Character designs by Fabien Mense
Oh my god.
We just finally saw this movie today. The story was overall disappointing, the beginning weak, the ending terrible and the brief 2-d credit animation cooler than most of the CG, but I loved a lot of what the artists tried to do with what they were given, and there were some pretty great jokes and designs thoughout.
These, though…who the hell looked at these and said no?
Agreed. I really liked a number of the designs and I can go on with praise for the strong posing in the movie, but the story was as big a flop for me as Rango. THESE DESIGNS, THOUGH. I NEED TO CHERISH THESE FOREVER.
WHY DID THEY WRITE OUT SWAMP THING AND GO WITH THOSE GOD AWFUL UGLY WEREWOLVES WHEN THEY COULD HAVE HAD SHIT LIKE THIS….
I’ve been watching a butcher bird build her spring nest for months - on the highest branches of a jacaranda tree, starting at dawn and working away until dark. She’d drop twigs onto the roof to break them up, then carefully fuss and pick them over. Every twig had to be just so. Hours and hours like this, every day. Fighting off honeyeaters and kookaburras, rebuffing her mate when he’d return with unsuitable materials. In stormy winds today, the nest was blown out of the tree and down onto the grass. She sat on the branch where the nest had been, looking lost. Completely heartbreaking to watch, and the tree too high for me to return it. And then she was off, to start all over again somewhere else.
Here is three months work, from a tiny creature of the world. A home the size of a dinner plate. Perfectly round, perfectly woven, lined with soft coconut shell fibre. An intricacy that is almost unimaginable. If we average that this tiny, perfect creature worked 6 hours a day for 3 months, then this perfect home was 540 hours in the making. And that is a kind of magic.
