So my primary tool for animation is FUBAR. My 3 year old laptop finally gave up the ghost. I'm currently using my old laptop from waaaaay back when the first VGCats cartoon I did was fresh. Unfortunately I do not have Adobe Suite on this computer so I'm unable to continue work on Doctor Whooves for the time being. I plan to either buy a new computer or have my best buddy build me one. Either way I'm planning to finish at least the first part of Frostbite (episode 4 of Doctor Whooves) by early December.


I'm so close to this release, you don't even know! It's like tripping several steps away from the finish line in a sack race!

If all goes well, I should have a Doctor Whooves episode released this year. Or something.

Please forgive the terrible art as it's just a placeholder for my rigs. Areas that have the camera stationary for longer than 4 seconds are going to be moved a bit during final animation.


Anything to add or change would be awesomely appreciated by a comment.

I'm working on a fun little thing for my 40,000 subscriber video and would like a little vocal help. I'm looking for anyone interested in singing a pony rendition of "Ants Go Marching" with altered lyrics and such. If you want to lend your voice, click the links for lyrics and music and have fun singing. Send me a note here on Deviantart with a link to your audio file(s) so I can plug them in with the music. Make sure any audio files you send are only your voice (no backtrack or background noise) and put the name you want to be credited as in the file name.

Everyone involved will be credited in the video. I may even send a link to the animation I've managed to complete for the project (privately shared).


Lyrics: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30…

Backtrack: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30…

Example song: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30… (may not match the lyrics document, this is my error)

(note, the example was recorded before I started animating and will be re-recorded. The lyrics document was rewritten a couple times, but is now finalized)

I'll update the journal if there are any confusing details I haven't mentioned.

Here's a small preview of what I've managed to do in several months of picking at it. There's been a couple of false starts, but I'm now finding my motivation again and plowing through before I lose it again. Bear in mind that this is still in progress. I'm trying a new method of doing things, starting with body animation, then background animation, background characters, and finally lip sync. I may outsource to volunteers to help with the lip sync since it's such a chore to do (with my method anyway).

If I grind away at this for 4 hours a day, 5 days a week, I may be able to get the majority of the first half done in a month. I'm splitting this 20 minute episode up into two parts. Part one will have the musical number and part two will have the action. :icontoxicthundercloud: is helping as much as he can while working on his own projects and :icondeftwise-zero: has already completed most of the backgrounds needed.

Drop in any suggestions for improvement in the comments. If you're bored, perhaps you can draw up an animatic for the musical part and upload it to youtube. It'd help a huge amount.

Changes:
-Added a preloader
-Finished the body animation
-Did the background movements

I'm a baker at a local donut shop with an animation hobby.

Currently thinking of starting my own "ask pony" tumblr but I think a bit more practice is in order.

May even do commission work for OCs and stuff. Who knows?

Favourite genre of music: Rock (soft, classic, hard)
Favourite cartoon character: Cheerilee; Sweetie Belle

Hello, 
Someone in charge of making the official background ponies for mlp must have really liked your Tom Neighrer video because a pony that has a very close resemblance to him appeared in today's episode "Trade Ya".
