Elisa 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.
