Arthur Christmas 1: Neighborhood/Bedroom

 THE NEIGHBORHOOD


Above is a rendered concept design for the neighborhood/cul de sac. To achieve this shot, I "cheated" a bit by building the basic architectural elements in 3D using Google Sketch Up and placed the camera on the composition I wanted. Below is the step by step painting process in Photoshop.


Here are some of the preliminary pencil sketches before building the 3D sketch up model.






THE BEDROOM


The bedroom concept art above is based from the idea that Gwen checks her stocking in the middle of the night only to find out its still empty. Below are the thumbnails for the shot. Somehow, I felt like going symmetrical composition on this one.


More to come...

These are fantastic! I especially like the second pencil sketch. You really get a sense of the weight of the snow on the bushes. Amazing.
