Ren and Stimpy Thumbnails and BG's

Hey guys, Just wanted to let y'all know that some of the thumbnails and backgrounds that I did for Ren and Stimpy Adult Party Cartoons, have just been posted online for the first time ever on Jason Anders' FULLE CIRCLE PRODUCTIONS

The 2 x3 inch thumbnails have notes beside them about what Johnny wanted me to change about them, and some of them even have notes about what reference I used for the colours. I was using the colours from magazine photos that we had selected with Johnny, and was trying out different styles, mediums, and application of paint. Some of them were done in cell paints, and some with inks and watercolour dyes and stuff:) Anywayyy, enjoy!

oh, and here's a taste of what he's got up there...

I started out in cell paint, without any idea of the technique I was going to go with...









...Then I tried doing the sky, distant buildings, streets and stuff in dyes, like Dr. Martin's water colour dyes, and the foreground stuff (sign, mailbox and telephone pole) in cell paints...
















...which is a technique I ended up going with for most of the show (combining dyes and cell paints in my BG's). I also designed the colours of Ren for certain scenes in the show, like this one (Chris Wallace did most of the character colour design though:)

Fascinating evolutions!

Man, this is great!

I love getting to see the evolution of something I know well. John's notes show how meticulous and precise he is, and also how much faith he puts in his artists.

Which, in your case, was deserved!
