Well, if anybody actually reads this, you'd know that I have an issue with doing female figure work. Mainly because I suck at it... I mean, did you see Cammie in the last episode?! Anyway, on the last post, I mentioned that there's a shower scene that I'm dreading. It's severely kicking my ass. "But, Lee," you say ,"Why not just get online and look for nudie pics?" Well, perv. the reason is that I have specific poses that I need and I actually want to try to keep the "sexy aspect" out of it. Think about it, when you're in the shower, do you honestly pose like a friggin' playboy playmate? Well, I need a model. If anybody knows any females willing to pose for this, let me know. Nudity isn't necessary, though I do prefer it. IT'S NOT PORN, DAMMIT! Message me for details. thanks!
R1665: Just so you know, you'll be illustrating a minor argument between ___and ___.
3X: Cool. Been looking forward to ___ again.
R1665: You'll get your chance. Turns out ___ isn't happy with ___ on the team. ___forced him to recruit ___.
3X: Do I get to work with the whole team?
R1665: Eventually, though probably not all on the screen at once.
3X: That's cool.
R1665: Of course, they will be doing their arguing after ___ has left the room. It won't get heated but it'll get tense.
3X: Okay, I'll work that out.
R1665: Don't forget the shower scene. *Very important.*
3X: Lol! Nudity or just shy of?
R1665: Just shy of. Lot's of staple "shower shots." Facial, from the back, legs, feet, 3/4 sideways. You know, the works.
3X: Good boy.
R1665: No hentai, but enough to catch the horney male demographic!
3X: Aw, hell. (Rolls eyes.) I'll see what I can do.
R1665: Good boy.
3X: Jack ass.
Well, looks like we're going to finally meet the full team! Maybe... Don't know yet. ;) And if you horney males out there are good for christmas, I might throw in a nipple slip... Maybe... Doubtful though. I hate doing obligitory nude scenes.
Was looking through my flash drive and found some concept art from the last episode. Figured you guys might enjoy... You can find the others in my gallery.
While I know that it's not the BIG draw of VG Exiles, I will admit that the art aspect does have an impact on how soon it releases and it lends a huge hand to the story telling. So, to keep you guys up to speed on my end of the deal, I figured I'd start doing updates, myself. My computer progress was a bit hindered because of a hardware issue but this just leaves me more free time to perfect the hand drawn areas, which will be vastly improved over the last couple episodes.
R1665 has told me that he wants to go with a slightly different, more proffessional look to the story art on this episode. Wish I could go into more detail, but suffice to say that the initial idea of what the story was SUPPOSED to look like in the last two episodes will be more refined. I will say this; while I am working on my animation skills with my personal side project, I'm just not good enough yet. So, I really feel like I would be doing the fans a great disservice by trying to animate in this episode. But maybe some time in the future.
My hope for the look of the art in this episode will be much like the pages of 30 Days of Night, or if anybody has seen the Clash of The Gods series on History Channel. At least, that's what I'm hoping for. I'm still learning and implimenting as I go along. I do have a great amount of faith that my work in this episode will blow away my past attempts. Especially since the ideas being tossed between R1665 and myself are more up my alley!
I really wish I could show some progress, but unfortunately what I am currently working on would blow the whistle on some things that R1665 wants to keep hush hush. Just know that the issues that I had last time won't be such a problem this time around.
Also, I'd like to thank WaveChan for the tutorials that she had created on newgrounds. MASSIVE HELP!! When I get a chance, I'll post links for those of you that want to know an easier faster way of doing art editing in photoshop.
Anyway, just a taste of what's to come, I'll keep you guys posted. Until then, keep an eye on R1665 and myself for further updates!

Once again, Thanks WaveChan!
So, I've started production on my very first Flash project as an animator. I don't really plan on much animation happening considering that it's actually going to be a motion comic book series. right now I'm planning on a 20 episode arc and then we'll see what happens from there.

Be prepared to delve into the darkest depths of nightmares that you've long forgotten about. Be prepared to face monsters and demons from the deepest depths of Hell! Be ready to face a world of madness that many wish to deny and keep hidden forever. For this is the world of The Redemptionist.
Alright! VG Exiles Episode 2 is dropping August 4th at noon! R1665 and I have been slaving over this monster for a god awful long time to get this thing done and done right. I hope you enjoy it. It was fun to work on, even though it took friggin' FOREVER to get out! But, hey... So did Halo. Anyway, keep an eye out on R1665s page for the link...
