I've never been the most consistent person when it comes to updating my DA. For 2016, I'm really looking to change that. Some quick things about me. My name is Adam, I'm a writer/animator. Fun, right? My main passion project, Shattered Heaven is something I've been working on for years. It evolved from Armored Core fanfiction into an original story on the now dead AC forum, Armored Core Online. Initially a novel series, in 2007 I decided to try my hand at animating. The first series attempt ran 4 episodes and was, well, a learning experience. I'm a self taught animator as I went to school for writing. In 2013 I rebooted the series and had it focus on the first book's content.
As of right now, 5 episodes are out, and a few smaller minisodes. The first season's finale is in production.
You can follow the mecha series on my Youtube as it's where I'm far more consistent when it comes to updates.
I'll be uploading art every day, most of it will be from Shattered Heaven, but there will also be some from another animated web series I'm working on with my friends Kira Buckland (Amy in SH/ professional VO) and Chris Niosi (debuts in Ep 6/Kirbopher/TOME/professional VO/etc), called Dragon Star. It's Kira's project but Chris and I are helping out between character design and animation.
I'm most likely going to be setting up a Patreon to help me out, this is something I do in my free time which is pretty limited but I'd love/prefer to have this sort of thing be my focus. Plus it'll allow me to maybe pay my friends who have been so kind to help me out with VO, sound design, etc.
I'd also like to find good background artists for the series. I'm not good at background art, I'm fond of it. I'm trying to improve, but being a one man animation project, it's extremely difficult since I'm pretty much doing everything. If anyone is interested in the project and would like to offer, it'd be tremendously appreciated. We'd need to see some sample work in background art. I'm not making money off it now so it'd really have to be someone who is genuinely interested in the project and would want to help out. Hopefully if I can get Patreon going in the future and get some donations then I can start offering people money.
So that's about it, here's to hopefully keeping this account active for once!
