The saga of The Last Mystical Legend of the Fantastic Fantasy Trigger Star
continues...BONUS DIRECTOR'S COMMENTARY
-And so we introduce the fan-favorite supporting cast. I'm actually really proud that Trigger Star evolved into a series where the sub-characters totally outshine the main one (I see it as a subtle form of karma).
-The background colors are red, purple, orange, and blue; the bandana colors of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I was thinking about their introduction from the first episode of the classic cartoon when I colored this.
-Breadbun and Snacktray were meant to be direct parodies of Aerith and Tifa from Final Fantasy 7. They also fall into the Bimbo/Bitch
character trope. This wasn't originally by design but as I started to work with these characters, I began have fun with the idea.
-Saurkraut was designed after a very good friend of mine who was a former marine and built like a tank (and probably one of the nicest guys I've ever met). I basically gave him boobs, long hair, lipstick, and a stray whisker and thus Saurkraut was born. She's actually become one of the studio's favorite characters.
-Corned Beef Hash was based loosely on Jim Kelly, famous for his roles in Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon and my favorite guilty pleasure, Black Belt Jones.
-All the characters were specifically designed to fall into certain fantasy, cultural, and storytelling stereotypes/cliches but turned slightly on their heads, in some ways that we have yet to reveal in the series. Looking forward to surprising a few of you guys before Trigger Star meets its end.
