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!

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!

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:

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!
