POWER RANGERS: JUNGLE FURY...the rough sketches!
Here's some of the rough sketches for the huge new job I'm working on for Disney's POWER RANGERS: JUNGLE FURY line. These are all for future style guide art, which will be used on all kinds of products. There was nothing in terms of real reference to work with since it's still kind of new, but Disney has been easy to work with on this since they aren't being over-controlling on the tweaking of the art. There is a lot of leeway they are allowing. There are about 83 pieces in all that I'm doing. I finished all the rough sketches on Friday morning and they have left for official approvals right now. Took about 2 weeks to do them all. I know there are Power Rangers fans out there who will know the stuff better than I do so my labelling of the sketches I know is way off in most cases. As when I worked on Handy Manny for Disney, it was the same case of just drawing the job and not knowing the relationships or dynamics of the characters or story elements...or even their names for that matter! Just draw it and get it done on deadline. Still, it's been a fun gig even though I'm not looking forward to doing the final inked art since it will take longer to do it. This is the more creative part of it. Should all be wrapped up by the end of March.
