Scene 4 Complete

Scene 4 is complete, bringing episode 8 over the halfway mark. Here are 3 screenshots of nothing in particular:

 (Blob's eager to get somewhere)
 (The Moo-Runt is taking things easy with a bite to eat)
 (Fables been seriously offended)

Next up is Scene 5 where the action starts to really kick in and the danger is revealed. Before that though i aim to create a short christmassy animation featuring Blob. Of course they don't have Christmas in Lillium so it will be something just to do with snow I think.

Steaming through Scene 3

I am already into Scene 3 part 2, this scene shouldnt take too long even though there is a lot to do. The reason for this that its mostly a dialogue based scene. Only time consuming factor is the diffferent angled backgrounds i will have to draw.

Here are two screenshots from Scene 3 part 1:

(A Moo-Runt looking back at whats going on)

 (Fable gets a surprise when opening the container)

Short Project - Kirby's Power flaw

Thought i'd make this so people dont get bored waiting for me to finish episode 8. Which isnt even half way yet but progress has been slowed due to heavy supply of work from clients but next week should pick up back to normal.
-------------------------
Kirby has the power to take whatever he eats and use its ability. For some reason Kirby always ends up with something on his head when he eat an enemy and takes their ability. Therefore this is possible............

Kirby and related characters belong to Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.

Its time to reveal Episode 8 in the Lillium Series! This episode is called 'Return To The Frozen Land' and it will feature Blob and Fable as the main characters for this one.

Heres a non spolier summary of the plot:

Luckily Fable is at hand to help and relieves Blob and the mysterious girl from thier captors. Fable and Blob find out that this girl is a Ice Princess and must return to her homeland or else her island will sink to the bottom of the sea, they both agree to help her. But with more enemies on the way, will they be able to return the girl back to her homeland before it is lost forever?

Heres the poachers dressed in thier warm clothes as the Frozen lands are treacherously cold:

Master Of time- Fight Scene

Animating progress has been slow for both projects, 'The Master Of Time' and 'Final Fantasy VII' as both are in detailed fight scenes with tricky poses. I have managed to take a unrevealing screenshot from the Master Of time, to keep people satisfied for the Moment. There may also be a short trailer out for the film in coming weeks.

(The Master Of Time's personal Guard 'Verity' is ready to protect her Master)

Plus I plan to upload some random artwork very soon, some Lillium related and some not.

Episode LIst!

Finally I have accepted that the Lillium animations I do are in fact a series. That's not a bad thing I guess. I have decided to list 'Blob and the Earth Child' as the official episode 1, I know there are previous Blob films out there. But i belive that the earth child story was the first to look at Lillium and life on the planet.

Having a episode list also means fans get a sneak preview of what future episodes are coming up and can decide for themselves what the titles mean.

Projects on Fire!

Project swapping - The Epics

Due to the fact that I am tackling two large projects I have set up a rota in which I swap what project I animate each day. So that progress is made with both.

In my 'The Master Of Time' project 10 seconds into Scene 3 part 1 Spectre is on his way to stop the Master Of Time.

(Spectre flys fast through the Lillium landscape, not all of Lillium has been frozen in time....... yet)


The Final Fantasy VII Project is 20 seconds into Scene 2 Part 1 with the party entering a cave that allows easy passage through the mountains. But does it really?

Master of Time: Scene 2 - Halfway through

I am halfway through The Master Of Time's scene 2. This scene is dialogue heavy, however I only have 6 lines of dialogue left to do. Spectre and The High Lord are trying to come to some sort of agreement, after all, Spectre won't work for free.



(As always, Spectre makes a joke of a serious situation)

Updates on Scene 2's completion and the Final Fantasy VII project coming soon.

Scenes and Steps!

The Final Fantasy VII project I am working on, is now at Scene 2. I have completed Scene 1 totalling at a 57 second stretch. Scene 2 will be much longer and much harder to animate. I must face the fact that Scene 2 of this project will be my home for a long time now:


(The gang walk into the icy cavern to begin Scene 2)

In my project 'The Master Of Time' Spectre is making his ascent up to the top of the High Lords temple. What is usually a five mintue climb up all those steps takes Spectre a few seconds to fly up.


(Spectre glides quickly up the steps)

Final Fantasy Project - Nearing end of Scene 1

It feels like I've been treading my way through this scene forever but I am now finally near the end with the goal in view. However Scene 2 will take much longer, what with its more difficult challenges animation wise. The small fight scene is over now in scene 1 and the party remain unscathed so far.


(Cloud, Tifa and Cid stand back to back whilst an onslaught of enemies attack)

Meanwhile regarding my 'The Master Of Time' Project. I am now starting scene 2 part 2 where Spectre and the High Lord will try to bargain with each other. Screenshots on that soon!

Two Project Post

Firstly I will start with the Final Fantasy VII project I have taken. I am now animating the midst of the started battle for the animation. This is a kind of mini battle before big boss arrives.


(Vincent holding gun, shooting various flying enemies)

I have animated Vincent, Barret and Yuffie getting involved in the fight but the others have yet to be completed. Next up for completion is Cait Sith.

In the my project 'The Master Of Time' Spectre has been summoned and released from his imprisonment:


(Spectre breathes the fresh air...... well... kind of.)

(Although having just gain his freedom he is not going to be polite)
