Transport, Worry, Scared

The next page of "The Galactic Train!"

Transport, Worry, and Scared...

...were the next 3 Inktober prompts.

Looks like that rocking and rollin' on the train in the previous page was a big ole ka-blooey. Looks like one of the passenger cars exploded causing our space train to split apart and fall into the gravitational well of the planet below them. Who knows what planet that is or what's on it.

If you follow my Instagram you might know!

"Is Everyone Okay in here?" Conductor Bonesy is always concerned for the well being of his passengers.

"Uh...No.!" Is Kamiko's response. What are they all looking at?

What will happen next?

Find out next week on "The Galactic Train!"

The Graphic Novel Proof

Towards the end of last week, I ordered a physical proof of This Mortal Coil: The Rabbit and the Moon and I'm waiting for it to get back to me. I'm eager to see how the pages turned out and pray that it wasn't all borked up (by me).

Youtube Videos

I'm still trying to figure out the nuts and bolts of how I will do videos.

It's easy for me to say I will do videos for the Tube of You, but I don't know how logistically I will pull that off and do so in a decent way.

Plus, I think I look terrible on camera. It's slowing down the effort, but it's not stopping me completely from doing it.

I know, I can just turn my iPhone on me and start recording, but the lighting where I'm at looks terrible, so I may have to invest in some LED lights. I was also testing out my kitchen as a way to film myself in a decently lit area.

I'm also investigating what else I can do with Blender in terms of editing videos. It looks easy for me to shoot via iPhone and download the contents to my Surface Pro and edit splice everything together with Blender. I wouldn't be coloring correcting/grading anything. It would be very basic, but hey, better than nothing.

I was exploring doing some motion graphics as well and I do understand how the 3D scenes are referenced on the video timeline much better now. What I'd like to do is something news-like where I talk and in the corner I can display images and what not. I realize there are probably a bunch of ways I can do this including scaling images, but it's good to see that's all available to me in Blender.

There's also the fact that I'm heading out for Christmas, so... it maybe the new year or if I can find time at my parent's place.

I want to do a video of the Lolita Fashion Coloring Book for Adults for the press kit site and also a blog post that goes over it as an overview.

There's also some other video projects like a Patreon video and a follow up to my animating in Manga Studio video.

That's all for now, see you next week!
