Messing with Post Processing


This is a bunch of series of pictures on making something look like something...I think. The reason why some pictures are blurring is because there is motion blur since the scene is moving but aside from that. This first picture is just a base render with no shadows. The backround is just a holder sky.


This has some heavy shadows. I have to change the shadow mapping on the worm to look a little better though


This has some HG Diffusion, and a Diffusion script from MME that gives it the blurry anime bloom look but the cart still looks a little 3D


This has everything compiled together with the lineart details. I still will have to add post FX in vegas or photoshop like the dust from the sand worm.

Chapter 4 has been started, It's kind of the obligatory anime/manga flashback-isode to build context, introduce character relationship and setup plot things for the future. Therefore it's not as action intensive as the previous chapter.


You can view the entire manga so far here : http://www.inkblazers.com/manga-and-comics/Aries-Sky/detail-page/7194?lang=en


and It's also on my page in the art section, although that can be a little convoluted to sort through in order.

I'm working on Chapter 4 and have the story written out to chapter 7 so...If you actually like this story, FEAR NOT! I am not just winging it! There will be plenty of char development and story and twists and all that jazz


If you have no idea what this is- Check it out on inkblazers




Incidently, while making this comic, I found a new technique of doing animation using this style, so if one day I decide to turn this manga into an anime- I can do so exactly with the same level of quality as the manga which is pretty cool.


I used  to not like the thick lines but now I admit I am becoming more of a fan


Posted by Kel-chan - July 11th, 2014

Hue Hue hue. I finished the last pages of ch.3


Chapter 3 is complete... It's uploaded here and of course on http://www.inkblazers.com/manga-and-comics/Aries-Sky/detail-page/7194?lang=en


I made a new cover for the thing cuz the old one was kind of not eye gouging enough...



Next up Chapter 4: Origins

Posted by Kel-chan - July 8th, 2014

I cleaned up some stuff in Chapter 1 and rewrote some stuff. I didn't want to add in a bunch of stuff as it will be redundant in chapter 4 and take away from some of the reveal, also- in comic wouldn't make sense for the characters to be talking about in the moment. I also don't want to take away from what will be revealed in Chapter 4 but it should set up enough things that logical progression will make sense and still keep it's suprises later for a new reader.

You guys got me so excited I should be finishing chapter 3 up by the end of the week and starting chapter 4 next week.

I'm trying to go with the Intro-Action-Drama-Suprise-Reveal sequence to keep the story interesting throughout so it won't stagnate. That forumula should repeat in every couple of chapters to make things interesting.

View chapter 1 here:


The first 3 pages are the same as the text was hard saved into the pages so I didn't want to totally redo that. The updates start at about page 4 I believe.


It's also updating on NG but NG is finicky and doesnt update all at once

Posted by Kel-chan - July 6th, 2014

Here you can read the manga so far


It's also here on NG of course in my art tab and Pkmn2 Has created the playlist on NG here http://www.newgrounds.com/playlists/view/7ee8d38400c4c136950890d9b31e1000

I might put the manga on storyshift that Kimolemonhead told me about but I have to get to the point where I'm ready to do that. Namely after the intro story arc which should be done in probably chapter 4.

It's also weird because I'm starting to think more about making it now into a good story and I want to try to add some things in from a philosophical perspective that probably nobody will notice. Also even though it's chapter 3, I haven't really explained any of the characters back stories, and it's kind of funny that the main characters of Rion and Rock have not been developed yet but I do have backgrounds for them and for the entire story as a whole.

The plot thickens yet again...hopefully


As for other updates...


Here's a screen shot from the Shinobi noir project I'm trying to wrap up. It only needs the VA pretty much and then rendering and audio. I'm asking KatMaestro to make some awesome music for it.



I really need to stop going overboard with animation. I always want to do more and more making rediculous fight and action sequences and i think I need to check myself because its causing me to overdo things. Incidently I am working on a more serious story with Jay that is mostly dialogue and am...considering doing it with this 3D.

I think it would make a great movie and it would be a chance to spit something out that is actually easy since theres not much action and its more of a drama story.

Incidently, I'm also working on that LOTOE star wars thing but doing it slower. I decided to do the Shinobi noir thing first to make sure I can make something of quality. 3D is weird, especially with mocap. Its more like making a live action movie than just animating. I say its easier or harder than 2d but its different.

But right now I just have to hurry up and put something out. I dunno why I feel like I'm on the clock, time is slipping away and I'm not releasing anything of quality but I hope to remedy that.

Also I guess I'm now getting into bitcoin cuz...CRYPTOCURRENCIES RULE

I've always wanted to make a Korean Action Movie so before I do the Star Wars schtick- I'm revisiting an old premise with SHINOBI NOIR.


I finally found out how to make the 3D animation look nearly as pretty as the DAZ studio 3d renders. This is a production still from the actual animation not a 3D render.

I just need to add a few more bad guys to the scene and record some more action stuff.

I made a short trailer for a Star Wars Project.


I dunno if it will be made into an actual thing or not
