Calvin (Calvin and Hobbes)
Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes.
I a have been a devoted fan of these characters since reading the strip in the paper as a kid. I have been waiting for someone to create a cartoon for them for yr. So I decided to give it a shot myself to at least see how they may look in 3D. I really enjoyed working on Calvin and am looking forword to tackling Hobbes. These images were done mainly as a rig and facial test and though i still have a few kinks to work out I think the whole thing is pretty promising.
My goal with this project is to try animating a few of the old strips. I am an originalist, if there is such a thing. I want to stay as close to the original characters and stories as possible.
