Work designs


For the past couple years I've been the character designer for Nickelodeon's Kung Fu Panda TV series which recently aired. Here are my attempts at replicating the style of Nicolas Marlet, the designer of the original movie characters.

Kendra Melton said...

These are all really great. Love the handling on the goldfish, full of pattern but its controlled so the design feels light and airy and not weighted down. And of course those elephants are just stellar; color, cloth, pattern, just so good!

Wow! Ive not seen anything for the series yet but I think youve nailed the market style. I like your feminine owl. Birds are always deadly to draw but even more so in such a strong style! Great job!
