Scott Wills is a visual development and production artist specializing in animation backgrounds.
His blog, CandyCaneLand, includes examples of his work from both television and feature animation productions, including Samurai Jack, Ren & Stimpy, Star Wars: Clone Wars, Flushed Away, Sinbad, Monsters vs. Aliens and more.
Many of his backgrounds are painted in acrylic. Some of the originals, as the images above at bottom show, are quite small in scale. He also works digitally in Photoshop, and sometimes combines the two mediums.
