This is an animation still from a scene completed December 12, 2004. The little boy is taking the Alien out for a walk (or I suppose in this case a "hover"). This was a fun scene to do - and it is one of the first scenes that showcases the joyous relationship between the characters. There is some faked dimensionality with the sidewalk and homes as they walk towards the foreground. All 3-D effects are created with 2-D techniques. Have a good Thanksgiving everyone, I'll be posting next week after I return from a Canadian holiday!
