WIP Character Art

Here is some more character art drawing. Still a WIP. 

Animation Video

Popular anime shows like Dragon Ball Z, Yu-Gi-Oh, Naruto, or Pokemon have many things in common but what we all remember from them were their cool, catchy opening intros.  Without these intros many of the popular animes from our childhood may never have been popular. The intro is usually composed of three elements: a catchy theme song, unique characters, and flashy animation. These elements are essential to attracting in new people to view the shows.

The past three months, I’ve been working on an animated video to bring my characters from my graphic novel to life. This animation revolves around the three main characters, Xavian, Boritta, and Nesia. The three main characters are anthropomorphic creatures; Xavian is a lion, Boritta is a female crocodile, and Nesia is an elephant. Each character has their own unique supernatural abilities. The characters have their own separate introduction in the opening intro that I created using Adobe Flash and Adobe Premier Pro. This animation combines the three elements to create a thirty-second animated intro for my graphic novel.

While I’ve very satisfied with the work I’m done. I don’t consider this video as complete. I’m going to add more scenes to the animation. I plan to submit the final version to future galleries and Film/Video competitions and events later this year. Let me know what you all think! 

 

Animation Preview

For the past three months I’ve been working on a thirty-second animated preview for Xavian. My goal is to have the animation displayed alongside my other works at future galleries. This will be great to draw in new fans and potential employers who need an illustrator/animator. I’m very proud of the job that I’ve done even though this was my first every using Adobe Flash. I’m positive all of my fans will be blown away. The completed animation will be released later this week. Throughout this week I’ll be sharing screenshots of what I’ve been working on these past months.

Main Character List

It’s been a boring day for me but I’m going to give you all an update of Xavian. Who are the main characters in Xavian? There are five main characters, but all of them won’t appear in the first chapter. Here is the character list, let me know what you think:

Hathor & the Fox Base Colors

Here are the base colors for Hathor and the Fox. The hardest part of this poster will be the trees and the snow. I will have to put the snow on each tree branch separately towards the end. There will not be a lot of sun light in this poster compared the other seven posters. I made this piece the cloudiest of them all. So only beams of lights will pierce through the clouds. Let me know what you think.

Hathor & the Fox Inking

Here is the inking of Hathor and the Fox. The inking was done by my friend Alvarex.

Hathor and the Fox Drawing

Here is the 8th poster in the series. It’s called Hathor and the Fox. If you’ve followed the blog from the beginning you’ll notice that I’ve changed Hathor’s design around.

I first modeled her after the Egyptian God Hathor. However I did some research into Korean folktale and decided to change Hathor into a bear instead of a cow. I never really like the cow look on Hathor. It just didn’t look intimidating but a bear is every bit intimidating. Let me know what you think of the drawing.

Thoth and the Tiger Highlights

Here are the last touches to Thoth and the Tiger. I believe I’m done with this poster. This was a bit of challenge compared to the last poster. Trying to get the bright colors to look good on the clouds at the very top. The perspective and keep it correct posed a challenge. The aura or glow around the lightning was very tricky because Adobe Illustrator kept crashing on me, again. I like the way the shadows and lighting made this piece pop out. Let me know what you think.
