To create the dinosaur’s blend shapes, I wanted to use a reference that I could match as close as possible. In this case it was Aardman’s Purple and Brown.
Brown and Purple. (YouTube, 2017).
I was able to slow the footage down and focus on the chewing action of brown. I noted the following key shapes and drew them out to model.
Below is the final model for the blend shapes. I also included a smile for the final shot of the completed logo.
Overall,I think the facial expressions look pretty good! And my team really liked them too.
