Kicking Off The New Year With SHC Episode 2 Part 4 Production!

Posted on January 13, 2018

Happy New Year.... well half of January is almost gone but anyways, I've started working on SHC episode 2 part 4! Actually character animation was already done in December last year in between playing Overwatch and rest. After New Year's day, I jumped straight into compositing the scenes and shots. About 10 days later, which is right before the time of typing this post, all the scene compositions are done! Next up will be backgrounds... that might take a while.

Progress (I think) will be slow this year because the rest and time off after the tournament last year wasn't quite enough although it was a long and good one. I had a lot of catching up to do on things I missed throughout the tourney alongside some petty problems to take care of and of course ep2 part 4 character animation. My right hand still hurts and I'm currently working on the computer with my left hand. It's most likely RSI due to using the computer mouse too much. I could blame myself for over-playing Overwatch but then it could also be because I work on the computer too much. Speaking of my work, when March 2018 comes, it marks that I have been an animator for 10 years, not counting the one-year hiatus I had back in 2009... so that would be 10 years of muscle stress - something impossible to heal in just a couple of months.

This year is gonna be rough. While I have to rest more often, I'll try to at least finish up ep 2 part 4. Here are WIP screenshots. Nothing much but.. ya. Gonna go get some rest.
