Rio art and development

Oh man, apologies for such a long time without posting anything. A new job and a new home can take a lot out of you... but alas that's no excuse... I'll try and be better. By now you might've seen 'Rio' which was the last released film I worked on at BlueSky. Well I visited some friends who are still there last week and it reminded me of how much fun that place was. So many talented folks and soo much inspiration oozing out everywhere. Just wanted to share some of my favorite assignments on that project... Hope you enjoy =]

Hey Willie!!
I too worked on Rio, Back in 2007 as a Vis Dev artist!
You may remember me??
(I had just graduated from the UK and had spent the last year making my own 2D short which was also set in Rio.)

So great to see some of your concepts and designs for Rio. Really great to see every one's magic in the planning stages, which initially helps bring the film to life.

Love you work!!
Especially loving the top pic, the establishing shot of RIO!

Where are you working now?
hope al is going well?

I certainly agree, that the Blue Sky Studio is bursting with creative talent and it was an honour to be included in among that.

All the best to you,
Best wishes and kindest regards,
Tori.x
