Artist Louis Meilleur Roy says this piece "Nice View" is a good example of an early production design illustration for research on an animated film. The project which is essentially a classic adventure story for a young audience taking place on a giant wooden staircase needed the design of an old village above the clouds. Since the houses were built by the villagers themselves over a certain period of time, I relied heavily on vernacular architecture to create the shapes of the structures. I always find myself struggling with creating organic silhouettes which is why using these references, mainly the Soutiaguine house, helps me to break out of my linear aesthetic. Despite this piece being finished, I will certainly continue improving the basic outline of the village to further improve its vernacular style. As for the tools, I reused the now famous texture brush, the industrial pack and, of course, the cloud brushes.
