Here is how I did it. After I scanned my drawing I start working from the outside silhouette. Then is all negative shapes and adjusting values. Toward the end I decided to change the composition :)

Big Cat Anatomy Sculpture

Hi there! I've been working on a Big Cat Anatomy Sculpture for a few months now.  My intention was to create a model for artists and students interested in learning animal anatomy. This is a tool that can help with understanding the complexity of big cats anatomy. Professionally I am an animator and anatomy consultant at Dreamworks Animation. Given my background and experience I felt compelled to sculpt the lioness. The prototype is done and I've started a Kickstarter campaign that will allow me to produce my sculpture. If you are interested, go to:


Please help get the word out about this Big Cat. Thanks for your support :)

Gabriele Pennacchioli - Croods Showreel

Here is my Croods showreel.
The first scene is the longest scene I've ever done in animation: 34 seconds!
It follows the Tar pit sequence. In that sequence I animated Grug and Jakob Jensen animated Guy.
Everything else is all animated by me.
