As is evident to anyone browsing my gallery, for the last few months I have been working hard on creating my own animated series, "Serafina's Saga." My 2-D animation skills, or lack thereof, are mostly self-taught. Over the last couple of years I have earned a certificate in graphic design and animation, but my animation education centered around 3-D environments. I have always loved 2D animation--there is something special about watching hand-drawn frames--so I took what I'd learned about various programs and motion graphics to embark on creating my own hand-drawn animation.

Given the dedication and time this project requires, I may not be able to finish the entire series in animated form; I might conclude the story in the form of a visual novel or something like that, if at all. But I am determined to finish the first episode of "Serafina's Saga," which will be about 15 minutes long or so, and at this point I am about halfway done. It has been both exciting and exhausting to bring one of my stories to life. The best part has been working with some fantastic voice actors. But I spent about a month convinced that I would give up on the project because I was very discouraged by the lack of attention or interest I've managed to gather thus far. Eventually I decided I needed to finish this project, not for anyone else, but myself, so I dove back in and now I'm on the home stretch.

And here is a scene to help entice you: fav.me/d5wpby0

The series also has a website (www.serafinasaga.com/) and tumblr (thecrazyanimator.tumblr.com/)

Working on this project has been one of the most challenging endeavors of my life, requiring a huge amount of work, training, and dedication with (so far) practically zero external reward. Any feedback or blatant encouragement you may feel inclined to offer is greatly appreciated :) and I hope that, eventually, you will enjoy the finished result.
