Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2: Designing the Roofless Restaurant, Spaghetti Twister, and Eiffel Tower

THE ROOFLESS

The Roofless was originally named Ralph's Roofless Restaurant (see if you can say that fast). The idea actually originated from the book. Since food falls from the sky, the restaurant sells utensils. I designed the interior with The Standard in LA in mind showcasing different utensils all around the place. The brightly lit tables somehow are paying homage to the legendary layout tables we used back in the days of 2D animation.






Below is my earliest design for the interior which was a quick thumbnail in PS having a bright colorful palette.



THE SPAGHETTI TWISTER

Here's an early concept design of the spaghetti tornado I did wrecking down the sardine cannery. Below are screen grabs of a 3D test with an animated spaghetti twister which I "retouched" to add a new NY skyline layout.

Here are the actual artworks I did based from that test above.


The design of the New York skyline was based from the artist Miroslav Sasek's style (remember the "This Is" childrens' book series) in his which we were alluding to early on in visual development. Same goes with Liberty. I noticed that his artworks has a slight general lean to the right meaning he's left handed. So I did the same. Kinda cool and added personality.



THE EIFFEL TOWER

These are very early concept designs that show the tower covered with pizza as well as the clouds. I designed these clouds with those tube-like formations where food supposedly would fall out from, and tendrils for fear factor. I made these tree studies thinking they might be useful for the same environment using Sasek's sensibilities but in a 3D volumetric form.





Still more to come next week...
