I recently rewatched the wonderful LILO AND STITCH with its lovable, anarchic alien lead.
Initially I wanted to try a more realistic approach to Stitch, that kind of anatomical reality that Terryl Whitlatch applies to fantasy creatures. I’ve also been looking at the terrific work of Emily Coleman, who excels at these kind of creatures (and has a book out now!)
In the end, with only a few nods to realism, including Pug-like rolls of fat and plaque, I stuck pretty close to Stitch’s creator Chris Sanders‘ design.
If it ain’t broke… Well, Stitch will probably break it.
