Manolo from The Book of Life.
WIP of tonight’s brief Livestream featured the lovely Sanchez Twins from the Book of Life! They’re the baes and no one can tell me otherwise. I need a movie of just them kicking butt and taking names.
This movie man, makes me happy to actually see it happen. Like, woah, an animated feature about my fave holiday? I can die happy now.
I need to make more excuses to draw them.
A Xibalba doodle that I took too far.
I couldn’t help myself, I just watched the movie today, and I’m full of Book of Life movie juices and feelings I cannot describe to you.
If you get the chance, go watch this movie, especially if you have a cultural connection to Mexico and the Day of the Dead. It made me miss my younger years when I lived over at Mexico and celebrated this awesome holiday.
Jorge Gutierrez always reminded me to be proud of my heritage, man.
More Book of Life fun, a bunch of stuff I did for the Grandma character. She was originally designed by Sandra Equihua. On each character, the art team (and modeling) had the task of figuring out how to transfer their designs to a 3d object that still retained it’s original graphic appeal. This was also the first character I helped out on in the production, back when we were still doing texture swatch breakouts for each material on the character.
She was extra fun to paint because she is so old and broken down, we decided to add a lot of detail to show her old age through her textures, so she’s very wobbly, uneven and knotted.
Okay, more BOL posts later, but enough for today :)
That’s right! I watched Book of Life last Friday, and I absolutely love it!
For all of those who don’t think this is a good movie, I promise you, this movie has been made with love, it’s so colorful and vibrant, and you’ll fall in love with the characters. I think it’s obvious which character is my favorite.
Perfect! I’ll change it now! You’re the best!
Wait a second

The difference between learning a modern language and an ancient language is that in first year French you learn “Where is the bathroom?” and “How do I get to the train station?” and in first year Attic Greek or Latin you learn “I have judged you worthy of death” and “The tyrant had everyone in the city killed.”
