Gals and Rhinos

Well, it appears as though the month is drawing to a close already...where does the time go? I haven't posted much lately, but I don't want you to think that that is because I'm being lazy or anything. I've just been busy working on a crazy deadline for work, which is good because work=food=my wife and baby are happy=I can keep drawing for fun.
At any rate, our group at BYU has begun work on our animated short! It's about a little girl and a rhino, so I bet you can guess what I've been drawing non-stop for the last little while. I don't really have anything clever to say right now, so I'll just get to it:
All of what you see here is marker and photoshop (except for the two watercolors and the one collage, which is entirely photoshop). Hope you like seeing the exploration--leave a comment and let me know what you think!

great work, so many different rhinos and one even has a monocle, BRILLIANT!

Jenna said...

the second page of rhinos is a little leo lionni-esque...only cooler! (you know, Swimmy,Inch by Inch etc.)

These are jaw-dropping. That monocled rhino has class! All those little girls are so cute (especially the one with the jet pack!). I love the style!

Laura said...

I've already told you this multiple times, but I have no problem saying it again: These are splendid! You're a fantastic designer, Anthony. bravo.

Great work!!!!!!

Chelsea Stebar said...

I think my favorite is the red-headed girl with the camera. But they're all so awesome!

Jed said...

so fun. It helps me envision the final rhino when you add those skin textures to your designs. Very convincing!

And your kids rock. So much character going on in there! I think your two tall girls are totally publishing - worthy. Or movie-worthy. wherever they end up, they're really nice, Anthony. Will we ever see them again?

the girl with the blue hair looks like Coraline from the new movie "Coraline" that's coming out.

Lovely work all round here. I like the expression on the rhino with the cowgirl, made me chuckle. Thanks for leaving a comment. All the best.

All the designs are fun and amazing but those girl designs are jumping off the page they're so full of life. I almost forgot they were drawings!

hey! your art work is incredible, could I use one of your images for a school project?

Anthony Holden said...

What kind of project? As long as it's not for profit, it should probably be fine.
