One of the last projects I had the pleasure of working on at The Mill, I was responsible for creating an extensive number of facial (and breathing) blendshapes to give these cute little aliens the ability to run through the wide array of emotions that Netflix shows and movies give them. I did my best to stick close to human muscle groups where I could, but being that their anatomy is entirely different I had to interpret how I thought their muscle and fat would move around their faces as they did things like smile, laugh, cry, and rage.

It was a really fun exercise and I love the way it came out. The animation team, rigger, director, and really everyone involved on this were champions.
