posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
24-year-old animator and character designer loundraw announced on Friday that he has founded a new anime studio called Flat Studio.
loundraw became a professional illustrator as a teenager. He posted his graduation project "Yume ga Sameru made" (Before you wake up) in July 2017. The work is a "trailer" for a fictional film.
loundraw drew the original character designs for the Tsukigakirei television anime series, and also provided the original character designs and cover illustration for Yoru Sumino's I Want to Eat Your Pancreas novel. The novel has inspired an anime film using his original character designs.
He also drew the character designs for an animated promotional video based on Yūsuke Yamada's Boku wa Robot Goshi no Kimi ni Koi wo Suru (I fall in love with you through a robot) novel. The novel is now getting a full animated film adaptation, although the staff have not yet confirmed if loundraw will return to the project.
