Here are some development posters I painted for the Mr. Peabody & Sherman movie like 3 years ago! I’m not totally sure what these were ever used for but they were really fun to make! You can see them in The Art of Mr. Peabody & Sherman book which is AVAILABLE NOW and has lots of really cool pictures in it!
Oh and the Peabodys in these posters were drawn by Craig Kellman!
Ooooh. Love Kevin’s work! I saw these hanging up around the offices back when I was working at DWA and knew they HAD to be illustrated by him.
The “need” for a villain to be “sympathetic” and relatable is a total contrivance and the product of modern films all trying to be more “complex” than they actually are. Most of the great villains in the history of fiction are not the slightest bit sympathetic and or even likable. They’re interesting, and compelling, and a few of them conflicted. But the idea that their plans have to make sense and we’ve gotta hear how their dog died when they were six is a totally new and very arbitrary thing. Coherence is necessary. Sympathy is not.
Qiandao Lake is a man-made lake located in Chun’an County, China, where archeologists have discovered in 2001 ruins of an underwater city. The city is at a depth of 26-40 meters and was named “Lion City”. There would have been 290,000 people living in this city during more than 1300 years.
