The Blue Monster character was the first half of a duo of characters I created for another assignment while I was at university.

The purpose of the assignment was to identify my skills by assessing my strengths and weaknesses. This was around the time when I realised I wanted to focus purely on Character Design and create characters for both animation and real time.

The monsters were created from the inspiration I had gotten from Pixar. Specifically their Monsters franchise. I set out to see if I could create my own original characters using the same methods and styles that the studio utilised.

The Blue Monster character was the first of the designs that I came up and is my personal favourite of the two designs. Like other models I later revisited my files to render out again using the Renderman renderer from Pixar. This really lent to the “Pixar” feel of the character.
