The New Captain Tremaine

You may remember from my storyboard and my animatic that the main character, the pirate captain was called ‘Captain Tremaine’ and I’d designed him as a lion (because Tremaine = Tre-Mane, Lion’s have manes, haha I’m hilarious) and recently I decided to revisit the character and see if I could make him into my own character and move him away from the ‘Zoo Troop’ story (as I don’t own that).

I kept his old design and last name as they’re not really copyrighted/trademarked and decided to give him a first name, ‘Lionel’. Lionel Tremaine, I’m great at lion puns. I also decided to give him a pirate rival who I decided to make a wolf mainly because dogs and cats hate each other, so I can image wolves and lions would hate each other so much more. I also gave him a pun filled name ‘Wolfgang Peterson’. Wolfgang, like Lionel, has the animal name in it so that fits well, and the last name is Peterson after the score ‘Peter and the Wolf’. I know, I’ve very clever when it comes to naming.

Definitely going to develop Tremaine’s story a bit more in the coming weeks!



Summer!! (end of year 1)

Well, my first year of university is over, and boy what an experience it’s been. I can safely say I’ve enjoyed every second of it, even the boring parts, because for the first time in my life I’m dedicating myself 100% to something that I love: Animation. I’ve learnt so much and taken so much away from this experience, and I could not be more excited for year 2! But for now it’s time to enjoy a nice long summer B)
