Q: Is Swordmaster Odyssey dead?
Heavens no! It will probably be a few more weeks before I get back to it, though. Right now my focus is on getting the initial in-game art for AetherFall together, which is no small feat. Once I get a hold on the style I want, and get into the groove of producing it, things should lighten up quite a bit on that end.
Q: Is Sketchbook Monday dead?
No, I just keep putting it off. 🙁
Q: Is My Brother dead?
No, my brother is still alive and well
unfortunately, and so is My Brother. However, there likely won’t be any work on it until next year. The project has not been canceled, just delayed in favor of AetherFall.
Q: Is Procyon dead.
Yes. As explained before, the project was axed due to major story problems, made even worse by a horde of technical problems. 🙁
The Flash video player used on the My Brother website isn’t playing the animated clips at the right FPS in Internet Explorer. I’m trying to find a way to fix it/get around it/something.
Hooray world wide web for never working! -_-
Here’s the very first screen grab from the very first piece of completed animation in “My Brother“. It’s hardly the best animation in the world, but I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out, all things considered. Note that although the animation itself is complete, the color isn’t. The background may get some tweaks, and the kid’s colors will likely change considerably.
Stay turned—You’ll get to watch this shot in motion soon!
Here’s some simple concept art for the kid in My Brother. Each color is on a seperate layer, so I can tweak them individually and see what works best.
We’ve finally gotten underway on an animated project! About time, I suppose… :/
