I decided to kill two birds with one stone. I’m taking an online art class taught by Pixar character artist Daniel Arriaga, and my assignment was doing ten expressions for the character. But I got bored with the other character I had, so I decided to put some use into making a version of Dr. Blackgaard. The class is on character design so I did not intend at all to make him like Gary Locke’s versions.
I think my favorite version is the ‘annoyed’ expression there on the right, it’s just so true to his character. “Bunglers. I’m surrounded by bunglers!”
The squash, stretch, and smile expressions were required, but they are pretty out-of-character.
