Now that my time on Kung Fu Panda is winding down, I thought I would post some of my work on the show. This is a 2-D sequence I did for one of the episodes. Each episode had one of these stylistic sequences. They were always the most challenging (but most rewarding) part of the episode. They also made me realize how much I missed storyboarding for 2-D! Enjoy.
I did this for my son's elementary school year book. Their class mascot is an orca whale named Seashore (kind of an unfortunate name, but hey, that's what happens when you let 1st graders name their mascot). Good Lord, this was a tough one. I just hope the kids don't all hate it and go, "Hey that doesn't look like me! Micah's dad is a hack!", because that would be depressing. Here's hoping they don't hate it.
