Hello everyone.  Yes you read correctly.  I'm picking up where I left off.  Now DoD is NOT my main focus anymore, and never will be again, but I'd like to finish the series.

Those of you who read the episode synopses for how the series plays out know the basic plot of how the story unfolds.  But, I did make some tweaks to the episodes, as well I didn't put everything in so not to worry, there are still plenty of surprises, as well as of course now you get to actually see it all.  I've really come into my own as an artist now, and sprites/sprite animations are relatively easy for me so things should progress with quite some style and even some improvements.  Even though if you liked eps. 5 p2's style, that will be the basic standard for the series in terms of quality and style.  Now I want to remind people of somethings about similarities to other sprite series on here, that were all coincidental between us, and were cleared up a little over two years ago now.

Basilisx, SMBZ - Turns people to stone without any limits.  Like Dabura from DBZ, as Alvin once said.

Shadow can do this in my series, but he can't do it at will.  He needs to have enough, anger, hate, and dark essence within him to turn people to stone.  I haven't displayed how he does it yet, but that's coming soon, and if you read my basic synopses for the series on DA, you know how at least by reading and picturing it.

Heaven and hell concepts with sonic characters, Sonic GX - I did heavy research for DoD, and had the idea long before he did and our concepts of it were portrayed very differently.

So bottom line, this is just a refresher and reminder.  No one copied anyone, just enjoy the damn series without any bitching.

And as far as the stone idea goes, since it's a heavy concept in my story.  Check the dates that my movies were submitted. My eps. 3, where eggman was turned to stone, and my Intro Revamp where the koopa bros were turned to stone all by shadow.  Came out way before SMBZ 8.

Also, re-read my little disclaimer message at the beginning of eps. 5p2 for an added refresher.

So that's it there.

With that said nearly all the sprites for the series are finished.  I got people helping me.  And don't fret about me not animating for a while, because just because I posted nothing in two years animation wise, doesn't mean I don't practice, or remember. ;)

P.S. Don't badger me when the next eps. comes out.  It doesn't make me work faster, I'm doing this for fun, and if one thing has been shown in the last couple of years, is that bitchy fans have made people lose motivation, and quit.

I huess basalix has a less disgusting way to turn people into stone. Seeming Dabura from DBZ spits on them... poor Piccolo and Krillin :(

this is certenly a surprise, i never expected you to come back to it, i hope you will be able to continue it without the nagging of other, will you be needing the weapons for the chaos beasts? if so, i have already 2 or 3 done, things have gotten quite busy on my half so i haven't been able to work on them much, plus i'm afraid i've forgotten a few details of some of the weapons you've requested, however if you do need my assistance in any way, i'd be honered to help.

how've you been? it's been a while

If you have the time I could use a flaming bow and arrow for Iblis.

And I'm starting to do better. My health is improving, and my screaming is making great strives.

And you?

This journal has motivated me to go back into spriting. Thank you for that shade, =) I think it's time i try to step up on my part, Who knows, maybe i'll be able to make a sprite series one day. But this is awesome dude, Can't wait to see this again, a great series and more to come, I remember reading the synopses when you first posted it on DA, I always love reading story's and watching it in all one awesome sprite series. Awesome dude Rock on Bro :headbang:
