Back in 2010 I did some work for the incredible Charles Pickens of Disney Publishing. These were for the chapter books based on the main character, Tinkerbell. Charles does some amazing, amazing color work and it was hard to follow his lead; he has so much experience. Great guy; one of my favorite art friends. I was mostly responsible for painting the figures (he would send me the pencils) and much of the background elements were already done. I did a few; like the big sunflower on the left of Rosetta, the giant mouse that she rode as well as her and the character riding another mouse in the distance. These elements were placed into a large painted background later. Mostly I painted what are called partials; and Charles would paint everything else; so the art would be done faster and be more consistent. He would roughly tell me whereabouts he wanted the light and he would trust my judgement to light the figures~which I love to do. These were always crazy, up to the minute deadlines; always a rush!
