Skynamic Crewmember Louise Leung wanted to let you guys know about this awesome Kickstarter she is a part of!
"Take on the role of Nature’s bratty daughters in Costume Fairy Adventures! Twelve inches tall, immortal and full of mischief, your fairy will wield her great powers in the cause of tomfoolery and petty nonsense. Prank the gnomes, humble the ogres and make the humans have all the fun they can stand as you and your friends introduce delightful chaos wherever you go.
Costume Fairy Adventures is a roleplaying game for 2-7 players, intended for both online and face-to-face play. It includes a fully illustrated deck of costume cards for your fairy to dress up in and gain powers for her irresponsible ends, and three Playsets to support the GM as the fairies bring their mischief to different genres.
Join the Kickstarter today to get backer swag like dice, stickers and figurines, and help us push towards stretch goals to make the core game an even better deal!”
So... Is This Just An Art Blog Or Is There An Actual... How Do I Say... Animation Of It?
The answer is yes! There is an actual animated pilot on it’s way! We have been posting material from our pre-visual development process - but our final product will be a Flash animated pilot for a series. Our reveal video was released on YouTube over the summer - you can check it out to find out a bit more! Also, we have some other animated promos in the works so stay tuned to find out more!
How do the Flash Puppets and Special FX are made if so will the studio ever post behind the scene videos or some tutorials.
To answer your questions:
1. How are the Flash Puppets Made?: We have a team dedicated to building our high quality puppets. Puppet building happens after a lot of other steps involving character concept, character Illustration, and asset building. After perfecting this, it is handed off to the puppet team to build and rig the puppets in Flash.
2. How are SPFX made: we also have a highly skilled team of SPFX artists who are hard at work currently locking down how things like magic, water and fire will look in the True Tail universe.
3. Will the studio ever post behind the scene videos or some tutorials: Well, if you follow our social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr) you can check out a TON of behind the scenes concept work for True Tail. We would also like to post some tutorials after our website is completed. As far as something you can look at right now - if you are interested in learning more about Flash animation, our Art Director Zachary Rich has a series of tutorials you can use now for free on YouTube!
We are still hiring! SKYNAMIC STUDIOS, the creative team behind True Tail, is seeking Environmental Artists, Web/Graphic Designers, and SPFX Artists/Animators. If you would like to join our team, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also learn more about True Tail here: www.true-tail.com
As a note, our super talented crew of professionals are working on the pilot episode of True Tail, so no one is getting paid for now. Our goal is to create the best looking pilot we can manage on a zero budget, and then through showing it to the right people, obtain financial backing to create our first season.
We have had great reactions from major contacts in the animation industry we’ve shown our progress to thus far, so we feel very confident in the future of True Tail!
We look forward to seeing your work and to working with you very soon!
