Return of the Kung Fu Panda - last of the art







I think this is the last of the art that anyone would be interested to look at versus postering weird boring production orthos and other tidbits. These lead off with 2 boards of ideas that I pitched for the final battle sequence in the movie. They knew that there was going to be a huge showdown, but where and how was up for grabs. I took a lot of inspiration from a sequence in the movie Hero - where the season begin to change during a battle - and some of the crazy fight sequences from both Naruto anime. I pitched what I called the most expensive sequence ever. I had an idea involving Po and Shen fighting on a fiery out of control boat speeding down a river as it rains and it eventually turns to snow. Obviously they didn't do that, but some of it did stick.
