Lilo's Bed Design

Being assigned to do the bed design for Lilo & Stitch, rather than going on a field trip to Hawaii, I ended up driving myself to a Rooms To Go Kids along Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando. I went straight to the bedroom showroom and started sketching. The idea of a messy bed full of stuff came from our Production Designer Paul Felix. The bed reflects Lilo's personality of being playful and different. Here are my five bed design sketches Bed 2 was the one approved.

Hey Armand,

Great bed designs and nice to see the different variations. Do you have a preference when it comes to what mediums you use, or does that completely depend on what you're drawing, amount of detail etc.?

Couldn't you have found a Rooms To Go on Hawaii !!!;)

Thanks for sharing and have a great day,

Hi Hans,

Actually my preference depends on what I feel like using at the moment and availability. There are several combination techniques that work for me in the past for example: prisma on vellum (sometimes with different marker values at the back), charcoal on smooth newsprint, blue col-erase pencil before staedler graphite, combinations of HB, 2B and 4B pencils, etc. But you're right, consideration is given on the amount of detail and size of the artwork. But I always make it a point not to stick with these formulas and enjoy what medium is at hand. Flexibility is the name of the game. Thanks and hope this helps.
