Cocodrilo is a dreamy, funny and daring character, but also vulnerable. He has a cool drawing and a simple physiognomy with short, non-articulated arms and legs, a large head and non-existent feet.
This is a character designed by pieces, to be animated digitally, as if it were a cut-out to animate. Its design includes front, side for both sides and back view. Independent heads for all views. It also includes items like a shirt, tie, jacket, hat and stick, plus a lot of alternate clothes to swap around. The features of the face are animatable such as eyebrows, upper and lower eyelids and different mouths.
This character has been rigged to allow the handling of the character through controls, reaching hundreds of lines of programming code, but which make its animation easier.
We have make the facial expressions as a stop motion character to animate by replacement. Drawing different facial expressions that allow to transmit feelings, but also to be able to speak. We have designed eyes with different interchangeable eyelids to blink and gesticulate with the eyes, as well as eyebrows that can move freely.
