You guys, it’s the first trailer for the Powerpuff Girls thing! We put so much love into this thing. I really hope you all like it! I art directed it and my best friend Dave Smith directed it and my other best friend Stephane Coedel directed the animation and it has art from all of these amazing people!!! These people:
I think this was one of my favorite episodes that I worked on! I just thought the idea of Steven and Connie in a bubble was really cute and they visit so many cool places in this episode. The underwater stuff was heavily inspired by Super Mario World!
Here is some of the work that went into designing the Steven Universe logo! We started with the gold lettering idea from the pilot and original promo poster which you can see here. I did a couple roughs which we then based the final logo on. The final logo was the result of a team effort by myself, Danny and Angie who did line cleanups, Rebecca and Ian who provided lots of creative input, and Tiffany who did a final color pass on the cleaned up artwork!
I did just a handful of quick keys while I was working on Steven for various character and prop things. It was usually just if Danny or somebody said they needed help with a specific design or if I had an idea for something that I wanted to illustrate. From top to bottom: early exploration for the look and feel of the Red Eye from Laser Light, the final Red Eye was brilliantly designed by Angie Wang —- first design of Greg’s van before we added his trademark Mr. Universe mural, the final Van was designed by Danny Hynes —- color and shape explorations for Garnet and Pearl, these were really more for fun than anything since the designs were already getting pretty solid at that point —- and a Centipeedle design to show an idea I had about the undersides being made of gems, the final Centipeedle was designed by Colin Howard.
