The Figure

Here's a hi-res image of the character of The Figure from my final year film: DABDA.

This was created by first photographing the actor's face, then tracing over the important features in Flash and combining them with original drawings. I then brought the Flash drawing into After Effects and applied the previously scanned ink textures.

When in motion, the lower half of the body is constantly shifting the Rorschach pattern. The texture of the body is boiling as well, in order to create something of an atmosphere of impossibly perfect cutout animation. Of course I never intended the viewer to think it might actually be cutout.

EDIT: Said film can now be found here!
