Carlos Grangel - Character Design

Again whilst working for Animate & Create in the Easter holidays, we were able to have an exclusive insight into some of their pre-production stages, and finalised productions whilst giving a talk about the inner workings of studio life. One of productions that featured in the presentation, which is still in pre-production stages, included hand outs of some character designs for the short, by an artist known as Carlos Grengel.

Instantly falling in love with his work, the Spanish-born artist can be recognised for films such as Tim Burton's Corpse Bride, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar, and many other films that appear to have lovable characters. Here's a few examples of his work.

I really love how exaggerated some of the shapes can be on certain characters in his work, that seem to just resonate their personality traits effectively and stylistically.

Check out his website for more information on shorts he has featured in, as well feature films :)
