Starting Momentum

I’ve been in the preplanning process for a very long time for several projects.  I’ve finally started animating again. My goal is to get enough good material for a demo reel.  I’ve also recently downloaded the unreal editor.  My goal is to make a free to play sample level a game.  It’ll be a sample for a game to kickstart that’ll be either stand alone rpg or mmo that mixes alice in wonderland styles with the best of pastamancy. The final product will depend on what I can scrounge together for a team and for server space.  This is very rough so far so it’ll be a while until full concept art and planning designs will be up.

In the mean time, thanks for sticking with my blog!  I’m going to make sure to update once a week.  Even if all I have to show for it is… well… this!

Here are the profiles for the 3 main characters of the new series I’m working on: “The Amazing Mr. Meowsky”. They give a broad overview of the characters and a turnaround with expression close-ups.
I know I haven’t shared too much about the project one here, so hope this helps!Brody_Character_Profilexl-01

Well I’ve been taking a break from the land of flash puppets lately and am planning a few hand drawn animations.  For this, I’ve been doing character reference and pose work for the main characters.

The first animation is going to be a normal-ish girl going to a furry convention for the first time.

The Next animation will be about a mouse who draws pictures and the come to life off of the page.

Here it is in all of it’s glorious-ness. It’s been 1 year of off an on working on this, and I’ve learned a lot in that year about animaiton and where I want to eventually go with it. But for now, sit back and enjoy the fun, silly animaited shenanigans.

The straight through animation can be found here:
Ponyville Tryouts on Youtube

I also created an interactive version of it, which can be found here:

Raven Flight Motion Study

This is a simple raven motion study I just did, with the motion of flight.

Here’s another quick animation in at least a couple to come and hopefully, it’ll help with future animations.

Well with the print and play out and the print on demand version of Ponyfight scheduled to release as soon as we get the proofs, here’s some of my favorite Item assets that I did.

AssetReview-01While it’s not quite as animated as the ponies are, I’m still pretty proud of all the illustrator work I put in to make this game a reality.

 

Just a quick update

Hey everyone! This is just a quick working update.  Since Ponyfight?! Is completed and I haven’t been able to find stable work yet, I’m going to be looking into getting support to go back to school this spring.  I’ll also be attempting a quick animation a week kind of deal.  It’s been a long, tough road trying to break into the animation industry after my em3:trainingU247 job, but hopefully all my work with tutorials, game design, and the internship will pay off.

After all this time and work, we’ve finally got the game up on drive thru cards.

go check it out!  The rulebook is free to download and if you’re interested, the game is only 2$ for print and play.

This is the first game from out studio and we hope you enjoy it.

So if ponies knocking the stuffing out of each other in a competative gladiator type environment sounds like fun, make sure to click the link!

 

Updates 10/1

Well we’ve got the distribution venues picked out for publishing the print and play of Ponyfight!?  but unfortunately we’ve lost a few of our artist due to prior engagements.  That said things are progressing quickly and we’re looking on having things done next week.

 

I’ve also been working on something called “Modular Episodic Gameplay”.  M.E.G.  is a system that uses a simple format, tropes, events, and characters to create an emersive and quirky gameplay experience.

I’ll be working on a few different games involving this system after ponyfight!? is completed.

I’m going to be attempting to start up the tutorial site again, since I’ve got a little bit more time available now.  I’m aiming to post something every Wednesday.  I have a link on the right hand side of the screen called: “Christy’s flash class”.  You’re welcome to check it out.  I’ve got 3 tutorials so far and this recent one I’ve done some had some gifs I did for it.  They’re really simple, but kinda fun.

WordPress doesn’t work with gifs well, but if you click on them a few times, it gives you a window where you can see it working.  If they’re not working, they’ll be in the blanks that follow.
