    So, my brudda does the voices while I do the "animations".

    Don't watch, not safe for humans

    Playlist of the series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6PlVRwLL7n8fJj10ESWJlkjiWDhnvHAv

    Episode list: (In order of release)

    1. Sonic Invents a New Sport
    2. Knuckles Converts Sonic to a Morman
    3. Silver's Dank Weed Quest
    4. Knuckle's Wild Dream
    5. Sonic Learns About Climate Change
    6. IN PROGRESS

    This series is a labor of cancer between me and my brother. We got the idea because we are dumb, and it kinda snowballed from there. It started relatively normally, as you can see with Sonic Invents a New Sport, and then it dropped.

    Knuckles Converts Sonic to a Morman
    was the first divergent video where the series started finding it's own style, adding new personalities to old characters. And it doubled the animation from 3 frames to a whooping 6!

    Silver's Dank Weed Quest is the highlight of the series for me. It is the first video we put actual effort in, and it paid off. It combines bad voice acting with confusing characters, tight lines, and animation that complements the style of the series. In it's dumbassery it reached a sort of campy nirvana where you enjoy the series for being so awfully great.

    Knuckle's Wild Dream was the most ambitious video we had come up with ever. It needed a new art style, and we wanted to take advantage of it's dream setting by making even weirder characters and animation for it. It ended badly, as the full weight of the animation crashed down upon me, and it had 10 MONTHS between it and the last video. I think it paid off, as it is a nice change of pace from the last 3 videos.

    Sonic Learns About Climate Change is the latest in the series, and had 5 months between it and the 4th video. 4 of those months was me procrastinating on the video. I animated the first half with the best animation the series had seen yet, and then I stopped. It became a common question to ask me about the video, and I just kept saying soon. I suddenly remembered it around the 16th of January, and then I animated the second half and procrastinated another 3 days after that. So on the 19th of January I finally released it.

    I don't know when I'll be working on the sixth video, but I will work on it. I found out how to beat my procrastination with the 5th video, and I hope to use it to keep a better schedule with the series.

    So, how bad is it?

    I got the audio files for the next video mid June, and planned to have it done and released by the beginning of July. I had an ultimate procrastination though, and I've nearly two months to make this

    Next time you think you're lazy, just remember that.

    If it's gonna be Sonic-themed, I'm challenging you to make something even more fucked up than Sonic Dreams.

    Man, I thought 2 months was bad....

    I originally made the script for the 5th episode back at the end of AUGUST

    My brother did the voice acting, and I quickly animated the first half of it. Then, I just kinda stopped. I didn't really feel interested enough to go in and do the white board scene of it, and I left it dormant.

    But ehh. Crappy overpowered useless weapons seem to make me productive. I finished the animating, and I should be getting the video ready soon.

    Also, for those of you who don't care, here is how much harder the animating has become.

    Sonic Invents a New Sport: 3 Frames

    Knuckles Converts Sonic to a Mormon: 6 Frames

    Silver's Dank Weed Quest: 27 Frames

    Knuckles' Wild Dream: 36 Frames

    New Video: 45 Frames

    I like the dumb premise of this series, but it's defiantly getting harder to animate it by mouse only. And you might say "ehhh that ain't a whole lot of frames!"

    You're kinda right, but I've also raised the amount of work that has gone into each frame. Compare frames from the 2nd video to the 4th. This raise in quality and quantity has come at a price, speed. Though the second half of the new video returns to the less detailed style in the 2nd video, the first half is the highest quality detailing I have done in the series. I'm hoping to return to the quality of the first half of the fifth video with the next one we do.

    Hell, even the video length has doubled between every video (Up to the fifth one)

    So, what can we learn from this? Better stuff takes a lot longer!

    We are now under the power of Lordess Chris Chan, she demands this site be called CWC BBS Forums or else she will rain down Sonichu medallions upon us.
