The Art of the Legend of Vox Machina

Sunday 10/16 11:30AM - 12:30PM Room 101

Titmouse, Arthur Loftis, Phil Bourassa

When Critical Role decided to pitch an animated series based on their tabletop RPG campaign, they turned to the Emmy award-winning animation studio, Titmouse. Art Director Arthur Loftis and Lead Character Designer Phil Bourassa will discuss the evolution of the Critical Role universe from role-playing livestream into a high budget action-adventure series on Amazon Prime.

The Legend of Vox Machina was initially funded by a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign that stunned both fans and creators. Since then, the creative team at Titmouse has worked closely with the cast members of Critical Role to capture the magic of their sprawling universe.

During this panel, Arthur and Phil will cover the challenges of adapting an existing story that spans hundreds of hours, and the expectations that come with a project backed by fan funding. They’ll also dig into the design process of building a world that has already been represented in comics, campaign guides and fan art.
