Hey guys, the Artist of the Week is contemporary character designer Nico Marlet.
Nico Marlet is a French born concept artist working in the American animation industry. He graduated from CFT Gobelins in France, and moved to California, in the United States, to work at Dreamworks Animation Studio in 1990. He worked for several years as an animator, before switching to the character design team in 1995 for the production of “Balto.” Since then Marlet has worked mostly on character design for Dreamworks’s films.
His concept art for “Kung Fu Panda” and “How to Train Your Dragon” is his most popular around the world. They feature his impeccable shape design, loose, gestural quality, and trademark sepia colored pencil and markers. I think Marlet’s recent popularity is significantly due to how lively his drawings are. His practice as an animator is highly evident in his concept designs, which are full of movement and expression.
