Oh boy...... We got a lot to discuss and so little time....
Okay, first of all, I'm gonna get straight to what most of my very small amount of fans are probably wondering:
Is Kirbies of the Alternate Dimension: The YouTube Series even coming?
The answer: YES.
The real question you should be asking is "WHEN?"
And the answer to that is...... I don't know.
You see, I originally planned to release the first episode of Kirbies of the Alternate Dimension before the end of 2014, but as you can see, that didn't turn out like I planned for a number of reasons:
Please understand that I am still in school.
I am only a high school student, so I'm not super amazing cartoon animator yet. I really want to be, and I really do want to do this series, but I feel disappointed to say that, since school is getting in the way of things lately, I haven't been able to do any of it. At all. Literally. All I have of Kirbies of the Alternate Dimension right now is about 2 seconds. And that took me almost an hour to animate. Animation is not easy, people. Especially not FRAME-BY-FRAME animation. I'll likely do a lot of animation for the series during the summer.
Second, I'm simply not quite sure how I want to go about it yet.
I've written the basis for the entire series, but that doesn't mean I'm exactly sure how I want each scene to play out. I still haven't cast voices for each of the characters yet, and I'm not ready to start doing so. I think I should actually animate the dang thing before I cast voice actors. I want the scenes to look good, and currently, with my skill, that's not the easiest thing to do.
There are a lot of other things I've been trying to focus on lately.
There are probably none of you out there that know this, but I am a novelist.... Well, I'm unpublished... But I still write novels! And that's one of the main things I'd like to focus on for now. Another thing would be... Um... My life. Seriously, guys. Animation takes a lot of time out of one's schedule. Especially with a really crappy program like Flash Professional. Also, I'm getting close to going to college, so I'm thinking about that a lot. I plan on majoring in computer science. So, just let me focus on these things for now.
I promise that I WILL do Kirbies of the Alternate Dimension as a YouTube series.... I'm just not sure when. It may be late this year, it may be next year. We don't know. I don't know.
Second Item of Business: Am I Finished With Smackjeeves?
The answer to that question is a big NO. I don't want to quit making web comics. But, I'm moving up from sprite comics in order to make manga comics.
My two upcoming comics are known as "Pokemon: ORAS Blaze" and "Pokemon: ORAS Torrent". They are not sprite comics. They are hand-drawn.
I promise to be more active. However, I probably won't be much more active.
So, give me some time before I'm ready for KAD. And stay turned for my new comic in the meantime.
