Just to keep you guys familiar with the character I drew some time back which is also the main figure in the film 'Rio', I wanted to draw another version of Blu and call the tutorial "how to draw Rio", step by step. I already said what I'm going to say about Blu in the other tutorial I made on him. What I will talk about though is how Rio is another computer generated movie in a 3-D style animation. It's from 20th Century Fox, and Blue Sky Studios and the film is directed by Carlos Saldanha. Remember when I said that it's supposed to be released in the summer of 2011? Well, scratch that from your list because it's actually going to be in theaters April 15th of this year. Of course the release date can still change because as of right now, nothing is set in stone. Blu is going to be a fun character to watch, and I have a feeling that a movie about a macaw who thinks he is the last of his kind, to only find out that he's not, is going to be interesting to see. What makes the film even more fun, is the fact that he is a house trained bird who never had to learn how to fly, or find a meal on his own. Blu and his owner set out on a journey to meet the female macaw that lives all the way in Rio de Janeiro. When Blu finally gets to Rio he finds out that Jewel is a beauty, and that's when he starts trying to win her heart. Unfortunately they both get kidnapped by a bunch of poachers. Not to worry though because they do escape and that's when they meet their friends Luiz, Rafael, Pedro, and Nico. I think you will love this lesson on "how to draw Rio" because you will not only be drawing Blu, you will also be drawing a beautiful blue macaw bird. I will be back with one more lesson folks and then I'm calling it a night. Peace people and have fun.
