Faustwolf! Yeah, baby! Dust that shit off. Get those creative juices flowing.

I have Final Draft as well. I'm still using 7.0, though, which at this point is probably a decade old.. and still fulfills all I need it to.

I'm working on that samurai story that I told you about offline. I've written about a 5-page treatment of the first two episodes (I envision it as a television series with 30 minute episodes, although the pilot is a two-parter), and now it's just writing out the script. I'm playing with the timeline a bit and only shows some scenes of the catalyst with the intention of revisiting the missing pieces in hypothetical future episodes.

Yeah baby!

TUSHANTIN! Your work on Ronin and the Legends of the Kodiaks is seriously awesome, dude! It's amazing to come back and see how much you've progressed as an animator over the years. And I can't help but love how the old guy is portrayed, 'cause old guys should rock. And in your capable hands, he rocks! As Boo said, you're epitomizing the Springtime of Youth here.

Haha thanks, man! It's good to see you again!


And since you invited non-Chrono works, I'll bite! This is a fantastic idea for an artistry-sharing thread. Your animation and Boo's mentioning screenplays inspired me to dust off a little ditty I did back in 2015: an adaptation of The Hollywood Standard screenplay format for a JRPG concept. I've just gotta figure out why the heck Final Draft is misbehaving on me...

DO IT! Lookin' forward!

Yeah baby!

You both being inspired now inspires me to finish up the script for my upcoming comic-book idea. Hah, I'll get to that pronto.

Thank you!



Wanted to keep this as a surprise till the end, but fuck it.

Since Boo and the others specially created an Animation category for the Dream Splash, I've started working on something that I had in mind since then. Going to approach this in the same fashion as I did Rona

Storyboard: https://youtu.be/fppq9ZJdoFY

Yeah, it sucks, I know. But I just wanted to quickly jot down exactly what I want to see in the animation and how it ought to be paced -- basically organizing the cuts so that I can actually complete this ambitious project.

After all, it's 19 Cuts / 2075 Frames long, and no money....

 :shock:

I should probably take short-cuts. Does anybody have a model of the Mammon Machine and the Masamune, so that I don't work harder than I have to? I'll also probably just have abstract paint-dabs as backgrounds.

EDIT:
For some odd reason, I'm still not happy about this...

EDIT 2: Should I keep Toriyama-style, or just do my own thang?

You know, even if you aren't able to finish by August, this storyboard video could be your entry and would work just fine. I just watched it and it's pretty rad! :D

Sorry, this isn't something I can help with. Hopefully someone else can, though.

I think either would be fine. Toriyama style is great, but I always seeing other's art interpretation styles.

Tushantin I loved the video! Do you have an example of your previous work? From what the others are saying you've come a long way. Would love to see a full on comparison of a then-and-now.

As for your storyboard, absolutely submit it raw to Dream Splash, why not? Looks like it has a lot of potential to turn into an awesome scene. What other kinds of mediums do you dab in? Your art is beyond anything I could fathom myself doing.

Thanks!

You can check some of my recent animation works heres. Wrapping up another 3D animation, but waiting for client payment in order to do so. I'm also sad because I have no more clients right now to work with, which mans no more money. :'(

Previously I used to mostly do art rather than animation. However, I DID do some little animated avatars for people.

That said, my art wasn't really that good back then, despite the cool ideas in my head. For example, here's some old ones:
1) Crimson Echoes wallpaper: https://tushantin.deviantart.com/art/Crimson-Echoes-Wallpaper-158565513
2) Kid, from Radical Dreamers: https://tushantin.deviantart.com/art/Radical-Dreamers-Kid-138537170
3) Glenn (Human Frog): https://tushantin.deviantart.com/art/In-memory-of-Glenn-98849511
4) Magus (redesigned): https://tushantin.deviantart.com/art/King-of-Demons-Magus-94714358
5) Magil (Radical Dreamers): https://tushantin.deviantart.com/art/Magil-of-the-Shadows-88160110
6) Pollon (Radical Dreamers): https://www.chronocompendium.com/Forums/index.php?topic=9949.0

I've SIGNIFICANTLY improved since then, especially considering the fact I want to turn this as my full-time job (which I haven't been very successful at doing). I've gotten better at colors, proportions, anatomy, etc.

So now I can draw something like this: https://www.facebook.com/cyanlos/photos/a.710388545799650.1073741829.230368313801678/1886797031492123/

Anywho, here's a direct comparison --

When I started the Chrono Tarot project (before disappearing due to life taking over), my art used to look like this: https://www.chronocompendium.com/Forums/index.php?topic=9625.msg213097#msg213097

After a lot of hard-work and learning, now that I'm back, this was what I submitted as my first "proper" Chrono Tarot design: https://www.chronocompendium.com/Forums/index.php?topic=9632.msg226799#msg226799

Hope that helps.  8)

You can definitely notice the evolution and improvement, nice work. I hope your dream of making it your full time job comes to fruition. It looks like you've gotten yourself set up properly to make it happen, just keep at it. I know anyone that I've known who has went for their desired field has had to overcome nothing but obstacles along the way. Seems to be the way it is.

Just curious what are your preferred graphics programs? Anything out of the ordinary? (ex not photoshop or adobe)

Just free and opensource software, like Ubuntu operating system (a Linux distro), Synfig and OpenToonz (for animation), Krita (for painting), Natron (for Compositing), Blender (for 3D), etc. All of them are Free (as in beer) and Free (as in Freedom).

I always wanted to work with extraordinary software (and still do) because I'm a tinkerer at heart and absolutely love technology (heck, those very old and bad artworks, like Magus, was made in Photoshop that was supplied with my really old system). But ever since I switched from Windows to Linux, I've seldom looked back. In fact, I haven't used a Windows system for the last 3 years now! And I absolutely don't regret moving.

Although, I wouldn't mind paying for sofware (if I get high-paying clients to work with for efficiency) if they release stuff like, say, Cacani, Toonboom or Affinity Designer for Linux.  8)

Yeah, that looks great, tushantin! Is she an original character?
