I didn’t want to make this post because I was afraid that people would get too excited about the idea and then I would feel pressured to finish the story yet here I am . . .
That sounds like bragging but let me explain:
I have been a long time user and fan of Episode, and only till recently have I decided to make my own story. After reading a lot of werewolves stories on the app I realized there was a serious problem with them. Now don’t get me wrong I love werewolves and some of the stories I read were good, others were questionable. My favorite would probably be Mated to a Werewolf just because it’s a fun read. And what is up with people naming their Alphas/ main love interest Adian? Idk who stole it from who at this point. Why Adian?
Anyway, I liked the stories and all but was always disappointed by the lack of werewolves in it. I know it would be alot of work to do that, trust me I KNOW but still, they always describe it when I want to SEE it. Even a wolf png would do.
Because of I like a challenge and I love animation I decided to make a story with real wolves in it!
Not because I want to show anybody up but because I want to see if I can. Now, this is already in progress and has been for a bit. I know exactly how I’m going to do it and it’s very possible with the right tools which I have. All I need is the time to begin writing my story, it’s all planned out from there. But as of right now I have too much to do to sit down and begin:(
I have some puppets ready to go but I have this nagging fear that they are too cartoony and I just can’t make up my mind on it. After all I don’t want to animate everything upload all the pngs and realize that I should have gone more realistic!
Now after my story is done and I got the process down pat I plan on sharing my wolf animations with all of you and even creating MORE animal animations when I make them. But first I want the honest truth of which would you prefer to see in an episode. Wolves that look like they are people or wolves that look like they are just wolves? I’ll let you look and decided
- I like the wolf that is kind of cartoonish!
- I like the wolf that is more realistic!
- I don’t like either and I think you should change your approach
- I like both of them and I think you should combine them!
Last but not least I need more information about wolf culture.
I have been reading any wolf related story I can get my hands on so I can learn every thing about wolves and how they function as a “culture” Really the lore about them.
So far I have leared about mates. the age at which they find them, marking and how and why it happens, including bad marking, the age they find their inner wolves, telekinetic communication in a pack, pack ranks, and maybe I am forgetting some stuff but that’s about it. If you have any information you have leared about werewolf “culture” that you think I should know that would help a bunch!
