Mopiness of Doom: Progress as of October 15th

Greetings all! Tallest Rose here once again to give you all an idea of what we’ve been up to in the SW production of the Invader Zim episode Mopiness of Doom!

So things have been going along as always this past month. Sarah and I got some segments of future scenes completed for the trailer. Ah yes, I’m not sure if I had mentioned it before, but we’re creating the official trailer for Mopiness of Doom! If things stay on schedule as it is, we should have the trailer released on youtube sometime early November.

Well there’s nothing else new to say, other than that Tallest Sarah and I are still rolling along with the animation production. I’m looking forward to the day that we can actually get our sound producers (currently on standby) to compose a music soundtrack and add sound effects for the episode.

Sorry for the short post this month! To make up for it, here are some screenshots from the Mopiness of Doom production! Enjoy! 😀

Oh, and don’t forget about our t-shirt design contest that’s running all this month! The deadline is now at the extended date of October 31st (was originally sooner, but had to be moved due to some conflicts).

Til next time!

Art Contest: Invader Zim Tshirt Design!

Hey there all of you Invader Zim fans! Ready for another contest? 🙂

So Gir’s in a bit of a bind at the moment. You see, he’s secretly been designing all of the tshirts and such for the popular store Hot Topic (which probably explains all of the Gir, piggy, and the occasional ‘scary monkey’ merchandise). But he’s run out of ideas! He couldn’t get Zim or Dib to help him out, and Nick only writes ‘happy’ on his t-shirt design ideas, so now Gir has come to YOU to help him come up with new t-shirt designs!

So in a nutshell, this is your chance to design your very own Invader Zim t-shirt! Simply download the shirt template available at the bottom of this post, and design away! Once you’ve finished, you can submit your entry to our Deviant Art group or SW Forum gallery starting Monday September 19 until October 23rd.

And now for the rules! (Sorry, but we’ve gotta have ’em!)

1. T-shirt submissions are not limited to artwork designs – even if you simply type in a funny IZ-related phrase/quote on the shirt, that counts as a submission! The only requirement for the contents of the shirt is that the shirt is related to the Invader Zim series.

2. If you do put images on the shirt, they MUST be your own original artwork. You cannot use clip art or other people’s artwork. If this rule is violated, it will result in immediate disqualification.

3. Submissions will only be accepted within our deviant art group or by submitting it to a specific contest folder in our SW forums.

4. A shirt containing profane language or crude imagery within the design will NOT be accepted.

5. There is a limit of 3 submissions per person.

6. The t-shirt image must be saved as either a JPEG or PNG file.

Mopiness of Doom: Progress as of September 15th

Hello everyone! Tallest Rose here again to give you a little update as to how our progress in production of Mopiness of Doom is coming along!

We’re still doing the usual, me working on the Membrane Labs and Zim house scenes, while Sarah cleans up the animation for the Skool cafeteria scene. However, we’re putting most of our effort (for the next two weeks) into a semi-secret project… I can guaranteed that you’ll like what we’re going to show you this October. But until then, I’m afraid I can’t say more!

I apologize for the short post, but I’m rather busy at the moment. Later when I get a chance, I’ll post some new screenshots!

Til next time!

Character Contest Winner’s Guest Appearance!

I WAS going to include this within the Mopiness of Doom progress report, but I thought this deserved an entry all of its own. The winner of our April Character Contest, Kila630, is making an appearance in the episode Mopiness of Doom in the Skool Cafeteria. Here’s a little preview for all of you curious little Irkens out there ;D  In case you didn’t know, Kila630’s character is the girl standing there in the goggles holding the lunch tray. She’s not that half-rabid girl taking up the lower right of the screen. xD

Well, till next time!

Mopiness of Doom: Progress Report (August 2011)

Hey guys! Tallest Rose here with a little update as to how things are going with our production of the Invader Zim episode Mopiness of Doom!

Tallest Rose has at last completed the animatics for the Skool cafeteria scene, and has now moved on to the creation of the backgrounds for the following scene that takes place in the Membrane Labs. Rose will be uploaded a few backgrounds for viewing on the SWdeviant art group soon. Along with the usual work on the episode, Rose is also drafting out an official trailer for Mopiness of Doom, which will be uploaded to the SW youtube channel as soon as it’s complete.

Tallest Sarah, on the otherhand, has been busily humming away at the final leg of animation for the Membrane Kitchen scene. She completed the robotic cat’s transformation sequence (screenshots can be view below), and is now working on a few additional segments of the cat’s ‘attack’ on the Membrane kitchen, which involves blowing things up with its disastrous lasers and narrowly missing Dib and Membrane. Boy, I don’t know how Membrane will manage to clean that mess of a kitchen. Maybe he’ll commission Dib to scrub it clean with a piece of a sponge?

Well that’s all we have to report for now! Thanks for reading!
