Viking Family


Here's some incidental characters from a short I was doing some work for at Disney TV. The project got cancelled last summer, but I thought I'd dig these out and post 'em anyway. I did a ton of designs for this that I'll post some other time. As always click on the image if you want to see it bigger.

That's too bad it was cancelled, it looked like it could have been terribly fun to design.

Looking forward to seeing more of them. Have a great Christmas Mr. Balistreri.

Oh man, shame the show got canned - sweet designs. Kind of a retro style with a bit of Asterix in there. Gorgeous work as usual.

Cancelled? Ohhh... i would've loved to see this in action they truly look like they had potential.

BTW, I heard about the Annie Awards and that your DP designs/storyboards got nominated! Kudos to you Mr. Balistreri! You SO deserve it! Wish you luck1

Happy belated Christmas and New Year x3
