bloated man





These were my designs for the bloated man ! A man who had died on the beach at Brighton after going for a quick dip and got caught by the tide and was washed up weeks later and found by a bunch of chavs who poked his bloated body with sticks !
He was a character from the Corpse Bride film that never featured , unfortunately . I think the budget for new puppets had run out and so was never made . It was a shame really because he would have been an interesting character and a bit different from the usual zombie/skeleton type . He was going to have water squirting out of him every time he moved . i think the animation dept saw it as a lot of work ......they were probably right !!

Yeah, I like the bottom one best too. He's the most whimsical of 'em all.

Great character designs. I'm going to visit Corpse Bride a.s.a.p. and will brag about you to my wife and friends. :)
