PTD EXCLUSIVE: James Baxter/ Moses from Prince of Egypt

So I am also working on converting James' Animation Reels!!!! They are all on 3/4 inch tape so I have to find a company that can do it, which should not be a problem.  James has been a great sport about having his work on the PTD and I know we are all grateful.  Check out this test...I have a few more too!

PTD EXCLUSIVE!: Kristof Serrand... all next week!

Hey Guys,

So I have the pleasure of working with many people that I have admired as animators for a long time. Kristof Serrand is not new to me because I knew of his work very well (as will some of you once you see).  I owe a giant thank you to Rune Bennicke for mentioning my love of animation and the site to Kristof.  If you have not seen his work you are in for a real treat.  He has been animating professionally since 1981, teaching at Gobelins since 1986, and has been an asset to Dreamworks since 1995.  He is a master animator with a technical prowess that will amaze you.  The animation that you will see from Kristof will enlighten, inspire, motivate, and bring a smile to your face.... I promise. 

Kristof has allowed me to showcase many pieces of his work on the Pencil Test Depot and I am excited to share his beautiful work with all of you.  Here is just one of the clips that I will be posting.  (below is a link to interview with Kristof for How to Train Your Dragon).

Elf Test: unoffical ROUGH test for.....

This is a rough test I did in my own time after Tangled while I was at Disney.  I will tell you what film when it comes out... I am sure you will figure it out. The last few drawings are ugly, but I was drawing them pretty fast and didnt really construct the face well...
