In 2003, the Starfishman character and story was developed dramatically. The creator of Starfishman, Colby Fulton, used new software from Autodesk called Maya to model the character in 3D and produce some animations. He created the Pacific Marine Institute Island in 3D, and modelled a starfish and other details. The character was still not fully realized at this point, as can be seen in the sample images here. New designs have been created more recently as the character is being developed for the comic series. Artist Lance Webb has taken the character to near photorealistic style.
