Astralojia - A Cartoon Series
« on: July 01, 2010, 08:07:21 PM »
I'm releasing the first episode of Astralojia to numerous internet communities on independence day. I've decided to release it early here, at Free Bird Games.
_____________________________________________

Astralojia
Updates Every Friday...
 

 
Plot Summary: Takuto has failed the entrance exam to the magic school he's wanted to get into 3 years in a row. Returning to Oak Wood, meeting up with his friends Juno and Mina, he will try for his 4th time.

Genres: action, comedy, drama, fantasy
Themes: martial arts, magic, school
To sum up Astralojia: You might ask "So, you're going to animate this right?" or "You're going to fill this in, right?" or "You're going to improve the quality of the samples (for the music), right?" or "There's going to be voice acting, right?" or "You're going to find a producer for this, right?"

And I would reply "If no one ever fills it in, produces it, voice acts it, or remixes the music, this is the finished product."

 
Updates: Every friday with the exception of the release of the first episode on independence day.
   
Watch Episodes Here:
Episode 1 Part 1

Episode 1 Part 2

Episode 1 Part 3


- Critique and Criticism goes here: here (As well as in this topic)
- If you'd like to volunteer your services (drawing, music, voice acting, etc...) there'll be opportunities in the future. Please contact me for more details.
   
Episodes as they are released:
Episode 1 - July 4th
Episode 2 - July 9th
Episode 3 - July 16th
Episode 4 Part 1 - July 23rd (Subject to Change)
         
I hope that you enjoy Astralojia, a project that I have been working on for more than 4 years. It's drawn in a simpler style, which allows me to release one episode a week, so that I can focus more on the story and music side of things.
   

On average I draw 30-40 cels of a working day over the course of 4-8 hours. Shots are drawn very quickly.
      



      
The experience is a lot like reading a manga or webcomic online. It's a lot like a cross between an animatic and a comic. My goal is to release all 78 episodes in this form.
   


Thanks for your time.

As stated above, I'm using this as a kind of test topic and test board (second to my test topic on my own forum) to prepare even further for the release on Sunday.
