My third egg. With a good comedic script, a score by Elton John and Tim Rice (Lion King), and decent animation it’s hard to believe that Road to El Dorado was Dreamwork’s only box-office loss but it’s slowly been picking up a following over time and this was one of the funner eggs to create. Who doesn’t love to work with the color gold?

Second one! The Prince of Egypt. Though more forgotten than underrated, it still manages a ‘classic’ status. Dreamworks made a bold choice having their 2nd film be a Biblical animated musical but it sure paid off. It brought forth an epic story of equally epic animation.

The start of a new sculpting series I’m doing. When I was younger I made a Fabergé egg replica and recently have decided to try to attempt this again but with a added theme. Each one I make is going to be based off of a different Dreamworks animated movie (typical me).
As such I will only be doing period films. As much as I love the film, making an ornamental egg about Madagascar just doesn’t seem right.
The first one out of the bunch, Sinbad: Legends of the Seven Seas. A rather underrated film, and Dreamwork’s last traditionally/hand-drawn animated movie.
