A friend of mine runs Subversive Comics, and he asked for some idents and a mockup of a motion comic (something I’d already done with Artemis) for a mobile app pitch – . Bearlands is one of their biggest comics about a bear fighting other zombie bears, but more recently their cyber epic Metal Made Flesh has been making waves with discussion of films, and recently featured in Heavy Metal!

These idents were made in After Effects, it’s actually quite hard to model the slash of a claw, but I wanted the film noir/Japanese look to the first, like the manga video game intros of my youth – and the last was more Michael Bay ‘Add More Lens Flare’!
