The plot thickens yet again!!
The move is finally happening! My stuff is gonna be picked up tomorrow and sent to Sydney, where I’ll head down on Friday, pick up the key/sign the lease, and be moved in on Saturday, just in time for my stuff to arrive!
Already lined up this week’s MAiZ page, check it out this Friday (Thursday night US time) as normal!
Hopefully should have stuff set up at the new place, and I’ll be living and working in Sydney!
Sorry folks! I haven’t been able to dedicate any time to MAiZ this week, so there won’t be a new page tomorrow.
I’ve been hampered down with a heavy freelance job at the moment, on top of planning my move to Sydney in a few weeks. I have to fly down there tomorrow to look at more prospective rental properties, talk to rental people, try to not appear desperate etc etc. It’s turning out to be quite the stressful affair!
Thus I apologise for the lack of a new page this week! Once I’m back next Monday, I’ll hopefully have time during the week to catch up again.
Hi folks! Sadly there won’t be a new MAiZ page today; this past week has been busy with freelance work, I’ve been unable to dedicate the time to working on this new page. I’m planning to take time over the weekend to work on it, so should see new a new update either by Sunday or Monday at the latest!
I’m so sorry for the delay!
So sorry folks, but sadly this weeks comic is going to be postponed. I’ve come down with a nasty flu that’s thrown me about, and made working rather difficult, even on a MAiZ page.
I’ve been trying to get as much rest as possible, drinking plenty of fluids, but it looks like this blasted flu won’t be gone before tomorrow. I’m sorry for the inconvenience! Hopefully I’ll be back up and running properly next week and will have a new page ready for then (maybe 2 if I get the time!)
Fuzzballs! I forgot to post this! It’s not much, but here is a fully animated scene for MAiZ episode 1!
…Well, that was quick!
My original intent was to have the entire opening sequence of MAiZ episode 1 completed before Crystal Mountain Pony Con back in June, but naturally things didn’t go according to plan: other jobs/priorities came up, I got busy, and on top of that, my office/house got partially flooded! (we’re insured, so it’s okay!)
Despite all that, I managed to finish at least ONE scene before the convention, and used it as a speaking point about the process of creating an animation from concept to rendering. It was fun showing examples of concept art, work in progress drawings, and the scene itself, as short as it is.
Fun fact: this scene took a week to make, including the background and animation!
So what does this mean for the MAiZ project? Well, nothing’s changed! I still plan to develop this into a fully animated sequence, but I have no idea how long that will take. This will likely be a long-term project (if it wasn’t already) that I will work on between other projects, until either I can devote 100% of my time to it, or I consider hiring help (or both).
Hopefully in the coming months, I can show you more updates as they happen!
For the time being, I hope you can enjoy this small piece of what I hope to be a full episode one day!
