Hey everyone! These are just some quick character concept designs that I recently did for a show opening at work. The actual opening won't be quite like this, but these are just to give some kind of direction. The opening will be more of a puppet-like stop motion thing with real photo images of people and elements. Should be fun.
ALSO - Some new Pixar UP spots. Enjoy!



And another "extended clip" can be seen here on MSN
And a featurette here on the Pixar Blog

  15. The white haired/red suit man is my favorite. You have a great way of keeping the crazy proportions somehow looking real enough. Nice work!
