Anastasia 2D Rig

Character design and 2D animation rig for Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov, youngest daughter of the last Tsar of Imperial Russia, Nicholas II Romanov, in the early twentieth century.

Character Personality
Anastasia is a mischievous and energetic child who loves playing pranks and getting herself into trouble. At times she can even be short-tempered. She is less interested in appearances and feminine things than her older sisters and frequently pals around with her younger brother, Alexei.
She’s a big fan of storytelling, so she enjoys reading and attending the theatre. In fact, she’s a natural actress herself and performs for her family and friends. Perhaps one day she will become known for her acting abilities rather than just the youngest Grand Duchess.
