Sorry for skipping updating last sunday, but I was feeling off last week. Was feeling real drowsy and slept more than I was awake. I'm back to my normal self now again though!
I think I've pretty much finished all of the animation stuff for Zu&Jo's part. I should now get into the technical stuff, like making sure animations play properly, balance out numbers and stuff, lipsync and do sound editing... Not really the most exciting stuff. But it's gotta be done, so I shall begin getting into that tomorrow!
Been sketching n' stuff, but I have not finished much yet, since I'm waiting response from commissioners before I finalize things.
I do however, have this: Pick Your Poison, fan art for Sinsigat.
Not much else to add today, that I can think of... So ya, next time.
A lot of stuff today, for sure.
I'm still making progress on the Zu&Jo part. Got most of the mouth stuff done, so it'll be done soon.
After that remains making a bunch of other animation details. It doesn't feel like there's a lot left, but there's gonna be a lot of testing and tweaking included... So who knows.
After being a mostly snowless winter, there suddenly came in a whole bunch yesterday. Feels a bit late... Just like this update, I guess. I'm really bad at getting these done on sunday nights, but I always am too busy or tired to write 'em. Blahgh.
I did finish up those animations, once I got into the groove again it went smoother than I expected. Now, I return to making mouth animations... Jo needs to get some expressions made. Was thinking of streaming some today, but it got real late all of a sudden, so I'll save it for tomorrow.
Have some drawings I finished instead! A Different Kind of Wrecking Game, I am always skeptical of myself when drawing characters from a different art style... Taking Action, a request from here on RC.se. If you're still around, this one is for you! Catching Up, Trixie has a revelation.
Going back and trying to fix, edit or making new animations with old assets isn't always easy - after some time you've forgotten the flow you were going through when making it, and you sort of have to re-discover the efficiency you had at the time when everything was still in basic mode. This is what I've been attempting to do, and I've snail paced my way through one of the animations I wasn't happy with. Only three left to go. I sure hope I don't need to do more... Getting through the miscellaneous small details is what I'd like to do next, but eh. Hopefully I'll get through these fast enough.
Anyway, here's a commissioned comic page: The Breeding Deal, Zu strikes a deal with a professional breeder.
I've also attempted to make a map of Granköping. I kinda messed up the numbering on it a little, but the jist of it should still be understandable. It could probably use some further work, but it's good as a base, I think.
That's all I had for today!
I've been going around VA hunting for a voice for Zara, since the old one didn't wanna do the role anymore. But the last couple of VAs that were interested in doing it, they ghost me after a while, for no apparent reason. Very frustrating.
I've mainly got some updates to character art and such today, because most of the other stuff I've been doing is just progress on flash and arts. I'm currently waiting on some voice clips before I can continue doing mouth stuff, though. But I want to redo some animations that didn't look very good in action, so... I gotta make the animation twice now for both Zu and Jo :C
Well, anyway, I've updated some bios - Mikaela's is the most noticeable since I kinda rewrote a lot of her backstory. It's hopefully better than before, but I'm open to hear some feedback on it as well. Writing is hard. Psycho Girl's Character Page
And here are some of the side characters updated for readability and the funny stats I made.
Spent the last two weekends touching up Lollo and Psycho Girl's profile images and summaries!
I also updated Psycho Girl's backstory and some other stuff about her - she's now a mute instead of just choosing not to speak. I'm not quite done with the changes to her bio though, but it'll probably be done soon.
I've finished up both Zu and Johanna's eye animations, woo!
Now I gotta make their mouth animations! They can share phoneme animations, but they'll have unique expressions, so I gotta plan out all that before I begin!
Still awaiting recordings from VAs though, I hope I hear back from them soon.
Been sketching some stuff too, so perhaps I'll have some drawings to show off for next update, we shall see!
I try to get a few hours of progress streaming in every day from monday to friday. Currently working on Johanna's eye animations, I'd say I'm around halfway done with 'em. They have unique eye expressions, but they'll probably share phoneme animations, no reason to create double the amount of those. I'll give 'em different static mouths though, smiles and such. Reminder: I stream here on Picarto!
