Animate or not? Current Mood: busy
This summer I was so busy learning how to use Flash animation studio I barely had time to draw so I didn't make much in advances for either the DCT or the Masked Senshi comics. Interesting though... I did well with the program. Now I'm trying to get my hands on my own copy of it. If I can get my own pad to draw directly onto the computer at home as well, I would consider animating at least some scenes or moments of the DCT movie. I'm not sure which though and I don't know if it would bring down the quality of the artwork because it'd be distracting that it'd jump between moving one moment and slideshow like the next...
Luckily I know that Masked Senshi jokes are short enough that if I put a website up with enough bandwith to support flash files, I could take some jokes and bring them to life without much difficulty. Now that the fall semester has begun, I'm finding more time to think about the masked senshi comics and to scetch them out again and write down information put up on the site.
Considering that plenty of the DCT written part is over already, I suppose the best thing I can do for now is try finding time to record any scenes left unfinished and then to at least try a scetchy run through of how the sound compares to graphics I come up with.
That's how it is big project-wise. In the background, I'm just plain debating getting more of my artwork online by scanning more often and getting an account like deviant art maybe...
|Art- here we go
It's great that we've made progress on DCT. We recorded a whole bunch of the audio and I've discovered a great place for sound effects and non patent music that you can be used if we need. The illustration part of the presentation is still underway partially because I've been busy in animation class. Along with that, I have been trying to figure out if I would animate any part of DCT. It would take more time, but it'd be awfully nice. So the animation class I'm in has been a nice exposure to the idea. We'll see what I decide upon. I'm very glad that we've come this far.
Thank you to everyone involved in that production.
As for other art, I've been working lately more on funny MPT videos and learning about new video editing computer software than creating a website for my Masked Senshi comics. I still will get to that eventually though and perhaps by asking for some requests, that'll help motivate me to stop and scan my drawings.
Maybe I'll get a pad for drawing on the computer. I've loved the one I'm using at school- if I have one here at home then I'll surely get more art up online faster and more often.

If you're involved, please take a look at this sort of list of helping check-off's in case you've forgotten something! Thanks a lot!
-Right now I'm still illustrating the movie> if you have certain ideas for the look of some part in the script tell me
-If you've lost your copy of the script bug me
-If I've never given you the script and you want something bug me
-If you think you could help color the illustrations and/or apply them to the background but you haven't said so, bug me
-If you know a great program that'd be wonderful for editing the slideshow movie, tell me what ideas you have
