Milt kahl Day


These are Milt's roughs from Mary Poppins.  Thanks to his assistants at the time who were clever enough to make copies of his animation drawings before they worked over them so we can appreciate his first passes.

I love the way Milt drew and designed horses.  It has influenced artists to these day.  Just look at the horses in Tangled or Road to Eldorado for instance and you will see Milt's influence in them.


Aqui estao alguns rascunhos da animacao de Mary Poppins.  Gracas aos assistentes do Milt,  que foram espertos o suficiente para tirarem copias dos desenhos dele antes de limpa-los, nos podemos apreciar  os primeiros rascunhos de suas animacoes.

Eu gosto muito do jeito que Milt desenhava e criava os designs de cavalos.  A influencia de Milt esta evidente ainda nos dias de hoje.  De so uma olhada nos designs de cavalos de Tangled ou Road to Eldorado e voces verao as influencias de Milt.

Axterix and the Vikings Pencil test

Axterix and the Vikings pencil test from sandro lucio on Vimeo.


This is a scene I animated for Axterix and the Vikings, an animated feature produced in Europe.
In this particular scene, in which I animated all characters, the kid is supposed to be a great dancer but not the girl, who is a daughter of a viking and only knows how to fight. She tries to dance but her moves are more like if she was fighting.
The director told me I should look at Justin Timberlake or Michael Jackson for the kid's moves. I chose Michael and looked at his video clips and took a little bit from every one and combined into this scene, also adding a few moves of my own (On paper, of course because I can not dance).

Esta e uma cena que animei para o filme Axterix e os Vikings que foi produzido na Europa.
Nesta cena, em que animei todos os personagens, o garoto supostamente e um grande dancarino mas nao a garota que e filha de um Viking e so sabe lutar. ela tenta acompanhar o garoto e tenta dancar como ele mas os movimentos que ela faz parece que esta a lutar.
O diretor me disse para ver clipes de Justin Timberlake ou Michael Jackson como referencia para a danca do garoto. Eu escolhi Michael Jackson e tirei alguns movimentos de varios clipes dele e os combinei nesta animacao. Tambem adicionei alguns passos meus mesmo (No papel, claro, pois nao sei dancar).

Great version of Pooh



I had no idea that there were other animated versions for Winnie the Pooh and I was delighted to find this great Russian version and I feel in love with it.
It has great design, timing, animation and voices. The animation is particular good because it's so simple. I am so used to do or trying to do more complex animation and when I saw this I felt that you can also communicate with very simple animation, with no gimmicks. I thought the Russian animators did it just right, with sincerity, with no formulaic movements.
I think I will have to re-think my way of animating after seeing this, which is difficult, but gave me a lot of inspiration.
I hope you enjoy it too. There are other great episodes of it on Youtube, check them all out, specially the one with Eeyore, just great.

Eu nao tinha ideia de que existisse outras versoes animadas do Ursinho puff e achei o maximo ter encontrado essa versao Russa, pois fiquei encantado com ela.
Achei os designs fantasticos e adorei o timing, animacao e as vozes. A animacao e muito boa porque e bem simples. Eu estou acostumado a animar personagens e movimentos complexos e quando eu vi essa versao eu aprendi que pode-se tambem comunicar o que voce quer como animador com uma animacao simples, sem truques pra chamar a atencao.
Eu achei que os animadores Russos fizeram um trabalho muito bem feito com sinceridade e sem movimentos desnecessarios ou cliches.
Eu acho que preciso re-pensar o meu modo de animar depois de ter visto isso, o que e dificil mas me deu muita inspiracao.
Espero que gostem tambem. Ha outros episodios tao bons quanto esse no Youtube, especialmente o do Eeyore.

Random Stuff

This is a drawing of Dr. Facilier from Princess and the Frog.  I did this when I got back at the Disney studio to work on the film and had not been assigned to any character yet.  I was just practicing the characters I liked.
This is a Christmas card I did during the production of Disney's The Emperor's New Groove.  I used one of my favorite characters that I was the lead of.  He was a very nervous guy and so afraid of the Emperor that he would shake and stammers.  It was fun to do.  Designed by Joe Moshier.
This is a character that I created to do a story for a proposed comic book by some Disney animators.  The project never happened.
