Animation Reference: Carlos F. Puertolas

Carlos has put together a great collection of his reference from some of his time at DreamWorks. Its great to see a side by side comparison of both. Pay attention to changes in the animation from the reference and how he pushed the animation even more. I like to think about why he would make those choices and it sometimes helps me understand my process a bit more to help push my animation choices.
