Jose Lopez's Art Blog

Jose Lopez,負責TMNT的主要角色設計,善於運用簡單的幾何圖形及直線與弧形。TMNT大部份都是他的手筆。出色的Character Designer,很喜歡他的設計。

他blog裡的artwork以character design及sketches為主。TMNT 後他參與好幾套WB的Batman動畫,現在製作 TeenTitan。

工作上一直都是與他以電郵往來,第一次見面是在與他合作了大半年後,即06年的ComicCon。當時在Artists Alley 的攤位當中,被一些好作品所吸引,欣賞了很久很久,突然感覺很熟悉。我問他是否曾替 imagi 工作...他說是....原來眼前的artist正是 Jose Lopez。很有趣的相認。

咁我死梗咯,我的智商降硬咯.... 因為回覆電郵已是我生活的一部份了....沒有email似乎不能工作。的確經常查閱及回覆電郵會令人無法集中,更不要說是創作了。
現在每日平均用上兩小時以上回覆電郵,我會集中一日"二戰"︰早上第一戰,放工前最後一戰。有時午飯後又會一戰。我通常第一時間是"殺"哂 Spam and Junk mails,早上第一戰會以重要性按次序回覆所有的電郵(多數來自美國) 。回到家就 check自己私人的 email,但相對很少。

還好,朋友很多少轉寄d低B無聊的電郵.....否則就煩。順便一題,我無 email phone又甚少回覆SMS。不過放假在家時,又會常常心陏陏想去check吓。 無論如何,email的確已成了生活中的一部份了。

Book Cover Illustration

無意中找到這幅舊作。曾替一間出版社畫了一批圖書的封面插圖,這是其中最喜歡的一幅《武士英魂 - 唐吉訶德》。很討厭書面的設計,是過份的Over design,我估當時那位設計帥剛剛玩3D,太興奮地係唔係都3D一餐。因此我把它們通通擦走了,換了英文Heading... (Acrylic on watercolor paper)

TMNT Studio Visit!

ComingSoon.net/Superhero Hype! 訪問監製Tom Gray及導演Kevin Munroe...

CS/SHH!: Can you talk about the design being CG?
Munroe: Yeah, I really wanted to go after this look of just feeling like a comic book. Both in the design and in the rendering of the animation, I think there's a lot that happens in between panels in the comic book that you fill in. In your mind of how this pose got from here to there, or what happened from there. The idea and the hope that this movie would feel like it's everything that happens in between those panels. That sounds so stupid and cerebral, but after you get it in motion, hopefully you saw some of the stuff. It's basically, as they are moving; you can freeze frame the movie. I was going to say 163 times and leak it into the internet, but you can freeze frame it and create a great comic book if you went through it, just the way it's posed and framed. As far as the lighting of it, I think I said this at Comic-Con, we lit the whole movie in black and white before we added a stitch of color to it, which was really fun just going after that Frank Miller kind of very black and white comic vibe to it just in term of the lighting. In the re-design of the Turtles, I didn't think we'd get away with Pete, but it was just one of those things where just making them feel like teenagers, just a family of teenagers sitting on the sofa arguing; and what's in the TV series now works for the TV series, and it's really great that 2D aspect. But it's really weird that they're just so big and buff, they don't feel like teenagers to me; so when we approached Pete with it, he was all for it, and he was really great. So we just tried to work and make each of them different to match their characteristics and stuff; just really going after the graphic novel. It isn't real, so there's no reason to go after and replicate reality; but I just wanted to create a believable alternate reality. I think we did in the lighting and effects and the colors.
