Sorry this weekly update took a while to get out to ya. I wanted to get this out to y'all earlier today, but somethings came up that I needed to take care of and it took a whole lot longer than I expected. Anyways, I've been knee deep in animating stuff, trying to get things wrapped up for November. But there's been a few complications so I want to go over everything with you all and let you know what the plan will be going forwards.
Mythra's NNN part 2 is going well, but it's still needs some time and love to get it over the line. All these parts are a lot longer than Pyra's parts, so they are going to take a bit longer than I had intended, but I think it will be worth it in the long run. I have the bones of the animation done, so I'll make an animation sneak peek post for $5 and up patrons so you can check out how things are going. Part 2 still has some loops that need to be done for the 2nd part of the animation, but I'm hoping to finish it in another week or two.
However, since we're close to the end of November, I want to focus on getting the voiced version of Pyra out so you all have something for NNN this year. After that, I'll just keep working on Mythra until it's finished.
Pyra's NNN complete:
I'm going to shift focus on getting the Pyra's NNN movie complete before the end of the month. I have all the voice files I need from my VA Pixie Willow, the music I need, and SFX so now I just need to put everything together and clean up the animation as needed.
I also spent a big portion of this week working on the after credits bonus scene, getting the bones of it done as well as a lot of the smaller secondary animations. The animation is meant to represent a sort of "dream" experience that involves multiple Pyras so a lot of animation is involved. Originally I wanted it to be sort of a "quick" animation since I didn't want it to take long, so I was going to have it be just a quick loop taken from part 4 with a few art stills on the side. But then I thought it'd look better if they moved a bit, then I started animating the hair, and then parts of the body, and then decided to fully animate one of them and long story short I'm tired xD I also decided to give it a proper climax too, but I didn't want it to just be the one from part 4, so I spent some time making a new simple one. I wanted to get the bones of it done before Tuesday since that's the day I had a VA session booked with Pixie Willow, and I wanted to make sure she had the animation to see so it'd be easier to dub. Unfortunately that meant pulling an all-nighter which has left me pretty exhausted. But I managed to get it in a decent state, so that will be in the same post as Mythra for this week. It's still a work in progress and there's a lot of animating that still needs to be done, but it'll give you an idea of how it'll look.
Since I focused on those two animations so much this week, I don't have much to show for the showcase this week. But I started playing Breath of Fire 2 on my Switch a while back and wanted to do a small animation featuring Katt, so I'll post the wip pic of it for this week as a small bonus.
Anyways I just wanted to thank you all so much for all the support recently. It means a lot to me and helps keep me motivated to make cool things for you all!
That's it for now. Stay safe and have a great week!
