SUMMER UPDATE

Hi all!

Expect more blog type updates to be in video form in the future. This will likely be one of my last done in this manner. but I’m recovering from being sick all week and my voice and face are not ready for human consumption >__<

Here is a quick look at some of the stuff I got cooking for you:

So I’m wrapping up the final stages of layout and title dressing etc. on a few booklets for my patreon peeps (the above image is a quick snap of one of them).  This includes the preview reader copy of Metaphysical Neuroma Volume 1

Next week I’m starting work on the prototype sculpt for Kaiju Kitty and gearing up for the related Kickstarter campaign (my first Kickstarter! A smaller campaign Intended as a trial run to help me prepare for the bigger campaign that will follow for printed Metaphysical Neuroma volume 1)

Also ongoing adding guided view functionality for the website on mobile platforms and revealing/unlocking  a few of the other tangental story parts on the website. This includes the flashback/dream sequences in chronological order with the alternate dialogue.

And and and, some time this month (the weather hasn’t been co-operating!) I’ll be shooting a bunch of the remaining footage of the sculpture puppets I made  for We Waited the first mini film related to Metaphysical Neuroma.  So I’ll be sharing some of that  and the creation of the related matte paintings, process etc.

So excited!! Lot’s of fun stuff in the works hope you are excited too!

Gonna go toss some coffee in an IV bag and get back to it-

more soon!

Update and Schedule plan

This Is a repost via my Patreon page found here: https://www.patreon.com/attila

Hi all,

I’ve come up with a work schedule as part of a plan to organize my activity on the social webs and wanting to find a way to make my patreon updates more a central part of my daily activity both for patrons and for potential fans of my work.

While the central focus of my long term effort this year is to have the first filmed episode of Metaphysical Neuroma it’s still going to take a lot to get there!

To that end I still got to spend a heap of time soapboxing and sharing to build my audience to a sustainable size to keep everything in motion. But your donations, membership through patreon and patronage is helping so much with offsetting the cost of materials and keeping the wolves at bay!

Now that I’ve taken the time out to do a soft launch on

TILTy Toys I can get back to more of a regularly scheduled program and it will look something like this:

Monday: A mix of Music, Mold making  and Metaphysical Neuroma Sharing process in my soundtracking endeavours and how music plays into my process as well as general talk about the short term long term plans I have for the story and on days when I’m making toys I’ll talk and share tips about mold making.

Tuesday: All about toys! The toys I’m designing and have planned through TILTy Toys the ones I got for sale and the crazy customs I do as well as talking about old ones I love like Battle beasts and Kinnikuman 

Wednesday:  Will be about the webcomics and in general webbing it up!

(what ever that means?)  But you can expect some generalized comic talk to get mixed in here because Wednesday is still new comic day in my head.

Thursday: this will be all about throwbacks and thanks

with an undercurrent of think tanking. So a mix of old stuff you might not know about mixed in with sharing ideas I’m cooking up while I soap box about some of the amazing people in my life!

Friday: A day about film and by extension tv and animation

. From short animation tests to talking about the stuff I’m watching.  As cumulation of the weeks efforts I’m going to aim eventually to have a filmed recap of the week and hopefully you can start to see the whole pattern to the plan coming together!

Saturday: Well I hope to spend that time with the ladies and getting out to conventions and shows etc. I think it only makes sense to make Saturday a day for showcasing and sales ! Yeah I’m just gonna full on embrace capitalisim and survival

and say ¥€$ to your money and give you even more reasons to give it to me!

Sunday:  A return of Sunday Sketches

but more of a generalized sketching platform and a way to force myself to remain in the habit of drawing while I’m working in other mediums and give myself time to do some fan service with sketch give aways!

Ok so there it is I’ll be reposting it elsewhere as a reference guide for folks that will be new to my work and for updates about where to find related links like the Twitch/YouTube channel or related links etc

Hope you are excited too!

More soon!!

MID FEBRUARY UPDATE

took a little time away from blog updates while I was in hyper focus mode working on some sculptures. Some of you may have seen if you subscribe to my Instagram or Vine feeds.

