A first glimpse into "The Awesome Chronicles of Manny & Khan"
We were lucky enough to have an incredibly talented artist, DanBob Thompson, come in and tie down our characters for us. These are two of his drawings. He really helped establish the style of the show and truly captured the essence of Manny & Khan. Dan also colored the characters for us as a temporary measure, and I hated Manny's color the first time I saw it. But it grew on me more and more every single time I looked at it, so much so that these are probably going to be close to final color.
Below is a background drawn by "Dream-Boat" Chris Tsiriotis. He did an unbelievable job carving out the forest for us. I can't wait for people to see the world he created.

We've been crazy busy at Cartoon Network getting everything ready to be shipped over-seas for animation. Hopefully they'll navigate their way through this production pipeline and become a Big Star product.

I'm sorry if I got them completely out of character... I'm also super sorry that my attempt at the style kinda failed but here you go! http://www.artgrounds.com/61859/full/

There will be more, as I had great fun doodling these two.
