grOw/cinema, Ep. VIII work continues... 15 frames done

It's gone a little slower than I had hoped, but part of that is due to the amount of details that have gone into the frames I worked on this week. Lot's of dramatic camera angles (that take care to line-up the drawn characters to the 3D background), lots of special liquid effects, and many overlapping characters (which requires more selection and masking). I also lost some work time to "real life work" and other "moving chores". I finished frame 15 today.  Next week, I will be working on Monday and part of the day Tuesday, and then I head back to NY for some personal appointments as well as my attending SIZECON 2018!

I will see you at SIZECON 2018 on Saturday, July 28. I may be around in the morning of Sunday, but that is to be determined!

grOw/cinema, Ep. VIII production resumes after my move!

I meant to post this on this past Friday, but got busy and forgot. I am now (mostly) settled in to my new home, with my studio set back up and Wacom pen in hand!  Last week, I was able to spend a day and a half working on grOw/cinema and completing 4 frames. This week, I have returned to my normal production schedule.

Now, there WILL be another hiatus next week, as I travel back to NY to close out some accounts and visit friends and family who I hadn't had the chance to do so before we left. But this trip ALSO includes attending SizeCon2018 in NYC!  See you there on Saturday, July 28. (I won't be there on Sunday, as I have other plans and will be leaving to go back home afterwards).

However, after that, I will back on full steam ahead on Episode VIII!
