This Update Stinks!

Welp, school is over for good. I actually have been slowly picking away at this thing in earnest, but now is the time to resume full-speed. Here's a a few still shots of the things I've finished animating:

I don't want to spoil too much as I go along, but suffice to say these elements are now all fully animated.  You might be able to pick them out from the rough sketches in the animation test I posted last year; the Runaway Dog, for example, has only two frames of movement.  Orange Kid, Liar X. Agerate and Everdred have substantially more action involved.

Also, someone mentioned to me the absence of Saturn Valley in the animation test; never fear!  Although PK Flash depicts events from the game in rough chronological order and features as many characters as possible, I took many liberties and so some elements may not show up in exactly the way you remember them from the game.  Think of it as how an animated TV show would go about adapting the game.  Also, the test is only about a quarter of the way through the story- Still a long way to go!


  1. It's about time! Ha :p
    Some questions:
    -Where'd you study?
    -What do you aspire to be?

    Can't wait to see more.

  2. It's funny because I read your comments for the first time just as I was about to put up the new post! But to answer your questions:

    -I studied Classical Animation at Sheridan College in Ontario.
    -I aspire to continue making... things. What those things are, I will find out eventually.

  3. Just about to post, eh?! Another fine example of Knowledge in Waves! (the subconscious, telepathic sharing of information :p )

    Sheridan really does seem to attract top talent. I'm actually from Toronto, but I studied Video Game Development in Oshawa at UOIT.

    If you manage to finish even half this Earthbound tribute it'll make an exceptional showpiece, and not just because of the animation, but because you are capturing the essence of what Earthbound is about.

  4. I found something fun.


    Play this just as it cuts to Ness waving at his Mom. It fits eerily well...

  5. This project is so amazing!!!! Looking forward to it <3

  6. This is dead. ;o; It's DEAD, isn't it?
