Harald,

Fred Cline said...

All great work! I like the softer look of your Tarzan designs that seemed to have been made more pointed and angular in the finished film.

Absolutely beautiful stuff! I'm working on a character design portfolio myself at the moment and I gotta say, your work is not only inspiring, but very humbling too. You've set me a pretty damn high bar to aim for, sir.

Keep up the great work!

Jack Ruttan said...

Thanks for the inspiration! I'm esp. fond of your caricatured "pretty girls."

rhett wickham said...

Terrific work, Harald, as always.
I'm struck by the first group image, and in particular the cat and the creature at the center top. They show influence from similar stylings Rik Maki did for Fraidy Cat and elsewhere, as does a later cat and insect creature further down the page. Do you feel Rik had an influence on you in the time you worked with him at Disney?

HaraldSiepermann said...

That cat was done for Fraidy Cat indeedl, but from home in Hamburg, never worked on a team of visdev-people on that one. I was working with Hans Bacher and Piet Kroon very early on in the project, and Hans had asked me to work very loose and Steadman-like, very illustrative.
You would be able to see a chronology of getting more loose and weird on the cat if you'd watch them one drawing after the other, also changing the color to blue was part of that process. Of course FC never came to be.
But I fell in love with the style and used it on the mosquito for a commercial in Germany ( never happend as well ). I know Rik of course and adore his work, but we never worked on what you could call a team.
Hope this answeres it.H

HaraldSiepermann said...

...this doesn't mean, that I wasn't impressed by his art and style, great guy, great artist, though I never saw his work for FC, that's what I wanted to say.

Rosey said...

Alex I.R., Esq. said...

Those Tarzan sketches are amazing. Moreso because their raw feeling actually translated to the film.

I love seeing your sketch work! It's so expressive and the characters seem so weighted, Good job!

What is the psychadelic red "drache" from? Not the Mulan one - the one that looks all strange and bent out. I want to see it wherever it is from!
