    Default ZBrush Interview: ILM on Rango

    Banner.jpg



    From the moment you saw that first teaser with the wind-up toy fish flying across the highway, you were probably intrigued by Rango – the smash animated film starring Johnny Depp as its titular hero. Released on March 4, 2011, Rango has been a terrific success. In fact, it’s the highest-grossing film of 2011 worldwide so far!

    A large part of the film’s success is the artistry behind it. George Lucas’ famed Industrial Light & Magic took the helm for the movie’s animation, with a result that Roger Ebert described as “respects the tradition of painstakingly drawn animated classics, and does interesting things with space and perspective with its wild action sequences.” There is no doubt that Rango has a visual style all its own and Pixologic was thrilled to be able to speak with the art team behind the movie to learn how it came about.

    We hope you enjoy this special look into the artistry of Rango!







    Here's a sampler of the many images that you'll find. You can view them in high resolution from the interview pages.

    I just love the characters, not only the design but their personality too. The entire look of the movie is absolutely stunning and a nice homage to the "spaghetti western". The amount of detail is insane but very well balanced. Great interview, thanks for that!

    Can, there's no complete list of credits for anyone. I'm happy I got the credit for the Spirit of The West and The Mayor and really don't care the other 5 characters I modeled were not mentioned. Your name is there dude, be proud. Now go ahead and post on your website the name of all assets you built
