So it turns out I wasn't quite able to make the switch to Toon Boom (mainly due to lack of finances). As such, I really haven't been able to work on this project as of late.

I've been listening to the music which inspired me to start this in the first place, and I got to thinking I should update you all on my status. I'm considering either going back to Flash or giving OpenToonz another shot. However, before I do, I will likely re-write the script again.

I've been rather inactive lately, and I suspect I will continue to be so for a while going forward, so I will continue to ask only that you all have patience. That said, I still will be checking back to see if anyone leaves me a message.

Merry Xmas folks, thought I'd leave a little update here again.

I've switched platforms once more from OpenToonz to Toon Boom Harmony. The former was giving me issues, and a benefactor insists that using a more professional suite would be a better idea for my future prospecting. Harmony itself, while quite expensive compared to other tools, is very stable, much more similar to Flash (though more powerful) and should let me get the job done. I'll be learning how to use it over the coming weeks.

As for music, it seems nothing has come to me of late. Will have to try again later. Hope the weather is treating you all well.

As I continue to deal with side projects, the particulars of the script for my movie continue to change and evolve.

The story I have curated in my head for nearly 10 years is now almost unrecognizable from the original version. The only elements that remain are the two principal characters, and the general feel of the setting. Yes, I do fully suspect that this project will end up being feature length at least. How could it be any less, with all the setpieces that I have in mind?

Still, I am not yet at a place where I can devote my time fully to this project. I suspect before then, I will have a new album out. It should be here before the end of the year.

Because I don't trust Adobe anymore regarding support for Flash/Animate, I have decided to switch to a different animation program.

As it turns out, it wasn't very hard to find a suitable replacement in OpenToonz. For those unaware, OpenToonz is a free and open source animation toolkit based on the software that Studio Ghibli has been using to make their productions in more recent years.

I've been toying around with it a bit, and I already like a lot of its drawing elements much more than I did with Flash. Seems to work better with my tablet as well, strangely enough. Still, I will need to get more acquainted with it before I attempt any large projects using the software.

Before I begin work on the movie proper, I will probably attempt to create at least one short animation using OpenToonz as a warm up. If I do that, and it's any good, I will post it here.

Unfortunately, I've not been able to make much progress on this since my last post, as I've had other projects, and the movie itself continues to change forms.

I suspect I will be busy with a side project or two until at least the end of August. In September, I will see where I can go with the movie from there.

In the mean-time, if I draw anything worth showcasing regarding this project, I will post it here.

Expect another update in September at the very least.

For the longest time, it's been little more than pre-scripting, re-re-re-rewriting and thought-bubbling. Starting tomorrow, I will be drawing the first concept art pieces for it.

By August, I should be able to showcase some preliminary work. The movie is based on a very old animation I did back in 2009. If you dig through my favorites list, you should be able to find that cartoon (it's on a different account).

Now, realistically, this movie will likely take many years to complete, and I cannot pin down a definite release date. I'm not asking for your monetary support, only that you poke me if it seems too long between updates. I MUST get this done if I am to have any hope in continuing this path.

In the mean-time, I may or may not get an album out some time this year, but no promises on that.

Best regards,

-Fubbles

I am working on something rather large. I don't suspect it will be finished for at least another year. As such, expect less from this account until a further update can be made.

Will be out of town, away from the computer.

Hope to have more music out soon, though.

My current project has me far too embroiled.

There will be one tomorrow, as usual.
