                   Under The Clouds

Under The Clouds is a personnal IP about freedom, adventures and exploration in the idea of creating an animated movie.  My main task was to design two "antagonistic" characters at different stages of their lives, and their feathered companion, in a world enterely covered by a sea of clouds.

Without further ado let's start with our main characters ; Tseten & Jinpa

After writing a brief storyline for my characters, I decided to design their children's and adult versions first, in order to get a slider, making it easier to create their teenage phase.

It also allowed me to define some iconic visual elements that will be repeated during their growth

I wanted these three to be completely different, both in silhouette and character in the idea of making up for the shortcomings of their companion. They represent a trinity which could be simplified by : Speed, Endurance and Intelligence.

I also wanted their saddle to be able to adjust to the different positions a bird can take, without it bothering the pilot too much.

Seeing how the characters, think, act and react to each other in a given situation may be the part where I take the most pleasure lately. Like little windows overlooking their world, I felt like adding some quick context and dialogues was necessary in order to bring them to life.

This additional research, as well as the sketches that follows, allowed me to better define the world of Under The Cloud that I would like to continue developing later.

                           THE END ?
