Once again hello, people of the New Grounds!
I've been putting aside writing an update post for a while now, but now I'm back with more news ~
Normally I would have made a post right after my new animation, "The Adventurer" had been published, but to be honest I wasn't really sure how people would take it, so I wanted to wait and see. As I wrote in the description of the video, it really was in my eyes the worst possible outcome. The animation was of course made for the NATA novice round with a 25 days time constraint, but I felt like the phasing and structure could have been done so much better. Therefor it hurt extra with the many repetitive comments about the low frame rate and animation choppiness. Because I knew it was true, and I regretted not being able to do more about it. I did get most of the exams and school stuff out of the way though, so that's nice.
So now, I wanted to wait posting till I knew this rounds NATA results.
I made it to the next round! Which is such a relief, because I was really hoping for a second chance. I ended up with a score of 88/100 points, which I am also very happy about.
So it's on to the pro round, the theme has already been announced, and it is "your own reflection" this time around. Now, I actually got an idea that I like for this already and I've gone ahead and picked music as well as making an animatic/storyboard/script/character design. Oooonly problem is that I didn't expect to make it this far, so I might have accidentally "forgotten" to bring along my pen for my pen tablet while I'm at my parent's house. I've gone ahead and bought a new one, but it'll be 3-7 days till it arrives. So that kind of sets me back a little. I'll just try to see what I can to about the preproduction. Speaking of preproduction, I am actually looking for voice actors for this project: One female medium-low teen, and an adult male with an excited, yet melancholic attitude. If you are a voice actor, or know someone who might fit and be able to deliver on short notice, feel very free to leave me a link to a demo reel. Otherwise I'll just be looking around a bit myself.
I believe that's all there is to say about NATA this time. I'd love to leave you with a teaser pic, but that would kind of spoil the gimmick ~
I recently uploaded a little animation to Youtube, that I haven't shown here on Newgrounds since it is unfinished. None the less, I decided to publish my Journey animation test, an animation that I made just after playing ThatGameCompany's Journey. I got so inspired that I just had to try interpreting the designs into my own style. This was made a few months ago, so it is actually my first attempt at this low frame-rated, clear-lined style that you've seen me use in both Blume as well as The Adventurer.
If you haven't already seen the collabs we NATA people have been doing between rounds, you have really been missing something! First we did the Sarcastic Bounce Collab, with lots of very... creative... bounces. Also we just did a Sarcastic Walk Collab. With people walking. And stuff. CHECK 'EM OUT!
I think I'll leave it at that for now. I'll see you all in a month when I've submitted my next tournament animation. *Well, not really "see". That'd be creepy.*
