Cyntoph Expressions

Cyntoph Model Sheet

Cyntoph Bio

Within the walls of The Great Acropolis, Cyntoph held rank
as one of the most famed individuals in the city. In the prime of his
youth, he was the epitome of athletic and competitive excellence, as well as a learned young man. But now, an aging Cyntoph finds his fame dwindling in a society that glorifies youth. He has chosen to leave his wealthy palace and The Great Acropolis to venture out into The Wastes, and discover a mythical land of legend. Despite the lack of belief among the general populace of this land's existence, Cyntoph has vowed not only will he discover this land, but he will found a new civilization on its grounds, and re-establish his greatness.

As far as character goes, I'm really interested in the Greek depiction of the human form in the red and black figure ware ceramics, as well as whatever I can find within ancient Celtic representations. The concept art for Legend of Zelda:Wind Waker really did an excellent job of interpreting this mythos-heavy art, and has a very visually appealing design to me. I'm also a huge fan of Blizzard's concept art.

The Dao of Fishing

The Dao of Fishing from Michael Nanna on Vimeo.

Painting on cels was a great experience, but a little maddening.
To put things in perspective though, I used 6 colors on the cels for my entire film. Jiminy Cricket had a 29 color palette alone...
