These are designs created for the Mighty Eagle 2d sequence. It was refreshing for me to work on a character that was going to be animated in 2d rather than translated in CG. For this sequence I pitched  to Directors and producers an Art Deco spin on the look of the character to amplify the sense of strength and dynamism of the caricatured Mighty Eagle that we need to visualize.
Luckily everybody liked it and got into production.
Here are some poses developed from the boards and some early character exploration of the 2d Mighty Eagle (background by Pete Oswald). Pete's background paintings were very inspiring to work with.
The illustration in the previous post is the image sold the Art Deco spin concept.
