"Short Animation" is in the title for a reason, since it pretty accurately sums up the contents. This isn't the big project with Celestia and Luna I briefly touched on in the last blog; it's more just testing out my new puppets and giving you lot a chance to check them out in action. Although the cogs are in motion, it's going to be a good amount of time before you see anything out of me involving Celestia and Luna, but never fear: with some new builds and some new practices, I'm confident in my ability to put out some short animations while I work on the bigger project. They'll all be pretty simple, but hopefully them and whatever static art I get around to producing will be enough to tide everyone over.
I'd like these shorts to be pretty experimental in nature: short ideas that don't necessarily have to tell a story, but that provide interesting visuals and chances to work some animation wizardry. I'm more than open to suggestions if anyone here thinks of anything. While they may slow down progress on bigger projects just a bit, I think the payoff is worth it, since I don't want to keep you guys waiting months on end for me to produce something like with Take a Bow.
