|Part of our Taffetas flow-chart|
Things are going pretty good for Taffetas research. I finished some books relevant to our new pitch and our upcoming indie-production of the first episode(s) in a frantic attempt to better myself as a producer, director, concept artist, animator, etc. so as to live up to my expectations for the project. It's a tough thing getting through because I find myself sometimes procrastinating out of sheer fear of the task that lies before me (not the reading, but the responsibilities I have to making Taffetas a success and true to our artistic vision!).
All the while, Yesenia and I have also been researching mythology and pitching and are slowly working our way through finalizing details on Season 1 for our pitch book which has been an unexpected snag in my original let's-get-this-done-in-a-month schedule. We have a pretty nifty thing going on though in that we are basing the story of Taffetas to the hero's journey, but told through an interpersonal tale, from the female perspective.
Also there's kissing.
Meanwhile, I've started up a small 5 second animation challenge where I'm pushing myself in Flash with some slightly tweaked, personally untested methods of how I usually go about animating. In the end, this animation will also be my ID and icon for my updated Deviantart presence.
I'm also trying to finish that forest sprite sketch to a cleaned up illustration...
