Preview of Disney-themed artwork by Joel Payne releasing tomorrow 8/22/14!

www.acmearchivesdirect.com

Joel Payne uses a combination of traditional oil painting and digital art techniques to create his artwork. He is the Owner/CEO Digital Backlot which has contributed to over 40 projects for multiple video game platforms, film, print, toys, VR rides, Network 3D cartoons, and more.

 

Here is an excerpt from his recent interview in Computer Graphics World Issue 3 May/Jun ‘14

 

"As a Disney artist, what do you do?”

 

“My goal is to focus on the Disney classics and add my ‘believable’ angle to it. So, if Snow White’s world were a real place, I imagine returning to that land with an HDRI camera to capture a little bit more detail, color, and lighting, while keeping the original flavor that we all fell in love with.”

 

This Art Release will include six pieces:

"A Spark of Inspiration"
“Belle’s Daydream”
“Conscience”
“Kingdom of Isolation”
“On the Open Road”
“Tinkerbell’s Sanctuary”
