i've been starting RUCANS since mid 2011 - 2012
Rucans is a Passion project of mine, creating stories about alien race that have large ears like bunny.
it's all started with a piece of paper.. while im on my office listening to a song and i high pitched it.. and then all of the sudden i got an image of a Rucans..
the story was originally about Muss
a Rucans meets a human named Mike
it's about a stranded alien on planet earth, slowly make muss feel belong on earth..
Then Comes Asgarri
the Rucans, which was actually Muss designated mate from her planet.
and all the story widen ever since..
Their proportion designs originally is a little weird and wonky, but way the times goes.. they're getting refined
at one point in 2012.. i found Extvia
on deviantart and he is an inspiration for me.
i dont have pentablet that day so i tried my best to re design muss better
since i redesign muss, i started to expand even more into the depth of the system and stats
clans, unit, species, and more.. therefore new characters been added.. more technologies, more ideas
i'm getting quite a feedback from deviantart and i feel supported..
moving forward to 2013
i established the Rucans as a serious project i will bring to life soon..
More diversity and more Character stories.. and yet i just found "Furry"
terms later on that day.. im pretty new to all furry-stuff and
i dont even realized that what i made is a furry thing.. but yet i try to embrace it, hit the fandom, join groups and comunicate with the people inside
turns out i got a crazy feedback.. i felt like my Rucans is a good start for my future, im getting even more excited to continue this project.
Fast Forward to 2014
my friend lend me her Pen Tablet and im start using it to draw Rucans
Nikki Gyra was the first rucans i uploaded to Deviantart after i used pen tablet
and she is the one who boom my Rucans Project, i got many many comments feedback of my characters and people
getting interested to know more about em..
i start to make even more characters with different stories
and i think 2014
was like the golden age of my rucans, cuz i also made FNAF fan arts that day, and its
pretty pull some crowd to my project2015
was the year where i finally refine all the character design, especially Muss
.. as the Main Protagonist
and also my absolute Hit Rucans pic i ever made..
7k fav, and 100+ comments
at this point i think i quite peaked the Rucans interest on people..
too bad at 2016 im starting to get busy from college, im started to less drawing stuff
and im in pursue of another dream project called Fastlane City
which draw the attention away from Rucans..
and since FNAF is no longger a big Hit on the internet.. my project seems fading away..
i start to visualized the other aspect than the Rucans em self, the planet they were livin'
and didn't seems draw much attention, later it makes me fading from this project..
but i didn't give up..
on late 2017 i tried to give this project a little shot..
i tried to maximize the idea of their planet their surroundings their visual.. story telling though how it's gonna looks like as
didn't catch much crowd back.. but still show me some light that this project will be good..2018
is probably the last time i tried to bring Muss back to her light..
quite show some interest by how i put easter eggs refrences, but not enough to beat the 2015 version
i know, nothing will stay forever..
i created new project Bikey's Universe (i know i've been making too many project right now)
but i hope.. i really do hope.. that Rucans still got their own charm
i wish 2019.. i could do better for this project..
i've teamed up with my GF to bring this franchise a go.. but i really need your opinion on "will this project make a good hit?"
and i really wanna know your mind about this Rucans project.
Thank you <3
