Background paintings done for animated pilot of The Wingfeather Saga. The Grand Caravanserai is an abandoned palace that was claimed by time and the desert. Now half-buried in the sand, the structure has been repurposed by the people of the barrens––drifters, bandits, outlaws, underground merchants––to be a magnificent caravanserai.

Below you’ll find just some of the ideas and visual development of this microcosm.
In the gif below you’ll see the process for one of the scenes from a trailer for our cartoon, High Seas. Veronica Liu both boarded the scene and animated the character while I layout the background and colored the entire shot. Below were color keys done over Veronica Liu’s storyboards.
