THIS TIME HANNU KOSKINEN SHOWS US WHAT MY HERO ACADEMIA’S POPULAR HERO HAWKS WOULD LOOK LIKE IF IT APPEARED IN A CGI MOVIE
If there is one hero who has become quite popular in My Hero Academia, it is Hawks. Also known by his civilian name Keigo Takami, he stood out a lot at the end of Season 3 of the anime.
He alongside Endeavor he fought against one of the strongest nomu in the series. It was a tremendous battle, and if not for his help, things would have ended very badly. The animated recreation of this manga fight was really on another level.
HAWKS IS A PROFESSIONAL HERO WITH A LOT OF CHARISMA
Hawks is a pretty laid back and easy going character. Thanks to the feathers he can keep an eye on what is happening around him, and in some cases, protect people from any accident.
But when necessary he uses them as weapons, as if they were some kind of arrows. His Quirk is known as Stiff Wings, and consists of telekinetic control of each of his feathers. It’s a skill that he had to refine over time.
These same feathers allow you to fly in My Hero Academia. For all the aforementioned he is considered the second most important hero, while Endeavor is the first after the forced retirement of All Might.
Hawks is part of a new series of models created by Hannu Koskinen. He is the lead artist for Rovio Entertainment, creator of Angry Birds. This creative has been creating designs for the characters of this manga and anime for months.
MY HERO ACADEMIA CONTINUES TO MAINTAIN ITS POPULARITY
His models are reminiscent of employees in movies with computer-generated graphics. Regarding Hawks’ design of him, Koskinen commented ‘I had a lot of fun modeling him (as always), but his wings gave me the worst headache of 2020’.
Afterward, he added, ‘I tried various ways of modeling them using fur and fur plug-ins, but after several nights of testing I ended up doing them by hand.’ It sure took time to do them.
But it is only a sample of the dedication to his work. Regarding his work with Hawks from My Hero Academia, he stated, “It is also much easier to control the individual feathers when I start to manipulate it.”
He thanked the fans of his work for all the support they have given him over time. It seems that he plans to do a survey to find out what character he should work on next. We will be waiting.
