Wow, you are super organized. I like it! The spreadsheet is a fantastic idea.
How do you like Krita and Gimp? I've never used either (well, I used Gimp maybe for 10 minutes in high school I guess). I'm trying to look into using different software as well.
Anyway, sweet work, and good luck finishing it up. I'm sure it will turn out great.

Thank you! I actually got the spreadsheet idea from another animation studio I'm very fond of. If you do a lot of digital painting, then I'd recommend Krita two-fold over Photoshop. I use GIMP mostly for photo editing/ manipulation. It's not better then PS but they recently updated the UI, and it looks more clean than previous iterations. Both Krita and GIMP are both very lightweight, open-source (free!) programs, and never had either of them crash on me so far :D
Well, that seals the deal. I'll try them out. I'm trying to avoid Adobe Cloud if possible -- I currently use Macromedia Flash 8 which translated well to my new computer, but getting all my other programs on there has been a pain. But I'll definitely give these a shot now.
Thanks for taking the time to respond with that info!
No problem. The only thing I use from the cloud is Adobe Animate, which I pay 30 a month for (no contract)...so I spend like 200+ dollars a year on software total, which I net back easily from commissions and local work. I've heard some hellish stories concerning their contracts, which is an instant no-go. The licensing on it is pretty dumb as well. Have fun with the programs!
Looking forward to your future works, I do attend your streams and it's cool to watch you work.
See you next year.
Thanks bro, I really need to return the favor! Unfortunately, you seem to stream whenever I work. Happy New Year!
