LazyBrush is a great tool

I present with the greatest fill tool yet, The lazy Brush. If you're a TVPaint user then there's no reason why you shouldn't give this tool a go. It's helpful, solid, and very affordable. Here's a little demo:

Progress in mind mapping

Hello all,
Working solo on a project like this requires a lot of organizational skills which I'm not very well known for, so I use XMind to track of my assets and progress, and keep an eye on the bigger picture. I highly recommend it if you're working on a similar project. Here's my bigger picture so far.

Animation Clean up

The open screening night went very well. The audience (which was mostly other film makers) were following the story-line closely, and the ending raised a lot of questions and discussions afterwards which was real comforting and satisfying to me. I think I will plan another showing (for non film makers) in a later phase when all animatic parts are turned into rough animation and all backgrounds are ready and implemented.

This is one of the cleaned up shots onion skin.

Another Background done.

I noticed that I've been noodling the backgrounds way too much, especially when I took a step back and looked at the bigger picture, and that is to finish the short before I run out of juice. Here's my latest work.

That I learned 3

"Do things the hard way"
No puns here, there's a merit to doing things the longer harder way versus the easy "smart" way.

Production Video #4

This week I'm going to share the second part of my interview with Christina. She'll demo her digital painting process. I hope you find it as beneficial as I did.
