Had much fun coming up with the look for this film. For the backgrounds I wanted a solid but light look to give the city a summery feel to it, then adding lines, colour splashes and details to frame the main character.

Starting off drawing up our hero had him looking as on the left but the client wished for a more “human” look so I had to narrow the head and give up my vision of a spherical headed alien dwarf sporting a slip-over. I can live with that.

This is a mixed media production including miniatures, great 2D design and animation and beautiful CG environment and water. AAO directed, created the character design and 2D animation, ILP did all the 3D, compositing and grading. A great collaboration that needs recognition to all the artist involved.
