FAMOUS MONSTERS from Chris Roman on Vimeo.

Happy Halloween!! Here's the complete Famous Monsters animation. If you've been following you probably saw my various Famous Monster illustrations. About halfway through them I decided to rig and animate them in After Effects. I posted a couple cycles, after which I decided it would be cool to put them all together in one scene. So basically everything kind of snowballed into this and I think it turned out pretty cool!

I created everything in this project from scratch except for the music (Alexandre Desplat) and the font (GoGoZombie).

Who knows, maybe I'll do one for Thanksgiving too!

Another Famous Monster animation! 

Nosferatu Cycle!

I'm working on a project that incorporates all the Famous Monsters I made so far. Here's a quick animation test I did with the Nosferatu character. I'll be doing one of these for each character and then assembling them all together. Hopefully it works!

Famous Monsters Part I: The Creature From the Black Lagoon!

Throughout the month of October I'll be doing a series of illustrations called Famous Monsters. Today's monster is my interpretation of the Creature From The Black Lagoon. He's playing the trumpet because this one in particular is for an animation I'm working on. More on THAT...soon!

If you want to suggest a famous monster for me to draw, comment or send me a reply on Twitter (@chrisroman). I'll get to as many as I can. I think this particular one was suggested by @EastonAllyn. Thanks Easton!
