With the fourth Shrek movie soon to be released I thought I'd dig out some of my old concept drawings from around 1996/97 when I was working on the first Shrek movie in LA, before it moved up north to PDI. Yes, it really was that long ago. The Art Department was just learning how to use Photoshop 2, there wasn't a digital camera in sight and I don't recall seeing too many cell phones, if any.
These are landscape ideas for Shrek's world. We didn't have a Shrek or Donkey model at this stage and there was a fad for making drawings brown. These were done in black and white with pencil and then colorized on the photocopier. I'll publish more when and if I can find stuff.
