Home Stretch!

Posted on Sunday 27 September 2009

I’m almost done with painting production colorkeys for Toy Story 3.
There has been lots of late nights and weekends sacrificed for this film.
I am slated to take off to a vacation in 3 weeks and I need to be done with all but a few sequences.

Anyhow, it’s one of those phases in production we all go through.
I couldn’t even go to the big Out of Picture 2 gallery show in Paris earlier this month which is a bummer. The exhibit did incredibly well I heard. Hopefully there will be a report regarding that on OOP website soon.

This is the final illustration of the calendar illustration I have done a few month ago. I posted the one turned down earlier.
