You trying to make deviantART more like a social media site?
I don't quite think that's the purpose of this site. 

So yeah.

Obviously, I'm not a fan. And I don't even get on here much.
Hey, guys! Long time no see. I used to update quite frequently, and then that all ended. =/ Because of college! So I guess it was for a good reason.

I've been extremely busy with college work, but I just started to find time to doodle... in anime club. Which I'm surprised I joined, but it gives me time to relax and talk with different people. 

So it's been getting me thinking... animation takes forever. P: Especially the approach I've been taking where everything is polished to the best of my ability. Animation is just a hobby of mine, I don't plan to make a career out of it. Future Agents the Movie is just for fun.
However, I love my story dearly and it's gotten off to a great start (Minus the fact that I've been working on it forever...)

So this is where I'm in a dilemma. I want to finish my movie. I need to finish my movie... especially with my idea for a sequel. However, it's never going to get done if I animate every single second of it, which was my initial plan. I'm stuck as to what I should do.

I don't want to drop it. My voice actors have put in a lot of time to get their lines just right. 
Should I simplify my animations? Take out shading? That would take out a huge chunk of time needed to complete it. 

Also, maybe I could leave my animations sketchy and color them? I don't know if that would make them more choppy. I would probably have to experiment. 
I could still do my more complex backgrounds with google sketchup. But another dilemma is that the 3D effects would look out of place. Also, the material I do have animated would also look out of place. 

Another option I have (And on I'm not too fond of) is to do still frames and no animation. I think it works with a lot of things... but I don't think it will work with the movie. 

Sooo... I don't know how to finish it. My heart is really with the comic sequel, Future Agents: Redux, at the moment because the story is much better and goes into more depth. I really enjoy making still images... making a comic still takes a lot of work, but it's something I would be much happier doing. But I can't share the sequel until I finish the movie. 
I haven't been on here in awhile. I've been super busy with college.

If you would like to keep up with my college projects, follow my Instagram!

I just got it today, so you haven't missed much. 

I'll be posting there more often.

Long story short, I finished painting my half of the trade, but when inking a canvas piece I'm working on my inking pen died, so it'll be a while before I can get a new one to re-ink (ie finish) my half. Sorry. :/
