Actually, it was quite a miracle that it arrives, for you just put my name on the parcel, and not the name of the company (there are 10 other people living at the same address). We were lucky to meet the postman after lunch ! :mrgreen:

Update on A Crooked Heart

I've been busy working on the backgrounds and animations for A Crooked Heart and I'm way overdue for a update post.
Sorry for the long post. I couldn't figure out how to post a Youtube playlist.

Sorry, I thought I responded to this post.

I use Photoshop for the backgrounds and TvPaint for everything else.
I would like to use TvPaint for backgrounds eventually but I am so used to Photoshop that it's hard to transition.

I use a 1 pixel brush with the normal switches turned on like stroke thickness based on pressure so it's not like I couldn't do that in TvPaint. I use the one pixel with the occasional increase so I can keep it dirty and force myself to cross hatch to get certain texture and shade. It's tedious but I like it.
But I have a lot of custom brushes that I use when adding texture like wall grunge, blood and stuff. If I could transfer those brushes or learn how to build custom brushes then I could make a slow move to exclusively using TvPaint. Which would be awesome because I believe the program has that ability.

But I'll be on Photoshop fro everything but animation because it's never a good idea to switch programs and workflow in the middle of a production. Unless you have some idiot producer that doesn't care. In that case you find a bottle of gin, go to the bathroom and cry.
