This season has awesome color styling, and its thanks to our amazing Color Stylist Daniaelle Simonsen!
Cleanup by Erik Elizarrez, character design by Ali Danesh & Robertryan Cory. Prop design by Sarah Craig
Some of my latest work. Daniaelle is the best. The shapeshifter was based on a vietnamese egg roll I once had, and she nailed that gross color.

People who don’t like Robertryan Cory’s drawings just don’t understand them. If you can’t look at something past the surface then you’ll see examples of his work like this and think, “Gross, a bunch of ugly faces.”
Cory’s work pushes the limits of modern cartoons and may be too advanced for some viewers and especially the overseas animators. He is an artist’s artist.This episode was basically dedicated to his abilities and showcases his magnificent talent that calls back to the great Basil Wolverton. These model sheets are beautiful, CHECK OUT HIS FLICKR.
Of all the legends that are left in the history books of entertainment, I hope Cory finds his well-deserved spot. Hopefully one day he releases a coffee table book of his favorite pieces.
RRC is a MASTER draftsman. Take notes.
