Emperors New Groove

For the last class of the month in 2D Animation, the students get to choose a film to watch from a selection of about 10 animated feature films. This month they chose to see "The Emperors New Groove". I did some drawings in that film of the character Pacha and Kuzco. The Florida studios contribution to that film was just to assist the California studio on scenes that needed an army of extra hands to get the film finished.
Some students watch the film intently while others are trying to finish the final drawings in one of there assignments which is a flip book. The students in this class did some really amazing work over the course of the month.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at

Thomas. The tablet that you mention in your entries ... are we talking about a laptop and wacom tablet, so you're drawing on the tablet and the image appears on-screen or are you using some device that draws straight onto the screen like a cintiq?
Love your sketches by the way. Great blacks in this one.
Looking forward to seeing your work on UrbanSketchers

Hey rodge. The tablet I mention is a Motion Computing LE1600. It is like a laptop just without the keyboard.It is very much like a Cintique. It has less pressure sensitivity, but I do not really notice with my sketches using Sketchbook Pro. I will try to incorporate the tablet in a sketch next week.
I checked your bog BTW. Awesome stuff. I decided I would have to follow.
