Creating the Big Blue was the most daunting task for the whole team as we had to not only create this deeply intricate and colorful world, but we had to match a paper watercolor style in 3D.
I was tasked with helping establish the pipeline alongside my Animation Supervisor in terms of how best to create multiple different assets as well as create over 100 different pieces of coral, sponges, fish, sea life, and auxiliary pieces for use throughout the 25 minute show but most effectively shown within the Big Blue World moments.
