Creature Idea: Animation

To tie in with the type of short film I want to create, I want to make something that an audience will immediately like. Something pleasurable to the eye, “cute” as the kids say.

The characteristics I want my creature to convey is mostly innocence and naivety. To do this I’m thinking a small, rounded body shape. Big, bug eyes and maybe a waddle as he walks. I’m thinking something along the lines of a Pog from the Star Wars franchise (pictured below) but mix in a native New Zealand reptile, like a Tuatara.
