Land Mass Scenery

Water World Land Mass Scenery

Developing under water land mass scenery for the Chronicles of Irofo is a process which has some challenges such as mixing light reflection and refraction.

We step through the initial task of first designing what kind of land masses that will work for our story, where creatures of a mermaid like physique will dwell in, whilst they farm sea beds for plant life and ocean creatures.
There will exist some historical architecture that represents days gone by where their ancestors rose and fell at the hands of natural ecosystem forces and wars of the past.

We also created an audio mood music snippet track for Ghana Movie Music.

Mountain Green Valley

Mountains and Green Valleys…The clip posted is a snippet from Ananse Amazon Scenery we’re creating to be populated by a few villages. The terrain design is based on a combination of sunset memories of central-northern Ghana.
The scene is a generalised scene to be refined and the music is a snippet created in the virtual Afreeka Radio Studio.

Monster Choreography

Monster Choreography, is probably one of our greatest challenges, especially during battle scenes.

During the rebirth of Ananse, he faces a creature born of his own blood. The creature knows nothing but hate and anger, and mistaking his creator for a foe tries to kill Ananse. Ananse flees from the Monster because at his rebirth he is unaware of his strength and capabilities as the son of the God Nyame.

However, we created a test clip to look at something else-Choreography.
As such we chose to assume that even creatures as dark as this, sometimes need to let their hair down and get their groove on, even if it’s for just a minute…we also added a snippet from the Sound track we’re creating for Ghana Movie Music.

Chronicles of Irofo

Chronicles of Irofo workshop

Chronicles of Irofo Water World 3
Chronicles of Irofo Water World 3

From a design perspective you got to love the female form. The sophisticated attention to detail of hair variations like eyelashes to curves of the body such as breasts provides so many ideas in which to craft the anatomy of beautiful biped bodies in our trilogy.

As we explore, the female form it will play a major role in the design of Nyamites and Anasites for the Ghecos evolving population.

We start off our female design investigation by taking a look at the Ananse Atlantic female Nyamites. Females in the Ghecos Universe have several forms they can materialise into, depending on whether they are on land or in water. Nyamite females – more Human than Alien, from Ananse Atlantic are no different, some not all, can exist on land as bipeds and in water as mermaids. They are designed to be hunter gatherers of ocean and land wildlife and plants.

Soon we will take a look at Anasite Females more Alien than Human who also have similar capabilities, but on the other hand are more a kin to vampire and vulture predators and tend to feed on Nyamites and have some cannibalistic tendencies. They also hunt in packs , the largest sea creatures, for their bites are either lethal or transforming – that is if ocean victims don’t die from bites, they undergo a metamorphosis and become hideous versions of their original selves, Anasite monsters.

Nyabot Anabot Monsters

Nyabot and Anabot monster creations battle it out after fusing with “Ghaladamite Ore”. In the Ghecos Universe, Ghaladamite Ore is a special chemical compound that animates dead or inorganic matter. It features in the trilogy Chronicles of Een, Chronicles of Muna and Chronicles of Irofo as the key ingredient that enables both organic creatures and machines to mobilise their own kind of robots.

We know of the usual kind, the terminators of these worlds, but there are 3 in total, Organic Robots, Machine Robots and Organic Machine Robot Hybrids.

The test movie features a basic and rough design of a Nyamite Organic Robot. The other two types of robotic creatures feature in the Chronicles of Muna.

The organic robots are designed with plants, trees and Nyamite and Anasite creatures in mind. Nyamite robots descended from Nyame are referred to as Nyabots and Anasite descended robots, Anabots.
