Hi everyone, how have you been? 1st of all: I'M NOT DEATH XD, 2nd: sorry if I haven't uploaded nothing at all for a goooooood amount of time, even if I said I would at the beginning of the year
Well, 1st things first, some people had message me asking me why I haven't uploaded anything new in a while, well, I don't remember if I posted about this early this year, probably I did but honestly I can't remember, well, It's because at the begging of the year (more exactly around February) I got a job in a little animation studio, and technically that's where I've been all this time....that's it, good night XP
No seriously, something that I been saying a LOT this year when people ask me "why you aren't in DA as often as before?" or when my friends ask me "why you haven't logged in Facebook! I tagged you in a billion photos you lazy..." is technically this: "I didn't expected this year to be so demanding...", and good lord it's still being demanding!
But why you may ask?, well, at the beginning (and that's technically the 1st half of the year) our work schedule was only 4 hours, it was quite nice because that way we could focus not only on the job but also on school (keep in mind, all the members of the team are still students including me, college students to be precise, we're all almost finishing college that's why our school projects are getting harder and harder every year, needless to say it's a PAIN XD, but it's still ok, I mean it's nothing we couldn't do), on summer vacations our work schedule went from 4 hour to 6 hour, but considering that we were on vacation it was still ok....when it stopped being "ok" was at the beginning of this last half of the year, you see, the movie we're working on needed to be finished before the end of July, so we all worked as hard as we could to finish it, I don't want to brag about it but I was the 1st one to finish with my part of the project, you see, all the members of the team had 1 or 2 characters assigned for them to draw, and considering that at that time I only had 1 (and later 5) it was a breeze, but for some reason or another the rest of the team couldn't finish on time, so, the boss managed to extend the deadline of the project, and that's were our work schedule went from 6 hour to 12!, now our new deadline was November 1st, after hours and hours of masochistic fun XP we were almost reaching that new deadline again with the project ALMOST done....but not quite, some important things still needed to be painted like the backgrounds and some characters, so, feeling the pressure, we decided to stay all day and night to finish the project on time that last weekend, but we needed the boss's authorization to do such a thing (otherwise they would kicked us out of the office), we waited and waited but we never received any sort of answer from the boss because he was in an important meeting that day, so, we all decided to go home and see what would happens on Monday, so, that Monday our boss said that our new deadline was now December 20 because....I'm not really sure, but it's mostly because other important events are going on in the place we're working on (festivals and such because we're celebrating an anniversary or something, so, a lot of events are programmed before our movie 1st screening)
It's been hard yes, but it feels so rewarding to see that our project is almost finally done, and it feels great to actually ask our team mates if they need help or something because now we had little to do, I got to say I f#cking love my work.....even if it is masochistic as f#ck XD
Well that was technically the story of my life....or at least the story of this year XP, but wait, you also want to know if I did something sprite related this year?, well, as I said I had little to no time to actually do thing after work (and honestly, after 12 hour in front of the screen the last thing I want to see at home is another screen XD), but I DID something sprite related, and I think you're going to like it (or at least, I hope so): img62.imageshack.us/img62/4477…
What you see there is just a small portion of what I already had, I didn't wanted to include all the frames of those animations now because some frames still need shading and other are...incomplete in one way or another...and for some reason I forget to include the running animation....but I will upload it as an animated gif later
Anyway, I think that's all for now, again, sorry if I wasn't as active this year compared to other years, if you had any questions you can write a comment and I will be glad to answer ti as soon as possible, well, take care
