ZedrinBot's News

Posted by ZedrinBot - 1 month ago


Thank you for the reception Hiro the Dense 2's gotten! I'm honored for the feedback and love.


Just a fun bit of history:

The first one was largely based off of a post I found screenshotted from one of the chans. I had altered a lot of it myself, but a few of the gags and jokes were still adapted from there. Fun fact: the original actually had the 'Demon Lord' a sassy teenaged girl. Other parts of it included the protagonist just being reluctant / dodging the question, rather than being too dense to figure out what's going on. But I couldn't take credit for the gag of "DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT I AM!?" "Uh... Angry?" "YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT I'M ANGRY!"


However, the second one is otherwise totally my writing. All the gags + how to integrate them were my own design, so hearing that a lot of people thought the second one was even funnier than the first is a huge compliment to me. I was also able to learn a few new tricks: the vine animations for instance? Those are totally tweened, and I'm super proud of them.


The only thing I wish was that I could've extended the animation somehow to get 1 extra minute. Hitting the 10 minute mark would've seriously helped its standing on youtube, but I don't like padding my content unnecessarily.


I've been debating whether or not to make a third one. I do want to and I do have ideas, it's just they'd be bigger than what I've made so far. I also have other things I need to make sure I get done. It'll all depend on how this one fairs. (For the record I do have a script in its first draft, but it's like 14 pages long at the moment. Twice the length of the second.)


Originally I had planned to release Hiro 2 to Newgrounds the day I streamed a live viewing, but the streaming side of Youtube was down and broken that day. That entire thing was a mess, so instead I opted to just release it the same day as Youtube. I didn't want to delay it further, so that honestly was the best thing I could do.


Anyway, I'm finally off my vacation, so my webcomic should be back underway in a bit, and more art and the like should be coming soon. I have a lot of Patreon rewards to get caught up on.

Hiro 2 will be uploaded tomorrow.

Everything went to hell and back on Youtube so I'm not in any mood to post it today.

After this there'll be a brief break from the comic, especially since at the moment I have someone visiting me. Art and stuff until then is gonna be a bit sparse!

New comic update!

iu_38210_5719644.png


Meanwhile: Audio for Hiro the Dense 2 is stitched together, ready for lipsynching! There's only a little more to do before release!


Once that's done, then I hand it off to Strelok for the audio processing and SFX while I handle the VFX post processing and things like the credits. Hoping to have it ready by the end of this month!

Totally forgot to post about this. New comic update! https://www.pv02comic.com/

iu_35976_5719644.png


Meanwhile, Hiro 2's core animation is done. Need to do backgrounds, audio compiling, and lipsynching, and then some spit and polish and it'll be good to go!!


Also, if you're not yet, you should give me a follow on Twitter. https://twitter.com/Zedrinbot Find out when I'm streaming and stuff.

It's the 2 week mark, so there's a new comic update! https://www.pv02comic.com/

iu_32911_5719644.png


Meanwhile Hiro the Dense 2 is on its way! Most of the base animation's one and (after like 6 months of animating and working on it) I finally have the lines finalized for the intro, so now I have my VAs recording for it!


I'm very happy with the script. As usual I stream on Saturdays to Youtube if you want to see work in progress: https://www.youtube.com/zombiezephyr

This has been a big milestone week for me as well. Hit the 10k and 20k follower milestones on my sfw and nsfw twitters respectively.


I feel like I also ought to start a new big NSFW project but I don't want to force any ideas. I've already got a lot on my plate however.

In other news, I got a new tablet! I received it for review purposes, and I'm liking it a lot, enough that I actually replaced my Intuos 4 XL. It's a Gaomon PD 1560. I'll have a video going up on Youtube for it, probably by the end of this week.


Everything else is pretty much the same as last time: still working on Hiro 2, being careful to not bring back my RSI, etc.

Haven't posted in a while. Let's change that.


I hit a major slow point art wise due to an RSI in my wrist. Every now and then it flares up, but it's made it hard for me to keep up art wise. To compound things, I also had an influx of events that have kept me very busy the past few weeks.


There's finally more stuff coming from me down the road. That said I dunno if I'll ever be at the same speed I was a year or two ago. Not really much you can do though.


My comic's had 3 updates since last I posted, you can read em starting here:

https://www.pv02comic.com/comic/page107/

iu_27402_5719644.png


Hiro the Dense 2 is still slowly but surely making progress. Still have to contact my VAs for lines. The base animations for scenes 2, 3, and most of 4 are done. I need to finish up 1 and 4, do scene 5, do backgrounds for all 5 scenes, and do the lipsynch / detail work for each scene. (Not as much work as it sounds, since lipsynching is a specialty for me and the detail work is usually pretty simple for Hiro the Dense, it's mostly dialog bounce.)


It's starting to get hot here in AZ again which suuuuucks. You can tell I've also run out of things to say because I'm talking about the weather.


So that concludes this journal entry make sure to like the entry comment the entry and subscribe if you wanna see entries similar to this one, seeya.

First things first, PV02 has another comic update!

You can read it here: https://www.pv02comic.com/

iu_16401_5719644.png


I'm still kinda at an impasse project-wise. I don't know exactly what I'll work on next for my NSFW project. For SFW, I still have Hiro the Dense 2 to work on, and have been dragging my feet with the critique video. Woo.


Also kinda had art block for the past few days.


Also over on my Patreon a lot of people recently hit their milestone rewards, so I've been getting through those.

Thank you all who liked Curly Brace: Hacked 2! I'm rather fond of the style change in it, just cause it emulates the style of the game more closely.


Some things I've realized (or re-realized. I already knew this stuff. Why didn't I follow it???): if you're doing a single continuous scene in Toon Boom, don't try to get fancy with doing loops externally, and don't separate it into cutoff points. Just make it one big file, and loop things manually. Yeah, Hacked 2 would've been about 6000 frames, instead of 5 scenes that were at most 300 frames that looped in AE, but I would've had way more minute control over things, and it would've been easier to edit and fix parts. Plus I wouldn't need looping markers.


The biggest change I'd've made however probably would've been to zoom in more, or do a few cuts to more intimate angles. One big advantage of the first one was it was done from a webcam perspective, which meant it was close and front-on. I wanted a 3Q angle for the climax scene.


Granted, part of why I didn't do multiple angles was cause I wanted to get this done quickly--just two months after releasing the Shantae animation, which had taken me a whole year. The prior one had taken like 4 months or so. That's pretty impressive to me time-wise, to be honest.
