My next cartoon is Lunar Kicks. It's about a man on the moon who works as a mechanic. Will be about 2 minutes.
Storyboards began in June. I spent that time taking photographs and finding references online to create the landscape and machinery of the world. The board went through 2 drafts and was completed by the end of July.
I started animation in August, and have about 1 minute and 20 seconds done as of writing this. It feels like I've been working on this for longer, but really I've only been animating for 3 months, which isn't so bad I suppose! You know I spent 8 months on Duncan & Jones? What? I can't remember any of that. What am I doing man? Wha-
I'm at the phase of this project where I've become hopeless and miserable about everything. It happens every time. Kicking myself in the foot for how much damn work I gave myself in the boards. But it's this pain that I know will make it worth it. I'm giving this cartoon everything I've got and as long as I'm making the kind of animation I want to see on Newgrounds, I'll sleep fine. It's gonna rock harder than anything I've made before AS USUAL so don't worry.
This project has been worked on for 5 months yet I only decided on an ending a few days ago! I've never shooken up my approaches and methods for a cartoon as much as I have with this one so hopefully it's pretty different than most anything I've made before. Things have been stressful lately, more than usual. Relaxing for me feels like trying to light a cigarette in the rain. I can never quite do it right.
I'm anxious, stressed and STILL CATCHING FEELINGS FOR LESBIANS!! Can you tell I'm an animator??
I've taken on a lot of work, including illustrating a children's book which should be coming out sometime in November. I'm a mess right now but if I survive this month I probably won't go insane. I got that Netflix Cowboy Bebop to look forward to as well god dayum uhh can you say kino??
I'm tired man. Thank you dearly everyone for lookin at my dumb shit. I hope my next cartoon will inspire you. Please keep making the things YOU want to see on Newgrounds and stay true to what you think is cool. Okay?
