Winning The Animation Tournament, Time Havoc And Rest Is Next
After all the pain, blood and sweat "dueling" in this year's Hyun's Dojo Duel Animation Tournament, I finally won! My duelist, Time Havoc is officially the champion and he is now part of Hyun's Dojo lore as a wanted criminal. This was what the Dojo committee told me after the results were announced. Sounds interesting, doesn't it?
If you guys have been wondering, Time Havoc and Tick Bender are two different individuals. Time Havoc is like Tick's evil clone if you will. If you have noticed, they are not completely identical.
So now that the tournament is over, I will be going back to working on Super Hero Clock episode 2. But before I do that, I'm going to get some rest because I NEED it. The tournament lasted for about 7 months when it was supposed to last only about 4 because there had to be some time extensions for a couple of rounds. A lot of the contestants needed more time to finish their entries and the Dojo didn't want them to forfeit. Throughout the tournament, I had to complete 4 animations, ranging from 30 seconds to 1 minute in length, each within about a month's or so period of time. In short, I finished making one animation in about a month for four times
. I have never met such tight deadlines and honestly, it was hell. During the rounds of the tournament, all I did was practically eat, sleep, animate, repeat. No social media, no TV. I didn't even get out of the house. I only did those in between rounds when judging was going on but there still wasn't much time to recuperate from the stress.
I could jump straight back to SHC but it could be life-threatening. I know we all miss SHC but for me right now health is priority. Besides that, I've missed a lot during the tournament and there is much catching up to do. I don't know how much time I will take to rest up because I really over-stressed my body during the tourney. But as soon as I get better and am ready to start working on SHC episode 2 part 4, I'll be sure to drop a line here or on Facebook and Twitter.
Guess that's pretty much everything about the tourney (and practically this whole year). Alright, back to sleep!
