an image based explanation of why we need to leave poor glen keane alone and go back to experimenting with styles

This post doesnt even need an explanation at all its just pure visual beatdown


"Tech site Pando Daily has been providing amazing coverage of the Department of Justice antitrust invesigation and subsequent class action lawsuits over wage-fixing amongst Silicon Valley tech companies and animation studios. Described as the largest wage-fixing cartel in American history, it’s the story of how some of the most powerful figures in tech and entertainment, including Apple’s Steve Jobs, Lucasfilm’s George Lucas, Pixar’s Ed Catmull, and Google’s Eric Schmidt, conspired to illegally manipulate and suppress the wages of their employees.

In Pando’s most recent piece by Mark Ames, the discussion turns to the animation studios, which have not been covered as heavily throughout the scandal as some of the tech companies like Google, Intel, and Apple.

The major point that Ames makes is that the illegal wage-fixing extended far beyond the primary players, Pixar and Lucasfilm. Through the deposition testimonies of George Lucas and Pixar president/co-founder Ed Catmull, there is evidence that other studios like Walt Disney Animation Studios and DreamWorks/PDI participated in the illegal activities to keep their employees’ wages unnaturally low. The Walt Disney Company has emerged as a central figure in the scandal, especially now that they own both Pixar and Lucasfilm, and it should come as no surprise that as they worked to pay their employees less, their stock prices and profits shot to all-time highs.”




How DreamWorks Draws ‘Dragon 2’ Faster, Better

DreamWorks, you are phenomenal.

…I’m pretty sure I just jizzed my pants. THAT SOFTWARE






yo this song was my jam

this movie makes me so happy, not just because of the religious aspect but also because I study Egyptology and the fact that they used the right pharaoh, his personality and all, and all the Egyptian gods always makes me fangirl. plus the music is kickass.

I mean, have you heard Plagues???

Dreamworks, with the voices of Jim Parsons, Rihanna and Steve Martins. Based off the book “The True Meaning of Smekday”


Can I just…? For a moment? Please? 

Seriously, I don’t HATE either Frozen or Tangled, but from a character design perspective, they had a difficult time getting variety over TWO movies. Two FANTASY movies, might I add! No. Instead, all the women look like clones and the men are starting to get that way. (Bonus! Elsa and Frozen-Mom’s hairstyles! As well as… Flynn’s, Hans’ and Frozen-Dad’s?)

That’s one of the reasons why I’m gaga over RotG. In one movie, they managed to get so much variety and character within them.

I know almost nobody else cares, but I made this handy chart in case people need proof that I’m not crazy.




Chris Sanders (Co-Director of Lilo & Stitch, How To Train Your Dragon, The Croods) shares some unused storyboards from his latest film The Croods.

I think I’d rather just watch 90 mins of Sanders drawing storyboards than watch the finished movie; these are beautiful!

More storyboards here, too.

gd the movement and everything in each panel is so great

My friend and I were just talking about how you know the producers and/or studios were the main drive of an animated film when the storyboards are better than the actual finished product.  The artists and creators know what they’re doing, but the people with money don’t let them do it.

augh the form and movement he manages to get is so amazing. i know he tends to draw all his women with the same look, but i maybe would rather have the main character be more like this than what seems to have made it to the movie… though you can still see some chris sander-y remnants in the final character design.
