Mr. Blu Bird!
I have always wanted to live on Main Street USA. I love Disney parks. The excitement, the attention to detail, the smell of the water in Pirates of the Caribbean, (you guys know what I'm talking about) I love it all. I also enjoy using Twitter and other forms of social media to follow some of my favorite Disney folk and friends as we discuss all things Disney.
One of my good friends, Rustin Jessen (proper Disney folk) and I have teamed up to create a new social media site based on Disney parks called Mr. Blu Bird! While we can't go into all of the details just yet, we've started sharing some of the character work and background illustrations that will be woven into the website experience.
While we continue work on the site, I thought I would take a moment and share some of the development sketches behind the design of Mr. Blu Bird.
After working on several, more complex designs, the final build ended up being much simpler, and easier to manipulate for future poses.
An earlier concept had our bird based on a certain mouse.
Here's the final, approved pose. Lots of appeal (at least we think so) and easy to manipulate!
Stay tuned for loads more, and oh, don't forget to download a desktop wallpaper while you wait!
