Aside from polishing, I’m happy with the overall look of the characters. Well, aside from the texturing. I’m generally okay with the layout of the rabbits, but the cat needs a serious overhaul (really the only permanent thing about the cat is the colors – I plan on going for the whole Siamese look).
Next step is rigging – texturing will probably happen last after the mesh polishing. You’ll note that the female rabbit and cat have matching shapes in their arms and breasts and such, obviously I’ll need to make some adjustments in that sense.
Okay, so after spending hours adding sound effects to the podcast and other voices, I realized that the new version sounded terrible, so I’m using the one in the post below as the very first one. It honestly doesn’t sound too bad, and as long as I come up with a rational plot that “fixes” the radio a bit in later episodes, then it’s all good.
So with that in mind, I’m hoping to come up with 10 episodes.
Spoiler alert if you’d rather just hear them instead of hearing the plot ruined here, though this is more of an outline if anything.
Some ideas for episodes:
Aftershocks – The broadcaster calls out into the void.
Recovery – The broadcaster explains his situation thus far. Vows to improve his radio.
Repair – Radio sounds better now that it has been fixed.
Voice – In the middle of recording, a faint voice breaks through. The broadcaster tries to connect.
No Luck – There was no luck connecting to the mystery voice.
An army truck came into town late yesterday, with some troops. The troops carried no news. They were suspicious of everybody.
Faint radio signal playing music.
Maybe I should just end it at 8 episodes. Who knows. I’ll see how it goes.
Just a quick little update. I’m working on a male character as well. It is based on the rabbit posted earlier, but it is modified to look more male.
For the record, all of these characters have genitals. I’m just not showing them off yet. But some day!
So getting my tooth filled was a success. It didn’t really hurt aside from a few water squirts that were super sensitive. I can now say I’ve had a cavity drilled without anesthetic. Me big mucho macho man. 🙄
Except there’s still two more that need to be filled and the dentist is convinced that at least one of them would absolutely need anesthetic. So great. Problem not solved.

Sort of a quick update since not much has changed.
So in the past two days, I completed clothing for two of the starting three characters. Once I complete clothing, I can work on rigging and texturing.
Once that is done, I’ll create mockup scenery and work on the actual game.
Here’s one of the main characters (temporary texturing for both the body and clothing).
I asked a friend to donate her voice. That should help!
This is what I put together about a year ago. I’m hoping to improve upon it. I tried to go for ultra realism, but I feel I need to make it a little bit more… what’s the word… comprehensible?
As each episode goes on, the person broadcasting will improve his broadcasting equipment, so the very first episode is sort of supposed to sound like crap.
Anyway, here’s a raw, rather unedited “example” of the atmosphere that I was going for. Ideally when I redo this recording, there will be other messages in the background, the voice will be a little more clear, and the static won’t be as annoying.
Headphone users be warned! It can get loud!
So tomorrow I get to deal with the joy of having one of my teeth drilled without anesthetic.
It’s been a while. Too long, probably. I miss doing this. Honestly, I miss it every time. I could probably write a book consisting of chapters all talking about how it’s been so long since I last wrote.
In this case though, the reason I’m writing again is because for once, I feel like I have something to write about. Things are going well. I’ve found a healthy outlet for numerous interests I’ve had over time.
Alright, so, what am I up to?
Yep. I have a project going in 3D Animation. Currently referred to only as “Wolfpine Chronicles,” it’s actually going to be an assortment of mini-games and comics, ultimately leading up to a decent furry dating-sim game. Here’s a couple of the characters in progress. I really need to fix their feet.
Whelp, it’s October, so I’m pretty sure I missed the ball on the podcast I need to start on October 16, but I might as well go for it anyway. I want to create a historical fictional podcast about the Cuban Missile Crisis. Pretty specific, but it’s something that intrigues me. Well okay, the situation itself doesn’t really intrigue me, but the random direction I want to throw it in does. If all goes well, I should honestly be able to get something thrown up, but we’ll see. In an ideal situation, I’d pull together at least one or two additional people to help, me with some voices, but who knows.
So hey, if you see a note somewhere about a podcast on the 16th of October, then hooray!
