Obscure Fandoms Time: Akima from Titan A.E. by Acaciathorn Obscure Fandoms Time: Akima from Titan A.E. by Acaciathorn
When I was a kid, ~mountainsandthesea and I were obsessed with Don Bluth's animated scifi film, Titan A.E. Akima was my first encounter with a gun-wielding, badass space pilot, and she obviously left an impression ;)

We watched the film again recently, and we were like...what IS this dialogue?? But I don't care. I still love the movie. And I love the books even more (especially the prequels. Qu'ut Minor, anyone?).

Enjoy the first installment of the Obscure/Underloved/Atypical Fandoms Series - which will feature characters that I've never drawn before and who come from fandoms that are lesser-known or unpopular here on dA :XD:
boring pose is boring, sorry about that

Yeah. 2 prequels ("Akima's Story" and "Cale's Story" by Rebecca Moesta/Kevin J. Anderson) and one movie novelization ("Titan A.E" by Steve and Dal Perry). Of these I'd say Cale's Story is the best...the movie novelization is interesting in that it includes chapters from the perspective of the Drej, but it was clearly rushed to print because it has numerous typos.

Nice work, especially your use of lighting (though it doesn't look quite natural, the effect in the picture is profound!)
I loved titan ae, it satisfies the space-opera cravings better than the star wars prequels do.

Everything wrong with Thumbalina was fixed with Akima when she kicked the other slave's asses.

Another great one! Titan A.E. was one of my obsessions way back when. And I know exactly what books you mean-I own them! (I'll have to find them and reread them again one of these days.)

Great job!

This honestly made my day. I fell in love with this movie when I saw it when I was little and I still love it today. :XD: I think this was probably my first introduction to animated movies and shows more aimed at older audiences instead of little kids. And Akima was awesome. I didn't know it was a book series to! I love the lighting here and how even though she's not moving there's a lot of motion and strong confidence in her.

What dialogue are you refering to?
Reply
:iconacaciathorn:
Acaciathorn Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
There were some funny, clunkily-written dialogue phrases in the movie. Particularly when they were on Tau-14. Still love the movie, though... (and ADORE the books!)

Glad someone else has read Cale's Story!
