More Phantom Title Cards



Hello everyone! On top of being a board artist and character designer on Danny Phantom, I also got the opportunity to design all the title cards for the show. One of my favorite parts of the job was designing the logo for each episode. I can't take credit for the brilliant coloring, however. I would only submit the line drawing and that would be colored by Honore Gauthier, George Taylor, Bob Boyle, and George Goodchild. (I think these were all colored by George Taylor.) Another great color artist on the show was Kaz Aizawa who now has a blog. Click on his name to see his stuff.

Thanks everyone!

Teddy- "Carte Blanche?" I remember that carrot being dangled on a very long "Clean-up" stick.

Chris- The first image was drawn on my Cintiq screen in Sketchbook Pro. (Just using the normal pencil tool). This would then be sent to the clean up crew which would be vectorized in Illustrator. The colored images are examples of the illustrator clean up, (by Ray Leong).

Oh ok, I'm seeing it now. They really look great! How can one go about getting a clean up crew? =)

Thanks Ben,
Chris

I really like these. I esspecially like "Masters of All Time" It reminds me slightly of old 1950's horror movies. I think it's because of the typography. I love all of them though.

I didn't know you did them, I have to say they're brilliant!
