10 days...

....And here I begin cleaning up scene 8 of 24. Yes, I'll have to clean up and colour multiple scenes a day to meet the April 4 deadline.
This is a shot of my Flash workspace as I go into clean up. My character colour palettes are in there for later colouring. Demeter isn't in this scene, but I use her eye green for Persephone's saffron strap.

Even though I didn't exactly do the same type of animation, I'm glad my experience at FatKat got me familiar with Flash. Who knows where I'd be right now if I decided to go traditional with pencil and paper....

ok back to work.

If the title doesn't show up properly (should look like Japanese characters), chances are you don't have Japanese text support installed. But I was practicing my basic Japanese skillz and translated Persephone's Flight into Japanese (Katakana is used for loan-words from other languages), which in English would read like 'Pasefonisu Furaito'.

For the latest "milestone" we had to prep a bunch of "promotional" items for our films, which is sorta awkward when you're "struggling" to finish. But it gives me an option to "throw" more stuff at my blog.

Persephone, I choose you! *throws

A poster and/or postcard. Those 2 birds, I stoned them

A still that gives you an idea of what I'm aiming for with my film. With only 3 weeks left, the cleanup is the area where I've got to cut the most corners, so my animation will be kinda sketchy. But I really want to have the 2 tones to my characters. 3 weeks, eh? wtf. We'll see.
