Yayness, an animation, at last!
Novo running across a little stream pretty quickly... It's a clip from the third storyboard of my story "The Shadowtainted", (you can see it here: [link]), from about 9:20. He's got Abeo on his back, who is a mysterious stranger to him who is dying from being lost in the cold desert. Will he get her back in time and learn more about who she is and what she was doing in the blizzard of the cold desert, all by herself?
...We'll see ;)

I wanted to take a shot at water-effects, which was what took the most time with this one.. It was kinda hard, but fun :) I don't really like uploading unfinished business, but I thought I should show some sign of life just to assure you I'm Still Alive™. :music: ... :crazy:
I haven't been working much on storyboarding, unfortunately. I'm trying to get the script done for the voice-actors first. Also I've got so much to do for school (and I mean lots), I simply have to prioritise. Sorry about that, I really wish I had more time and resources to get this done faster...

Have fun with Novo who's hopelessly jumping across this stream, again and again and again, and be happy it's not you. Cat's don't fancy water that much, you know!

Animated entirely in Adobe Photoshop CS5, with a Wacom Bamboo, while watching "The Private Life of Plants" with David Attenborough and the movie "Sunshine", while drinking tea and eating way too much candy. Time used: approx. 4 hours. With an ever so slight fever. Good times!
