      Howdy everyone!  So I’m sitting here…typing this blog with a case of sunstroke and a pinched nerve in my back. I’m not sure what happened, but earlier today I went to the beach with some friends and ended up throwing my back out.  I have a belly full of Subway sandwiches and pain relief medication, so please forgive me if this blog post isn’t my finest :P     

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


     I mean, I could have just skipped the blog but there’s no way I’m doing that.  I had a car accident back in 2016 in which I was almost killed (legitimately), and I still came home from the hospital in time for my interview with a pop culture magazine regarding Millennium Exile.  I take my commitments to you guys and this project very seriously :)  So with that all said…   LET’S JUMP INTO IT!           

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      Sweet baby fish nipples, it’s finally done….            The freaking Series plan is DONE!  In short; the series plan is a complete list of each story arc, and a breakdown of all the events that takes place within them. This is to better help myself and a studio to sit down, and go over the contents of the Millennium Exile story, in order to get a feel for how everything will unfold.  The plan is a highly summarized document, in order to give as much information as possible, in an expedited manner.     

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


       Time spent:   4 months   Pages:   101   Word Count:   49,214   Estimated Episodes:   72   This means 3 seasons of 24 episodes  or 6 seasons of 12    Now this is just the first pass through...meaning I'll now be going over and revising the document as a whole - checking things like sentence structure and whatnot.  Although this is a summarized brief, it still needs to make sense :P                

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      Let’s have a look at some updates and releases shall we?             Firstly, let’s talk about the newest character release I have Hary working on….Riku Krauser!      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


     Riku is an assassin and Blader Meister,  and speculated to be the younger brother of Julia ( featured in blog #20 ) This piece is shaping up to look freaking amazing, but you’ll have to wait for the full release for Riku’s complete character bio :)             Next up….some Demo Reel updates:   I have recently adjusted the way I am releasing demo reel artwork… As a way of giving back, all full images are now only available by becoming a Patron of the Project. This was also discussed a little more in detail in Blog #21.  These images are unlocked to all members, regardless of tier…so if you are a fan, and keen to help out, please consider heading over to the link below and showing your support!   https://www.patreon.com/millenniumexile    Elmer has been working his very best to bring these scenes to life… in particular, these astonishing images from the Lan Vs. Kouru & Tetsuya portion of the demo.     

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
          
             
                  
             
          
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


       With blood still pouring from his open wounds,  Lan's body shakes uncontrollably as he slowly gets back up.  Suddenly his spiritual energy changes drastically, and Kouru and Tetsuya are taken back as the air begins to fill with a murderous intent.              

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
          
             
                  
             
          
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      Lan looks up at Kouru,   "Do you really think a little blood is going to stop me?   He says with a foreboding tone, as his voice began to distort.     "If that's the case...then you'd better THINK AGAIN!"   Lan's eyes suddenly change to that of a deep orange.    It soon becomes apparent to both Kouru and Tetsuya that they were no longer facing Lan...no, this presence was different.  It was almost as if he were now being possessed by some unrelenting force of pure carnage. A force driven by rage, who's sole focus was the elimination of all who stood in its way.                

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


       Oh boy….             In particular, let’s talk Sasuke memes….  I’m sure many of you know already what I’m talking about, however for those of you not in the know; a Sasuke meme has made its rounds across the Internet throughout the start of 2019.  The meme depicts a scene in Naruto in which Sasuke is pinned against a wall by his brother Itachi.  Well, people (for some reason) have been cutting old Itachi out of the picture (literally) and replacing him with a variety of different things.   For example:      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


    

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


    

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


          Well, our boy Setsuna joined the meme status thanks to fan of the project: Tyler Smalley (  @reddead405  ) I have to admit, I laughed my ass off when I saw this :P

Howdy everyone!

So I’m sitting here…typing this blog with a case of sunstroke and a pinched nerve in my back.
I’m not sure what happened, but earlier today I went to the beach with some friends and ended up throwing my back out.

