"Lilo"-cized Environment








Location designs I did for my friend Tony Bancroft on a project he worked on a few years ago. The task is to "Lilo"-cize (or add a Lilo & Stitch flavor on) the environment. So I grabbed my good old prismacolor pencil and vellum paper (and a touch of PS of course). There were two different location design styles. The first four illustrates the "real world" where shapes and silhouettes are more rounded and friendly. The last two personify the "fantasy" world where it's sharp, pointed and dangerous. It was fun.

@all: Thanks for the comments everyone.

@PFC: Thanks Paul for the humbling comment. Truly, apart from Him, I can do nothing.

@Hans: Thanks, man. I checked on it and it's very interesting. There was a similar gladiator graveyard dug in Ephesus a few years back. History Channel investigated it and was able to make a movie about one gladiator in it. Maybe you can check it on iTunes. It's titled "True Gladiator". Cheers.
