Over the Hedge 12
















Copyright DreamWorks Animation

Here's an example of the orthographic drawing (or blueprint)
which is done after the general design is approved. Like I have said
before, it's very hard to maintain some of the asymmetrical features
that inevitably creeps into a design, mainly because models need to
be symmetrical, for some reason. However, once built and rigged, it
is possible to regain that asymmetrical appeal by means of off-setting
features when building expression. It took some getting used to...
My good man Brian Jeffcoat modeled Vincent as you saw him in the final
film in record time based on these drawings.

That's the coolest turnaround I've ever seen. That weasel is practically moving right before my eyes. Love it.
