Lillium Winter special 2011 Update

This years winter special features only Blob getting into some unwanted danger. It shouldn't be no longer than a few minutes long. Here's two screen shots:

(Blob's out enjoying the snow that so rarely falls in the Old Realm)

(Blob finds an odd looking tree, a Christmas tree perhaps?)

Animating the final scenes of Episode 10 now, main characters have died, destruction has been had. Sad times indeed. Without giving anything away I have uploaded new screenshot:

Also exciting news! There will be a Lillium winter special 2011 coming soon (hopefully) so keep an eye out for that!

Ep. 10 - Nearing End Scene 2

I have returned! My apologies for the long silence from me. Since I last posted I have moved out into my own place and am now battling for internet signal =_=

However all this time I have still been animating!
Episode 10 of my Lillium series is nearing end of epic Scene 2 with all the characters being affected by the events occurring.
 (The High lords airship losing control from the explosive force)
(As if there wasn't enough danger, a angry 'Forest Brute' is attacking one of the main characters)

Update on 'Ikimasho! Dame Hito!' production on this has not started yet as 2 voice actors are still yet to send in their lines, so production may not happen for a good while. Or at all if the Lillium series inspires me to focus solely on that.

Ep 10 - Scene 2 All Star Sequence!

Scene 2 has begun and I feel that this is the true 'All Star' scene as it features ALL of the main characters in my series even Fable who kept hidden in Episode 10. Of course the scene starts with the biggest star, Blob.

(Blob and pet Ignia looking worried... about what?)

In other updates, 'Ikimasho! Dame Hito!' is nearly finished in Pre-production with all voices being currently recorded  More progress once all voices have been collected.

Ep. 10 Scene 1 Complete

Scene 1 for Episode 10 has been completed, this is just more destruction shots and terrifying times for the main characters, which is what most of the scenes for this episode are filled with. Roll on Scene 2!

(Matt and Puddles bracing the wind)

Episode 10 - A Mage's Power

I'm at the scene in episode 10 where the Blind Mage, Matt and Puddles have no where else to run and must face the force of the explosion. However the powerful Mage isn't going down easy!

 (The Blind Mage begins to power up her magic)
(As instructed by the Blind Mage. Matt and Puddles hide behind a boulder)

Ikimasho! Dame Hito! Character designs!

Whilst happily animating away on Episode 10 of the Lillium series I am also working on a much smaller project called 'Ikimasho! Dame Hito!' Which as I said before translates to 'Let's Go! Hopeless People!'

Character- Chiri
This was a draft design of the little kid Chiri as I did not like his spiky hair too much in this picture. I wanted a more tamed look for him. Therefore I ended up with a well looked after cute kid (see picture below)
Chiri is a excitable and happy child who is full of energy. Friends with both Rowan and Hisoka.

Character- Rowan

Rowan is the main character of this animation, although he appears to be street tough, he is actually a very dramatic and emotional individual. 

Character- Hisoka

Hisoka was the most challenging to design as I wanted a smart but not nerdy looking guy, a guy who could still impress the ladies I am hoping I have pulled it off. Hisoka is Rowan's best friend and always remains calm during Rowan's emotional outbursts.

Character- Estelle

Estelle is a serious and straight faced girl, very hard to impress and is constantly blowing off any advances that Rowan desperately makes at her.

Information on the storyline and such other information will be featured in next blog update, along with a screenshot from Episode 10.

Ep.10 update + New Project info revealed!

I am 26 seconds into episode 10 and don't plan on slowing down any time soon! The destruction is being taken up a notch and soon all the main characters of the Lillium Series will feel the effects.

(The Blind Mage, Matt and Puddles all running away from the force of the blast)

As well as animating Episode 10 - Goodbye. I am also starting a short and simple(ish) project called 'Ikimasho! Dame Hito!' which simply translates: 'Lets go! Hopeless people!'
 The title is the only information you're getting at the moment, next time I will reveal character designs and concepts.

Episode 10 Begins!

I have started work on Episode 10, taking up where the action left off in Episode 9. 
From the previous post you will know that episode 10 is titled 'Goodbye' but who are we going to say good bye to?
Fortunately Episode 10 should be completed a bit quicker than previous episodes as I have some backgrounds from the previous episode to use again and of course the characters. 

Here's a screenshot of Episode 10:

(Monk and Jiratchi hiding behind a boulder as things get windy!)

Episode 9 - Destruction of the Lillium series is released!

An adventure in Lillium
Episode 9 in the series. 

The city that Matt and Puddles have escaped from comes back to haunt them, when the city goes to war with its citizens. But what affect could this have for the old Realm?

