I was thinking about it even before I made the first episode- prolly shoulda listened to my gut but.


Hipster or emo?




sry the bottom picture is missing the extra shadow

Honestly....I like the long hair. Originally I was going to make him like that but then I thought he looked a bit like Light Yagami from Derp Note. Now I might switch it to give him that sexy korean drama actor hair.

Special shoutout to Rhett and Link for being the inspiration for this looolololololol

I made a sci fi detective noir thing. It's another drama/action thing. So if you're bored of parody and comedy...give it a whirl.

Thanks to all the people who help with my patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=102503

This is the first project that uses the new motion capture camera- well, the first released. Kagemusha ep 2 uses it but I'm still waiting on the last lines and have to clean up some stuff.

Thanks to CooliSushi who taught me about a cool program to make the movie look better and I also found some other techniques. The last thing I have to do is fix the shadows and then I should have things looking the way I want them.


A bit about this project

I wanted to do something Ghost in the Shellish for a while and wrote a fanfic for that aeons ago. But I dusted that off and rewrote it to make it more original and this is what happened.

I also learned after effects now so I can do the cool HUD things I want to along with openings and credits.

Well its the new year so....time for some new shit.


seriously he's working on some cool stuff and taught me some tricks to make stuff bettard.

Picture time!


I'm working on a sci fi detective thing thats kinda ghost in the shell-ish whilst I wait for the last Kagemusha lines for the next ep. And for this new thing I'm just waiting on the other guys lines....







Also Kagemusha, I'm almost finished with that but i just need kaggy's lines for the one char. I'll probaby have to re-render some scenes though now that I know this new awesome technique cooli showed me




Hopefully I'll finish em by the end of the month

I haz made new anime.

Watch it hurr: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/650267?updated=1


It's not filler since I added a new character that will be more relevant in subsequenct episodes....minisodes? vignettes?

SANTOS KRAUSS- Teen Idol and latin lover extraordinairre except he's from Osaka so he's not hispanic but only wishes he was. DAT SWAGGER THO!



In addition there is a present at the end of the video after the credits that was a tag team production with RealFaction and 11linda to made a "so bad it's good" style promo vid from the chirumiru meme video.

In other news I FINALLY got my second mocap camera so we're in business- as soon as I figure out how to calibrate it correctly , then maybe I can make some sweet sweet baby fight animations for Kagemusha.


I'm not sure whether I will finish the next Kagemusha episode by the end of the month or not since its pretty action intensive...yess.....sword fights on horseback....I WANT TO TO DO EEET



Anyways thats the update


Posted by Kel-chan - November 30th, 2014

I'm learning adobe after effects and its glorious!

Try doing this the manual way and it just looks like crap....




I also looked around for some freebies on deviant art and found some pieces to redesign the Teacher character in GPS.


---I think these were PL2 or that eechi game parts MMDfakewings or someone converted.


---Anyways I'm working on the next of Kagemusha and the next Galaxy Police Squad minisode for Dec.


---Kagemusha will take some time because of all the action sequences, sword fights on horseback and all that jazz.


---Aries Sky manga is on hold for a little bit whilst I do this schtuff

So I picked the serious shader and added an ambient occlusion to make it look a little better hopefully. It might have produced some lag or something i dunno.


Anyways its done. Its a remake of my old shinobi noir series. Next episode should be sometime next month if I'm lucky.

Also it will have some new chars that I have to make.


this was the concept art. The character is based off of Hibiki in the last blade game visually (pigtails but thats about it.)



I made the char model


I tried to give the filter that worn 60s look so its a little sephia with some screen noise and I think even though this is a daytime shot it will help to make it look darker.


This my fav char in the series even moreso than Amari thats the main char. Hibiki and Amari are sisters separated at birth- one becomes and assassin and the other a wandering samurai and they don't know eachother as adults.



So Next up in queue:

Finish Chapt 5 of Aries Sky

Start the X-mas GPS short

Start Kagemusha Ch 2

I have a bunch of shaders and crap for MMD that I've found on deviantart and from beamman and bowlroll. I can't decide which one I like. Originally I usually go with a type of shader that looks cel-shaded and simple like regular anime.


This T-toon shader ( the final night filter isnt on this one)



But originally I got into 3d because of Appleseed which looks like this




I know thats a bunch of composites but still


I have a bunch of looks to choose from

Adult shader



NHCL shader ( I kind of like this one)


Serious Shader (this one looks pretty good too)


T-Toon Eye/hair shader ( this one kind of gives it that highlight but its a little plasticky)



The problem is with all these shaders since these models aren't amazing quality, nor are the rigged like a movie model would be with tons of bones and sliders- some of the more defined shaders bring out more of the flaws in the model geometry


Lemme know which one you like. For me it might be between NHCL and serious shader. It's kind of annoying because I rendered all of the next ep with T-Toon like I have been doing but only thought of this afterwards. The more serious shaders give it a more serious feel

I had to steal Jaltoid's look for the title card but meh

Its just a short that I meant to do back in like March but never got around to it. So I did it now just to warm up for making new Galaxy Police Squad episodes for next year.




Posted by Kel-chan - November 8th, 2014

Well here it is finally....



A while back I was gonna make a starwars thing. That fizzled out and I teamed up with someone else to make something a little more OC and it became this.



Space Pirate business...


It was interesting to make- I started it before doing the first ep of Kagemusha so it was a good learning experience.

Next week or so I will upload the next ep of Kagemusha and probably more pages of the Aries Sky manga.

Some of dat ninja action



Incidently I also have a GPS short I had Adoxographist record way back in March that I never got to so I'm working on that too....which should be interesting.


I remodeled alot of the chars for it

The new version of good ol Ada Muddguppy


And new version of the good old Lt. Sara Cuddlepuppy.



Doing GPS should be interesting since I get to mess with the models more to make exagerrated poses and also mix

it a bit with the 2d


All in all....lots of crap to do.....myeah...


Posted by Kel-chan - October 29th, 2014

I was messing around with stuff to try to get a cinematic darker look or gritty.

This is a nighttime scene so I'm using some blue filters. I want to get that 60s chanbara look which is overall more desaturated because the cameras were crappier then. The below is a screenshot from the 2003 Zatoichi movie which was the inspiration for this and even though it was made in 03, it still has that 60s samurai action look.





Filter A


Filter B



Personally I like B more but the thing is when the chars are against the sky they're hard to see- which does make sense since they're frickin ninjas but it may be too hard.

Filter A is more like a sin-city I think. B looks closer to the original color scheme of the first shinobi noir. The tough part is, I was in a pretty depressed mood when I made the original, and I'm not now so it's tough to make it that dark now.
