Stuff I did.

These paintings are from when I was still a Trainee in Disney's Talent Development Program! Not related to production, and as assignments from my mentors, Kevin Nelson and Paul Felix.

*Edit* So to answer some questions, these paintings came from various exercises and assignments my mentors gave me. The trains were to train me in perspective and draftsmanship. The Fox was to to kind of tackle painting, color, and story. I don't think I particularily aced any part of those assignments, but just doing them helps a lot.

these are gorgeous! Amazing colors and lighting.
You say trainee??
what kind of training?
Are you allow to elaborate? like was it an exercise? what was the constrains? or requirement? were you totally free?
I understand you can't talk about the subject or what story it is about, but was it given to you? or did you come up with an idea? or was it part of the exercise?

Sorry for so many questions :) but it would help me for my self teaching schedule. ^_^
