While the vote was nice enough to give me more time to finish the story as a whole, I figured those that wanted something now at least deserved a teaser. Here are some of the story shots.
I am back on track and confident for a quick finish, I am still going to use the term “soon” just in case anything else happens. I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up to high yet.
I think people are right when they say I shouldn’t give deadlines. Life has a way of making it hard to hit them (unless I find a way to make a living off this, rather then just upkeep cash). I am pretty far with Chapter 5, but ran out of time getting a few of the images done. I now have the dilemma of posting what I have done now, and the rest later (like I did with Chapter 2 and 3) or holding off a few more days to finish the rest and post it all at once (like Chapter 1).
What would you guys want? I am letting you guys decide to make my own life a little easier today. Unlike the last poll, this one will determine what I decide to do tonight, so it will have a very limited time frame. Get voting!
What would you prefer?
- Post what you have now and the last bit later. I am starving. (43%, 221 Votes)
- Just give it another few days. We can wait. (57%, 291 Votes)

Verdict: Looks like you guys are just as conflicted as me. However, it seems clear most want me to take my time and finish it up, so I will. Crossing my fingers it will be “soon”.
I know what half of you are thinking. “Rexx, what the fuck is taking so long with the video you piece of shit!”
First all I got to say is, woah! Watch the potty mouth! You kiss your mother with those lips?
Second, it’s coming along well but for me to get it where I want it to be the render time is going to be pretty heavy. Not super heavy, but I expect at least two weeks of just rendering out the scenes, not counting all the animations I have yet to get done. Considering I want to get the next story chapter of Hellfire out, this means I may have to push the video into March. Sorry.
To make up for it though, I figured I would show a base image of where the original “Part 2″ was going, and a new teaser image of how it looks now after retooling the setup. Sorry the new teaser is not animated, the time to render all 600 frames of the one shot would cause me to go crazy today with all the stress from work (the old one already had this draft rendered out, so no crazies)
In further news. The video is coming along well, but I really want to get this part of the story done, so I am going to focus on this and then go back to the video once it’s finished. Hopefully it won’t take too long, planning for one week of images.
