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!

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.

Curly Brace: Hacked 2 is completed! It is currently available in early access for patrons! You can view it early by becoming a patron.

The total runtime is 4 minutes roughly AND VERY OBVIOUSLY is nsfw.


As with the first one, it contains a lot of robot hacking / hypno goodness. If that aint your thing, you might not like it.

Also as with the first one, it's a single continuous scene for simplicity's sake (which allowed me to get it done WAY faster than my last project. The Shantae one took me a full year to finish. Oof.)


Now if only I had actually built the project files like that instead of splitting it into different sections, I would've saved myself a lot of time, syncing issues, and rendering woes. One 2000-frame animation is way easier to manage than five 400-frame animations.

iu_12581_5719644.jpg

It'll be up here on Newgrounds within the coming weeks.


Additionally, there was another update last week for PV02. (Forgot to mention it here.)

iu_12582_5719644.png


March 7th was also Gardevoir day, so I did a request stream and took 11 requests in the span of 5 hours. They're all up on my nsfw Twitter.


If and when Newgrounds gets full multi-image support I'll likely post em all to here. Doing em individually in the description or even just as several uploads feels a bit spammy / hard to scroll through / is a bit time consuming, however, so I'm gonna hold off for now and limit it to just a few.


Hiro the Dense 2 is also underway. I have WIPs going up on my patreon, and I'm making slow but stable progress. With Curly done I can also dedicate a little more time to it--optimistically I may have something ready sometime in April or May, but let's be honest, animation deadlines are never accurate.


Streams for that go up on Youtube on Saturdays, if you're interested in checking them out. I stream 4-7pm AZ time (which is now the same as Pacific with DST).


That's all I got for now.

Haven't posted here in a while. BUT ANYWAY


Project updates:

Hiro the Dense 2 is underway. Animatic is done, and I have a workflow for animating the full thing in Toonboom without resorting to numerous scene files. As before, when it's ready, Patrons get early access, then it'll be viewaable here on Newgrounds a day before it goes live on Youtube.


Curly Brace: Hacked 2 is done with animation, and is in the compositing stage. Shouldn't be long before it's done. I'm very happy with it so far. (As before, since it's adult, it'll be Newgrounds exclusive after its patreon early access.)


My critique video has been rewritten to its third draft and I'm finally satisfied with it. Need to finish recording for it, but I've managed to get its time down to just what's essential. There's enough content out there on how to take critique, but not a lot on what makes a critique good.


Last week was incredibly busy for me so I didn't get to work much on any art or projects.


BUT there is a new PV02 comic update! You can view it here: https://www.pv02comic.com/
