So I'm working on this new puppet rig (which is almost complete) and I was thinking of getting other people to beta test them before they're released. What I'd like is feedback concerning the way it moves, animates, and how it exports. If interested, please search for me on skype and add: Merlin [KiloPaSKULL]

Well here it is, the video I've been working on for a little while. I finished the actual animating part in 3 days before the deadline (being yesterday) and man o man. The lip syncing...It took me 2 all nighters in a row and a day to complete, and the first all nighter was dedicated to lip syncing alone. Thankfully, I had Papagayo to help me with the lip sync, it was so much easier to do after using it. Exporting was the last day and my computer kept overheating and the software keep freezing. But now that its all over, I'm happy to reveal to you, my very first animation

I'm almost done a project I've been working on, the stage has been set with both puppet rigs done. All I have to do now is the final animation and video editing!
*fluttershy yay* :D
Man, how do some people do this? I'm really trying hard to do the animation stuff I want to but something keeps coming up. I've been given an official deadline for one of my animation projects I'm working on and now I have to really rush at it to get it done before the deadline. This puts back all the other animation projects I'm working on (such as the new advanced puppet rig for AS) Not only that, I am also trying to get back on the work saddle but it is very difficult to contact my manager to start working again. Once I do I'll have a sustainable income to work on all my projects. So all in all, life is tough right now, but I know it'll get better because I want it to get better. I will do everything in my power to make everything work and get everything done. I know with the right mindset I can do anything. I just have to work out a few rough patches and I'll be good to go. Till then, I hope you guys understand my current situation, and have a nice day :)

Tales from Grand Theft Auto 5
Playing as Franklin

Insanity! Franklins mind was racing around as he ran around on the highway, nearing deadly strikes of steal and metal that could destroy a big chunk of the body's bones and take the breath out of him while rupturing veins and causing bloodloss at a rate waaay higher than intended to keep life in the body. His spine was split as a hummer struck him, as well as his arms and legs and ribs. Even the back. What else could possibly go wrong with the body after all the deadly blows it had suffered from already? The neck was also split partly, leaving a big gush of red fluid spraying that was caused by the heart explosion. Only the brain was left, to possibly try to analize what just happened and go through the memories of he loved in life most. Things that gave his life meaning and pleasures where remembered first to try comfort his remaining seconds of life that was currently undergoing what was the remains seconds of life that was being brought to an end through painful crushing beneath a ton of iron and metal. Unable to cope with the trauma, the brain dies from all the nerve destruction.
Life ends...
...and he is brought to the hospital and somehow comes back to life to rampage on. The end.

Story original by Me, Merlin Pascal.

Hey man. How's your AS stuff coming along?

Pretty good, I've been really busy with work and music right now, haven't had much time to work on my puppet rigs, but progress on one rig in progress is going well. And sorry, I can't give you the batch file to the Shining Armor video seeing as its not entirely mine, others from the Bogyle Bronies channel helped so I don't have a say in who can view the files used for their channel. I'll be sure to put more time in AS this month since I've switched from working full time to part time.

I wouldn't reupload it for morally wrong purposes, but I can see why you'd deny me :)

I work practically all day (11-5) and have nothing to do. I tried bringing in AS, but Since it's a pirated version, you have to have administrator positions to use it and I don't have those. Figured having hours to burn would be a good way to get work done on lots of puppets and finish refining some of my current works I haven't gotten around to.

So, just out of curiosity, I saw your rainbow Dash puppet had an update since the last time I visited that you made mouths a switch layer instead of a dial. Did I influence that, or did you come up with that on your own? I think I'll try working with Actions in my next puppet to see how those work.

Thanks for your understanding. I decided to make it switch because I thought the whole 'dial to change mouth' wasn't the best idea for animation, and I found switch works much better with the lip sync software called "papagayo" that helped out a bunch with the Shining Armor video.
