Working on a little something that probably won't see the light of day for many moons (I'm talking late next year *nudge**nudge*). It's in extremely early stages so far, so I couldn't show much, even if I wanted to. All you need to know is:
A) It's being made.
B) It's Madness-related.
C) It's my last Madness-related piece.
D) Here's a preview.
I've been absent from the Madness fan animation scene for quite some time. And while moving on with projects like Stainville has been a great adventure in terms of exploring animation and developing my own sense of style, working with Madness sprites always fills me with nostalgia and feels very comfortable and familiar to me. Clicking and dragging and mashing the f6 button is a great release after animating hours of painstaking frame-by-frame drawings. Even though my last submission was not a serious attempt at animating (yet, a fitting response to all users badgering me to finish the HotS series), it was nice to doodle up sprites and make them move - create a live atmosphere from scratch.
So, while I was riding that little high that was HotS 2.2, I opened up Flash again and decided to work on a new project, which I plan to submit alongside the one I mentioned at the top of this post. It's a project that I planned to finish a long time ago, but never got around to for a number of reasons. And, if there's any anticipation built for my next Madness toon, this one probably holds the majority of it.
How's about for MD2015 I hit you with some R3 action?
P.S. Vote for Stainville 4 for Monthly Best for September!
