Holy Cabbage! That year flew by!! Happy New Year! Let’s summarize 2019. I got my foot into the animation industry working as a rigger on a 2D animated kids series (series one out on Netflix right now), I got some illustration done, I moved house and I got some work done on my upcoming animation. Not a bad year but this year I really would like to get a little more done.
Regarding this ‘upcoming animation’ that I be working on, I have managed to get all the voices done for the dialogue. There are TEN characters all voiced by either me, or friends and family. I made some big changes to the script last year too. Writing isn’t my biggest strength so I have been improving the script and I am now happy with where it’s at and have started the animatic! Woohoo! With 2020 also brings a facelift to the characters. This is now the THIRD iteration of them. This kind of came naturally as I have been improving my illustration and rigging skills and I’m fudging happy with them. Take a sneaky peaky!
This is a rough draft so there will still be some slight changes but you get the idea. These are not all of the characters though as they still need to be given a face lift. I’ll be revealing more throughout the year.
Another resolution of mine is to post more on my youtube channel and stream again on Twitch. I uploaded a video to my channel today, reviewing my huion display tablet that I got last year. I always wanted one and could never afford those expensive Wacom Cintiques! A great alternative indeed. Check out the review here!
This display tablet has been out for a while so there are a butt load of reviews but it’s content and I’ve had it for over a year this video may differ from the others who knows.
Oh I almost forgot. My online shops are set up. Here are the links:
I’ve got very little sales but will keep working at it.
Oh cripes I also forgot. I did another art challenge in work. Here is the illustration. I didn’t spend as much time on it as I normaly would, being busy with Christmas and that.
Plans for this year? Crack on with my animation, keep exercising, keep drawing, stream more, keep being kind and other stuuuufff. Peace be with you, BAI.
