The past couple days I’ve created this relaxing scene of Xavian with his friends enjoying the sunset. At first, the picture was only going to have Xavian in it. However, I decided to add more characters in the background to create more depth and to showcase Xavian’s friends interacting with each other.
In the background, Rita is chasing Duke for stealing one of her earrings. Duke is known to play pranks on people but especially Rita because of her short temper. Nia is seen laying in the tree behind Xavian because he snores too loud for her and she likes quiet.
Below are the many steps it took to reach this product.
Step 5 (This will be when the picture is ready for print)
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.
I know it’s been almost a month since I last updated you guys, but I’ve been working hard on the graphic novel. Plus there’s this thing I’m doing called college, that is keeping me occupied. As a treat, I’ll show you guys the opening pages for Chapter 1 and Chapter 2. I don’t know the page numbers off the top of my head. Let me know what you think!? #Xavian
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:
As much as I would love to show you guys my Shibuya recreation drawing. You’ll just have to wait until I finish the first chapter to see it. This will be the double spread of pages 19-20. This is the setting where the main story will play out. Many events, fights, and characters will appear and happen at. This took a total of three days to complete. Stay tuned for more updates.
You all have been waiting for the promo video. I’m about halfway done with the first chapter of Xavian. Here it is, our first promo video. In full HD!!!! Don’t forget to share it with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, etc. #xavian #art #comic

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