The Legend of Zebulon
Thank you Terkoiz and all who placed over me for making the flaws in my mindset apparent and giving me a reason to try harder. Truly ashamed that I've never put my all into an animation before. That is changing with this one. If it doesn't, I probably just quit animation lol. The odds are extremely low though, I'm getting too old for that nonsense
Zebulon, son of Vlayo(who has died)
, is now ruler of a hereditary monarch civilization in the year 3045. I kind of want this whole experience to be entirely a surprise, and see if I can properly convey the big picture through a relatively small portion of the story. There's a resistance, human population is low. Your mind can fill in the rest for now, and the animation will fill it with correct information later. The run time will probably be around 3-4 minutes, give or take. I also plan to stretch my background muscles well for this one.
All of October : Warming up and getting back in shape.
11/1 : Began brainstorming ideas.
11/4 : Settled on this idea. Began writing background story and coming up with characters. I want this animation to be solid in every aspect.
11/6 : Began feeling out the vibe I want to go for by doing some of the main menu.
11/10 : Finally got all my schoolwork done, now back with a clearer idea on how I want the animation to feel. Began storyboard, 30 seconds in.
11/18 : I've restarted the storyboard, as I've been trying to figure out storyboarding in general to get my idea across in an effective manner. I've never worked on something over 2 minutes you know, this past week figuring that out will pay off in the long run for a better quality animation, at least that's the hope. 50 seconds in on this version
~Best of luck to my opponents~
