I designed this Alien whose short with long arms as I thought it would be funny. His face was a bit different, but then I saw Lilo and Stitch ( great film) and I borrowed the Chris Sanders mouth.
I wanted to do a dialogue scene but, as I was pressed for time, didn't want to animate two characters. That's why Trigger is represented as a cylinder. I thought it was funny. Foster's is in the background because I think that show is great.
I did IK on the arms as I wanted lots of joints but I think I messed it up a bit. I didn't want to do big, wild poses as Rodney's dialogue isn't very loud but I wanted the lines to be hit and the poses to be read. That is why the poses a kept still for longer.
Again if sound is a problem I apologise. I have included some model sheets. This video is also up on Youtube.
