/  Ben

Ben is 10 years old who is the boy really likes Kung-Fu. His favorite character in Kung Fu is Luce Bee (like Burce Lee). He wants to make the move like Luce, so he started to learn Kung-Fu.

I also created various charts to define how Ben would look from different angles and situations. This process helped me understand what aspects to consider when designing characters for character animation

/  Mosquito


Mosquito is a character like an old master who likes to tease the young kid. In the animation, this old master teaches Ben how to do Kung-Fu through teasing him.


Since the mosquito character appears mostly in very small scale throughout the film, I specifically designed how it would look when tiny, when flying, and also created a special pose for a close-up shot.

The story takes place in Ben's attic bedroom, filled with Kung-Fu decorations like posters and figurines. His walls feature posters of his favorite Kung-Fu idol, Lusce Bee, reminiscent of 70's Bruce Lee posters. I used a 3D model as the layout foundation, then added lighting and painted over it to create the final background for the animation.
