'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)

Creepy locations

These are two locations I designed for two different films while in Europe.
The 'bird cage' was part of the Asterix project, although I don't believe it ever made it to the film.
I usually had a few standard viking figures to plug into any design for scale, this was one of the fellows.

Although the roman guys might look like they also come from an Asterix story these are actually from 'The Three Wise Men', produced in Madrid by Animagic Studios and directed by Antonio Navarro.
The location is Herod's palace, therefore the whole thing looks mean... and dark...

CA 92328

From the old days.
(do the 90's qualify as old already?)

Yes it was (...and here is the first for 2009)

Happy New year everybody.
And here are some more Viking environments that come with it. The longship in the middle of a storm belongs to a storyboard piece for the intro of the film, while the mean looking guy on the top deck is purely inspirational, as I was trying to get into the subject.
The layout belongs to the typical scene of a grand dinner with the men of the Village as they decide what evil deed to do next.
