Tiki Masks, John & Hazel

Since my wife and my anniversary trip to Hawaii I've really been into Tiki statues and the whole island culture. I've really been inspired to put some of that into my Counterpoint designs




I'm finally getting to searching for a look for John the main character of the story.

Hazel, Thumbnails & Studies

Hazel's vines can extend from her body to allow her to do different things. In this case her vines are lowering her like in Mission Impossible.
I thumbnailed the first moments in the story when the ship crashes and Hazel investigates.

Mothers and Creatures

I've been playing around with designs for John's Mother. I want to make her likable since even though both of John's parents get killed off fairly quickly in the story and John won't remember much of her since he's a baby the audience needs to feel a bond to them.

Another pass at John's Mother Lara. I like that since that was the name of Superman's Mother. The plant woman is Hazel's Mother we will find out through flashbacks that before John arrived Myriel's wife was kidnapped. That will come into play later when John grows up and develops his abilities to foresee the future and to read plant creatures minds. His abilities will help Myriel and Hazel to find and free her again.
Sea Plant Creatures made out of kelp.

Watermelon and Tree Creatures. The bottom one is another one of the scavenger creatures briefly mentioned in another post. They are like cannibals, they kill other plants and absorb their abilities or characteristics.

WIse Old Tree and Myriel's Home

I still have a way to go in designing this character, but the leader of the area is a kind, wise old tree.

Since John is an alien to the inhabitants of this planet Myriel brings John in front of the Grand Council for regular meetings to ensure that he does not pose a danger to the plant aliens.


This is the first time that Hazel brings baby John home to her Father Myriel after finding him on the crashed ship.

Different places and aliens of this world

At some point in the story Myriel, Hazel and John go on a journey to find Myriel's wife who had been kidnapped soon before baby John had arrived to the planet. Myriel doesn't know that it was a kidnapping at first, but certain things happen that cause him to find out about it.

As they travel around the planet they come upon all sorts of plant creatures that are indigenous to that area. These are cactus creatures and people from a desert area and some flower aliens from another area of the planet. Myriel's city is the main city on the planet a very diverse in its population.
Farm workers, Potato and Corn Aliens. The workers produce fruits and vegetables which gets shipped to different areas of this world for the aliens to buy and eat.
Farm buildings for storing food. Theres a small Mech there for farm work.
