Kevin Nelson is a visual development artist for the animated film industry, in particular Disney Animation Studios. He has worked on films like The Emperor’s New Groove, Tangled, Bolt and Meet The Robinsons.
What little I know about him is not from any biographical material conspicuously absent from his blog, but simply because he has posted some images there from his work on those films.
In addition you will find work on personal projects and some life sketches.
Nelson has one of those delightful drawing styles that can be at once precise and energetic, with enough “snap” to his lines and angles to suggest motion and vibrancy.
He also has wonderful control over his color palette and uses atmospheric perspective to great effect.

Breathtaking. As a comic artist that can only dream of producing such work, I’m humbled.
