About this project
NEW ART ADDED:
Hi! My name is Ross Tran and welcome to World of Nima! I’m a digital illustrator for the Entertainment Industry and I’ve been producing videos for my YouTube channel RossDraws for almost two years.
Nima is my original character whose story and world I've been developing for the last 4 years. Nima is a combination of all my childhood influences and inspirations and I want to inject every bit of life from the grand adventures I experienced as a kid into my own personal world.
Nima’s story takes place in a world with hauntingly beautiful and vibrant locations. I want Nima’s world to excite people the way I was drawn into the world of Avatar the Last Airbender. I draw a lot of inspiration from anime like Full Metal Alchemist, fighting games like Super Smash Bros., and movies like Spirited Away. Nima’s world will take you through an expansive and magical journey with a dynamic cast of companions, travelers, and enemies. This book will show my vision from start to finish, depicting this vivid world with scribbles, sketches, key scenes and cinematic paintings.
Every page will be crafted with care with a mixture of Typography, Layout, Graphic Design and Digital Illustrations.
The book is the first step into introducing Nima to the world.
Shipping will be handled through the Pledge Manager! Please enter a 'safe' address to have the book and rewards sent to since the Development of the book can take some time. If you do change your information the time it's shipped, please leave a forwarding address with your local post office. I frequently will be updating you on the process and completion of the book, so incase you break up with your girlfriend or boyfriend, you still have time to change your address and get the book safely :)

Thank you so much for your support! It's my dream to bring Nima's adventure and world to life. With your help, I can take my first step on this journey and I can't wait to bring you along!
Risks and challenges
This is my first book so there will be challenges in my way, but I'm highly prepared to develop my own project and bring it to life. I graduated from Art Center College of Design, known as one of the hardest working schools in existence.
Note that there could be unexpected challenges and factors that affect the delivery date of the book such as weather, politics, and convention dates. If anything arises, you'll be the first to know.
I'll be sure to have great communication with publishing, printing, shipping and you, my supporters, to make sure things go smoothly. I'm based in the US so less risk is involved through distribution. I can't wait for you to see the book!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
