I just love and cherish this character design! because it has quite a strong and personal connection to myself.
And yes this is the main character for my animation - Art Freak.
Once I found out that this was what I've been looking for I knew straight away that I'm on the right track to produce my animation.
I've been listening to some music from different types of backgrounds which I find really unique and interesting let alone soothing and cool
Here is the selection of songs I've heard so far at this point.
Enigma - Return to Innocence:
Karl Jenkins - Adiemus:
