I have also been looking into ideas for designs for creatures that only my main character will see. After watching a documentary on James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’, it said that alot of the aliens were based on organisms he found in the deep. My designs will be simple as I am not an animator, but I have a few ideas of how I can animate them to look professional. I may even look to try some simple designs in Maya so that I could add some 3D elements to them. However, I have not done this before so will only test them out.
I will upload them once i’m happy with some.
