Hombre Mcsteez uses transparent animation cels to add his quirky and humorous animated characters into real world situations. His little monsters and cute creatures interact with the environment that is seen behind them, through the transparent cel. Mcsteez uses a method of animation known as stop frame or stop motion animation.

The really tricky part of Mcsteez’s style is that he often animates objects in the background, which means that not only does he have to draw his character frame by frame, he also has to move the background objects a little in order to make them interact with the character.
