During preproduction on the film, the film’s production, art, lighting, and design leads teams went to Wyoming, Quebec, Canada, and Norway in order to study and gain an appreciation for the environment.
I’m loving that this lists Quebec and Canada and two separate places.

Though the giant monsters were always intended to be computer generated, all of their designs were expanded from the notion that they could be “worn as suits,” like in traditional kaiju films.
Pacific Rim (2013)
Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli. Reality is plywood and plastic, done up in mud brown and olive drab. Fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer. Reality is beans and tofu, and ashes at the end. Reality is the strip malls of Burbank, the smokestacks of Cleveland, a parking garage in Newark. Fantasy is the towers of Minas Tirith, the ancient stones of Gormenghast, the halls of Camelot. Fantasy flies on the wings of Icarus, reality on Southwest Airlines. Why do our dreams become so much smaller when they finally come true?
We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.
They can keep their heaven. When I die, I’d sooner go to Middle-Earth.

And here is the first compilation of my ‘Yzma is Best Princess’ series. I meant to do it when I completed 10, but people wanted a compilation, apparently. So here is the first 8. It’s been a wild ride so far and I’ve still got several more to go >.>
Watercolors, ink and digital outline.