 

Here is a peek into the sort of stuff I’m talking about:

It’s all been part of a process that took a while to ruminate. The issue being that What I intended to do with Metaphysical Neuroma long term was divergent from what webcomics are typically getting to be known as which has matured into something that is highly focused on delivering PDF compatible daily/weekly strips and does not favour things that don’t fit inside that box.

So it’s taken a while to catch my bearings on exactly how to allow Metaphysical Neuroma to evolve and to make proper use of my Patreon  page to work together without diminishing the narrative I’ve been working towards but still being able to have a simple articulate message you can voice in, on or through the various social media channels.

 

Right now I won’t go too far into what it took to get here ( But I will post separately an insight piece for anyone wanting to attempt anything as off the beaten path as I have.)

Instead I am just letting you all know to stay tuned as I put together the next chapter of this story and start talking about the process involved in making a SUPERTOYNAMATIONCOMIC ( a Portmanteau I devised to explain the techniques and as a nod to Supermarionation )

Hope I’ve gotten you a little interested by now–But–as much of what I can do and how quickly I’ll be able to make it happen–relies heavily in getting more fans of my work involved in my Patreon Campaign. In advance I will apologies for the public spectacle of soap boxing and organ grinding I will need to do regarding the collection hat/tip jar that is crowd funding.

Alright alright enough words you guys probably all stopped reading after the first paragraph.

Thanks much for listening
-More soon

Happy Friday all!

 

Hi all happy Friday to you!

 

So my mold experiments are finished the first round with some success.

and some happy accidents ;P

IMG_7177 And this means I’ll be able to add some mini-donuts as payola to some of my Patreon Patrons woot!

anyway if you want to see more pics follow me on instagram and if you want to get in on the freebies and toy Payola then consider becoming my Patron on my Patreon!

I gotta run off now I’m working on a larger scale figure that I will be posting about all next week and I gotta get cracking if I’m gonna make my own deadlines.

No rest for the coffee tweakers!
Laterz!!

Making molds

Hi all,
So the last few days I’ve been juggling work between a larger figure sculpt (to be revealed next week) and doing some mold making for a few of the smaller figures I’ve done over the last month or so.

Thought I’d share a quick few snaps with the promise of a more detailed tutorial share to follow later when I have the time to write the details out.

Lil’Thulhu is the 2nd limited run figure in the DesktopBuddies Series and will be available at my BigCartel shop real soon! you can See Lil’Narwhal here: http://600poundgorilla.bigcartel.com/product/lil-narwal

More soon!

Phatty says “Groundhog-yup that’s what I is–if there are snacks involved!”

Happy GroundHog day peeps!
(winter can’t end soon enough for me this year)
As promised here are a few more snaps of the nearly finished Phatty!

Enjoy!

Blog up and running

Today I finished touching up some of the CSS behaviour of this new bare bones-minimized-less bells and whistles-blog. Still took a bit of work and I haven’t tackled fonts yet but I’ll tweaking things as I go.

For those of you that don’t know this–This ‘Blawg’ was create after the realization that the fancy playground website I had painstakingly created over several months last year (currently here: www.attilathe.com ) simply wasn’t getting the traction I had hoped for. And after a bunch of conversations with friends and fans I realized it’s just not what they wanted from me.  (the best way to improve your relationship with fans is listen  to them!)

The consensus was that the peeps want:

• more of my sculptures/toys
(btw – https://www.instagram.com/attilaadorjany/ )

• They want to interact with me from mobile devices and at events.

• They want my shop to be less hidden

(btw – http://600poundgorilla.bigcartel.com/ )

Thus the stripped down blog, focus on sculpts, and push to simplify the way I share and or sell what I do.

If you want to help please let folks know by sharing a link to this site and I’m gonna get back to it!

Thanks much!

A central blog to share everything!

IMG_6850Hi everyone!

Found myself coming back to needing a central place to post from and realized that although it had problems the WordPress blog I used to have was actually a key component to sharing all of the work I was doing.

Sooooo Zee Blawg is back!

 

In the meantime please check out – http://www.attilathe.com/ &  http://600poundgorilla.tumblr.com/ for tonnes of fun things to enjoy!

 

More soon!
