Yeti takes to the Moto X boot screen

Motorola surprised us with a yeti, an alien and the Loch Ness monster on April 1, with a new, supernatural boot animation for April Fools' Day. And now the manufacturer is giving a sneak peek behind the scenes of the stop motion-animated scene.

An entry on Moto's official blog details the artistic process that brought these otherworldly beasts to devices earlier this week, starting out with simple drawings and moving onto complex miniature models. The 7-inch puppets were then brought to life through 192 frames of animation, which is what you'll see if you boot up your Moto X or Moto G in the next 11 days.

You'll find more, including photos of all three critters, over in Motorola's blog entry.
