It's still really rough, but I wanted to put up here since it's been awhile since we talked about it.


The story starts at night with a kid in some situation (lonely or something) when they look to the sky and see a shooting star. They make a wish.

This wish shoots to the sky and and latches onto the star. As the star finishes it's journey it is collected by some creature. The wish goes to the place where wishes are processed by a wishmaster (or grantfather). There are also creatures that clean up the discarded wishes that are not going to be granted.

One of the creatures sees the child's wish and empathizes with their situation. Maybe the creature is lonely too. It decides to try to get the wish granted.

The wishmaster takes the wishes to the star where they get granted, and the little creature decides to venture there too. But the journey get hard. He doesn't make it, but he finds out that the child has managed to make the wish come true on their own.


I was thinking about the theme of the story, since that's what we have had trouble with. For me, the core idea is that some wishes aren't meant to be granted. Some things you have to work for to achieve. Now that I have some time I want to refine some of the plot points, but that's the gist of it.

I put up some images from Nocturna, which was one of my major sources of inspiration and I really love the art style. Also, some idea sketches about the little wish creature. I wrote some notes on him. I think he would be really fun to animate.

Old Character Sketches

These aren't really character designs, they were just some sketches to explore character ideas I did awhile ago for the old story. Just wanted to start a little more brainstorming.
