Katie and Brandon!  

These are original characters from our Paperman Project, which you can read about more on our blog–> http://bozukastudio.tumblr.com/paperman-project

The drawings are all relatively old at this point but I’m just gonna post what we had from the beginning and post more recent ones as we go. This has been in the works for almost 3 years so a lot of the concept art is pretty spaced out in skill level and design. ^^;

————————–

Brandon - The leader of the anomaly group called “The Crew” that works through commissions from the police, as well as the heart of the Anomaly Community. Brandon wanted to be a musician but his passions fell more into helping others and with his flexible personality and powers, it comes easy to him. He’d give you the shirt off his back if he thought you needed it more. He doesn’t think any anomaly should have to hide or be ashamed of their powers and works to show how helpful and good powers can be.

   Katie - A ferocious, French mutant anomaly that likes cute things and wearing floral dresses but can rip your arms off. She was a ballerina until her mutation came about and she was forced to stop. While it was hard adjusting to living with her mutation, she did so and accepts them as part of her. What she hates most is people who treat her differently or like something broken and needing fixing, and it was that attitude that lead her to running away from home to find a place of acceptance in another country.

anonymous asked:

If Disney did end up not letting you use Meg and George (I think you've mentioned the possibility of this before...), would you ever consider recasting a heavier gentleman as the lead in the Paperman Project?

I did mention it before and though it was seriously considered, we went with somewhat similar body type designs b/c of how much we already had laid out for the story based around how George’s was, although I at least had the Meg alternate with a chubbier design. I think it’s more important to have a female lead not fit the norm and still be seen in a good light than it would the male lead, since he was already kind of like that already in design.

We went with Walt and Pam for the alts., for which I already have the designs for and can be found here, but for a while I really considered Emma and Coulter. The main reason being, honestly, is b/c George’s role goes giant all the time and the situations he’s in sometimes would be catastrophic had he been ALSO heavyset so…

Plus, I would feel bad having a big guy only getting bigger like that (not that I haven’t but it just feels different you know?).

Martin and Lisa are first to post!

   Martin - Short ginger that’s built like a brickhouse with heat manipulation powers and pyrokinetics. He likes to tease but is really chill and has a good heart. Has been a travelling man for quite some time and has training from all over the world and is multilingual. Martin is the only one in the city who dresses up with a mask and has a secret identity as Nameless, and because George found that out by accident, he became his roommate to keep an eye on him ever since.

   Lisa - A fierce government agent that specializes in anomaly affairs. She is sultry and straightforward, but she’s got a bleeding heart. She’s relocated multiple times due to her job, but has moved into the city again recently, hoping this may be the last as she looks forward to her retirement. She wants to do her own thing and finally be able to spend the time she wants with her nephew, whom she mostly raised.

These are some old Paperman Project color keys! or lack thereof for the most part

(Also watermarks are ugly, I know, but we do what we gotta do.)

A few of you may know who have come to my livestreams that we’ve been working on this for almost 3 years now. A bunch of these ones here are done at least over 2 years ago now haha… (although I’ve updated that last one there a bit more recently)
Figured I’d start off with just getting out what we’d started with artwise and update from there.

These are just a glimpse of the full length movie we’ve had in the works and we’re so excited to finally be sharing with you guys!

These are pretty old but I still was quite fond of them. Not much plot relevance exactly but whatever (also blood *gasP*). I never bothered cleaning them up more but doesn’t need it too much. I only did these 2 like this so I’m posting them together.

Don’t be fooled by these tho; Martin and Brandon are dorks.

And tho Martin is a man of many talents, he’s ashamed that as a Scot he cannot play the bagpipes…

Lizzie and Oscar!

(I never really finished up that Lizzie sheet sadly, but she’s actually quite beefy now haha)

————————–

   Lizzie - Brandon’s adopted younger sister from England who basically includes everyone as her best friend unless otherwise stated. Her general default attitude is overly optimistic innocence. She has a very muscular and mature build from gynmastics and weight lifting and often gives the impression she may have super strength and is older, but her actual powers are just as electrifying as her personality and her mind just as naive. Despite her age, she knows when to be serious and is a good asset to The Crew.

   Oscar - A rundown guy with super speed who can be kind of selfish and grumpy but still is a part of The Crew and helps others. Lizzie helped recruit him and Brandon isn’t too happy about his presence but Brandon believes in Lizzie’s optimism more than he does Oscar and lets him stay. He’s been running to escape his problems practically all his life and, though he tries, is not always the most reliable when things get heavy.

Dr. Kyle and Agent Olson!

Although, these 2 designs came at least after almost 2 years in development I believe.

   Dr. Kyle - The local doctor within the anomaly Community who was a former government scientist and has seen some shit and is extremely laidback. Not much surprises him anymore and doesn’t seem to care about anything, but Dr. Kyle does care for the people within the Community and helps where he can. He was also the closest thing to a mentor and father-figure to Brandon growing up.

   Agent Olson - His real name is Orochi. He’s a government agent like Lisa and helps contain anomalies but can be rather cold. He’s not heartless but takes the safety of the public at large very seriously when it comes to anomaly activity and isn’t hesitant to do what he thinks must be done to do his job. His biggest concern is the safety of everyone, whether he’s protected people from anomalies or anomalies from themselves.

anonymous asked:

(Your anon again) I'm on this blog more often than your other one, so I ended up asking here...but it was the previous question from another person that made me ask the question (due to you protecting your characters due to copyright). I don't have an artist agent, just writer agent. Usually breaking into Disney is nearly impossible without an agent, so that's why I mentioned it. Absolutely no disrespect meant, just hoping you make it. :)

Well, usually the issue is not that they’re my own, but that they already belong to Disney (Meg and George from Paperman). My own characters I don’t have as much a problem showing here so much. It’s all kind of complicated with that but I’ve sort of explained it before…

But yes, I’m fully aware that it’s impossible to get into Disney without an agent. In fact, you’d specifically need a Disney representative for them to hear you out. I’ve at least done some research on going about all this and the likely steps we’d have to take for our story to get made.

We have at least some idea of what we’re doing, but thanks. Any help is always welcomed though.
