We hope that these two lovely characters with similar personalities will be able to show a new appeal to many people by being selected as the second collaboration characters of Tencent and Kakao.1) 角色个性 | Character personality 策划阶段，我们分析了两个角色的共同特点。他们都很萌很可爱且极具好奇心，根据这些特点，我们进行了在线表情包的设计。At the planning stage, we organized the common characteristics of the two characters. These two characters are cute, lovely, and curious which we proceeded the online sticker design based on these characteristics.考虑到PUPU 和 Apeach 特别受年轻人的喜欢，我们采用了当今的主要趋势之一 — “复古”这个概念，并通过将时尚和复古元素应用到表情包的道具和背景上加以呈现。Considering that PUPU and Apeach are loved especially by young people, we applied the concept of ‘Retro’ which is one of the major trend thesedays. We applied trendy and retro elements in the props and background of the online stickers to express the concept.
3) 角色形状与表情 | Character Shape & Expression Apeach是一个可以通过面部表情来表达情绪的角色。正面和负面表情都可以体现它可爱而幽默的魅力。我们试着通过表情包设计来表现Apeach这些形色各异的可爱的表情。Apeach is a character that can express emotions through various facial expressions. Not only positive but also negative facial expressions can express Apeach’s cute and humorous charm. We tried to express these various cute facial expressions of Apeach through the online sticker design.虽然PUPU和Apeach的身体形状都是圆的，但Apeach有一个大脑袋和光滑的身体，胳膊和腿都很长，而PUPU 的身体是圆柱形的，四肢很短。尽管两者的身体比例有所不同，但当将他们放到一起时，我们试图找到一种平衡。此外，在动作表达上，我们也试图突显每个角色的魅力。
Although PUPU and Apeach both has a rounded body shape, Apeach has a large head and a sleek body with long arms and legs, while PUPU has a cylindrical bulky body shape with short limbs. We tried to ﬁnd a balance of the two characters when shown together despite the difference of their body ratio. Also, when expressing the movement, we tried to emphasize the charms of each character.

The idea sketch and a draft animation were done based on 16 keywords. We designed it according to each keyword and also applied the retro concept so that the playful personality of the two characters can appear well in the animation.因为容量问题，3D表情包在表达上有许多限制，所以这套表情包是通过将动画的帧速率降到15fps来制作的。因为是以低帧速率制作的，所以动画的制作重点是更清晰地表达角色的姿势。3D online sticker has many restrictions on expression due to the capacity limit, so this online sticker was produced by lowering the animation's frame rate to 15fps. Since it was made with low frame rate, the animation was done focusing on expressing the pose of the characters more clearly.3) 成分（颜色）| Composition (color) 我们统一了配色方案，同时应用了可以传达复古感觉的颜色，并使用Apeach的桃红色和PUPU的黑色，白色和金色作为基本色。We uniﬁed the color scheme while applying colors that can convey a retro feeling and used Apeach’s peach color and PUPU’s black, white, and gold as basic colors.通过PUPU x Apeach的3D表情包，我们希望两家公司的代表角色在保持个性的同时，可以传达一种新的愉悦感，大家在使用这套表情包时也能对PUPU和Apeach 感到更加地熟悉和更有亲近感。
