Concept art is created after the storyboards are complete. The storyboarder figures out what locations and props are needed in the story, and makes a rough indication of those items in the storyboards. The concept artist takes those roughs and refines them — first by researching the styles requested, then designing, adding details and color along the way!

If you want to find out how these drawings become wonderful 3D, please keep reading our blog and know more about the production process of "Hello Kitty and Friends"!

Character Profile: Badtz-Maru

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

Every group has a troublemaker – a mischievous, little firecracker that is brimming with pranks and jokes. Hello Kitty’s group is not an exception to the norm. Meet Badtz-Maru.

Badtz-Maru is a very mischievous, little penguin from Gorgeoustown. He can be very vain for he loves styling his hair. He sees himself as a superhero but what’s weird is he loves collecting posters of movie bad guys. He loves making fun of silly things. Badtz can be a bit vain at times because he looooooves styling his hair.

He dreams of one day being the boss of everything.

If you’ve ever wondered why he’s often called XO? In Japanese,”badtz” (batsu) is term for X or wrong answer. “Maru,” on the other hand, means O or right answer. Badtz Maru, then, not only means “Bad Penguin,” but also “Wrong-Correct,” and is usually shortened to XO.

p.s Today (1st April) is the birthday of Badtz-Maru - Happy Birthday and happy April Fools to Badtz-Maru!

Hide and Seek

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

Shhhhh! Be very, very quiet… I’m hiding from Keroppi. In this episode, Hello Kitty and friends are playing hide and seek in their school. It’s amusing to watch them think of different ways to hide from Keroppi, who is the seeker. However, Keroppi cracks down on them one by one and it’s great to watch Keroppi do it! Watch out for Badtz though… he could be somewhere… dark. Mwahahaha! Pochacco, however, found the best place to hide in. Want to know where? Well, you better stay tuned to The Adventures of Hello Kitty and Friends!

V.I.P. (Very important Pochacco)

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

The Adventures of Hello Kitty & Friends brings another fun-filled episode, and this time, it’s Pochacco’s turn to be in the spotlight. After hearing a thunderous applause on TV, Pochacco starts to crave for that same kind of attention. He then decides what kind of talent he has that is worth the applause the performer on the TV got. Hmmm… let’s just say that what he picked isn’t exactly praise-worthy. Good thing, Dear Daniel and friends support him! True friends, they are indeed! From this episode, I learned that the truth could sometimes hurt and that telling it outright isn’t exactly the right thing to do. Not to spoil anything, it’s safe to assume that everything worked out quite well so if you want to know how Pochacco becomes a superstar, you better stay glued to the tube!

Too bad he has a hard time painting because he’s too shy to ask for help. Hello Kitty and My Melody decide to gather the rest of the gang to help Cinnamoroll and at the same time, make a new friend. Everyone’s excited to help out. Yay! In the meantime, Pochacco checks on Keroppi in his house. To his surprise, Keroppi wants to be a scientist! Hmmm. A friend in need and an aspiring scientist coming together – I smell adventure brewing! Stay tuned!
