Gonna stream me working (animating) on the second episode for a bit on Twitch. Got me a cup of coffee brewed and some water to go, don't be afraid to come on in and keep me company :D

Still alive and ready to do a quick midnight stream on Twitch. In my next post, I think I'll give an update on where I'm at with everything animation wise. I got a lot of clips, voices, and sound effects waiting to be put together!

Just another quick update to let my followers know....that I'm not dead lol. I've been streaming the animation process on Twitch to push myself a little bit more; I want to push this episode out by this fall. It's gonna be A LOT of late nights lol. Come stop by, I'll be streaming almost everyday all this week, starting today!

100 FANS! YES. Humbly thank you guys for the awesome support. As a celebration, I'm now working on a teaser trailer for episode 2 of my animation. Hopefully I'll drop it out around the end of June. Quick post letting everyone know (if you don'd follow me on my other social media) I'm not deceased lol. Good to be back on here every once in a while!
These last 2 years has been quite a shift for me. I'm using GIMP, Krita, and Blender for most of my background painting, photo manipulation, and video editing. Yep. That's right. I didn't know Blender had the ability to edit video...so I'm dropping After Effects and Photoshop, but will still stay subscribed to Adobe Animate until I can fully grasp OpenToonz. (Blender below)
Until then, take it easy and have a good weekend! (EST)

Hey NG and fans!
Long time no post XD. Really want to take the time and thank everyone who has followed me and continue to look for more updates as to how my animation is going. I'm going full steam ahead...seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Been a LONG 2 years and have learned a lot. After the animation is finished, I'm heading straight to my man Mattashi for possible audio work. Have an amazing voice actress as well, Anairis Quinones and Badkill, check em out her stuff. I update daily on Twitter and stream occasionally on Twitch. Here's to me releasing a trailer and the next episode to Nami!
Much love to the NG fam,

Long time no see fans. It's almost blasphemous having no posts for nearly two months, but I'm still alive! I've made a lot of progress since the 1st episode! Been learning a lot of new things lately, and been making software changes (using Krita and GIMP, slowly integrating over to OpenToonz). I posted a sheet below on where I'm at concerning everything visual-wise. Green = Done, Yellow = In Progress, Red = Not Even Close
The biggest change is me cutting the animation down from 60 scenes to 40 scenes, in order to post an animation up here quicker. I'm going to start posting finished GIFs up here soon, from episode 1 to the latest one I'm working on, within news posts and/or the art portal. Here's a snippet (1/4 of 1 scene) of what I've been working on :D
I've also recently joined Twitch in order to fill in for all of the time that I'm offline, so give "Crab TV" some love! I'm all setup on the Twitch side and been using it comfortably. My twitch audience have been experiencing some viewing difficulties, so I lowered the bitrate to 2300 in consideration for mobile users. I can't wait to collaborate again with musicians here on the site.
Thanks all and peace,
