Landscape Painting

Here's my one of my last projects from color class. I'm pretty happy with it considering it's my first real landscape painting. I got an A- on it by the way, my teacher liked it but said it wasn't finished.

Pixar Presentation!

Around this time of the year Ringling has recruiters come in and do presentations, review portfolios and possibly call back a few people for interviews. Today was Pixar's presentation with Ringling alums Jaime Landes and Gaston Ugarte. Jaime was an animation intern before getting hired. Check out this little blurb about her intern experience on Pixar's site here. Gaston is a modeling technical director who just finished modeling the Pizza Planet Truck for Pixar's 2009 movie yes the tradition will continue, lol. Unfortunately there were no sneak peaks of WALL•E but they did show a bunch of pre-production animation tests and rig tests from Ratatouille which were awesome. Everybody also got a kick out of them showing some hidden references to their other movies in Ratatouille. A few I knew but was totally shocked to see they put "Nemo Brand Caviar" in Ratatouille, see if you can find it! Also the shadow of a barking dog that scares Remy away is a character from Up. Ok, thats all for now, Blue Sky comes on Monday.
