Dan Chaika

Prior to working as an animator in visual effects on 15 films for Walt Disney Studios and Blue Sky Studios, my artwork consisted of the Life Drawings of people in order to further my draftsmanship of the human anatomy, and to basically grow in my drawing ability. My drawings would also include quick sketches with pad and paper in hand, of any element of interest that derived from nature or my surroundings, such as a water drop from a leaf, or smoke from an extinguished candle. Early on during my career at Disney, my drawings would be pencil on paper, and the important elements such as composition and design had to be incorporated into each visual effect drawing, which later played an important role when my so-called drawings were being created on the computer while still using the basic fundamentals of drawing.
