An abandonated Dofus animated serie:
"Yesterday I finally saw the first episode’s beta of the animated series which was going to be called ”Dofus”. It motivated me to take a little courage and sort the huge amount of concepts, designs and layouts that I made for this project (Reminder: Director: Eunyoung Choi, Anthony Roux and Maasaki Yuasa writing the scripts , Kurashima san as character designer working together with people from Ankama team who had also made proposals and Juan Manuel Lagunaas animation director). It was a dream project, we wanted to do new things, to dig into the aesthetics of the sets and characters and to find out a way to work together between Japan and France, while experiencing new ways of work with flash and traditional animation. Unfortunately the project could not be completed but the work done, even if it is not conclusive, was a very rewarding experience. I’ll try to post little by little drawings for the different locations of the first two episodes, which could give you an idea of the aesthetics of the project.
I just wish that one day this project will be reworked …”
Some of the pictures have names like Welsh village, Bonta King’s Castle, throne room, market…
These pictures were posted in 2011, however we all love Kerub and Joris’ animated series!
