Eagle Animation Tests

Character sidekick development

Decided initially to make the sidekick a little girl who was either a sibling etc to the hero character however figured that it would be more interesting to make her villain sidekick. she is a little girl originally from the planet earth who wound up on the villains planet. The villain adopted and changed parts of her to be robotic and help aid her. She is fast agile and can be a trickster and fool the hero at times leading him into traps etc.

Character: Hero designs 2

Some variations of an initial design, of the hero character as a bulky guy who wears animal skins/fur, long hair, and in touch with nature as oppose to technology.

Character: Villain ideas 2

some more villain designs for the cyborg queen character based off of initial drawings. most designs include her having long medusa-like/ H. R Giger-esque cybernetic pipes for hair, with possibly vicious robotic snake-like creatures on the ends. they would probably hold some kind of fluid to keep her alive etc.
