'The Prince of Egypt' and 'Asterix'



I don't recall ever posting up, neither on my blog nor on my website, any POE work. Not that I have many copies left, but here is one of them. A pencil sketch for the chariot race sequence at the beginning of the movie introducing the two brothers together.
As I didn't use any computer technique back then the color effect was achieved by playing around with the original on the color copy machine. (© Dreamworks)

The Asterix design was for the bad guy's lair, which never made it to the screen.(© M6 - AFilm)

The dynamism of the chariot sketch is absolutely fantastic... the horse's posture are great. I am happy to watch this work. :)

Dos grandes imágenes Marcos.
La primera está llena de fuerza y dinamismo y la segunda me evoca un poco el estilo oscuro y genial de Tim Sale.
Saludos.

Quina força que te el dibuix de la carrera de cavalls, per cert, vaig veure la pel·licula fa un parell de mesos que ja no m'en recordava. Una pregunta, mai utilitzes llapis blau? sempre ho fas tot directament amb llapis?
