Elisa & Goliath from Gargoyles. EP: Seeing Isn't Believing. Szekeres

"Elisa had Jasmine's eyes, Pocahontas's physique, and Jessica Rabbit's walk. You had to see THAT to believe it."

That was my fault...and pleasure. I was animating for Disney at the time, I can't remember if I was on staff full-time at the time of just freelancing (I often moved from one state to another so I could be flexible for work opportunities).

I animated quite a bit of Elisa footage for this episode. There were some really fun close ups that I did. I remember a walk to camera that I did of Elisa that was sexy as...Plus a transformation scene which I really liked.

I think that the Oz Studio only had the one episode to do, and we got it because there was a rewrite on one of our Direct-to-Video features. It may have been a rewrite of Aladdin King of Thieves where I know I was full time and animated the Jasmine character. We may have gotten another filler episode to do later, but I think I was onto other projects at the time.

I really didn't know much about the series when we did the episode. I don't think it was screening in Australia at the time, and we had only a few episodes as reference. I basically animated Elisa as I wanted to see her, and have fun with it. It was treated like a throw away project, a fill-in, and time filler, so the lead up time that we would usually get to "know" a character was not there, so we pretty much did them as we wanted to do them. I mostly animated the female leads during my time with Disney, and so, I was the guy that animated love scenes and scenes where the female leads needed to be feminine and/or sexy. So, I just went to town on Elisa.

I helped color-styled Elisa as well as the other characters for the second season. Nice to know somebody who's worked on the same show.

Congrats on your role in the series. I've always been fascinated with those who know how to colour-style.
When I was a younger animator, I had very little experience working in colour, and considered that I might be just a b/w artist/animator. But I wanted to know more and so explored colour and the painting of it (both traditionally and digitally). I'm glad to took the colour plunge, for I truly enjoy it.

Your colour stylings for this series were wonderful, making it very distinct. Again, congrats.

I've had this in my favorites for years, and I just happened across this again today. I'm surprised I never commented on this. I think this was my favorite episode in terms of animation. I actually really loved how fluid the motion was and Elisa has never looked better lol

Hey, thanks so much.

I really enjoyed this one-off episode. Elisa, as I knew her, was fun to animate.
you work for Sevarius don't you? .. somehow you got Jasmine, Poca's and jessica's DNA .. and mixed it with Elisa's to create this.. haha.. I wanna see the ep again.. jumps to youtube..

the first one almost looks like she has a scar on her head..
