Tyrant lizard

SCP 682. He’s a monster and he wants to eat you for his lunch. This shape shifting fiend took me a long time to design. I referenced everything I could trying to get working forms for him. Some of my biggest influences were crocodiles, alligators, iguanas, and dinosaurs. It didn’t stop there, however. Creatures from movies like Alien, Cloverfield, Avatar, and various others really helped push the design a lot.
I plan to have 682 gradually grow larger throughout the animation, starting the size of a dog and ending the size of a t-rex. I tried to keep some design consistencies through each of his different phases, so hopefully the average viewer will guess it’s the same monster even if they don’t see the change occur onscreen.

As an afterthought, it almost looks like I designed the evolution stages of some kind of pokemon. Some horrible, evil, diabolical pokemon.

Anyway, as for a status update on his animation. I am currently making revisions to the script, but I have the first act completely story-boarded out. I plan to have my animatic finished either by the end of this month or the end of the first week of August. From then on, it’s animating straight to Halloween night.


SCP 682 in progress sketches

682 took a lot of time to design and was incredibly frustrating. I’ve posted up only a very small handful of sketches that I’ve made in the progress. There’s way more than this, but most of them are too awful or lost in the depths of my sketchbooks or computer files.

None of these are the final designs that I’ve come up with, however some come pretty close or share certain traits. I’ll be posting up the final forms I’ve chosen for him shortly, so everyone who’s been checking in, stay tuned!
