Let’s see what was. Toys, comics, and an excellent buffalo chicken wrap, that was the Zolocon 2023 Halloween Show in a nutshell. I should prefaced a nut allergy warning. But Zolocon is a cool collectible show with a lot of cool items, from a lot of great vendors.
Next we had a interesting show in a Medical Museum that was the Lancaster Heritage Medical Museum for an Arts and Craft show, a first time show put on at the Museum and it was a fine show, saw some wood, a section for quack medicine and a tooth key. Medical history had some crude roots and quack medicine and then to where it is today and the Museum has a lot of interesting history to see.
Now to where things are currently, I’m wrapping up the last several of the backgrounds for the TO12H project. I’m also working on a few more designs for the Ink spill line. There’s more in the works. Until next time. -bryan
The production process continues and so do the backgrounds. First off, scene 4 has been completed which was a big step to wrap up the exterior shots of old man Lou’s house. All of those shots have been inked, scanned, and cleaned and I’ve begun dropping in the color palette and piecing it together. I had two additional shots from the same scene and for whatever reason one of the last shots kept giving me problems with the angles, everything I tried just wasn’t producing the look that I needed. Instead of fighting resistance on an angle I was stuck at, I decided to go with another technique and I decided to print out the 3D model and copy over the reference image and draw in the details, problem solved.
Let’s go! It’s time again for another update to see how things are going with The Opposite 12th Hour | TO12H. The background process continues and I’ve been working on background art for scenes five and one.
Scene five is comprised of a series of exterior shots of Vincent’s house. All of the final timing has been mapped out, and camera moves and character placeholders have been added to the final edit.
Another session of Creative Drive is ready for viewing. In this session watch as I work on creating elemental animation of the vortex portal, created (fbf) frame by frame for the first episode of The Opposite 12th Hour | TO12H. The box turn and box tilt were created and rigged and animated using bone dials. I thought the creation process definitely came out looking really good, have a watch if you’d like. Until next time. -bryan
Growth and trying something new. I had made a mention in the previous post about the Intro Theme + Clip for The Opposite 12th Hour, but if you’ve haven’t watched it, it’ll only take a minute and let me know what you think.
The process and overall timeline, ended up working out well. I know personally the clip runs a bit short but to get out when I wanted, I had to compromise. I think it works fine as an actual sampling of things to come.
Over on Instagram I have been adding additional content and I will continue to post behind the scenes, and the continuing production photos and video over there. I want to go into the archive and see what sort of storyboard footage I can pull together.
