The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 74
Chapter 74 .diehard fans
The popularity of the trailer for “Unnatural Death” did not affect the normal work of the phantom animation. Xu Rui is busy doing the preparatory work for “Magic Girl Madoka Magica”, including the character design, including the final establishment of the script, and the publicity method. The unification also includes contacting the media studio to organize an audition.
“People have a headache…”
Xu Rui rubbed his temples, and looked at the current characters.
He didn’t want to completely restore the small round face painting style on the earth, but because of the misleading nature of the beginning of this animation, coupled with Xu Rui’s idea of contrasting the innocent pictures with the cruel and tragic stories, people Suppose it should be as popular as possible while remaining cute, at least not at a glance that is low-grade animation.
Previously, “Soul Eater: Zero” was set by Iasa, and “Unnatural Death” was set by Anbara. Iasa is good at anime-style character images, and Anbara’s design is more realistic. Both of them have styles. Not suitable for “Magic Girl Madoka Magica”.
Although Guo Weiren’s original paintings are powerful, they are not good at character design, and other original painters don’t have much experience in character design.
It’s not impossible to find outsiders, but there is no way to know whose style is more suitable for a while.
Xu Rui also thought about looking for some cartoonists to be the original characters, and then make the characters based on the original paintings of Phantom Electric. However, after reading it around, there are very few cartoonists who are good at drawing such cute characters. Some are also unwilling to take over due to schedule reasons.
Xu Rui was worrying, and heard a familiar voice from the stairs.
“I’m here again, I bought afternoon tea and snacks for everyone.”
Li Ruoxuan climbed upstairs with two bags, she put them on the table in the pantry, and glanced at the second floor.
“Wow, Xu Rui, there are so many people on your side.”
She took a cup of black tea macchiato with seven cents sugar to Xu Rui.
“Yeah, you will come here once in the next year, and you haven’t started hiring at that time.”
Xu Rui took the milk tea without rushing to drink it.
“Why do you have time to come here today?”
He knew that Li Ruoxuan was taken seriously by the editorial department after the “Soul Eater: Zero” animation fire, and he took several authors with him, and his work became busy, so he could only chat with himself sometimes on QQ.
“That Daou teacher’s work has been cut in half. I will inform him to discuss the idea of the new work by the way, and then go to another author to discuss the storyboard.”
Speaking of this, Li Ruoxuan’s expression is a little bleak.
“There is no other way. The manga was originally an anime adaptation. Now the animation has been broadcast for three months, it is not popular anymore.”
“Speaking of which, do you know any cartoonists who are good at drawing cute girls?”
Xu Rui had a whim, wondering if Li Ruoxuan has any author resources.
Li Ruoxuan was stunned, and then he thought of the new work announced by Phantom Animation.
“There will be a lot of cute girls in Phantom’s new works? I thought you would try the theme of aircraft warfare.”
“Please forgive me for the machine war. There are not many in the company that can do mechanical settings.”
Xu Rui shook his head.
Li Ruoxuan thought for a while, and then yelled “Ah”.
Xu Rui looked over. Summer is coming. Li Ruoxuan’s clothes are a little thin, and Xu Rui’s eyes are a little bit dazzling. He looks away.
“Speaking of cute girls, I recently took charge of a cartoonist who is good at drawing this.”
Li Ruoxuan said, tilting his head.
“It’s just that she has been worrying about the subject matter of the new work and can’t find any good ideas.”
“who is it?”
Yi Qianqian ate a small half of the cake. Hearing the discussion between the two, she moved her ears and poked her head.
“It’s Mr. Shuhai.”
Li Ruoxuan replied without thinking.
Yi Qianqian immediately stood up straight, she laid down the cake leisurely, and then stepped on her little leather shoes to come to Li Ruoxuan, her eyes widened, and she asked every word.
“Tree? Sea? Old? Teacher?”
“Uh… yes, I know this is unbelievable, but Mr. Shuhai does want to re-serialize a new work.”
Li Ruoxuan was stunned by Yi Qianqian’s excitement at the moment, who was calm and could not help taking a half step back.
“It was probably the first two weeks. In addition to looking for Teacher Daou this time, I came to visit Teacher Shuhai.”
“Ms. Shuhai lives near here? Can I visit her, wait, my comics are all at home… Or I can’t just come to the door so rashly…”
Yiqianqian panicked suddenly, she was like a little girl who saw the object of worship, and she turned around.
“Ms. Shuhai’s work, let me take a look.”
Xu Rui probably understands Yi Qianqian’s mood. When he helped clean the room several times, he saw that Yi Qianqian’s bookshelves were full of works by Mr. Shuhai. During the previous interview, he met with the “Glass-colored The painter of the “Dawn” animation collapsed, she also very severely accused the other party of the crime.
He had seen some cartoons of Mr. Shuhai before, and now Li Ruoxuan mentioned it, he searched for some and took a closer look.
Soon, Xu Rui saw the cover of Mr. Shuhai’s previous manga.
“This style of painting seems to be really suitable for our work, Sister Qian Qian, take a look?”
Hearing Xu Rui’s words, Yi Qianqian also slightly recovered from the excitement of looking forward to seeing the idol. She came behind Xu Rui and looked at the painting of teacher Shuhai.
“Well, Mr. Shuhai is good at drawing cute girls. She has a unique style. She will be the original character. Well, it should be no problem. I am very familiar with Mr. Shuhai’s style. I can change this into a style that can be used in animation. ”
Yiqian nodded lightly, and said calmly.
“Then Ruoxuan, can you help communicate with me?”
Xu Rui asked Having said so much, in the end, the other party had to agree.
“In this case……”
Li Ruoxuan looked at the two of them.
“Why don’t you go to see Teacher Shuhai with me later, I’ll call her first to communicate.”
Suzhou-Hangzhou High-tech Industrial Park, a four-story building with three floors, fierce quarrels came from an office.
“Holowey, I said that your design is not good, now look at the results? Fortunately, I didn’t make your product full line production, otherwise the company will definitely lose more money!!!”
A man in a suit was slapping the desk hard with a report. In front of him, a man in a shabby suit with slightly curled and messy hair had his head drooping, without any rebuttal.
“Now you have to take the responsibility, but there was an agreement at the beginning. If this product line fails, the responsibility is all on you.”
The man on the opposite side was flushed and extremely angry. He waved the report in his hand and let go of his hand accidentally. A stack of paper hit the man in the old suit on the face and then scattered on the ground.
This report contains the sales data of the products in the last two months. It can be seen that, except for the first time, the sales have been falling all the way, and there has been no improvement at all.
Some other pieces of paper have photos of the product.
Those are some plastic models, monsters spliced by various indescribable animal bodies with their teeth and claws.
“Holophie, I tell you, you have been fired, fired! Fired! It is!”
The man’s voice echoed in the office, while the man in the old suit didn’t say a word, silently picked up the scattered paper and walked out.
