A few months ago I started short animation in homage to the Touhou Project game “Mystic Square”. I’m a massive long time Touhou Project overall (2013 was ages ago yall’).
Not everyone can appreciate the sheer adrenaline rush from playing the games, they almost always have a masterful soundtrack that accompanies absolutely B R U T A L gameplay. The joy I get from Touhou is hard to express, but animation is the most perfect medium to try doing so. Here are just some progress GIFS. Can’t say if I’ll finish it since I tend to drop interest in long projects like a hot potato lol, and I feel like the animation is already outdated. Onto other things.
This is the storyboard animatic I did.
