Work in Progress

Hi folks, how are you?

I am a bit late today, but we are still on monday so let’s assume I am on time haha.
This week, I am showing the last steps before scene 3 can actually begin.

Please take a look at those 3 pics, I’ll explain after:

Alright, let’s explain a bit.

At this step, the new version of Gaya is skinned and rigged, which means that she can move, whereas Goroouji (her father) is still in a T-pose and has yet to be skinned and rigged. But before that I need to finish his modeling.
Many things left to do but don’t worry I’m on the case!

So, that’s it for today, thanks for watching, have a nice week and see you next monday.

StoryBoard (Scene 0003)

Hi folks, how are you?

I realised that I haven’t uploaded the next part of the storyboard yet.
In this page, we will enter scene number 3.
But let’s have a look:

bb_story_board_v3b

So, as you noticed, part of it is already done.
(For those who want to see preview videos, don’t miss the animation galerie here)
Anyway, I can’t wait to start scene three,
because Gaya and her father are going to show off for the first time in history *A*)!!
Finally some action.
For those of you who follow this making of for a certain time,
you will see the evolution from the test on Gaya’s kick I created a few months ago,
and the actual “awesome flying kick” she’s gonna perform for you guys^^
(Notice that the cameras are probably going to change, this board is more a guide than a real storyboard.)
By the way, scene two is over as I am writing those lines.
I changed the last plans but we’ll talk about it next week so stay tuned ^_-)

That’s it for today folks! Thanks for watching and see you next monday!!

Day Off

Hi folks, how are you?

Just a little message to tell you that I will not be able to post on monday as usual, but be ready because I’ve prepared something fun for tuesday.
One word as a hint: Sakuga! (作画)

See you on monday!! *A*)

OST first preview!

Hi folks, how are you?

Last week’s hint was “Sound”.
So today I decided to let you hear some music which are going to accompany my anime.
The sound are original but still in the making.
Let’s hear it!!

I’ve always loved to make music, and that’s the reason why for now, I plan on making the complete OST myself but,
I’ve never took any lesson so if you know anybody who wants to give it a try, let me know in the comments.
Anyway I want to thank my friend Lord Maxouel for the making of the Opening song.
The final instrumental version should be ready in a few month.
Still waiting to find a singer though, so same thing don’t hesitate! ^^)v
That’s it for today, thanks for watching and see you next week!

StoryBoard Scene 0002 Cut 01 to 09

Hi folks, how are you?

This week we move on to the second scene (which is the first one coming after the opening).
Who said I hate storyboarding again?! Don’t remember but this person might be right (haha…)
Anyway, this is not the funiest part for me but since it’s a making of, I had to let you see a bit.

Here it goes!

Yeah I know, this is a bit hard to understand. But that’s clear for me, and as I said before,
at this step, if I’m not getting lost with my storyboard, then you don’t have to worry about a thing ^_-) v

I guess we’re done for this week.
Next week’s hint: Sound!
Thank you for watching!!

FX test 001

Hi folks how are you?

Today we are having a look over special effects.
This is a 2D teleportation effect. I’m thinking of making it 3D so I’d be able to use it from any point of view.

Let’s take a look at it!

So? Looking forward for version 2? ^^

Ok, someone asked me why the character’s age looked so different in the recents posts. Here come the explanation.
Since the beginning of the project I kept showing a younger aspect of my character and I think this is just about time to tell you that this story is going to cover almost all their life, and right now on this site, I’m trying to show a much larger range of possibilities that I’d be able to If I were to follow the chronological order of the story.
This might have been obvious for most of you, but I just wanted to make it sure.

Alright folks, we’re going to call it a day.
Thanks for reading and see you next week!

Production Begins!

Hi folks how are you?

I told you last week that today’s news would be a great one,
and so I hope you’ll be happy to know that production has officialy begun!

Well I didn’t actualy finished the pre-production in terms that I haven’t finished all the 3d characters and backgrounds but I deceided to make them once they’re needed to appear in a scene.
Since it’s 3D, adding details afterwards isn’t a problem.

Anyway I prepared a little video for you guys of a work in progress, and just because I like you, some pics are following.

Have a look!

How was it guys?
The video you just saw contains almost all the elements that will be inside the final piece. But as you saw in the pictures coming after, I intend to add some more details in order to refine the shapes and to finish the scene. And that’s what is great about using 3D, I can add details even on the final day of the production. All it takes is a new render.

Thanks for reading and see you next week!!
