Here you have the final version (above) which was supposed to have a realistic rendering while at the same time stylized although keeping some proportions to match up the animal's. In the earlier versions (see below) I wanted to use a more caricaturesque approach of the Scarlet Macaw.

My work on the upcoming movie Little Heroes

Here are some images of the work I did for the upcoming 3D animated movie (Pequeños Héroes) Little Heroes by Juan Pablo Buscarini. I worked at the art department, painting the characters, designing some of their additional accesories which later were used as reference by the 3D sculptors and also did some color key work.

I wanted to give it a realistic mood, while at the same time combining some funny look for character designs and the trees, among other things. As usual, click on the image to enlarge.

Below: closer view to some characters.
