Character Design: Blip the Blood Vessel Microbot

Meet the future of cardiovascular therapy: a blood vessel microbot that keeps your arteries in tip-top shape from the inside. Reminiscent of the classic 1966 sci-fi film Fantastic Voyage, this whimsical animation was created as part of a short course completed at the Academy of Interactive Entertainment. While character development is not a major aspect of science visualisation, creating engaging figures that instantly capture the target audience is a very effective means of communication.  Throw in a few slapstick moments and you’ve got a recipe for success.
