And seven were the chosen...

So it's nearing the end of February and I haven't posted since last month so I thought it would be a great time to post an update and say hello.

"Hello!"  Well not too much has changed on the job front unfortunately. I actually applied to my 74 job today. So that's still going on and I have been working on art and projects :D! As I mention in my last post, I'm working with someone on a animation project... I'm making the character concepts. Which we are actually getting to the ending point (some of these are even further along than I'm posting. I actually sent the last two rough character sketches yesterday.  But I will post them all since technically I have visuals for all of them. The visuals vary per character... some have multiple poses or single poses with weapons. They were done just to basically give a form to the characters and some needed more or less to explain each one. I am not the actual animator so the animation will be produced using my concepts. 

The story is a follow one boy, a son of the original seven set of heroes that protected the mankind. After a destructive war when he was a child, the seven were destroyed and he was swept away being a survivor as the world spun into a horrid totalitarian society. But his destiny is larger than merely being a survivor. After being train in the arts of the sword he has to take to the field again and bring forth a new group of seven to stop the leader's reign of terror.

The world has an older feel to it... similar to the story telling that we knew from the 80s. Good is good and evil is evil. There is no redemption.
It also has a lot of cultural variety.
