Tyrus Wong Studies






Did a few studies from the movie Bambi, which I think is one of the best uses of color, light and background design in animation. Tyrus Wong was the key background desinger on Bambi and his personal style influenced much of the film. I did these studies to practice lighting, composition and when to let the detail just go. It always surprises me how much love goes into every little detail of films, especially animation, where every line and shadow is meticulously thought out. The studies were all done in prisma and graphite and the color was added in photoshop.

Thanks for stopping by,
