This post is a budget update, which is how I track spending throughout the competition. Check out my budget to see what I've spent money on.
I had a couple of animators create test animations off of one of my character concepts just to see if their style fit what I have in mind for the game. Both animators were able to mock up a 3D animation in about 3 hours. Neither of the trial animators was the right fit for me this time around, but I’ll hold onto their contact information for the future.
