i'm an illustrator, concept artist, cosplayer, and nerd with a penchant for femininity and love of all things childish. this tumblr mostly consists of art, cute things, fandom stuff, costumes, and feminism.




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.

here, have another animatic! this one’s from senior year, so it’s more recent. its a snippet of a story about an artist who falls in love with a forest sprite and attempts to trap her inside a doll of his own creation to give her a more physical form. it doesn’t work out so well for either of them. this is just the part where she gets trapped.
