08: Zebra Donkey Color
Above: Zebra Donkey was a fun short to design, lots of different locations and moods.
Above: For "El Tigre" I almost always worked off of director Dave Thomas's beat boards. Dave's stuff is great, because everything is always so clearly drawn and staged. Once I got the beat board, I would go over it shot by shot with creator Jorge Guttierez, and art director Roman Laney. We would discuss mood, and emotion. By episode 08 I was beginning to get a clearer idea of what Dave, Jorge, and Roman were looking for as far as color.
I feel very fortunate to have worked with this creative group. They are all the very best at what they do... and I think it shows in the final episodes.
