Animation Workflow: Bryce McGovern

Some fun insight to Bryce’s workflow on Peabody & Sherman. Check out the use of video reference. It’s great to see so that you can look at the bits that he uses and the areas where he pushes the performance.

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.

Enjoy!
