I realized that I never posted any of my work from Gravity Falls.

This was one of the most challenging and fun design assignments I’ve ever had.  Originally called “Bear-Bear”, the Multi-Bear was a crazy mutant bear with bears for arms and legs.  I recall Alex and Mike telling me an idea for a scene where Dipper is consoling a sad bear monster… “There there Bear-Bear”.   I did the rough sketch and in an unusual twist of fate, I think I nailed it conceptually pretty quickly.

Erik Fountain had to board a sequence with the bears and I thought for sure I would have to really simplify the final design once he was done.  Erik ended up killing it and I didn’t have to adjust the design much at all.  The reverse 3/4 position on the turn is pretty wonky now that I look at it… I must’ve rushed through it a bit since there was so much line mileage.

Oh!  I also did a really quick color pass on this design to send it off to the voice actor we were trying to get.  I thiiiiink we approached Patrick Stewart, but he passed.  Then we got Alfred Molina!  Pretty sweet if you ask me.

so yeah.

SYM-BIONIC TITAN sketches for CN promotional use (not that CN ever promoted it or anything).
I can’t recall if Genndy started these or I drew them all on my lonesome.
That was a fun job, Titan.
