Have you watched Secret Life Of Pets? Secret Life of Pets is a 2016 American computer-animated comedy film produced by Illumination Entertainment. Russ Gray created a number of art pieces for this extensive style guide program, including stylized character art. Although the stylized illustrations were initially only intended as place-holder until final 3D character art was produced, the stylized art was well-received enough that it was used across a wide variety of product categories sold worldwide.
