fun to draw

Just for antikewl: reposted page of early doodles I did when working on the "Stitch has a Glitch" story crew. I posted this back in the early days of my Blackwing Diaries blog, too, but likely no one sees it now. What the heck, they're drawings.


It was one of those videos, but the story crew worked exactly as a feature crew does; we pitched out scenes and had a great amount of freedom to mess with scenes and/or the script(yes, there was a script). I loved working on this--I had fun and talented coworkers, and best of all got to draw these characters, some of my all-time favorite character designs(by Chris Sanders, of course). My scenes in the finished film are mainly the "search for Elvis's bench/inspiration" sequence, plus some other hula-related stuff, plus other things I can't remember now. It seems like a decade ago. Maybe I'll finally post some boards here...the trouble with that is that the panels are large enough that it'd require a lot of recopying to scan them.

Thanks Jenny, I love these! I always thought Chris' designs for Stitch, Lilo and the other humans were fantastic. I was never so enamored with characters like the Grand Councilwoman, but I don't think she appears in the second movie, does she?

It'd be great to see some of the storyboards you put together. The art of the stuff you never see in the final piece is often better than the feature itself!

That said, I think I might have to go buy the DVD -- even though it's somewhat against my Disney sequel viewing religion!

Those are great sketches! Lilo and Stitch are some of my favorite designs, although I didn't see the sequel.

Alisa--shhhh! I haven't seen it either! Don't tell anyone! ; D

that dancing pose is really great! i like the balance/contrast of the arm poses and it definitely has got lots of flow.
