So we've only got one more character from MY DADDY to look at, although the Dad's will also appear in the film but in Flash rather than 3D CGI.

And Hugo?

Sweet little Hugo. He's our hero and he only has a few lines at the end of the script. He's the voice of innocence, couldn't lie if his life depended on it. Design-wise I wanted him to have a bit of a bloaty head, which I think looks pretty cute. It's a departure from my usual round or oval heads which I'm guilty of reverting to occasionally.

In Other News

Been a busy day for a Sunday, having spent the afternoon following my rugby team's fortune's on the internet while working on some storylines for the UGLY project. Coming along nicely and feeling very positive. It has legs, as they say!

I have a strong idea of who we might approach as voice talent to get on board, but that's gonna be too early in the day for the purposes of a teaser trailer. If things proceed as they are doing though I'm still hopeful we'll have some visuals animated by summer. The writers are busting their hungry guts to pull out all the stops with their scripts and that's coming across.

I'd say that's what the animation industry has been missing all these years,characters with bloaty heads !!

Maybe on the screen, but there are a fair few folk working behind the cameras and computers of the industry who suffer from cranial gigantism from my experience...

I'll give him a rub but if it looks like he's getting excited I'm going to HAVE to direct him towards you, I'm afraid! Cheers for calling in and we must stay in touch fella
