Have a good'n!

Christmas


Posted by Kreid - December 19th, 2012


I've not been updating my journal much as of late, mainly because I've had so much damn work on the go at once, so I'm writing this entry to explain where I am with everything, here goes!

ROYAL ARMOURIES PROJECT
Status: ONGOING
Completion ~75%

My roles in this project include animation director, as well as animating all of the characters, you can check out some samples here.
I've only got a handful left, then Ill be doing all the state transition animations and organizing the rest of the team as far as the animation side of things goes.

ODDBALL
Status: ONGOING

The big one. I'm not gonna lie here, I've had little time to work on Oddball, but some projects are coming to a close now so there'll be time once again. My current tasks include finishing the two ongoing episodes (Barrels and Chapter 3) as well as writing the rest of the show. I've also had some changes to the art style, so I need to familiarize myself with that before I animate again!

CRUSADERS
Status: ON HOLD
Completion ~5%

More info here
Project should be back online in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out!

NBR COMMISSION
Status: ONGOING
Completion ~80%

I'm on the last clips for this job, then I just have to go over the whole project doing tidying up, as well as making any tweaks the client may have. The animation is symbol based, so this won't take quite as long!

PROJECT "VAMPIRE PIXEL"
Status: ON HOLD

I'm considering leaving this project in development until I'm done with Oddball, there may be a few loose clips and comics in the meantime, but I do want to continue with it at some point, it just doesn't feel complete to me yet, and I know from experience that having a full understanding of a project is crucial.

CHRISTMAS SPECIAL 2012
Status: CANCELLED

Due to time problems, I'm releasing this special next year instead.

Also, I'm raising my commission prices soon, so get in there before I do!

Finally conquering work mountain, back to my own work soon!


Posted by Kreid - November 27th, 2012


Wow, workload has got a bit hectic, but I should have videos to release soon! Here's a quick list of what you can expect within the next few months:

Oddball: Barrels
A side episode to get back into the animation style for Oddball.

Royal Armouries: Moustache Helmet
My first University animation of the year is coming to a close.

Nick Basile Radio
A commissioned project I'm working on at the moment should hopefully be done soon.

Solrac Ventures
More episodes of a project I'm working on with Solrac/Yaplap should be out in the coming months too!

Oddball 3.5
A plot filler episode for Oddball that will set up the second act of the story. I'm expecting the entirity of Oddball to end in 2014, at 8 chapters.

Oddball 3.5-8 "poster" + release plans


Posted by Kreid - November 7th, 2012


I think I work a lot better when I'm working to schedule, so here's something I'm going to try out.

Monday: Crusaders + Solrac Ventures
Tuesday: Royal Armouries commisson (University animation)
Wednesday: Oddball + Emergency catch up if needed.
Thursday: Study day, blog entries, research, essays, etc.
Friday: Nick Basile Radio commission + Vampire Pixel development
Saturday: Break day
Sunday: Nick Basile Radio commission + misc work/ catchup

Schedule

Crap, I haven't blogged at all this week, luckily there's still stuff I can yammer on about outside of that!

UPCOMING ANIMATIONS
I'm finally out of the creative block, so I can now list the animations I'm (back to) working on:
My stuff
Oddball: Barrels
I've been out of Oddball for a while, so I really need to work on a side episode to get used to the style again. My animation style has changed somewhat over the past month so I need to see how I can mix this in with my old techniques. I'm doing it on a side episode rather than cock up the fourth chapter.
"Vampire Pixel" promo
A promo for a new series I'm starting in 2013. Now that I've capped Oddball at eight episodes (canon) I'm thinking about the show that I'll work on after it's done. I'm wanting to get a promo out for now so people can think about it. You can also audition for the characters here
Other stuff/ commissions
Royal Armouries Project
This project is for University, it's still in the hands of the producer, but I'll be taking up my role as lead animator pretty soon so I'll be hard at work for that, deadline is around Christmas.
Solrac Ventures
I'm working on a show for Yaplap that he'll be premiering at Equestria LA on November 3rd.
Nick Basile Radio
I have commission information on my Deviant Art, and this is the current one I'm working on, you can find some shows on itunes Once Solrac is finished, this one takes priority as it's the only paid one out of these, and I'm a broke ass student.

DONATIONS
As I said above, I'm pretty broke at the moment. I didn't just want to resort to asking for money to help fund my videos, so I've come up with something I wanna try out. I'm thinking of doing something similar to kickstarter, where you donate x amount and get a reward, like a cameo or billboard advertisement in an animation. I asked on Deviant Art and the idea seemed to go well, so I may have a trial soon to see how it goes. This way I'm not just outright asking for money, it's totally voluntary and I at least give something back.

Also, I'm back on Tumblr, if that's important. This time I'm focusing on just posting my art work, rather than reblogging tonnes of Pokemon gifs like my last account.

I think that's it for this week, so I'll leave you with the question of the week:
QOTW: What would you like to see next, Oddball or the Vampire Pixel promo?

I'm thinking of summing up my blog entries each week on here, as well as posting any other news.
First up, the blog;

BLOG

Drawing
I left off last year at the drawing class post, if you missed that, it's here. I'll soon be updating with the next drawing class where we visited the Royal Armouries and did some observed sketches.

Background designs
This week I've been focusing on my new show I'm developing, now that the character designs are taking shape, I started working on the backgrounds, I've gone for a vibrant, neon style city to completely clash with my work on Oddball, you can read the post on that here.

The Kangaroo
Also, a while back, we had a REALLY crappy group project that was for a third year, I forgot to write a blog entry about that, but if you want to see possibly the worst graduate animation ever, click here for a lovely rant.

Character maps
Going back to the new ideas, I've created a set of "character maps" showing their interests and such, I did a quick writeup here and there's a run cycle test here

Uni work
Finally, there's the first part of my Armouries project written up here

UPCOMING

I think I'm going to be opening auditions for the new trio pretty soon, I'm still deciding on three names that go well together at the moment, but I may just leave the name out of the character info for the time being. If you haven't already found the hub for my voice auditions, keep an eye on this link

I think that about sums up this week, hopefully people are ok with the new format, the blog is for University so I have to write about my progress, I figured why not keep people updated through that!

Talk to ya next week!

**UPDATE**
New voice roles can be found here
