Anyhow I amalgamated all my task lists into that app so, whilst I can't physically work on every project I've started, thought about, got bored of etc. They're all listed, and at least not forgotten.
So what am I working on over the next few months?
My YouTube Channels (The Extraordinary Tourist & TET Animations)
My original YouTube channel, The Extraordinary Tourist has recently had something of a makeover in order to clearly focus it on my two main interests going forward, Art and Skateboarding. I'm striving to release a video every Tuesday and Saturday and have mostly kept my schedule even if videos have been a day or two late.
|The Extraordinary Tourist YouTube Channel.|
I mention it here because the channel will feature some crossover with my TET Animations channel. Specifically some of the art I do there may end up featured in animation videos on TET Animations.
Speaking of TET Animations my goal is to release one video every Thursday for that channel focused on some aspect of animation. That could be anything from my own projects through to application reviews and tutorials.
I haven't got into that schedule with TET Animations yet but once I give the channel a makeover in the very near future, expect me to write more posts here featuring my videos from there.
Infinite Monkey Theorem
Infinite Monkey Theorem which, like Random Testing Unit, went from being a short 1-2 week project to becoming an epic ball and chain burden that just keeps holding on.
I took another look at it, and started to animate more scenes just last week. I'm definitely going to make a push to finish it before I start on any new CrazyTalk Animator projects.
Bat Storm is Moving to iClone 7
As I reported in this post, I've started creating models for Bat Storm in iClone 7, a 3D animation studio app made by the same company that makes CrazyTalk Animator 3. I've had the full professional version of iClone for years and barely used it. The software is superior to Muvizu in every way, I've got way more content for it so it makes sense to use it for Bat Storm.
I want to make Bat Storm my next animated project after Infinite Monkey Theorem and will hopefully get some more time to develop the character designs in the near future.
More CrazyTalk Characters for my Reallusion Marketplace Store
|One of the Random Characters|
soon to be a CTA3 Character.
One thing I like more than anything else is character design. Not specifically coming up with designs but, when I randomly doodle something in my sketchbook that looks like it would be a good character for something, I like to develop it up into a character... and then see them animated.
Already on my Extraordinary Tourist Channel I've sketched up two random characters that I want to turn into CTA3, G3 characters for my store. I hope to work on them and others, so that I can slowly stock my store, make some sales, and see what people do with my characters that I don't seem to have time to animate myself.
As I said at the start I've got projects from almost every task list I've created in the last five years entered into my Get It Done task app, so I've got a deep pool of things I've started to draw from. I'll try to feed some of those older projects back into the mix as I get motivated again.
It will be challenging as I'm also working to grow Animation 4 Business and its work load which could be doing a lot more business if the guy who runs it would actually do some marketing and promotion... (that's me. I'm talking about me... and that's what I'm trying to do now).
For now, that's what's ahead in the immediate future. Hopefully making a video once a week will help with me having content to post here once a week too. Stay tuned!
