grOw/cinema, Ep. XII, frame 56 completed!

I was able to finish up to frame 56 this week, leaving only 14 more frames to go! Yes, I added one more frame for a total of 70 this issue. I felt it was for the best, as I took one particular "motion blurred" image and turned it into a 2-panel "motion sequence".  

Speaking of which, have you seen other of these motion sequences throughout grOw/cinema?  You can see the "arrow hints" at the top and bottom of the pages they occur on. Some are sequential (such as growing bigger and bigger) and the arrows will show "forward" and a "stop" icon on the last image of the sequence. Other motion sequences are "cyclical", such as two characters having sex. Here, you will see 2 arrows facing each other ( --> <-- ). Here, you can flip back and forth between the pages to see a simulated back-and-forth motion. Note: these sequences work best in a PDF viewer app that allows "instant" page turning, and not on mobile in which you usually simply "scroll" to the next page. Try it on your desktop, using Adobe Acrobat Reader (free from Adobe) and use your keyboard arrow keys to turn the pages.
I also just realized that I didn't post last week's preview here at the blog last Friday. I had intended to keep the Summer Sale post at top for a few extra days before doing so, but had forgotten to follow-up. I DID post it to both Twitter and my DeviantArt pages. But, here it is...

Hang in there! We are getting closer!

grOw/cinema, Ep. XII, frame 36 complete!

I am amazed that I was able to get 10 full frames done this week with the amount of detail required for the last number of frames. Part of what helped is that half of these frames are a part of sequence, with some items not changing. However, many frames contain multiple characters — as many as 10 full-bodied and -detailed people — which takes a lot more time that that average frame. I think I did enough work for 16-18 frames. Whew!

grOw/cinema, frame 26 completed!

In terms of frame count, it may seem that not a lot of progress was made this week. But that can't be further from the truth.  The 7 frames I finished this week each required LOTS of work. For one, the story has transitioned to a new scene, required me to create it in my 3D program (from scratch). Also, many of these frames contain a lot of new characters — one frame even showing 9 people. The more people, faces, and detailed clothing in a frame, the more time it takes to create. One frame took an entire day (in comparison, I can get up to 3+ frames done in the same time, depending on the complexity). In the end, I easily did the work of 13-15 frames. So, we're still on track!

grOw/cinema, frame 19 completed!

A little later than my usual Friday update:

Frame 19 of grOw/cinema, Episode XII, has been completed. "Real life" work, as well as "real life", slowed down production this past week, causing a result of a couple of frames fewer than I had hoped. But, the amount of characters per frame, special effect details, and extra work on getting the right "camera angle" also took more time, so, these delays just made the issue better.  ;-) 
To make up for the delays, I am posting a slightly more juicy preview.
