Anatomy of a Snow Globe

One part of the snow globe design process you may not give much thought to is the design of the base. I always start out with an overall sketch of the piece as a whole, characters included. But, once that part is done (the easy part), you then need to figure out how it’s actually going to work. As characters come fairly easily to me , the technical aspects of something like a structure or in this case a base of a snow globe take a little more thought. Below is a peek inside my thought process on how the base of this Mickey Mouse Club snow globe might work out. With a few tweaks, A lot of additional drawings, overlays and emails, this came out pretty darn well.

Birthday Week! - 
This week I celebrate my birthday, and boy is it a busy one! Lots to do and lots to prepare before friends and family arrive. With birthdays on my brain, I was reminded of a little drawing I did a few years ago. I try send it out on facebook whenever a friend is celebrating. Someday I will do a new one, but this just always seems to do the trick. Maybe you’ll share it with someone close to you. :)

Disney - Peter Pan - Tiger Lily
Steve Thompson
Continuing with the theme of some less celebrated, but no less loved, Disney leading ladies and Disney girls. This time up it’s Tiger Lily from Peter Pan. 
This whole series has been a fun exercise in movement, shape, design and economy of line work. Coming up in the next few weeks I’ll be able to share a little more of what I’ve been up to at work. Until then, I hope you’ve been enjoying this little look back into the vault. ;) I’m not sure who’s next. We’ll see………

Eilonwy and Gurgi - Black Cauldron (c) Disney
Steve Thompson
And now for something a little more obscure than usual. Eilonwy and Gurgi from Disney’s Black Cauldron. 
After my drawings of Kida, Jane, Esmerelda, Meg and Giselle, I thought I would keep up the theme and go a little deeper into the Disney vault for this one. 
If you missed my previous posts, I’ve pasted links to the other leading ladies above. :)
Now also on Facebook.
