desktops. again!

Looks like it's time for another installment of Animation Art Big Enough To Be Used As Desktop Decoration (At Least For My Laptop)! Round three... start!

Just in time for the Halloween season, it's wallpaper from the new Epic Mickey Wii game, via Pure Nintendo!

Concept art from Toy Story 3 that I found on The Art of Disney blog. Unfortunately, their site seems to be down. For forever, possibly. I don't speak French so I can't be sure— oh wait. Ah, I've solved the mystery. Here is a cheap (read: free and crappy) Babel Fish translation of the parting words from the blog owner explaining the situation:
It is not without a certain bitterness that I announce to you the closing of The Art Disney Animation following a warning of Disney. Indeed the latter reproach the site for violating the rights d' author of the firm by publishing drawings their pertaining. I try for the moment to find a compromise with them, but the future of the site seems quite dubious. I invite you to visit the facebook page regularly site to keep you informed of the continuation of the events.
Alas. That was a great resource, even if I wasn't able to read a word of their posts. Here are some gorgeous stills from the movie that are perfectly suited for desktop displays.





Continuing on!

This is a background design from Sym-Bionic Titan, Genndy Tartakovsky's new cartoon series, painted by Kevin Dart. I do believe a few episodes of this have aired already on Cartoon Network, but I haven't seen them yet. See more art on Kevin Dart's art blog.

This is very green. Too green? I haven't used it on my desktop, but I thought it looked minty. Yes, I was in a very minty mood when I found this concept art for a scrapped Amblimation Studio production called The Just So Stories, via One1more2time3's blog.

La casa de Pacha! Art from The Emperor's New Groove by Robh Ruppel, found on John Nevarez's blog.

I'll leave you with this... this... smoulder. Lucky you, this could be your desktop! Haha please make this your desktop. You may recognize this, er, charming fellow from Disney's Tangled trailers. Via David Gilson's blog.
