The Uses My Tablet Has Been Put To

2009-12-07 09:00:49 by MRat

So it has been nearly a year since Tom, that nice fellow, sent me a shiny new tablet. Yet, I've nothing more than some meagre doodlings in the Art Portal to show for it.

This isn't to say, however, that I haven't been using the fucker like there's no tomorrow. So many ideas, so many, many frames, have passed beneath its gentle caress.

Finally, this Thursday, I shall have something to show for it. No, it is not something large, or even particularly exciting. I won't spoil it though, because it will be a lot of fun, I think.

But if this little Thursday treat isn't huge, where DID the last year go, and why isn't THAT what you'll all be seeing?

Well let me say this. Somewhere, hidden in the terrible depths of my older days as an animator on this account, you'll find my original attempt at producing the pilot episode for a very personal, very large, and very ambitious animated series exclusively for NewGrounds entitled Spider. I had abadonned the whole project quite quickly when I realized I just wasn't that good.

It's been consistently creeping its wee way into my brain this past year, and in the process has received a massive overhaul in terms of plot, tone, and central themes. It has also received a wonderful face lift. I find I can actually draw now. Not well, but I can do it.

Still, the new Spider remains in the very early developmental stages. Have there been test animations? Certainly, and some even turned out well. Have some scripts been written? Well, yes, some have. Heck, there's even some of the original score finding its way on to a staff. But it's all me fiddling at this point. I've promised myself I'm not going to leap into this one blindfolded and then complain when the pool's filled with piranahs.

So there it is, for the 2 of you who will read this. Hopefully a little interest has been perked, and hopefully I'll not be so scorned about the lack of content I've produced. Things ARE coming, but boy can it be a slow process when you care just a little too much about the quality of your work.
