Hey, guys. As you can see, this is an announcement about Horizons - a fairly big one, actually.
The original story of Horizons, with Accalia, is on hold, now.
I wanna continue it, but... first of all, avians are the hardest race to draw. Like, the beaks, the wings, the faces overall, are just so complicated. ..and having one as a main character, meaning I will have to animate an avian most of the time, is just plain difficult for me.. Horizons episode 1 took me long enough, but I didn't like my progress on episode 2, so I chose to start all over again. ..and trust me, episode 2, so far, looks like it will take A FULL YEAR.
Second, relating to my first reason, having an episode take nearly a full year, well... WAY too much stress on me. I cried for like, two hours because I was so stressed and didn't know what to do about it. I can't have this.
Third, the story... I have better ideas, honestly.
...I figured I would start something new. STILL HORIZONS!!! Just.. with a different story, and different characters (I WILL keep most of the characters, and they will have a role!). Something that's easier on me, so I don't have to stress out over it.
Like I said, I have much better ideas, and I'm very tempted to use them. I'd like this one to focus more on the history of Hazoranei, and give it meaning. I want it to start off as a darker series, and I'll do so.
No, I am not thinking about cancelling the original story. It will be on hold. I will announce this on YouTube as well, and put the casting call on hold.
I want a new start, now. And I will most likely do it, because the original story.. well, I'm just a little uncomfortable with it, honestly. It will definitely still contain all the kingdoms, races, species, and so on; I'm just changing the story and characters (some of them; like, the protagonist).
I hope you guys are alright with it. I figured this was for the best; or else, I'd be stressing out like crazy. and when I get stressed, it can get to a whole new level.
I'm actually kind of happy to start with something new... It relieves me, a lot, to be honest.
Now, I've been thinking...
who should be the protagonist?
