YEs!! very nice.. I'm amazed at the amount of work you do on these productions. But i suppose if it takes 3-5 years to make a movie its expected hehe. I wonder when you'll run out of work hehe!

Ben Mauro said...

masterful. thanks for sharing.

Doron Meir said...

Wow, this is simply amazing - even within your already-amazing quality standard!

I wonder if you would consider posting some of the process you go through doing these superb drawings? I for one would be very interested.

Hi Guys,

Thanks Jared.

He Benjamin, you're right, I was on that show for five years and produced several hundred pieces in that period. I'm only showing a selection of those but don't worry, it won't run out anytime soon, hehe.

Thanks Ben.

Thanks Doron,
Unfortunately, my process is messy and unreliable, made of fits and starts and I would be hard pushed to demonstrate anything at all.

"Unfortunately, my process is messy and unreliable"

Why else would I be interested...? The messiness of the thought process is exactly what makes it so appealing. Of course, not everybody feel comfortable displaying their process, I perfectly understand that. Thanks for answering, and thanks again for all the great artwork you're posting so regularly.

Hey Doron,
What I intended to convey is that there is no reliable process when I draw. Sometimes it comes out on the first try, sometimes several ugly attempts end up in the trash, sometimes I'll use one of those sketches to build upon or even a combination of them and work on the light table, sometimes I'll make a perspective grid and sometimes I won't. I rarely keep the inbetween stages.
