WDAS trainee work

Here's some work that finally got cleared to show. This is work I did as a Trainee at Walt Disney Animation Studios. This was my take on Hansel and Gretel. I had some great mentors and some really great fellow trainees to work around. All done with either pen/pencil or photoshop (and since I've been asked, the paintings on the bottom are not 3D models). Thanks for stopping by.
