Beverly Hills Chihuahua

Tippett Studio modeled, rigged, lighted, painted and animated the comical characters Chico the iguana and Manuel the rat.

Tippett also created digital doubles for the animal actors for certain scenes, such as the chase scene in which Delgado matches paces with El Diablo.

Chico and Manuel were completely digital characters, painted using a combination of Tippett’s proprietary fur tools and Photoshop.
