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.

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!
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:
