The final post of 2012 🙂 I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday. With 2013 just around the corner, I thought I would provide an update to this weeks work but also as to what I hope 2013 holds for this project as well. It has been a very exciting project, that has taken a lot of time and I enjoyed every minute of it.
Last week, I started laying down some base colors on the existing artwork that I have inked. In that regard I am on page 4 of 7. Each of those pieces still need to have highlights and shading added to them. There are a little over 20 drawings in that group. I have continued to ink images as well, I am on page 5 of 7. I am looking at probably another month until the final shot is fully inked, colored and shaded.
I have also continued to work on the trailer. I have re-rendered out some previous shots with a new color scheme and also created a new scene. These shots all need to be composited but I can start working on the remaining shots and as those render, I can work on compositing.
As I look ahead to 2013, I have several things I am going to work hard to complete. In terms of Cosmic Rage, I am hoping to have the trailer done sometime in the first quarter of 2013. As work continues on the trailer, there is more work being done on the episode as well. I believe January will be used for finishing the trailer and also the coloring process for the final shot. I think sometime in February compositing on the trailer and more animation on the episode will start.
Early 2013 I also want to complete a couple other projects. I have kept them a little bit under wraps. One of the projects we have received some user feedback and are working to resolve those. The first quarter of 2013 should see the release of a few of these projects and I look forward to sharing these once they are completed. I look forward to seeing you in 2013!
