The Sea Monster Who Couldn't Swim
About the project
This is some early 3D concept work for the upcoming The Sea Monster Who Couldn't Swim movie. This is based on the work of Norwegian illustrator Thore Hansen, who has a wonderful and very distinct style.
The challenge was to keep his style while making something that would work as a contemporary CG film. To make this work the renders use a lot of drawn elements, all done by the movies director, Endre Skandfer. I also sculpted some of the models in VR, using Adobe Medium, for a more handmade and ornamental look.
