Scooby Doo: Frankencreepy BG Development and Final Production Art

 Paintings by Jeff Palm! The best paintings of the show although I also loved the Castle exteriors as much, see below.

These two by Robert Harand! Nice architectural detail!

My rough sketch of the castle entrance. This was done early on for the board artists to work from.

Early painting sample. Was trying to figure out the warm/cool thing that Paul wanted. 

 Another Robert Harand final from my rough.

 Another rough of the Transylvania Train Depot. This was the first bg rough I did. At that time I was thinking it would have some fall like foliage around it but it was moved to more of a winter alpine location.

 The final Lab painting. I still like to paint when I can although Jeff Palm and Bill Wray did most of the heavy lifting.
 Bill Wray painting!!!
 Another Bill Wray!!!
 A Shawn McKelvey spooky forest painting!!

Animation is a team effort. When we work hard and do something cool of course we want to get recognized for it. I use this blog as a sort of portfolio but I want to highlight the process and the group effort that the team has put forth on this fun project. I did the rough sketches early on mostly for the board artists to work from but also to set a style direction to make sure the shots stay dynamic. If the roughs are done it helps the board guys and luckily they just dropped these shots right into the final. As I mentioned above Jeff Palm, Robert Harand, Shawn McKelvey and Bill Wray were an amazing team!!! Great work you guys!!!
