Right now I'm finishing finalizing the graphic novel version of episode 2 of Little BIg Apocalypse . It's 60 pages. At the same time, I'm also animating the second episode, I'm at the 3 minute mark with quite a bit to go but I've been working pretty quickly too.
I'm still not sure if I want to turn Little Big Apocalypse into a "webtoon" or whatever, it would mean I'd have to convert all the hand-drawn frames into computer-drawn stuff.. which just seems like another colossal task on top of the 60 fucking pages I just drew.
I once read that mangaka's usually have very bad social lives. It's not because they are nerds, or anti-social, but it's because they become so obsessed with their craft that they'd rather just spend all day drawing in their fantasy world. Hmm maybe that is anti-social. I can't lie, I wish I could do the same thing, a lot of times I wonder why I even bother, but this newest project has got me excited. I work a ton and then I come home and work on LBA, I keep thinking it's dumb but whatever, I've been animating since I was young and it's fun. If I ever do "make it" in any sort of way in the future, it will be interesting to see people's reaction to my work.
Look for Little Big Apocalypse in 2-3 weeks and with some crazy cinematic scenes.
Man, drawing stuff is time-consuming. I've been working on the second episode of little big apocalypse for the last few weeks.. but god damn, doing a "graphic novel" (manga) version of it sure is time-consuming.
Luckily the the first chapter of the graphic novel is now done. On top of that, the first 2 minutes of the episode are done.
It's going to impress people, I'm not cutting any corners, I feel like LIttle Big Apocalypse could really become popular if I do it the right way.
Little Big Apocalypse, episode 2, will be out in 2-3 weeks. I'm thinking I might attach a Reboot 13 trailer if I can get it done fast enough, guess we'll see.
If you have a PS3 and LIttle Big Planet 2, check PSN Jon Martin, because I'm also doing another series on Little Big Planet called Siberius. It's pretty bizarre and is connected to both Reboot and Little Big Apocalypse.
If I can pull off the story ideas I have in my head, people's heads will spin... O_O
Since I'm extending Little Big Apocalypse, I have to do storyboards.. but I decided to take the opportunity to do them as manga, so then I have both a manga and an animation. I'm not sure if I'm going to release it before or after the animation (little big apocalypse: episode 2) because I don't know if I want to ruin what happens before the animation comes out.
Here's a capture from the first few pages (there are 42)
I really need to get a scanner... I had to use my cellphone to import these pics -_- but im friggin broke. SO broke my website is down right now because I can't pay for the bandwidth. Yippie.. I'm clearly on the right path! (/sarcasm)
I've been working on Little Big Apocalypse. Originally, I was just going to do a recap of what happens inside the complex but ... now I see I have to go through it episode by episode. This adds about 9 episodes that I have to finish o_O. I'm excited though, I have some really crazy ideas.
I'm also working on Reboot 13... the final episode.. yikes. The ending will be something really memorable... and it involves filming me.
Well, LBA 2 should be here in a month or so, so get excited :P
Today is my birthday! I am now 25 years old! Woo hoo I haven't died yet! Clearly, a reason to celebrate.
Not only that but it's now 2011, one year before the supposed mayan doomsday, so, perhaps, this is all our last year on earth...and newgrounds.
Finally, I just released the first episode of Little Big Apocalypse. I was hoping to get in the top 5 for my bday... But too many talented people. Ah well. There is always the next episode :D
Happy New Years!
Enjoy the holidays everybody, I'm taking a little break from updates. Things are going pretty good and I'm happy with the performance of Reboot 11 and 12 :D
The new Reboot website is finally up.. it's a more organized way to watch the series.
The site is set up like a DVD/Manga. I have all the videos converted to ipad/iphone and I'm working on connecting them tonight. So if you have a new ipad or iphone xmas morning, watch Reboot :O in glorious full-screen with no slow-down.
Next up? Since I have 110 minutes of cartoon, I'm thinking of combining it all into a movie. I'm just trying to figure out what scenes I would have to add, on top of this next episode.
Well, I'm off to work on Reboot 13 -_- Bye!
Lots of hard work.. finally coming to a close.
I can finally breath a sigh of relief.. until episode 13.
Please check out episode 12! It has a special surprise at the end for Dreamcast fans like myself XD
