Questionable name aside, this is a character modelled from a design by one of my traditional animation colleagues for her final project. I was intrigued by her interpretation of these elemental characters (one was fire and the other was water), and what I wanted was to create a layered model that would eventually be able to honour the original, fluid animation she had done.

This is a character model I built off of a simple design from our traditional animation class. I thought it would be a nice change from the primarily bipedal characters I made for almost all our other projects.
2015 brought us at least two top-notch, high-profile dinosaur films, but I made this around Christmas in 2014. I’m telling you, I think Universal and Pixar stole my idea!
