I've been posting once a year for the past three years on my birthday, but I decided to buck that trend in the face and post what I've been up to. I was looking for work where ever I could find it a few months ago, and realized my demo reel didn't reflect what I was applying for. So I spent a bunch of time modeling some new things, and am back in the saddle looking for a jearb. What this means is I've done almost all that I can, and now it's a matter of job apps, waiting, not hearing from anyone, lowering my standards, and repeating. In the mean time I really want to go back into production with Crotchless Chaps 2 now that I don't have overwhelming guilt when I spend any free time not trying to get a job or make money. Which puts me in a weird spot that I'd like to hear some input on.
It's been three years since the last one. I think people enjoyed it. I fucking loved making it regardless, and I fucking loved writing the script for this second one (and recording the dialogue). It takes place literally right where the last one left off - which means it's semi-important to have seen the other one. But again, it's three years old and I haven't made an animation since. So, I can do a few things. I can compile the first and second into one 22 minute long episode, which is super long and would definitely need to be converted to a non-flash format. If I do that, I feel like I'd have to remaster the first, which would be a pain in the ass, but kind of necessary. OR, I can just make the second, and post a link for people in the beginning of it to watch the first if you haven't seen it. I love the series, and would probably take it even further, but it's not a game changer on this site that everyone has heard about, so it might be a lot to ask for the average viewer to go back and watch an 11 minute episode. OR, I could do both, but that's sort of spamming NG with redundant shit. I don't have a youtube presence, and don't really care to have one so I'd only make this for NG. Let me know what you think.
One last thing. Prosnorkulus 1 & 2 are the best animations I've seen on NG since ...I dunno. Keeblur. It's a god damn travesty that a series like that doesn't have a million views by now. Prosnorkulus 2 has been on the front page for over a month and still doesn't have 100k views. The fuckin' doves are crying.
