...is over, now what do I do with myself?
This is a marketing still I posed out for 'Bee Movie'
is credited for finding it online. The rough story board for it was drawn by Dave Pimentel
, the Head of Story. Sometimes it can be tricky posing these out in a very appealing manner because we have to deal with the Marketing Dept., and they'll have ridiculous notes sometimes based on silly statistics. I'm really happy with how it turned out though, I wouldn't change a thing with Barry's pose even if I drew it. The Mooseblood character was a little trickier though-for one, the camera had a wide lense which was distorting him a bit and making him seem much further away from Barry. Also, his head on the model has a bit smaller proportions than Barry. I felt like it'd be nicer to make his head a bit larger and more prominent for this, and did do a bit of translating forward on it, but couldn't push it too far before it started to seem off model or cover up more of his body. Since this was created for simply 1 frame and didn't have to move, I could really push and distort the pose just to make it look good from this view. If you looked at Barry's profile, you'd see that his entire body is stretched out quite drastically. I was hoping they'd use this advertisement somewhere cool like for the large billboard on Highland Ave in Hollywood, but I guess it just graces the web and local papers for now.
