Managed to get through 4 more jpeg sequence done tonight. Quite pleased with that.

Two more down. If I get the remaining non-color jpegs together in twos, it should just take about a week if all goes well.

Completed another 2 sequences for the colour animatic (pre-colour). I feel satisfied that I made that level of progress today.

The sequence I am currently exporting in jpeg format is rather complicated and I don't think I'll be doing anymore work on it tonight. Will try and work extra hard on it tomorrow.

Another sequence has been prepared for the colour animatic. That's all.

Did one sequence today. Took quite a long time to do. I've no idea now when I'll finish the colour animatic.

Did a little bit more work on the animatic frames. Nothing else to report.

Still collecting frames to colour in. Colour animatic is taking longer than expected. Will get right back onto it tomorrow. Right now I need to do some job searching.

Didn't get up to that much this evening. Not feeling too good. Will try and work harder when I start to feel better.

I've started automating the adding of the glints for the eyes in this animatic so that they remain the same and do not jitter during playback.

I did as much colouring in as I could find time for today. Will press on with the colour animatic tomorrow. Quite pleased actually. Act one is now out of the way, so only two thirds of the animatic remain to be coloured in.

Still working on the colouring. I'm not sure if this method is ideal as I always have to re-draw certain details such as the twinkles in each of the characters' eyes. I think I ought to find a way of replicating each frame so that these details keep in place.

I am working as hard as I can, but Photoshop is proving to be completely unreliable and crashing at any given opportunity. Hopefully this won't persist as I'm going to be working on the comic strip as well.
