The Jungle Book finally came out a few days ago and I'm seriously happy to say that it was a wonderful story as well as visually stunning. I'm super happy to have worked on this with a ton of crazy talented people I love in an art department lead by the whimsical yet crass Christopher Glass.
I'm posting some of my favorite paintings here in no particular order. I'll add more paintings and some pencil sketches soon.

The Electro concepts were done before we knew who the actor was going to be.
These are some very early concepts from the movie that were done in the first month or so of pre-production. I was on Spiderman very briefly so didn't get much further than these designs and as far as I know, none of them made it into the film. Although this artwork didn't get much traction, it was a short and sweet job and they were a lot of fun to do.

My friends were finally able to drag me out for a little painting this past week and weekend and I had a great time. It was a small diverse group of artists from Sony, Dreamworks and the live action film industry. These were done at a park by the beach in Playa Vista. Good times!

Below are some Gouache sketches that were done around the same time as the digital. I was just sort of working on these separately and wasn't really worried about keeping the designs straight so they deviate a little. I don't think I'll do much more in this vein, but sometimes I just want to explore a couple more angles in the same theme.
