I guess now that the movie is out and the “art of” book is in stores, I can show some of the work I did for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2! Please pick up the “art of” book; it is, in my unbiased opinion, really gorgeous and full of amazing art by talented artists… not just me. I feel really honored to have so many of my paintings included in it!
These paintings are some examples of the many color and lighting keys I did for the film (I will be posting more of these for sure!). I feel particularly proud of this sequence. Dave Bleich, the film’s Art Director, created a beautiful color script for the movie, but this sequence was to deviate from the original color script… and as a result, Dave really let me take the lead on deciding the tone, lighting and color. It was an incredibly rewarding experience! I learned so much about his process of coming up with the color and lighting, and this was my chance to really put those lessons into action. Thanks, Dave, for letting me make the grass green.
More Cloudy 2 art to come soon!
