Kel-chan's News

Myeah next batch of pages for chapter 5 are out


I made playlists for this manga now so you can actually read it if you are interested


Also check it out here since its far easier to page flip



I also made a new character for this part. Captain Loren Decimus. I originally was going to make him a Major but I thought that was too high. Also if I made him a Lt. that would be too low so Cap'n sounds just right.




That thing in the background is the Ariesian flag which I finally got to making


Aries Flag- That Gear thing will have some symbology later I hope. I'll make the Arestra flag later.


In other news I'm still working on Kagemusha Chapter 1. Most of the hard part is done- I just have to add in a few talking scenes and also the ending then put it all together in vegas.


It should be done in maybe 2 weeks I hope


From R to L- Gennosuke (mainly in chapt 2), sato- and the Ninja version of amari

Mkay well my new(old) whatever series has started






Watch it here: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/647333





A bit about this series: It's a reboot of the first (actually 2nd but the first was so bad it shouldn't even be called a series) series I put on NG. I have about 6 episodes written as of yet and since this is a drama type series it will be a little easier to make with the mocap since the fight scenes are more realistic and don't involve magic or weird stuff.

Also I'm getting a new mocap camera setup at the end of the month/next month that should help alot with the animation especially with multiple characters and fast movements for sword fighting.

The focus of this series will be solid story and character development. Sir Undead will reprise his role as the samurai lord Ashikaga and CodeblackHayate will help out with the other main female ronin character when we get to that episode.

I'm going to try to make something like an episode a month which should be do-able due to the type of animation thats called for with this project.



Also my Aries sky comic is update with the next batch of pages and I have....A PLAYLIST FINALLY TA-DA!!!!

All the chapters are separated on the playlist page now. But you can also check out the full comic so far here:




The comic is finally starting to get to the point in the story to where we will start seeing the nitty gritty of what is happening not just to the main characters but the worldspace in general. We'll also soon learn what exactly is the deal with Rion and her ability.



Chapter 5 still has a bit more to go with exposition of the Aresian side before we get to Chapt. 6 to see what happened with Rock and Pilla.


And incase anybody is interested I will spam my patreon http://www.patreon.com/user?u=102503

So here again ae updates...


First up- Aries Sky- I added a couple more pages- I forgot to update NG with the rest so it's a little behind the NG art portal. You can check out my NG page if you can't find it.


Also the full comic is here http://www.inkblazers.com/read-manga/Aries-Sky-Chapter-5-Escape/7194/4/0?lang=en




Since I worked on that wushu fight animation last week I was a little bit behind in putting this out. Chapter 5 is going to be a little involved as things start to come together with tying in characters like Captain Shariz from the previous chapters. Unfortunately we won't get to see what Rock and Pilla have been up to until chapter 6.


In other news-

My series Sanctum is pretty much finished as far as animation but I'm waiting on some things from some other people. Hopefully it will be released before the end of the month but I might have to cross my fingers on that.



So whilst I wait for that to be done I'm rebooting the Shinobi Noir series and retitling it as "Swordsman". Btw this is the old shinobi noir series aka the only one I had an actual story written for. Y'all may not like it though as its  more of an action drama-esque type thing but we'll see how it goes.

I might be able to put out the prologue episode by next weekend depending on getting VA's since I have the action sequences mostly done.



Good thing is doing that short Wu martial arts project I found out how to fix the physics for clothing now so it won't be the eternal fluttering in the breeze.


Keep on trucking and don't drink any of that ebola-cola.

I've been looking at some games and movies coming out of japan that are merging 3d characters with 2d backgrounds and 3d effects in after effects.

Namely Ranko Tsukigime's longest day




I'm trying to acheive this look since it not only looks nice but will cut down on the size of the render files if i just have the models animated and rendered and then composite them with background shots. BTW those characters are not drawings- they're 3d models.


So I tried this



Here is a 3D model rendered with basic lighting



This is the same model with a background slapped behind it




Added the character...



I put the background through the filter here to make it look more painted and merged it with the 3d model- the next step after this would be in final render to put the light rays and things in. I added some diffusion to blur things together a bit. At this point its sort of looking like some of the naruto shippuden games but the diffusion - while it blends it better it doesn't look as crisp




Taking it alittle further and making it look more like a painting it can tend to make it look more painted or drawn- this doesn't have the diffusion ans it probably doesn't need it since the character is blurred in with the paint layer. If I mix this and the layer with the raw 3d I could get it a little more crisp i think

Chapter 5 has been updated with the first 14 pages. There's going to be alot of stuff in this manga.


You can check it out on NG or here: http://www.inkblazers.com/manga-and-comics/Aries-Sky/detail-page/7194?lang=en

Le page one...



Aside from that i'm working on the my first serious animation series. Hopefully I can get Howard to help out with some of the animation. It'll be the first thing thats serious- more seinen anime style.



Random mocap  thing...


I didn't finish the model yet- he's got some parts poking through and also the motion data is not set on the floor plane correctly

The right link.......http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/645882


oh man...



herpa derp derp


I learned alot which was good.


Also I found alot of things out about the program that I didn't know were possible. I also found a way to convert my BVH motion to vmd which will help alot making smoother and more lifelike animations.


This was made before that other test video which is a different project and what I'm working on currently

Posted by Kel-chan - September 10th, 2014

it's a rough cut- normally I don't post WIPs really but what the hell....


seems every project this year has got halted at some stage temporarily. Atleast this one is free from that provided nothing happens.


I tried to make this Ghost in the shellish.....


cuz I can't animate like monty oum yet.


Also theres alot of animations that are not smoothed yet but this is just the basic flow



Posted by Kel-chan - September 8th, 2014


I was looking at some CGI anime studios trying to figure out how they composite crap in some of the CGI animes. Also how they mix together stuff like shading and motion blurs...


All this needs is the actors shadow which would be composite on another layer


Gif killed the qualty but you get the idea...





Posted by Kel-chan - September 2nd, 2014

Alright...here's the skinny


Aries Sky chapter 4 DONE

Read here or in the art portal:



On to chapter 5.


In other news I am working on a 3D anime action short which is pretty much done but I'm teaming up with Clerik to make some musics for it




It's got Sir Undead as an epic kung fu guy and CodeblackHayate as Su-chan (pictured above and Maeko pictured below)



This project is specifically an entry into 3D Anime-ing and getting serious with the Animation fight scene choreography buisess.

I won't be making it into a series because I'm teaming up with another guy KuroNeko to make a series with a solid storyline.


I've learned enough so now I can begin working towards making something awesome.

CHECK OUT THE FULL COMIC: http://www.inkblazers.com/manga-and-comics/Aries-Sky/detail-page/7194?lang=en


I made the next couple of pages for chapter 4 which is going to be a long chapter. I'm expecting it to be around 40-45 pages in total. I keep hitting the wall for uploads per day since I usually make 11-13 pages per update. Also the character pages throw me off to- so everytime I update- if you're reading this comic check the inkblazer page as that will always have the full update first before my page does.


It's almost a 100pages in total and I haven't even scratched the surface of the story yet but things are starting to slowly come together. Right now Chapter 4 is about giving the reader background information on the characters and world history. At the end of Ch4 I will add a graphic that has the timeline of events that have taken place in the world so far.


I also like this grayscale thing- I think it look a little better and the screentones give more definition. It's basically the same process I'm going to be using in my future animations cept not grayscale.


Funny thing- Young Rock reminds me a little bit of Pride from Full Metal Alchemist, atleast just in looks.
