So for the last couple of years our crew moved from Sofia the First to Fancy Nancy. Its a great show with the same chances to do final rendered backgrounds and ones that are more stylistically different. Which is great, allows you to stretch, grow and stay fresh. I'm loving it.
Below is the very first thing that aired for Fancy Nancy.
Its a great style that pulls from a number of influences. Its been grand being able to work on all these fantasy sections. I'll post more BG's in the next day or so.
Here are a few of the Backgrounds that I drew and painted a few years back for a Mickey shorts project through DUCK Studios. It was pretty fun. There were a couple of projects in this style that still haven't aired so I can't show those yet. So here are the ones from a baseball short.
Here's the short, all backgrounds painted and drawn by Brad Sutton
So at Disney Television Animation we have these great themed art shows for the employees to be involved in. They are lots of fun and allow you to work in a medium different then what we do everyday at the studio.
This theme was to do a piece of Art on something that makes you happy. I picked stepping on crunchy leaves. Always loved stepping on a good crunchy leaf.
I also had gone to the Animation Research Library and saw a ton of great background from
Sequence 8 of Sleeping Beauty, Goliath II, Paul Bunyan, Once upon a Wintertime, and finally Magic Highway USA. The thing with Magic Highway, USA that really impressed on me was in the
far background you would see these little towns or farms. And I always loved painting those little details that are incidental to the whole background, But there is a little world and story in there. And its fun when painting them to think about whole might live there, what vegetables are in the garden. Good Times.
Oh and the other thing I also loved that makes me happy is small little paintings. They are more intimate.
Here is some of the work that I've done for Sofia the First. I've had an awesome time. I get to create Backgrounds, Matte Paintings, Look Development, Props. I love the work and the crew is great, so many amazing people that I get to work with.
Here's another Commercial that I worked on. Painted most of the BG's for the inside of the barn. Had fun doing this, and I had a broken ankle at the time also. So being allowed to work from home made it even better of a situation.
