A Princess by Title and Fate – Jehnna from Conan the Destroyer

Standard

This is a starstruck, nostalgia filled point of view but to us, the 80’s are home to many wonderful classics of modern entertainment cinema.
And one of those pearls is Conan, the Destroyer from 1984! What’s not to love about this movie? Dark fantasy, action and such an iconic cast!
Definitely a movie to re-watch with a bowl of popcorn and forget about the heat or whatever it is outside.

As part of honouring one of our favourite movies ever, we drew Princess Jehnna, young and childlike and so naïve to the ways of the world.

Maybe next time, we’ll draw Conan :D?
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and like always,

★stay inspired★

PS: We want this movie in 4k so we can study all the details thoroughly!

A Princess by Title and Fate – sneak peek

Standard

Sometimes it’s good to relax by watching old movies from childhood, after a really busy day.

Though we’re not going to reveal from which movie this adorable Princess comes from (not yet!), maybe there’s a clue here and there?

Bartkira StarTwo style! Vol 5

Standard

Bartkira_5_p210_teaser

Hello everyone!★★
Today we bring you the page we did for the Bartkira project – Vol.5. (in addition to the ones we did for Vol.4! Check the post about it ►here◄ )
For those who are not familiar with the project, here’s the description on the Bartkira Roadshow youtube channel:

Bartkira is an animated parody mash-up of The Simpsons and Akira. Based on an idea by Ryan Humphrey articulated through comics, the concept was expanded with the Bartkira project, a comic collaboration of Simpsons fans, curated by James Harvey. In association with the comic, Moon Animate Make-Up producer Kaitlin Sullivan pitched the idea of an animated trailer to match and with the work of over fifty artists, produced the Bartkira animated trailer.

We had a lot of fun once again, as expected, but there was more work involved due to the different characters and rhythm of the action.
Despite the slow pace, this gave us an opportunity to turn what could be considered a “boring” page into something more into the Simpsons’ Universe, but not without being worried on how to translate “Akira” into “Simpsons”.

Squidnapping! Squid smack!

In the end we decided to bring a story within a story, hence the “squidnapping”, making this our favourite page from the ones we made. Well, besides the one with the appearance of Sideshow Bob, because… It’s Sideshow Bob.

Here are some of the stages of the page and also some character studies we did to get a better grip of each one of them.

We hope you enjoy them just as much as we enjoyed being part of this project!
