Marlin – Dev-Blog – Episode 00004 – 64800-5/12. Finishing the first page of storyboards on the new XP-PEN Artist 24 Pro.

Have to admit all that space is absolutely a killer, and once you get used to the buttons you’re off to the races in terms of efficiency. Loving it so far. If my internet connection didn’t take hours to upload videos I would condense longer pieces and put them up, but I think hour long chunklets sped up to roughly ten minutes is about the place to be for the foreseeable future.

I’m hoping she likes it as a surprise, as the book is only getting finished so she has this animation. I know she wanted a game, but it’s too far above my head, where my strengths lie in drawing, and if I have to do that thousands of times so be it.

Music by Jesse Gallager – Angel Guidance. Digging the Cello playing.

Oh here’s a couple of character sketches from the story and last nights post which I forgot to upload here:

Marlins Parents.
Joshua, a protagonist in the story and his trusty plank. Check out the channel for his drawing process.
The creation of Joshua. Or Tum, whichever you prefer.

Much pleasure,

Switching things up and turning the game into an animated series (movie?).

So I realized that it would take me years to develop the game that she wants so I’m just going to power through tens of thousands of drawings and make a small series of movies based off of a Book I wrote that is hidden partially within my blog, but the rest remains relatively secret within my notes. It’ll be similar, in that it’s animal fantasy–a genre that I enjoyed immensely growing up. Hopefully my work will be worth while once it’s done.

So there will be behind the scenes Dev-Blog videos, Storyboarding Videos, Cast and Crew Videos as we record and have our fun for the day making sure that things get made. I have no idea how long it’ll take to get made but I’m sure it’ll be faster than trying to do everything in a game single handily–and who knows, I may be able to find people that want to help out in the local area with my animators group. But for now I’m going to be spending the days storyboarding as much as I can while recording the process and saying that, I should probably get back to work. I’m unsure why I couldn’t put up a custom thumbnail though I did verify myself, but it’s no matter, it’ll work it’s self out or I can force them in the front of the videos if I really have to.

Here’s the first Dev-Blog Video of Marlin’s Journey:

Episodes 91 and 92 are up! One for each of Animal Quest, and another for Divergent Mind.

Please go to anchor.fm/DivergentMind for the latest and greatest episodes until I can afford to upgrade my WordPress plan and get the plugin that allows something as simple as entering in a block. In the mean time here are links that all help me out to get to that goal faster.

In the Divergent Mind Episode I talk about black holes, creating my first Machine Learning Ai (I am literally at the baby steps stage but I know the parts I need to learn to get something going using scraped data.)

Just a few sketches. If you know who originally did the mouse please help me find them. Their style is gorgeous.

Martian water finder doing their job the old way.
My morning warmup. Nothing great here but it’s nice to practice.
This is not my character nor my background. It I loved them both so decided to draw and add them together.

Ep 86 is up! Animal Quest – The Travelers – Ch 8 – Pages 1769 – 1821.

It’s basic, but as you can see the tremor in my hand is causing me issues, so I think I’ll switch to procreate and slow the lines down to make them smoother. Then I can go in depth with detail. This was just a practice run of Rose sleeping front the last episode of Animal Quest – The Travelers.

Please go to http://Anchor.fm/DivergentMind to see the latest episode if the embedded file still isn’t working. In the mean time I’m going to play catch up today and try and get some art made after a few episodes are done. I’m developing a better style suited for a children’s book but it’s still no where near the level that I want. I know I want thin lines. And dashes of colour, but this is what I came up with last night up above.

Anchor.fm/DivergentMind Eps. 70-82 are up. Sorry for the lack of updates. I’m having issues inserting into blocks at the moment.

Please go to http://Anchor.fm/DivergentMind to check out the new episodes and support the cast. There’s hours of listening to catch up on and I’m putting out three more episodes today so I can try and shoot for 100 episodes in under a hundred days. Maybe I’ll get lucky and get it under 50 but who knows.

Ep.65 Animal Quest – The Travelers – Ch 6 – Pgs 1281-1331 are up. Hello other side of the world! Morning all.

Anchor.fm/DivergentMind

Head over there to get the lastest episode. I can’t afford to pay 100 a year just for a plugin that may work when a click is all it takes to make sure it works. Much Pleasure to you and yours -J. Also I think I’ve figured out what I can offer on my Patreon to bring in people but tell me if I’m wrong.

Artwork of characters of the shows for upcoming Merch to be voted on by the listeners.

Extra behind the scenes snippets while I’m working. How I work and all that.

Perhaps even an episode early if I can figure that out at the right tier. Either way, here’s hoping.
