Mickey goes to Mars!



This is a concept piece done for presentation. The original idea and rough layout was created by Jeff Shelly, Character Art Director for the Mickey team. I did the color sketch in markers, with Prismacolor linework and a little gouache accenting.

Our deadlines are usually tight, so marker renderings are a quick and efficient way to work. Especially when you need to bang out two of these in a day.

I love the color palette and the break from warm to cold colors, it really lifts up the illustration. In spite of the tight deadline you filled it up of a lot of nice touches here and there. Looks done with love.

Hi Kimzam, long time-no see or hear. Hope you're doing well. I've been taking baby steps with photoshop, I'm afraid I'm not very good at it yet.
