Artist Profile #7: Luc Desmarchelier

Luc Desmarchelier is an amazing visual development artist who's worked on shows like Tim Burton's Corpse Bride, Open Season, Curious George, Spirit, Road to El Dorado, The Prince of Egyptand most recently, Hotel Transylvania

He's got a great eye for staging and environment lighting, as well as a great sense of design in architecture. His style is very dark, but it's also very clear. The environment reads instantly, so you can focus on the story of the frame... which should be the ultimate goal of all art: Get the technical stuff out of the way so you can focus on the real meat of the scene.

Most of the posted pieces are from Corpse Bride and Hotel Transylvania, but please check out his blog at the bottom, because there are tons of beautiful pieces from other projects.
