Sergio Pablos: Tantor

I while back I had a few conversations with Sergio Pablos when he came to LA on business and through email. Many would agree that Sergio is one of the best living animators. He is a fan of the Pencil Test Depot and I know there are many fans of his that visit the site. He has graciously donated some of his fantastic work from Tarzan to the site. If you have not been to his site you can go here:


Some people may not know that Sergio created Despicable Me and was a major force behind the characters of Blue Sky's RIO. Visit the site and see the other goodies that him and his team are working on!


Thanks Sergio

Sergio Pablos is also a great teacher. He's been my mentor at AM for my 4th semester and he taught me so much.
Especially with his dissections frame by frame of his best shots. Nothing better than this to really understand the intentions behind every choice an animator makes while animating.
