Hey NG... I'm Chase! I'm the animator on a new addition to the portal, Koden X.
Koden X is a series made by myself and co-creator Robert (NG s/n Winzra).
After years of planning, character developing, story structure, world design and history; our prized possession has finally incarnated into its fetal state.
Today we released Koden X Prologue Part 1.
Koden X follows the young man, Winzra, in his journey across a world unknown to him; relating to people not of his kin.
I want to thank you all for all of the positive as well as constructive feedback you've been leaving. I am so happy and blessed to see so many people enjoyed this first episode, and let me tell you it was quite a learning stage. Part 2 of the Prologue is already in works, and we are heading it off strong. This prologue only tips the Ice Burg that is the story of Koden, so I'm glad you all are excited for the road ahead.
Animating has proven to be quite a challenge in narrative form. I found myself particularly struggling with consistency in character form and review. While changing shots I tend to tweak the character's traits more and more each time, its rather frustrating. However, each new process is a growing period. I've learned so much and had so much fun animating part 1 I cannot wait to show you all whats in store for the next 3 parts of the Prologue! Let alone starting the actual main story line! :D
Newgrounds has been such a caring home to me for so long. I remember when it WAS simply celebrity assassination games back in 2000.... Ha.... Seems not at all too long ago when NG main competitor was Stick figure death theatre (www.sfdt.com) funny huh? :D
But here we are, posting our first true finished project here on Newgrounds and so happy to share it with you all.
Thank you for the warm welcome NG..... We won't let you down!
