Croods lighting test with Eep

Croods dinner

Throughout the story process, the Croods are to have dinner under the stars with a big wall behind them to catch the shadows of the fireside story. This location changed from coral field, to inside a whale skeleton, to a giant tree.

Croods exhibition art

This is the coral plain vista art that was painted really fast. Everyone liked the idea of salt flats with great big coral monoliths. That's me being all arty at the pacific design center where we had an 'art of croods' exhibition. Think I need a beret?

Croods coral fields

I spent a while on Croods developing this drained ocean. Its like monument valley but made of coral. Here is some stormy art that ultimately showed up much later in the movie.

A couple of Croods paintings

the first is vis-dev of the gorge-land where Grug gets attached on stilts by the Macawnivore. The second is matte-painting ref of what the explosion reverse view might look like.
