Back in January I began work on the next Rovion episode with a total overhaul of the character's designs, to free up their body so they could be more flexible. The thing is, I started the episode just a few days after making the new design, long before I had refined the look to any degree. I made it through about 1000 frames of snowboarding animation before the holidays ended.
When uni started, I put the episode on hold and focused on drawing in my spare time. During this time I refined the look much more, and I still make relatively small changes every couple of weeks or so. Last week I made their noses stick out a bit, yesterday I changed their toes from pointy to rounded, you get the idea. The point is, Felix (protagonist) doesn't quite look like how he used to. It's pretty noticeable when in one scene he's barely got a fringe of hair then in the next it's huge and spiky.
It's taking a while to finish because I don't know what to do any more. I could start again, but I put heaps of work into those 1000 or so frames. I could release the ~40 seconds of random snowboarding and start making the rest the episode as a of comic or something. Or I could just continue the episode and hope no one notices all the design changes.
What do you think?
Thanks for taking the time to read this!
