Merry Melony 2 Peek 01 by Drobile Merry Melony 2 Peek 01 by Drobile
I will be periodically posting screenshots and concept art for Merry Melony 2 as it gets completed...nothing that will give away any spoilers per se...but if you want to keep it secret till it's done, stay away from my blog and deviant art.

So here is a background plate for an early sequence in MM2. I am striving for a photographic, home-movie feel where lighting is never perfect and camera flaws are evident. As soon as I get my hands on a newer version of Flash I will be implementing things like rack focus and motion blur. I am also shying away from some of the older drafting techniques used in MM1, black outlines for instance. Thusly, Melony herself has undergone a bit of a makeover but it is nothing too drastic...I would never hear the end of it if I changed her too much. :)

:omfg: I really like how you drew the focus right to the moon, and the clouds look great :D :+fav:, awesome effect

I also saw "-The Animator and the Seat-" (I actually saw it a few months ago when I was sent the link to the official page (your link doesn't seem to work for me :shrug: [this one: [link] ] ), putting other chairs that were alive was an awesome idea :D (makes you think the whole world of chairs has revolted, and not that it's one freak occurence).

Rack focus? I hope I learn about that when I study animation.
I'm looking forward to MM2. The first was very very strange and I like that about it.
Oh yeah, what program did you use to produce the backgrounds? I'm trying to find a suitable program to draw backgrounds because Flash is really difficult to use when it comes to making tidy backgrounds.

Oh and rack focus is when something in the foreground is blurred out and the background is in focus...or visa versa. You see it a lot in film with camera focus.

Those are some good visual ideas for a sequel. It will help to separate it from the rest and make it original.

I still remember watching the first Merry Melony fifteen times in a row when it first surfaced in the NG Portal.

I was actually thinking of the original background music for it yesterday.

Needless to say, this has me awfully excited. :)

Awesome, I had been afraid you'd abandoned Merry Melony. Good to see that you're still working on it. Animated Mall Monkeys is next right?
