Work designs


For the past couple years I've been the character designer for Nickelodeon's Kung Fu Panda TV series which recently aired. Here are my attempts at replicating the style of Nicolas Marlet, the designer of the original movie characters.

Sculpting at the Zoo







I did some sculpting at the zoo recently with live elephants. They were good models because they stayed close to the front of the exhibit and didn't move too much. It was helpful to see the way the light and shadows hit the real elephant then be able to compare it to my model at the same time.
