Peter Le and Amy Kim originally had a small idea of a fun art gallery dedicated to the original 151 Pokémon that they and many of their friends have all grown up watching. With the help of friends and students in the animation and illustration program at San Jose State University, they decided to make it for a good cause!
They recruited 151 artists and randomly assigned each artist one of the 151 original Pokémon. The artists had the freedom to interpret their Pokemon in any way they wished. The result is the Rare Candy Pokémon Art Auction for Charity.
All artwork made for the gallery will be auctioned off and 100% profit gained from the artwork will be donated to Canines for Disabled Kids. This is a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of deaf and physically disabled children by partnering them up with trained service dogs.
For some of their films, Disney would film real actors so that the animators could watch them for reference.

Hallelujah Mountains, China
These Chinese mountains are the inspiration for creating the environment in the movie Avatar and they are wonder of nature.
I wanted to see mountains while I was in China. Like I did see them, but they weren’t impressive ones unless I hiked to the top to find temples.