Huh. Well, I don't really have a lot else to say... So... See ya either on sunday or in stream chat if you can make it. Time zones and such probably makes it hard for some to watch.
For me, it feels like I'm just preparing things perpetually. I haven't gotten back to actually animating anything yet, there are so many other things to take care of as well. Right now I'm trying to sort of audio stuff of various kinds.
I made an effort this week to finish up a comic I've had laying around for a really long time. That's what this update is all about, so I hope you'll like it.
Hope you all had a nice New Year's Eve! I spent mine with a bunch of friends, and it was generally pleasant! Kinda needed the next day just to wind down from all the social interaction... Not used to that all that much. But things are settling down back to normal so it's time to get back into things again!
So, I haven't really been able to draw or such lately, but I do still have some things here for today's update!
First up is Rock n' Raz 16, which you can watch here on youtube. Guess you can't really view it in the embed due to uh... Well, it'll become apparent once you view it.
I should really find an alternate place to upload these to... In the future, I want to just be able to post 'em here on site too!
And for those who are interested in what my plans are for the new year, well... I'll try to go through my plans real quick here right now.
First, I've made a new to-draw list. It turned out quite long once again, due to many interesting commissions and requests being sent my way! Currently, I'm working on finishing a 3 page comic that's been delayed for way too long.
If you're interested in what the new list looks like, you can skim through it below here! 1. Rabbit boy Richard "Dick" fucking, cuminflating and impregnating Zu
2. Dickgirl buttfucking Zu
3. Dickgirl Zu dominated by Bunny
4. The catgirls dressed as high heel whores
5. Fat Ass Zu - "Zu's Butt Examination" continuation
6. Ran getting swallowed and bred by an alien tentacle plant & horses, leading to more plants spawning, swallowing more girls
7. Trixie's Cucking Session Ending
8. Kurumi - Vampire Girl from PC98 Lotus Land Story
9. Jungle Story 2 - Ellie
[Locked] Jungle Story 3 - Zu & Sixten
10. Goth Ellie and Bimbo Zu getting blacked
A. Zara VS Soccer fans gangbang
B. Clown Zara + Bonus "Blacked Zara"
C. Housekeeper Matilda getting impregnated
D. Blacked Marching Band Trio - Jenny, Jilly & Jonna + Bonus "Blacked Johanna"
E. Goth bitch Ashley Schiumeat getting horse dicked
F. Ellie Nelson DP'd by Goat brothers + Bonus "Goat bros & Zu Xmas DP"
G. Sofi's pantyshot photo
H. Sleeping Booty Zu - 100 years of buttsex with a sleeping, unaging Zu + Bonus "Zu's Butt in a Box"
I. Beleth cuminflating and impregnating the Scarlet Sisters
J. Ruby turned public cumdump on the beach
It's numbered weirdly because I'm also using this as a poll on my discord server, and there's only so many number emotes availible... And yes, I had to condense it to fit the max reaction limit as well.
But yeah, I'm keeping up the polling thing to decide what on the list I should draw next. I find it fun and engaging.
I'll also continue working on the Zu&Jo part! Perhaps I'll return to doing some streaming again, couldn't really do that the last couple of months since testing the game and getting it ready for release isn't really a streaming friendly process.
There are also a bunch of other minor things that I won't bother mentioning, but that I still have to do, blegh.
Thanks for all the feedback on the HHHW release, by the way! It's unfortunate that there are so many people who are unable to play them, but we're gonna look at your error reports and see what we can do with 'em. We want the majority of people to be able to play it, after all!
Also unfortunate is that the whole being unable to play it thing has been the main topic, so not a lot of feedback on the flash itself has actually been posted or discussed! But I am grateful for the little we did get and we'll do changes where we can. A lot of people do ask for things that just aren't possible to change or add, so you're always gonna disappoint somebody. But that's limitations for ya. I'm just one guy doing all of the art and animations, after all.
Mm, I think that's all I wanted to say. We'll see what 2022 has in store for us, ye? Good night for now!
