Artist Nate Wragg shared insight into some of the work that he did for Toy Story 3 in a recent blog post. His thoughts accompany stunning illustrations (dozens!) of the series’ new additions.
It’s interesting to see how closely the final character models came to Wragg’s original designs. You’ll find early takes on Mr. Pricklepants, Stretch, Dolly, Buttercup, Chuckles and even some characters that didn’t make it into the film. If you don’t already own the "Art of…", you’re just getting a taste here.
To learn more about Nate, check out the interview that we conducted with him back in 2008. I’m not sure if he’s with Pixar at the moment, but I know you’ll also enjoy browsing through his blog to see more of his excellent artwork.