Final Scene 7 and Episode List!

Here's a screenshot from the final Scene 7 of episode 9
 (It's a windy day in Lillium it would seem)

Also here is a list of episodes 9-13 and their titles. Enjoy!

Friday, 2 September 2011

Scene 6 Complete! + New Projects!

Scene 6 has been completed, the scene makes 1 minute 26 seconds in length. I am about 80% through episode 9 now!

Whilst working on Episode 9 I have been developing ideas for non Lillium related projects. I have finalized two ideas. It is important for me to get Episode 9 and 10 completed before any other real projects distract me. But I am aiming for a short project to be released before episode 10 is out as I will work on them roughly at the same time. 
More details on the first short project and Episode 9 updates coming soon!

Scene 6 Part 2 Complete!

I am now onto the final part of Scene 6, part 3. Which involves little more than a few dialogue shots. Then I'll be moving on to Scene 7 the final Scene of episode 9!

Scene 6 Update - Defence!

Scene 6 is nearing its end and the elements are all helping to defend against a powerful force!

(A great wall of Earth and Rock aiming to hold back the powerful force)

Apologies to all who have noticed my quietness on updating with Episode 9's progress. I aim to have more done this week making Friday another full animation day!

The Elements Arrive!

A few elements have arrived to help! With what? Help who? I can't say. But I can share 3 element screen-shots with you. Including the newly designed Rock Element!

 (The Rock Child arrives on Scene!)
(The Water and Ice Child, angry at something!?)

Scene 6 Update!

Time for a update, seeing as I have landed myself a full time job animating has been a bit left behind but I am spending today all day! Animating! Mostly just clouds and lip sync. 

Friday, 12 August 2011

Character classic unite!

Scene 6 as you know features a devastating Tidal wave approaching the inhabitants of The Old Realm side of Lillium. This affects all my main characters to some degree, both new and old are back featured in episode 9 (except for Fable who takes the spotlight in Episode 10).

(Spectre dozing in a tree)

(Blob outside his house with Pet Ignia)

(Monk and Jiratchi making their way hastily down a mountain)

Scene 5 Part 1 Complete

Already 40 seconds into Scene 5, its time for the characters of Lillium to get far away from the oncoming danger. But what is that danger? 

(General, The High Lord and Nelly all worried about the oncoming foe they face) 

(The General sees people boarding the airship)

Until next update!

Scene 5- Chaos Begins

Begin Scene 5 and the pace has been turned up, danger is coming and is imminent. My wish for less dialogue in this scene has been granted, however I have lots of action to animate, from tidal waves, to airships, to frantic extras running around aimlessly.

(Matt, Puddles and The Blind Mage all run outside to see the oncoming danger. But what is it?)

Character Nelly enters Scene 5

Having finished Scene 4 which runs 2 mins and 19 secs . The start of Scene 5 features the first time appearance of Nelly. As the Generals Deputy Nelly is 3rd in command of the High Lords fleet of soldiers.
Nelly is surprisingly short for a high ranked soldier, also panicked easily. Nelly however does have the best pilot and weapons skills within the entire fleet and can be often found training groups of new soldiers.

Scene 4 - Things get Tense

Scene 4 discussion in The High Lords speakers hall is getting rather tense. Who knows how it will end.

(The High Lord loses patience with the conversation)

(Matt appears to not be enjoying himself)

I expect to have Scene 4 completed in the coming days. More updates then.

Scene 4 Part 1 Complete

I have finished the first part of what I like to call (the long but not boring conversation) with 50 seconds tucked away under the scene I have about 2/3 of the scene left to do. Here's a random screenshot:

(Awkwardness- Matt and Puddles)

Ep9 Scene 4 - The Conference

I have reached Scene 4 where several main characters meet up and talk about.... something *secrets* This is the scene with longest run of dialogue and conversations, fortunately not too difficult in regards to actual animation, just lots of lip sync to muddle through.

(The High Lord taking a seat in his Speakers Hall)

Thursday, 21 July 2011

(Not related to My Lillium Series... obviously) 
Can Link give the Kokori children a motivating speech?!
Random Animated short!

Scene 3 Begins! Enter High Lord Ozaka!

I finally finished that pesky Scene 2 and now onto Scene 3, which finally sees the scenery change into a more pleasant environment. This is also the Scene where The High Lord makes his first appearance in the episode followed closely as always by General:

(Something troubles The High Lord)

Small Scene 2 Part 3

I have started on the small and last part of Scene 2, part 3. This involves more dialogue heavy shots.
