I had the great experience of seeing Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs a few weeks ago, and was blown away! This movie gives me hope for the future of CGI animated features after all. This is a real cartoon, from beginning to finish, and it's not afraid to show it. Funny walk cycles, eyes popping out, double takes, and all kinds of cartoony fun that most every other CG movie today would not dare to go to.
If you haven't seen it yet, do it (especially in 3D or IMAX)! Hopefully it inspires other studios to stop being scared of taking advantage of this art form, and to take more chances at being cartoony and entertaining.
So much like my Coraline post from earlier this year, this post isn't much else than a simple entry to share and keep track of all the cool concept artwork for Cloudy that I've been collecting over the intenet. These pieces are credited to artists Pete Oswald, Armand Serrano, Kris Pearn and David Gibson. And as always, if you really like this movie and the art you see here, buy the art-of book!
