I've noticed this collab has been at a stand still for some time. If there are any parts that are free I'll take up another part.

Nice song, amigo. 5ed.
I'll give an honest rundown of all the ideas I've shuffled through, started, and then switched to something else. Also, keep in mind the line I'm working on has "Living my life isn't hard enough."
I started with the idea of a guy in a Dodge Viper getting chased by the cops, but in his attempt to evade the police, he hits a guardrail and goes flying off a cliff. I had a decent outline for the Viper, but ultimately, I decided to scrap the idea because I felt the end result wasn't going to be nearly as good as the other two lines I've done. I'd rather not downgrade and deviate from what I've done already.
The next idea was to have a teenage girl get stranded on a city rooftop at gunpoint from terrorists. She'd then become a Phoenix, and then incinerate the whole lot of them, but I didn't get too far with that.
After that, I decided to go for a "War never changes" idea that first starts off with a wounded knight sitting against a building as the rest of his army charges through a town using warhorses and chariots. The knight would then fade into an American Civil War soldier, and the same would happen with the rest of the army, the chariots becoming wagons and canons. Then the Civil War soldiers would fade into modern day USMC marines, the canons and warhorses would fade into M1A1 tanks and Bradley Linebackers, and so on. I scrapped that because I knew that would take me forever to do, and I didn't get very far with trying to draw the knight with armor.
On top of all that, I've been busy as hell. Its not a matter of having Writer's Block, but probably exactly the opposite, having too many ideas and not being able to commit to one. What I'm working now is futuristic post-apocalyptic battle where modern day military vehicles have gotten a futuristic makeover. The main focus will be on the gunner of a Hind-D helicopter that has become more like a futuristic hovercraft gunship. Originally, I was going to make it a mech, but it didn't come out that great. I might still have mechs in the final animation, but they won't be the main focus. Still, I'm sticking with this idea, the outline for the gunship came out great and I know everything else should be smoothly done after that.
I am definitely working on this and not giving up, but I've hit a few snags. I hate the idea that I had a whole month and don't have much to show for it, but that's probably not too far off from the truth. Like Coldreaver, I want this last part of mine to be better than the other two I've done, and I finally think I've got the stuff to do that.
Still, thanks for being patient.
