100 FANS - - Teaser trailer!

2017-06-17 02:33:57 by CrabbWalker

Hiya NG,

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 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)

5 MORE TIL 100 FANS!!!!

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,


HUGE Animation update :D

Hey NGers!

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,


Hi fans and the whole NG bunch!

Going live soon at 10:45 AM EST! I've been postponing work on this episode, but now it's time to get back into high gear!!!


Live on Twitch 7PM EST!

Hey NG fans!

The title is the description XD 

Will be animating for several hours, probably til midnight who knows! Got a couple minutes then stop by ;)


Testing out Twitch! Animating for the masses oh yeah

Episode 2 collage update :D

2016-04-11 02:40:44 by CrabbWalker

Sup guys, CrabbWalker here with yet another entry!

I thought I'd post some of my updates to where I'm at with the 2nd episode. It's looking pretty good. As of now, I've reached scene 28, and all the scenes beforehand range between finished to still in an animatic state. I have about 60+ scenes altogether (ooh fun) so in order to not kill off what little presence I have, I'll post more speed paintings, practice animation GIFs, and try to stay updated here at least monthly. Thanks much guys, and again, if you haven't seen the first episode of Nami (NG) or here (YT), check it out! Peace and love NG.


Hey NG and fans!

Although I have been active on NG commenting on people's awesome work, I haven't been as active with updating you guys on anything, so's a sneek peek from me to you guys XD


The 2nd episode of Nami has been quite a weary process, and underestimated how long it is going to take. Luckily, I do everything in moderation, so it is always progressing. I decided to dress up a keyframe and add some effects as to how this particular scene would be portrayed!

I've been collaborating locally in my town as well with authors, and got a couple new pics I'm going to post here shortly! Possibly a trailer animation for one of my clients as well :D

I tweet daily, so if you feel the need to stalk my every move, I won't stop ya XD

If you haven't seen the first episode of Nami, then hurry up and watch it lol. Got it posted here and on my YouTube channel.

Will try to update a little more regularly, thanks NG'ers!
