Current Animation Project

So recently I've been working on a short animation.  It's called Ragnar Danes: Space Warrior, as you can gather from the title it's a space themed adventure.  The main character, Ragnar Danes, was based partially on Zapp Brannigan from Futurama with some major alterations.  He has Zapps incompetence, stupidity and overall cruelness to his crew; while on the other hand he does actually know how to fight, and no he isn't a sexual deviant.  His first mate and pilot is named McQuirck who serves as the logical yet apathetic sidekick in this adventure.  The first episode is mainly dialogue between the two, which I feel does a really nice job showing their relationships.  It will be about 3 minutes long and I plan to turn it into a short series if it does well (or at least ok).  I had a lot of fun writing the script and the characters I want to introduce in later episodes are great additions.  It should be done in a few weeks, all of the voices are recorded, the characters are made, and most of the sets are done.

This is the sketch I drew a few weeks ago that gave me inspiration to make it.  This is basically what the characters look like (only colored, so they look much prettier).

If you want to see some of my previous animations, you can check them out here
