WIP Update – 08 Dec 13

I made a little more progress on Daphne’s Chapter 4 and Kazuya has some rough renders from the animation project that I plan on posting to Youtube tomorrow. We’re going to take the opportunity to take stock in where we’re at and where we want to go from here. Unsurprisingly, a mostly one-man animation project is rather daunting. There’s a lot to learn and what I’m going to show may ultimately prove to be a stepping stone toward the final form the project takes. We’ll see.

WIP Update – 24 Nov 13

A little more minor progress on Daphne’s Chapter 4 of TTWC1.

The bigger accomplishment for the day was giving shot-by-shot instructions to Kazuya for the animation project. What we’ll be able to show by the end of the year will pretty much amount to an animatic, but still it’s not a bad piece of work for one overburdened salaryman doing most of the heavy lifting.

WIP Update – 10 Nov 13

I’ve pretty well finished Chapter 21 and made a little more progress on Chapter 22 as well. Need to be thinking about reviewing Chapter 20 for the update. Maybe I should go ahead and have my little post on EU politics prepared so we can hit the ground running Wednesday. We’ll see.

In other news, Kazuya’s making good progress on the character models for the animation project. Once he puts faces on them, I might give you a little preview. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – Preview of Rowan


This is a different kind of WIP update. I’ve been meaning to show you some of the early renders from the KoG animation project Kazuya’s working on and here’s a nice early show of Rowan. There aren’t any textures or cel shading yet and the lighting still needs to be fiddled with.

To reduce the man-hours devoted the task, to say nothing of render time, I may suggest that he leave it at this level of detail at this stage. This is our first animation, after all, and with our current computing power, we really can’t afford to be too elaborate.

I’m hoping to get prototype renders of the main cast by the end of next week. Stay tuned.
