LOMBARDO by Jerome-K-Moore LOMBARDO by Jerome-K-Moore
WB Product Art, Lombardo, HAPPY FEET. Pencil.

I was often called in to meetings as the resident expert on which penguin was which. lol It's tough to tell unless you spent every day staring at them all day long.

"Yes! Jerome! Welcome! These are our overseas clients, and we were just discussing the three amigos, and Renaldo here..."

Hello, everyone! Umm... Yes, well, there're FIVE amigos, and that's Ramón.

"Right! Right! I knew that. But which one is --uhh-- Enrico?"

There IS no Enrico. It's Ramón, Lombardo, Renaldo, Nestor, and Raúl.

"Yes! Of course! I said that! Thank you, Jerome. Good man! Why aren't you drawing?"

Yeah, they kinda move around too quickly onscreen, and there aren't many close-ups of each individual Amigo.
But there are very subtle differences, which I hoped to spotlight here. :)

Hello, since looking at your Happy Feet work a while ago, I've noticed that some of your drawings have been included in the Happy Feet Activity Book which I downloaded off the Happy Feet flash website. I just thought I should say congratulations...

As always, keep up the excellent work!!

I love your fine attention to details and the use of the blue pencil. It makes it look even more productionish which is what I love to see!
Jerome-K-Moore Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2006  Professional Filmographer
'productionish???' lol I'd love to see that, too. But I can't find it in the dictionary anywhere.

I love the fact that you render them in either c or s curves, it gives them such a nice flow instead of looking static, that's something I need to work on personally.
May I ask why you use blue for the shadows, is it just to distinguish it from being mistaken for texture?
Jerome-K-Moore Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2006  Professional Filmographer
Thanks, Jen. But I cannot take credit for the pose in this instance, as I was required to simply translate the reference provided.

The majority of the work I've so far posted in my Gallery is collaborative art prepared for publication either in comic books, or in Marketing style guides (merchandising). As such, the art is "finished" by other artists as it leaves my hands to continue down the "assembly line" (much like the process used in traditional animation).

In the case of Product Art, during my time at WB the demands on illustration styles evolved as more diverse properties became available for licensing. Initially our art department's responsibilities rested exclusively with flatly rendered Looney Tunes. After corporate mergers and new feature production, the "library" grew to include more realistic properties that required a new way of translating them into Line Art. To preserve as much dimensionality as I could, I devised a method of incorporating blue shading in areas of texture and shadow that was NOT to be inked, but colored flatly with the minimal palette used by licensees, or clients wishing to use the character images in applications not sophisticated enough to handle the full realistic renderings or photos. This "style" of art provides a necessary option. So the blue areas in my illustrations here with HAPPY FEET, and with HARRY POTTER, WIZARD OF OZ, and others, is the indication of a COLOR shadow, or soft texture color. It's the middle ground between flat renderings, and loading the drawing down with too much black. I got the idea from animation.

hurray for animation! Well you do a marvelous job of rendering what you are given. Have you posted any of your original ideas on deviant? I mean something you've done for yourself for fun, not work.:D
Jerome-K-Moore Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2006  Professional Filmographer
Thanks, Jenn.

Yes, I've posted some illustrations that were done just for fun or as an exercise, and I have more still to put up. These are usually labeled as such, just as I always indicate what illustrations were professional assignments.

But I'm wary of posting my other original stuff, since they're story-related, and I hope to one day see them published. Top secret, don'tcha know. lol

ahhh yes, gotcha :shh:
