Heartbreaker's a wrap, finally. Pleased with how it turned out, but there was a lot that went wrong. There was a lot of frustration in finding voice actors, which forced me to delay a lot of the animation, and that showed in a few areas where it didn't come out as well as I had intended. I also don't like the way everything was set at only three different angles, though I did finally have a chance to get over my reluctance to use frame-by-frame animation, and that was certainly for the better.
That said, don't expect any sort of idea drought this go-around. Fifths, DeadParrot and I are putting the finished touches on an all-new, original script, which will let me flex my non-existant animator muscles with a lot more dynamic camera angles, heavier focus on narrative and dialogue, backgrounds and lighting, and just more fun with the characters in general. I have no intention to reveal very much as of yet, but my schoolwork has lessened in volume and summer approaches, which means animation is on the horizon.
In other news, once I get the time, I think I'm going to go through and condense all of those old journals. Ever since deviantArt started counting them as deviations (why.jpg) I've felt really bad that they fudge my total deviation count. I'll do my best to remove some of them to get a more accurate count, and I'll probably throw some of my older static stuff into the scrapbook, focusing more on the animations. All the art will be there, but I want moving pictures to be at the forefront. Capisce?
You might also be pleased to know that I have actually finished the majority of the storyboarding for my upcoming pony literature, and have started writing the first chapter. After approximately one million drafts and rewrites, I finally feel secure enough in the plot and such, which is finally more resemblant of an Indiana Jones film than James Bond. That's how it oughtta be.
