Escape from Duckburg?

Get out! This year marks the 10th anniversary of an animated show that never was, centered around and on Duckburg's dark knight 'The Duck Avenger', Donald Duck's famous alter-ago. Back then, my designs were Disney's final choice to get the test phase started. After all, the show was not greenlit.

This piece here was a kind of by-product or extra to my visual development efforts, mostly carried out for internal sport in order to have some sort of "film poster" for my studio wall. At that time I was playing around with ideas for the main character's gadgets and super suits (like the dragon tuxedo here) and some titles design options. Big thanks to head of development Robert Chandler who encouraged me to do "my thing" with the characters.
