Ignore that preview image, I'm at work and don't have time to create a relevant one.

So who remembers that I was working on this?

Apologies that I've had nothing to show for it for the last YEAR or so. Aside from the numerous computer issues I was having, the main reason for lack of progress is that the shadow work was killing my motivation. That's what I get for liking details so much I guess, hehe.

Anyway, I've just now finished this sequence. I'm gonna resume progress on this, but I'll only be able to do it at work. My install for Flash was on the second hard drive which appears to be completely inaccessible right now. I'll have to send it back again to get it sorted for the clicking issue it had.

Anyway! I'll be sure to work with simpler shadows for the rest of this just so I can get through it all.
Enjoy :)

You know what I really love about this version?: The secondary animation. I had to watch it about continuously on a loop just because because of all the movement in her hair and facial expressions. None of it disappoints at all.

Oh my goodness, this is amazing! I didn't expect you to do the shadows as well! I thought it's just gonna be filling in the colors.

Late to comment, I've been sitting on this one for a while.

Phenomenal work.

Those little details have got to be murder, though...


The tedium of all that is really paying off, though.

...I'm totally floored by the complexity of this, though.


Um...
...Instead of babbling, I'll just say I really like this, and look forward to seeing this when it's finished.

Oh wow. It's great to see this animation again! Your work is one of the many reasons I've decided to go into the animation industry.

The shading turned out great in that scene. I can't wait to see it colored and complete.

Awesome work as always Funky.

Much like a zombie, it has been brought back to life.

I like to think that this is a bit prettier looking than a zombie, though :)

Sorry, my mind was silly after a day trip to Dallas, but, the part where her tong licks her lips might look great in an extreme close-up. :thumbsup:

I think that last sequence is going to be the acid test on my patience. So much stuff happening that I have to do shadows for :noes:

Still, I'm gonna make it through this, so bring it, I say :)

Yes, I remember you working on this... I had honestly thought that you were done with it because, well, we had a rather complete animation (sans colors and such) and I thought that was what you were going for.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing this thing completed now.

Thanks :) The good news is that the second sequence is taking WAY less time than this one. I got through half of it yesterday alone, so hopefully the rest of the animation will be shaded up by the end of the month.
