[Movies] Pixar Animator Claims to Create a New Superhero Every Day
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 12.30.2012

Wired interviewed Pixar artist Everett Downing who talked about his hobby of creating a new superhero every day for a year.

Downing stated: "I got into a rut, I wasn't drawing enough and a friend told me I was over-thinking things. I just needed to do something I was really into that wouldn't require too much thinking. I started thinking about designing superheroes and the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to do it. I threw the gauntlet down and decided to draw a super every day."

Downing's rules are that the creation of the character can't take longer than hour. He also gets started with each drawing by choosing a name for a character. He goes on to say: "A lot of my super designs are driven by this list of names. If you have a list of names it's easier to schedule." Each of the characters comes from one of three camps - "Sounds cool,", "Puns/Word play," and "Totally out of left field."

Downing currently has no official plans to use his characters. He did talk about the possibility of a One-shot comic featuring the best of all the characters or a guide book to all the heroes. He stated: "Doing something like this is completely worth it. Looking back, it's a time capsule of where you were at that time. There are ideas where when I'm done I think it was terrible, but a few months later I think its great."

Here are some samples of his work:
