Nod Animation Test from "Epic" with the SOUND Removed

Nod Animation Test from Epic (Sound Removed) from bj crawford on Vimeo.

TM & copyright Twentieth Century Fox, All Rights Reserved This is a pencil test I did at the moment when Nod is telling Ronin that he's quitting the Leafmen. The story beat and the acting were a bit different in the final film, but this was an early concept for the moment. The audio is removed for copyright reasons. But the artwork remains. For Education Purposes Only.

the art of EPIC

The art of Epic is finally in print! There were a lot of hours put into the creation of the art for this film. I've been fortunate enough to work with these amazing artists over the past few years, and to even been asked to contribute some of my ideas to the making of this film. More to come on my contributions to the project, but first check out the book!
One of my drawings from the book: Ronin, head of the Leafmen.

Epic Trailer

After working on Ice 4, I was asked to contribute artwork and animation to this project. It was an incredible experience. Everyone involved with this film did outstanding work. It will be yet another leap forward for Blue Sky Studios.

Fun and Unfinished

"A vision's just a vision
If it's only in your head.
If no one get's to see it,
It's as good as dead.
It has to come to light!"
George from "Sunday in the Park with George"

In the spirit of a vision halfway out of the shadows...  This one is from 2009, an unfinished idea.
