DRAGONS LAIR 2 - John Pomeroy drawings

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays 2012 everyone !
One last post for this year :-)

While working at Don Bluth Studios for the earlier part of my career I was fortunate enough to be able to work and learn from some amazing talent.

As mentioned in earlier posts, John Pomeroy was the artistic leader and I always found him open to pass on any tips and encouragement. He was extremely busy and when you were able to have a moment with him as he talked about the art of animation, it was always very enlightening and positive. There was always this excitement and passion and you could tell he loved what he was working on. It also shows in his work as  here are some beautifully drawn images from one of his scenes from Don Bluths ' Dragons Lair 2 - Time Warp '

The drawings are from the end of the game when the hero Dirk rescues his love Daphne and they come together for the kiss. Beautiful.
