible sequel.

Here is the latest trailer that premiered today before Rango -

I worked on color keys for a few of the sequences in the trailer as well as providing some design work. Here's three I pulled out of a hat. Don't forget to go see the movie when it comes out in May!

Thanks for the kind words! I have to say these are pretty dope. Its like looking at a screen shot right out of the trailer.

Wicked stuff Mike. Are these paintovers of initial rough 3D comps or simply hand drawn? Either way, very cool