I have a belly full of Subway sandwiches and pain relief medication, so please forgive me if this blog post isn’t my finest :P

I mean, I could have just skipped the blog but there’s no way I’m doing that.
I had a car accident back in 2016 in which I was almost killed (legitimately), and I still came home from the hospital in time for my interview with a pop culture magazine regarding Millennium Exile.

I take my commitments to you guys and this project very seriously :)
So with that all said…

LET’S JUMP INTO IT!

 
its done.png

Sweet baby fish nipples, it’s finally done….

 

The freaking Series plan is DONE!

In short; the series plan is a complete list of each story arc, and a breakdown of all the events that takes place within them.
This is to better help myself and a studio to sit down, and go over the contents of the Millennium Exile story, in order to get a feel for how everything will unfold.

The plan is a highly summarized document, in order to give as much information as possible, in an expedited manner.

Capture.PNG

Time spent: 4 months
Pages: 101
Word Count: 49,214
Estimated Episodes: 72

This means 3 seasons of 24 episodes
or
6 seasons of 12

Now this is just the first pass through...meaning I'll now be going over and revising the document as a whole - checking things like sentence structure and whatnot. 
Although this is a summarized brief, it still needs to make sense :P 


 
moving forward.png

Let’s have a look at some updates and releases shall we?

 

Firstly, let’s talk about the newest character release I have Hary working on….Riku Krauser!

Riku WIP.png

Riku is an assassin and Blader Meister, and speculated to be the younger brother of Julia (featured in blog #20)
This piece is shaping up to look freaking amazing, but you’ll have to wait for the full release for Riku’s complete character bio :)

 

Next up….some Demo Reel updates:

I have recently adjusted the way I am releasing demo reel artwork…
As a way of giving back, all full images are now only available by becoming a Patron of the Project.
This was also discussed a little more in detail in Blog #21.

These images are unlocked to all members, regardless of tier…so if you are a fan, and keen to help out, please consider heading over to the link below and showing your support!

    you guys rock.png

    You guys have already made such a massive difference in supporting this project and I cannot thank you enough. Every dollar not only helps the project, but it also supports the various artists from around the world who work on it.
    And it's not only contribution amount that matters, with each name that's attached to this Patreon page - the better the project looks to a studio when it comes time to pitch :) 

    The project is currently receiving $70 a month from you guys in it's first week being on Patreon and 100% of the proceeds are going towards the Millennium Exile artwork and I'm hoping to eventually have enough to pay for a professional score throughout the Demo Reel.  Music can be an extremely powerful tool when used in a production and is something often overlooked.

    With such amazing & talented voice actors already attached, it sets the bar quite high to polish this as much as possible!

    whats being planned.png

    Well as you might have already seen, I am currently working with Hary to bring you guys a very special image...

    This image will depict a specific scene from the end of the final fight with Xarus, and shows Vincent in his never before seen God form with his Overdrive Plus (the "Abyss" gauntlet) on one hand, and an unsealed god killer: "The Diablo Blade" in the other!   

    I plan for this image to be a special promotion piece that I'm going to pass on to all Patrons (in high resolution), as a thanks to those of you currently supporting the project :) 
    Very rarely do I upload high res artwork, and I'm currently planning more exclusive bonuses to come!

    moving forward.png

    Iv'e just come off the end of a VERY busy few months... having started a new job (in a field that required much of my time to study), doing interviews through various media outlets regarding MillEx, and I've been getting several requests to visit public and private schools to teach children about Anime, Manga and Millennium Exile!
    I won't go into to it too much here, as I'll be covering all this in the next few blogs :) 

    I'm also currently preparing myself to run my very first a panel for a convention. I've been invited to attend as a guest talk about being a western creator in the Anime genre.
    More info on that to come in the next few weeks :) 

    This blog is also getting resurrected - I'm sorry for being so slack!
    I have plenty of awesome news to share with you all, so expect more updates here, as well as some previously mentioned ones (for those of you who follow the project on Facebook).

    Iv'e been doing quite a lot since I last posted on the website, and it's time I caught you all up to speed!
