Tigre Promotions...

With the premiere of the show coming up very soon, we've been hard at work doing some promotion artwork that can finally be shared. I can only take painting credit on these, the rest is the hardwork of our mucho talented character and background department.

First up is this month's issue of Nick magazine:



Here's a closer look for those interested:


Drawn by Gabe Swarr, Fred Osmond, and Katie Rice. Backgrounds by Roman Laney and Denise Chavez.

Next up, Animation magazine.


Drawn by Chris Battle and Gabe Swarr, background by Roman Laney and Katrien Verbiest. Check out Mr.Battle's blog for his super awesome sketch!

And finally a poster promo, I hear will be in Time Square sometime soon (and I think on Sunset Blvd.)



Drawn by Jorge Gutierrez (the show's creator) and Gabe Swarr. Background by Roman Laney.

Hope you guys like, and that you tune into Nick on March 3rd to watch the show!!

Gene Fowler said...

ok, did anyone notice that El Tigre had the Teletoon "T" on his head and buckle?

Is that your secret marketing weapon?! IS THAT HOW YOU GET A SHOW ON TV?! IS THAT YOUR EVIL PLAN!?

IS THAT YOUR CAR? WELL SOMEONES BREAKING INTO IT!

Nice painterly goodness, Steve.

SteveLambe said...

Ha! Thanks for dropping by, Snkfan. Guess you can't please everyone.

Scott Tolleson said...

Great stuff Steve! Your sense of color and texture are amazing. My new favorite cartoon!

Mike Mac said...

snkfan is a douche....the show is fantastic you guys did a awsome job!

Gary Ham said...

Tivo only recorded 15 minutes, but what I saw was fantastico.

Shawn Escott said...

Beautiful designs! You guys make a great team! I like the rest of the work on your blog too. Fantastic designs!

SNKFan said...

I know. If El Tigre is successful, They would make a video game of the the TV show. It should be exactly like that old game, called Ninja Gaiden, and guess who should publish and develop the El Tigre game?

I'll give you one word: TECMO. TECMO should develop and publish the game, because I am sick and tired of THQ doing the Nickelodeon games and hiring American developers to do the game. Japanese game companies such as TECMO are always going to be better made than American-made games. JAPAN DEVELOPERS FOREVER!

SteveLambe said...

Ummm....thanks again for dropping by, Snkfan. I just work on the cartoon show. I'm not involved with Nick's videogame divison.

With the show just starting, the chance of it being a video game is pretty far off. Who knows though! Hopefully the viewers will have the opposite reaction you had, and the game will actually happen.

PEPE said...

Tanith said...

Fantasmic artwork! I love love love your color schemes! Especially the ones for the Day of the Dead illustrations. I was looking at your old posts and I noticed your rant on the Col-Erase pencils... I've been so mad about that for a year, and I always think "maybe this time they'll be better" and every time it's the same damn thing, EXCEPT, the black Col-Erase pencils seem to work like the old Sanfords. Now, I know it's not color (*sniff* the Violet was my baby) but it works really nicely.

Yo Steve-O,
Great Paintings Man! and congrats on the shows premiere. Unfortunately, I don't have cable so, I'm gonna have to go download it off of somewhere or another. But rest assured I will watch and love every second of it.

P.S. Just give snkfan a gander at the ol' Lambey biceps:) He won't be back!(that last part should be read in an Arnold accent...FYI)
