I just returned from NYC and the Pixar exhibit at MOMA. If you have a chance to see it, I highly recommend it. There was SO much art to see including maquettes, texture designs, animation studies, color scripts, etc…so inspiring to see! They were also showing Pixar’s new short, One Man Band, the day I went…but unfortunately we missed seeing it by an hour or so. It was so packed in the MOMA…the line for tickets stretched out the door and down almost a whole block! (Thankfully it moved pretty fast.) Anyway, I came back in the mood to create some visual development type art, so here is a full color script for my thesis, Love at First Roach. The colors you see here are general ideas for lighting and texturing, but will likely look a bit different when fully realized in 3D…feedback welcome as always.
By the way, if you can’t get to the exhibit, I highly recommend the book they’ve released which can be purchased for just $30 at MOMA’s website. While there you can also listen to the audio tour with some of the work from the show.
