November Monthly Blog Update! I'm so excited with the way everything's been going! I've been drawing and best of all, ANIMATING a LOT more! It's a wonderful cycle and I highly encourage ANY artist who may be stuck in any kind of creative rut- to just create what makes you happy! I know it sounds hard, but sometimes you have to push yourself out of the creative block cycle and just start, without any limitations, and then it pushes you back in the flow!
For me, right now watching other people's storyboard animatics have been inspiring me. The animator in me says "you should animate this and bring it to life!" and that's what happens. The other thing that inspires me is creating Fan Art. For example, I love Muse, My Little Pony, Doctor Who, Dr. Horrible, Avatar and so much more, so I've just been drawing and animating those types of things for fun!
Here's a small sample of one of the animations I'm working on. It's a cross between some of my favorite things, and it allows me to practice. Lip Sync, Movements, and Flash Puppets. I'm so fascinated with the way MLP Puppets are built and I am able to use that knowledge and apply it to my own animations. It's all a constant learning experience! You can view these & more all on my Youtube Channel.
Oh yeah! I started babbling about Animation, when I forgot to mention (though if you've been around my website, you know) I've updated my website! Hooray! That means new stuff in all my galleries! Not only that, but I've also updated my Twitter, Facebook & Youtube Channel. I'm active on Twitter the most @Kitsulie, since I can post anything and everything from all my networks! I've also organized my Youtube, and I'm becoming active again back on my Kitsulie Facebook Fan Page. You remember? I had Motivational Mondays, Trivia Tuesdays, Wacky Wednesdays, Throwback Thursdays, and Fan Friday! That's starting back up because I want to share the love & joy of art & entertainment with everyone! As far as Youtube goes, I created a new channel intro & outro, as well as organized all my Flash Animations into a playlist so they're easier to find! I'm on my way to becoming a real YouTuber! Hot Diggety!
On my Channel Intro- It's the Instrumental of Panic Station by Muse
On My Channel Outro- It's my cat, Dot. Yes, that's her real meow! Silly kitty!
You can see the intro/outro on the clip above. Also, I made my cartoon avatar have pink hair. Since IRL I change my hair color a lot (blond to red to brown) I figured my animated self could have Pink Hair. Maybe it's redundant with my pink goggles, but whatever, Pink is cool. (Orange is my favorite color though!) Hence why my new logo/branding is now Pink & Orange! I should have a new Demo Reel up by the end of the year, too!
Ah yes, Muse the Animated Series! I know, you've been hearing about it, and we've been talking about it ever since the first episode aired! What's been going on? Is there a due date? What about Dom's Eyes? (yes, they're the correct color now!)
Yes, we ARE working on Muse the Animated Series, Episode 2, so yay!
The thing is, both Takeabow19 and I both had to take a little break after the first episode. Jobs, bills, other projects, life, you know how it goes!
We started back up on Episode 2 a little while ago and it's coming along great! I can't say too much, as we DO want to leave it as a big surprise for when we finally premiere the episode, just like last time!
We haven't set a due date quite yet. As with everything being uncertain, we don't want to give everyone a due date and then something come up and we end up being late. So basically look at it as a surprise waiting to happen!
Although, I have heard little birds telling me there may be something special coming soon though. In the meantime, in between animating scenes for the episode I'll do my best to create Muse-related content as well! I've already got a few cartoonized photos of the guys. As you all know, since they've been working on their new album they have been a lot more active on Instagram. Lucky us!
So that's what's been going on! I hope you enjoyed reading this and checking out all the new updates! Thanks for stopping by and as always:
Blue Skies! Enjoy the Chaos & Stay TOONed!
