Mr. Theodore Trapdoor (The FANG)

Here we have the first in a series of archetypal villains!

Mr. Theodore "Business Ender" Trapdoor was once a well established businessman, but one day, all of a sudden people were turned into super-powered monsters. Theo was already a cyborg before this transformation, so it it unknown if he has even changed at all. He has super strength, and an incredible amount of knowledge.

I have been learning the mechanics of pose design, and hopefully you can see this in the pictures. I have realized the importance silhouette and lines of action. I have also realized that it's okay to go off-model if it makes the pose better.

I think I may end up rendering this entire animation in Blender's internal rendering system. Its textures are a lot simpler (to match my style) and its render speed is faster.

He seems scared of something. I wonder what? Good thing the camera is off center so you can't see it at all.
