Posts Tagged ‘Tim Burton’

So i was thinking the other day about writing about or world building a sort of cartoony fantasy world with a sort of Tim Burton-esque feel to it. In my minds eye, it was primarily black and white with the occasional red. A dreary landscape with lots of depressing characters and locations. The characters i imagined looking almost like the old Final fantasy sprites crossed with the Binding of Isaac characters.

I had an idea for a character called “Creep” who would be the protagonist. He was going to be a fairly ordinary young waiter who was thrust into a frankly mental city with many pop culture and video game references. One idea i had was having Creep infiltrate a suicide cult whose members topped themselves by dressing up in white and red robes and jumping off roofs a-la Assassin’s creed. That may give you an idea of the style of humor I’d intend to use for this.

Here is a very poor picture of poor little Creep.

Creep

I’m not quite sure what to call the style here (Tim Burton perhaps?) but I’d imagine the majority of characters would look like something along these lines in this fantasy world. So yes, just a random idea that came to me today.

What do you think?
