Stitch from Lilo and Stitch (a Walt Disney Feature Animation.) Is one of my all time favorite character designs. He's got it all, everything I love about character design rolled up into this blue alien-dog, large eared creature! His expressions are extreme from his cute puppy like eyes that you just fall in love with, to this dark, evil side that he possesses. The film it'self is great, but they could of had a million Stitches which would have made it amazing! Watching Stitch animated and move on screen is a delight. His quick movements standing then squatting and crawling around is animation at it's best! - One emotion to the next, a character with so much character. Also the sketches in Stitches development are treasures in themselves. - (All copyright belongs to artists and Walt Disney Studios, I do not own or take credit for them.)
Besides the movie I own this little Stitch figurine, along with many others. Figurines such as this one is such a good source of reference. Much better then a photo on an image on a monitor. I keep him on my desk for added inspiration.
