I'll work backwards from newest to oldest.
These projects I've not mentioned in this blog before or have briefly mentioned in passing.
CrazyTalk Animator 3, G3, Desert Scavenger Character, and Animated Short
I have a partially complete script and storyboard for the project so there's still a chance this will get made. What is more certain is that the Rey character rig (who I'm naming 'Ma-Rey Sue') is currently on my drawing board and progressing daily. In fact the character is easily over 60% complete at this point.
At the time of writing I still had to go through and adjust all her hand sprites (after doing a straight import and recolor of all the hand sprites I used for Reddy the color monkey) to look more feminine. Then I have to create all her eye and mouth sprites. To finish off I need to work out how to add her flowing robes and create her staff weapon.
All going to plan she should be done by mid November.
Infinite Monkey Theorem Animated Short

Monkey Theorem Storyboard.
The project has been completely rough draft, storyboarded and was waiting for me to finish creating Reddy's CTA3, G3, character rig - which I have.
Work is currently progressing daily. I'm not too sure when I expect to be finished but I'm hoping by the end of November, early Decemeber.
Reddy, Super Bluey, and The Great Greensbury
|Kevin and his Color Monkeys.|
However I can't really make a start proper until I have their 'Dad' character, Kevin, made and rigged as a CTA3, G3 character. He's next in line after Ma-Rery Sue. Once he's done I can start building a series of animated shorts around him and the three monkeys.
Watch the video diary below for a little more info on the above recent projects.
From here on in are projects that have been mentioned in this blog and have yet to have any kind of update or closure (i.e. be officially discontinued).
Cool Fryod Animated Shorts
What I'd really like to do is redesign him entirely as a G3 quadruped character. This would allow him to walk around and generally do a lot more than just sit and talk.
The Comedian, iClone/CrazyTalk 8 Animated Short
|CrazyTalk 8 version of|
I've yet to port over all my content library and projects into iClone 7 (and my library is huge, so it's not a quick task). This has put a complete hold on all iClone projects as a result. It is completely beyond me why Reallusion can't supply an app to port your content across or just use the existing folders instead of making a whole new batch each version.
Hoot Game Creation

JAC Cat G2 to G3 Character Conversion
|CTA2, G2 JAC Turnarounds.|
I'd still like to convert JAC to a G3 character rig, or maybe even complete the G2 version, since he's almost there, and CTA3 introduced a simplified facial animation system that works with G2 characters.
At this stage I haven't looked at him in years though so it may not happen at all.
|Bat Storm, Bat Flash, Charge Girl, and Super Charge.|
All created with Muvizu.
I was then going to resurrect the series using Muvizu's 3D animation studio. However Muvizu has since gone into receivership. Whilst their downloadable application and site still works I'm not confident it's a good idea to start anything new on their platform going forward.
I have not given up on Bat Storm and all the other characters that made up his stories. My plan is to include them in my color monkey series as guest characters or even spin off shows eventually. I just wanted to note that you will see Bat Storm again.

I think I've covered everything. If you are a long time reader or follower of my work, and have been looking forward to a project I've started at some point and appear to have completely forgotten about, please leave a comment letting me know.
