The White Snake Chronicles-Chapter 0

Share Collapse

Drawn by hand, this took roughly 6 months to complete everything! 3-4 months to animate, and the remainder of the time to erase overlapping lines, do special effects, get the lineart colored and shaded, and then to do the video editing. Each frame of character animation is its own individual png file.

Please do enjoy the finished product!

Good for your effort, but why would you frame-by-frame it?

WhiteSnakeChronicles responds:

During early test development, the character animator had no knowledge of using Flash or Toon Boom, and due to time constraints, she chose to continue animating by hand.

The artwork's not bad, but the plot, if one can call it that is pretty generic, and the fight could be a lot better, the pacing is way too slow. Especially for the feel you're going for. If you were to up the framerate, that would help a lot.

Good, but how come all her attacks are tentacle related (other than her sword and petals)?

WhiteSnakeChronicles responds:

They aren't tentacles haha. They are thorny vines. Roses have thorns, yes?


Yes! I've been waiting patiently for this to come out and it was well worth it. I love it! It's original, well animated, good action and most of all it's universal. A series I will def be following.
Looking forward to next Chapter.

WhiteSnakeChronicles responds:

Thank you for remaining so patient!! The workload had become overwhelming, but that obstacle was pushed through, and the finished product is how it stands, today!!
