I was thinking of something to animate that took less time and offered me a chance to add more special effects. The whole “Fantasy Battle Arena” concept got out of hand so I’ve simplified things to a series of short animations in a close fight sequence. This is a Star Wars year (with the forthcoming release of Episode VII this December), why not honor the film series that made me who I am today? “Jedi Vs.” will put a common Jedi character (rig by Joe Daniel’s Body Mechanic Rigs) with various other characters soon to be mentioned. With the plethora of character models at my disposal on the ‘net, it should be a lot of fun. As of today, I finished the opening title sequence and currently working on the first short. If I can knock a short out in two-three days each, I won’t feel guilty for the fun …
It’s pathetic. I’ve finally come to grips with my hate for YouTube and recent attempts to upload some animation has finalized my disgust for the over-saturated, communal, How-To video center and that’s just about all YouTube will amount to. Netflix grabbed the top honor for streaming. Anything else is to figure out how to change your tire, learn animation or fix your plumbing.
