Bernie Estevinho is a 1st year Animation Production student who created these illustrations to fit alongside his story about a character called Rikku.
Story Time –
Following the Emperor’s wishes Rikku goes on a mission in one of the land’s oldest colonies. The knight faces something unexpected as he gets there, making his return uncertain. These two illustrations were part of the initial concept that helped developing the final look for a illustrated animated book that was projected at the Foundation Studies Exhibition (2014 / 2015), Rikku’s story was one of the possible themes to be explored on this final piece but its complexity put the project on hold till now where I get the chance to share the visual development for something that never was.
