Hippopotamus Amphibius!

In April I started working on the character design for our new movie at Ambient Entertainment. It's called Die Konferenz der Tiere (The Conference of the Animals) and is based on the famous book by Erich Kästner written in 1949. The story takes place in Africa and features - as you may have already guessed - all kinds of animals. That means of course a lot of research and so I already bought my annual ticket for the Zoo in Hannover, which is quite marvelous by the way.

But there are no hippos at all in the story. Can you believe that?

Hi Oliver!
Greats characters!
I like the hippo, it´s incredible to achieve this result with three traces.
