BH6 Tribute by tombancroft
BH6 Tribute
I did this Big Hero 6 fan art (even before I had seen the movie) and the colorist pro, Sean Ellery colored it for me for fun.  I love what he did!  He can be found here: <da:thumb id="496145908"> and the original inks are in my gallery here: <da:thumb id="493587371">

China Girl by tombancroft
China Girl
This is a commission piece I did for my buddy Steven Ng.  He wanted a Chinese girl in this specific kind of dress, I added the "punker" aspects for fun to give her a little spunk!  

Copic markers and some colored pencils for color and Kuretake Ink pens for the black ink lines.  
Here's a GREAT play-by-play review/ summary of our PROWEEKEND lecture from about a month ago with speakers; Claire KeaneRuben A. Aquino and me (Tom Bancroft) If you didn't get to go, this is ALMOST as good. Thanks "Rotoscopers" blog for posting this!…

Tom Bancroft
Artist | Professional | Film & Animation
United States
I'm a former Disney supervising animator (Mushu from Mulan and a few others) as well as director at Big Idea Productions (Veggietales) for a couple years. For 7 years I co-owned an illustration/animation development studio, Funnypages Productions just outside of Nashville, TN.

I am now working on my own freelancing and doing other contract work for TV, film, comics children's books, video games and other kids stuff!

I wrote and drew 4 issues of my creator- owned series, "Opposite Forces". Also, I wrote and illustrated the character design instructional book "CREATING CHARACTERS WITH PERSONALITY" through Watson-Guptill publishing. My next book "CHARACTER MENTOR" comes out in 2012 from Focal Press publishers.

Hi I really love your works, do you know if there are other disney animators on deviantart?
tombancroft Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2014  Professional Filmographer
That's a good question, there aren't many.  I can't think of any many off the top of my head.  Look up Rob Corley, Dan Gracey and Phil Alora, those three come to mind.

Hey! I saw that you have a great talent with drawings! Can we do an art trade? It would be a pleasure make an art for someone that has good hands with art:)

Thank you.  I don't do art trades though.  Thanks for the offer though.
