Hi All,

The studio I work at had the second annual 5 second animation day, where they gave us artists a day to come up with anything we wanted.

I of course did another Xixa and Pink short. I learned a lot from the second one, and I wanted to do a trial short for the longer short I'm currently working on for Xixa and pink.

So this is a bit longer than the last one I posted and is basically the same idea as the first one.

Enjoy!

Where'd you find the voice for her? Who is she?

Pity we can't see an animated series about Xixa. Cam be a sort of Urusei Yatsura.

I wish! It's my original character and I would love for her to have her own show. Ironically, I'm an animator in the industry, but I haven't put together a pitch that is solid enough to present to producers.

Check out more of her. She's got a folder in my gallery and I set up a fan page for her :iconxixaofxylem:

Definitely hentai-lite, as it were. I would pitch it to adult swim or other channels that would want to have adult style cartoons.

Well does she have a villain she faces
because a hero is half way defined by the villains they face

Do you mean Pink (the tentacle monster) is a villain? He's actually her best friend.

No not what i mean
from what i see she is just there
i don't see no other characters that appear like villains

In batman, half his character is defined by the joker. (there both the same in a way but are yet different)

I like to see her have a adversary thats as cute and sexy as her but is completely different.
For example, have her enemy as a girl jealous of her popularity even though Xixa does not try.
Or have Xixa as a space cop (with pink as her side kick) face a female villain that wants to try to create a strict criminal empire but our hero with her silliness (like harley quinn silliness) defeats her and pink takes advantage of her after xixa defeats her. (like oh you just got owned deal)

You should also try making a background story for her and the world she comes from. I can imagine her world as a planet size las vegas but with different aliens and and there are alot more women then men in her race so she keeps pink around to help her. You see what i am saying.

She was a natural. The gal who did the voice is a PA at titmouse. She's also a professional voice over actress, and the first line she read she nailed it.

You should post your animation. It's the best way to grow.

It's only my plan for them. I have yet to pitch them to a network as a show. But when something happens I will announce here.

Where are you hearing talk by the way?

That's both awesome because of the nice animation and because of Xixa's voice :D. How was the animation done? Is it traditional or are there modern techniques used (like deformation)?

Dadward Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2009  Professional Filmographer
I used the software Flash to animate. But I used traditional techniques to animate both Xixa and Pink.
