First up the BAA comp. The good news is I've finally finished the character turnarounds for the newer characters...
Al Sheeprina (Al Pasheepo's wife)
Werelvis, the King of Wolves...
And disgustingly obese slob!
Maiyundonna the Queen of Wolves.
To hurry things up I decided not to colour in the turnarounds this time in order to save time because truthfully I really do need to get cracking! Must finish the Storyboards ASAP and begin animating now! My next Blog update for BAA should be the actual animation tests this time so watch this space...
Now onto the news regarding GANTO:Renaissance. I've discovered another competition regarding this, the prize being an opportunity to create a Stop-Motion short and meeting one of the legendary animators Ray Harryhausen. But wait what has this got to do with GANTO:Renaissance? Well since I'm aiming to make it into a Stop-Motion film I figured this would be a great time start making a Teaser Trailer for it which will feature Jonathan, the loveable, fat-arsed, free spirited Clown!
There he is! :D
Awwwwww bless! Who doesn't love Jonathan?
This should be able to help me to get more people interested in this project since afterall, it's the publicity which is really needed. Plus it'll also give me a good chance to start practicing with this medium. The only thing I need to do to enter is to create a Storyboard for this and that's it! Both BAA and this latest comps' Deadlines are in Feb and since Storyboards are very easy things to do, BAA takes my main priority due to the animation requirements and fast! Don't worry I'm still entering the Ray Harryhausen comp (I'd have to be dumb not to). While we're on the subject of GANTO:Renaissance I still haven't asked my former Classmates for help yet. :( Really do need to build up the courage to ask them.
And before I bring this Blog to a close I've started feeling a little down again which is why I'm Re-Posting this as a reminder to myself to NOT give up and carry on with my dreams.
Well, that's all for now folks and until next time...
See ya later Navigators! :D
