* will need further rig tweaks and morph corrects to get his muscles looking goooooood
When the rewards will be out:
I'll need next weekend to add more content, so the rewards will probably be sent out on the 7th or 8th. I'll keep people posted if this changes.
My Little Kaiju:
I spent the first week of the month on this and have added another 2.5 seconds of polished animation. I plan on spending the last week on it too, so hopefully I can get another 2.5-5 seconds done as well.
Dragon Growth Animation:
I spent a greater % of time on this than I initially thought, but it's been a lot of fun to get back into ^^. I've unfortunately had to spend a couple of days this month working on the rig, which has eaten a little into my animation time, but there is still plenty of new stuff to show.
Asd to that new stuff however, I'm actually going to change the way I construct and deliver the WIPS, so please read.
Instead of making each shot from scratch to polish and render like I have been, I've been blocking out a number of shots but not polishing them up as much. I'm going to include them in the WIP video, so the quality is going to vary from polished to kind of polished to blocked out to staged.
This is for three main reasons;
1. So that I have a number of scenes ready to pass on to an animator whenever one can help out, like what has happened this month.
2. So that I can solidify how many shots/work are left, as well as ensure there's a good progression since I don't have storyboards
3. So that you guys can gauge where the animation is at better, rather than me simply adding seemingly unending shots.
There will still be shots missing of course, and will be for a while; but I will be clearly labeling the action that is going to happen in the shot. The progression of part 1A is solid, and although there can and probably will be minor changes, I'm going to lay down the shot lists.
That isn't to say that I won't be polishing animations; I've done that for a couple of shots this month. But I will be mixing my time up between polishing and blocking; depending on what I need and what my mood is on a given day.
So yeah; I may or may not have some new rendered shots; I'll be working on it this weekend so I'll know more then I guess.
They have been made, and were shipped today, and should be here on Saturday! I'm gonna order some packages tonight and do a test post run with some people, and then work out how much its all gonna cost to ship. I'll share a picture of one with you once they arrive! Very excite XD
Thanks everyone for your amazing support <3. And please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
