Pixar: 20 Years of Animation by EternallyOptimistic Pixar: 20 Years of Animation by EternallyOptimistic
Twenty years ago, John Lasseter teamed up with Ed Catmull and Steve Jobs to found an animation studio, which they named "Pixar." The studio made a series of short films before producing the first completely computer animated film in history. Since then, they've had tremedous success, producing one wonderful movie after the other.

:D Ah, it's good to be obsessed! In honor of Pixar's 20th Anniversary, I've put together a little tribute to them. At first I thought I was crazy for trying to fit so many characters in here, but it actually ended up looking just how I wanted it to. Originally, I had more characters from the short films, but in the end, the birds were all I was able to fit in.

This is quite possibly the best coloring job I've ever done. I'm especially happy with Dory, Sulley, Mater and Sally. Overall, it was a lot of fun to work on.

Happy 20th, Pixar! :boogie: :party: :clap: :w00t: Here's to 20 more!

All characters seen here belong to the amazing people at Pixar.

All them and you forget Luxo.Jr, their first 'character'?

Great work otherwise.

I actually do not know why the studio is named such; my guess is that it's a play on the word ';pixel.'
But I don't know for sure. ^^;

This is sooo cute! I love your style. And you did a great job with the cars, I can't even draw a scooter. x__X
One thing, though, I think you should have put in the trademark lamp Luxo Jr. somewhere. Ah well. This is grand altogether! ^_^ :thumbsup:

Yeah, someone else suggested that too... Looking back, I don't know why I didn't do it... I think I tried to stick him in there, but couldn't come up with a spot that really felt natural. :shrug: Kinda wish I had, though.

The only movie I thought they messed up on was Cars. Everything else: Comedy Gold. Especially Incredibles, Ratatoille and both Toy Stories.

PIXAR FTW

WHEE! I likey so much! Cars is currently my favorite Pixar film because I think the characters are so cute (Lightning M. in particular)! My older sis and I also used to like a Bug's Life very much too! Are the characters are drawn and colored well. This deserves 100 favings for me!

I'll drink to that!
:ahoy:

And lets not forget that it was Pixar that developed Renderman - the program that every other cgi animation house uses to produce their work.
Including Dreamworks!

Oh yes, Renderman is everywhere. :D I still can't believe how many movies it's been used on!
