Hello, I'm Alison Donato and I artify things
Email: adonato8@gmail.com

Post for today: Carmen! Again, character designed by Sandra Equihua, I just do orthos / 3/4 view paint based off of her original art.

Her skirt was originally made of tiered wood like this, but was changed, I assume for animation purposes. Again, fun to paint this one because she is so colorful and varied in materials/detailing.

More Book of Life fun, a bunch of stuff I did for the Grandma character. She was originally designed by Sandra Equihua. On each character, the art team (and modeling) had the task of figuring out how to transfer their designs to a 3d object that still retained it’s original graphic appeal. This was also the first character I helped out on in the production, back when we were still doing texture swatch breakouts for each material on the character.

She was extra fun to paint because she is so old and broken down, we decided to add a lot of detail to show her old age through her textures, so she’s very wobbly, uneven and knotted.

Okay, more BOL posts later, but enough for today :)

Here’s a bunch of Ballroom Stuff I painted for The Book of Life. 

The design/layout of the room was done by Fred Gardner (he did the layout drawing of the full ballroom and some of the main props like the throne chair and table)

Miguel Gonzalez did a bunch of the detail designs (the stained glass window, the stone animal/flower arches and the bottles :P)

It’s all painted flat/with no lighting so it could be passed off to texture easily. Besides that: SO MANY COLORS O_O, I swear every notes pass on this room was “add more color” XD. The overall look/design of this ballroom was influenced by Gaudí's architecture. The color scheme we ended up going with is based off of La Muerte's character colors.

Inktober #2 is Gogo Tomago….inked by hand but I did the tone/color in the comp. Nailing those big swooping shapes is mega tricky by hand, kudos to ink masters :O

Book of Life kids books just came out! :))) I got to help out and paint one of the books (Bet on It) along with some of my other coworkers who drew the background layouts. It was a super team effort between like 5 of us to get the books done in a super short time. 
The actual book illustrations are a bit spoilerish though, so here’s an unofficial style test I drew/painted did before we started the books, it was done in my own time to my show my take on the characters in a simpler kid’s-book style. It was based on a scene shown in the trailer. 
I’ll post the rest later (maybe after the movie is out).
