MYTHIKA
  • Since the earliest days of storytelling mythology has been a wellspring of inspiration; telling us truths about the world around us and lighting our imaginations on fire with tales of heroes, gods and fantastic creatures. When it came time to develop our first original IP, I wanted to add our own contribution to this grand tradition by creating something timeless yet modern.  What follows is early visual development for this project that is currently being developed at Magnus Rex as both a graphic novel and an animation.

    We looked at classic animations such as "Havoc in Heaven" and the "The Little Boy and the Eight-Headed Dragon" as well as Wayang shadow puppets for inspiration to create a mythology that combines elements of both the ancient and the modern.
