Lost Mad Soul
My intent is to have this thread be a development log, of sorts, and behind the scenes look at the now long overschedule animated project "Falling Stars: Chronicles of the Void" Which I began almost 20 years ago. Here I will post shots of elements and projects related to this project that are various stages of work. Some production stills. VFX breakdown shots. I will also post notes and ideas, and the occasional ramblings. Some of what I post will be in an almost tutorial fashion or discussion on theory. I will also post animation tests and character designs and tests. Even though I am using a lot or premade commercial content, I also need to do a lot of kitbashing, and especially texture work, for the various aspects of the project. There is a lot of work I do that never gets seen by anyone because it is just stages to a finished project. I do not want to clutter up the regular image posting threads with a lot of Works in Progress, or unfinished test shots, so my intent is to use this thread to show these. I will still post my finished ship and vehicle builds, character promos, and artistic renders related to this project in other theads, but the work in this thread will be a lot more raw and unfinished in nature.
Of course, fellow Hivewire forum goers and members are welcome to pop in, make comments, and discuss what I post here. Though keep in mind, my hope is to...someday anyway...see enough animation in this project finished to actually publish it. Right now my greatest obstacle is a lack of voice talent to help with dialogue, so I am limiting what is animated to sections with limited or no dialogue by any of the main characters.
