Heya. It's been some time since my last update.
Lost of things happening with projects (and life) recently, and it's been rough, honestly, though I make sure to keep my head up for the future. Relating to animated projects as a whole, it's going pretty swiftly, but I'm starting to think that I may be biting off more than I can chew. Not sure how/why I decided to take up 4 animated projects projects at once, but here I am, hah. It's gotta get done somehow, as long as I'm not stressing myself out too much! Regardless of the amount of work, I hope to continue with story narratives and side projects.
In other news I figure I get some updates to you folks on Chaotic Heart!
Upcoming Episode: Episode 3 - Loose Ends
Release Date: TBA
After a bit of time recollecting on my animation style, and critiques on the recent episode of Chaotic Heart (thanks a bunch), I feel like a step towards a more "sakuga"-ish style would be best. It is roughly 1.5 times the work in comparison to before, however I've started to find ways to not take shortcuts and "actually" animate for a change, lol. Kind of what I did in Episode 1! Still working on the keyframes and cel animations, though this project has been my main focus as of late. I feel that writing wise, it will be a bit more enjoyable (and bearable), hopefully. Lots of new faces + VAs are going to make an appearance!
Also, I've been starting to reveal the VA's recently for the project! (Starting with Sophia)
If all things go smoothly, I'm expecting it to be one of the longest animated episodes I'll make to date. I don't expect it to take a long time to finish, but I have to make sure I don't burn out as a result. Stuff like this could cause that, but I feel confident about time management.
Welp, that's essentially it for now! Don't worry, I'm gradually working on both Beyond the Fog and Solace, and I'll likely get to updating them soon-ish. Honestly, I'm surprised that I even got to this point with these animated projects. My sort of goal for the long term is to create a lot of varied stories for who knows how long. Anyways, enough of this bi-guy talking about nonsense, lol. I'll get back to getting this episode done!
Have a good one guys!
