Keinon is a project from Vin Naso of Tendril. The Rio born artist now lives in Toronto and works on short films and opening sequences for brands like Nike and Coors.
This, though, is a passion project. Check it out.
Keinon is a homage to game cinematics and a teaser for a potential story. Keinon is an orphan raised by a Ronin, and he fights an ancestral curse.
Hundreds of years ago, Keinon’s ancestor King Aram struck a deal with a demon. In exchange for control of the Empire, all of Aram’s descendants would be given to the demon. And so, once Aram’s descendants are of the right age, they begin to transform. It’s happening to Keinion too, his arms are demonic, and now it’s a fight against time to defeat King Aram’s demon army.
