Storyboard Pre-Production


Character Design

My beast and ant are  all in black color because I want to make the characters  really stand out and also represent dark skin people in Africa. I use cut-out style for the background with a lot of texture, so it’ll separate from the beast. I also simplify the shape into very simple form to make it look like ancient Africa art and it’s easier to animate.

The idea is to depict Abatwa’s daily life, what they usually do in their routine? Most people normally choose an important moment or event to demonstrate the beast but I think it’s more interesting showing something that we hardly heard or seen in the myth which is their everyday life. Abatwa is very shy, peaceful and friendly so I add a text ‘Sawabona’ which means ‘hello’ in Bantu (one of the language that use in Africa), to display how friendly they are and they ‘re also an unity society; gathering around and help each other preparing food and have dinner together.
