I'm a fan of Takashi Murakami and I've always thought that his design style is so suitable for animation. so i desided I'd animate a character in his style. but I've actually found out that he's recently been making animation, mainly in 3d, it looks really really cool. here's a link to a couple.
anyways I've design my own character in his style, which was well fun. i wanna show on my reel that can work in a range of style and do a bit of composting.
so here's Poly Tri-topus. I'm animating her spotting a fish and running after it.
here's the animation

and here's a test comp of what i want the finished piece to look like.

I'm gonna ad some more bit and pieces and try some other ways of making it look more like it's under water. maybe add bubbles and stuff.
if you have any suggestion's feel free to let me know.
and here's the character called Fishthinger which Ploy Tri-topus is gonna eat.
