My wife has been bugging me to post some drawings from my 5 year journey on "BRAVE". I'll post more Brave work later, these were just the ones that were convenient to locate.
This a concept drawing done early on in "BRAVE". I was
experimenting with different brushes and this happened,
I could never repeat this effect to bad because I like the look.
Pete Doctor and Bob Peterson took a pass at "Brave" as well.
This is one of the beat-boards for there take on the story. Mom
is still angry for Merida shooting her in the butt.
The idea that Merida could ride on the back of mom was pitched
early on the project. The idea was shot down, but it reemerged at
some point. I did a few of these drawings and have a drawing like
this in the Art of Brave Book.
I did lots and lots of bear drawings while working on "BRAVE"
not always for an assignment though. I can't remeber what I did
this one for.
This was an idea with a character name Silas the stable boy,
he was the son of Beason the royal tailor. Both were characters
that existed in the first couple of drafts of "BRAVE".
In earlier drafts mom turned into a bear in a tanning shed that
was outside of the castle, it was much scarier than the way they
they had her turn into a bear in the film.
This was an illustration (a two page spread) done for a friend's
