Concept by Collage

Concept by collage is a really fun exercise! The idea is to create concept art only using existing images (Photographs, Art, Textures, etc.)

I started the below concept with an idea and a simple sketch. Then I scoured the internet looking for the right images. Much of the pieces may look like they were already together but if you look closer you can see some of the seems. After it is pieced together I used "Curves", "Hue and Saturation", simple "Mulitply" washes, a painted in Rim Light, and a good old fashioned "Lens Flare" in Photoshop to tie it all together.

If this were for a real project I would spend time painting over the entire image to make it my own. Project completion time - 5 hrs

Mariachi-Dachi Fan Art

I had the privilege of working with Kevin Merriman as he interned with us at Disney. He recently published a Graphic Novel entitled "Mariachi-Dachi" and all of the concept artists here contributed some fan art for the book. Thanks to Kevin for letting me be a part of it!

Disney Infinity & Chip Foose

I had the opportunity to Demo our latest project "Disney Infinity" in Orlando Florida this past fathers day weekend to the public for the very first time.

Guess who showed up?

Chip Foose! The designer of all car designers, Reality TV show host (Overhaulin'), Pixar Concept artist on Cars & Cars 2, and all around nice guy. I've been a fan of his work for a long time and so it was awesome to meet him. Here's some picks and an example of his work.
