Steady Progress

I gotta admit, ever since I pit these two against each other, i've been nothing but pleased. I think Cyclops and Reiko are going to develop a good rivalry in the flashes to come, seeing as how they are kinda the ambassadors of their respective relms. Cyclops has a freakish amount of sprites and Reiko looks cool and has the finess of Mortal Kombat. I know I do updates more frequently than most animators. Hell, I would like to release it now and show you the progress, but I have many more ideas and touch ups to do before it's done. I'm willing to go out on a limb and say this one might be post ready by the middle to end of next month. Work, school, and gym take up a lot of my time and energy, but I add tidbits when I can.
Today was all about music. Playing around with Audacity is creating more ideas for me as I alter music. When I listen to my music tracks, I visualize a fight or a scene going on as it's playing and if I can put it into the current project, it gets put. If not, it will be saved for later. I have lots of music and that equals lots of projects.
It will be difficult to find a suitable part one ending for this flash, but, I promise you all, this will be the flashiest flash I have ever done. That's not saying much seeing as how i'm bit behind the power curve compared to other veteran animators. I plan to implicate menus, bios, story history, and a full theatrical preview of part 2. As for the future, I expect to have a crossover between this one and MKU by part 3. By the time this one is done, you should have a good grasp of my "style" of animation. Expect the feel of MKU 1 in this one. I'm psyched! Stay tuned!

With new resources at hand, i'm moving forward in my ongoing projects. Like I stated in an earlier post, to avoid laziness and boredom, I have decided to work on a number of projects simultainously. So, if I get tired of working on one I can jump to another which is a of a different storyline. Currently, I've been working diligantly on the Future Force project. I don't understand how a preview can earn me a daily 4th award and a full version of an installment 3 versions long gets nothing. So, on that note, I have decided to continue my new series Future Force. You true blue followers know that I have 3 in the works. MKU 3, Future Force, and Crossworld. I think i'll end up swapping titles of Future Force and Crossworlds seeing as what I have now is more of a Crossworld battle. I could call it MK vs SF, but......COME ONNNNNN. Anyhow, once I find a suitable screenshot for you all, I'll post it. In the meantime, this is the post. Stay tuned.

LEVEL UP!!

2010-06-19 23:21:09 by smoothuser

Now that I have a good grasp of buttons and my newest aquisition of Audacity, I will be re-releasing MKU: 2 with vocal dialogue, putting my vocal skills to the test, and menu options. There is a lot of text in MKU: 2 and I don't believe you can properly capture the passion of the characters unless you're actually hear how I intended them to deliver their lines. It might even have an alternate ending. I'm not looking to do anything overly extensive to it. I'm sure i'll get around to it when I get tired of animating all of my other current projects. A little fun fact, Crossworld is the very first project to feature my vocal skills. All the voices in there will be mine. From here on out, I'm going to keep doing my vocals until I run out of voices. Now, I don't know which project will be released here first, but, just a fun fact, right after I dowloaded Audacity, my voice went straight into Crossworld. LEVEL UP!!

It's been a while since i've submitted anything, so i'll submit this post! With my semester of school soon ending, I just might have time to get back on track with my animating. Work still takes up more than enough of my day time, but, with two week break from school i'll be a little more active on the me time. I have been doodling with a few projects. To your bottom is a screen shot of my most recent idea. As you can see, finally, Goku and Superman are in the same frame, at the same time, in the same animation. I PROMISE you, this will eventually pan out into what all of you DC and DBZ fans are thinking. For now, it's just a screen shot. Actually, i'm working on developing a short, movie style preview for all of my viewers just to give you a grasp of the storyline I have planned. I hope the preview sparks your interest. I have plans to combine this story with my current Future Force storyline. If all goes to plan, things should fit fine. I haven't given up on anything and MKU 3 gets attention every now and then as well. So, that's it. Stay tuned. OH OH OH, just to give a rub to one of my favorite animators, be on the lookout for R1665's latest installment of VG: Exiles part 3. I'm SURE it will be EPIC!

It's PREVIEW TIME!

Mortal Kombat Unlimited 3 Preview. Still a long work in progress. I'm working a lot more now, so I don't have a lot of free time. This one is gonna take a while.


MKU 3 IN PROGRESS

I figured out my problem. I work on a project for a long amount of time and either I get lazy and sacrifice quality or I start working on another project. Well, now, I'm gettin down and dirty with 2 projects. Today, I had an idea for MKU 3. As I started putting it together I began to like it more and more, so I was able to put in a full days work. Here a screen shot. As you can see, Scorpion is back and he's not happy. This is the "working" Hell I created. It's subject to change, but it's decent enough for a screen shot. Stay tuned. There will be a lot coming your way.

MKU 3 IN PROGRESS


Coming Attractions

Okay peeps. Seeing as how MKU 2 didn't live up to my expectations, i've decided to take a brief hiatus from it as many people do from time to time. I believe my best works come from the spur of the moment. My recent spur of the moment was X-Men. In particular CYCLOPS! Cyclops is one of my all time favorite X-Men and I believe it is time he is given his due credit as the bad ass he really is. Here is a VERY early rendition of things to come. It's an X-Men piece so far. Hope you'll toon in!

Well, MKU 2 didn't quite pan out as I planned. Definitely not my best showing. I gotta go back to my roots. MKU 3 will be in the works soon as well as another side project i'm putting together. If one doesn't get you, I'll make sure the other one does. Thank you all for watching, voting, and critiquing. Keep your eyes open for more stuff.
