I started to draw this as a small break from doing the animatic, when I thought what TTV wanted was more like the Netflix Elves series, with a little more anime influence than before.
Then yesterday as I was starting to finish it, they upload the brainstorm podcast and say they want something a little more western in style…
Anyway, I kept CCBS in mind when drawing this. Even if I didn’t make a moc-up, you can probably tell how he’d be built. Cloth pieces galore. I took some inspiration from Elves in how some elements are celarly made from Lego, but look very stylized. It still might be too complex to animate, but the silouhette is easy-ish to draw. Yes, he would make a pretty boring CCBS figure if he looked like this.
I also started this before someone else uploaded their animated version of Kopaka, which you should probably check out as well, if you haven’t seen it yet. Now that TTV is going to discuss the style they’ll be using definitively, I’m pretty excited to see what they have to show.
