Release Date for New Fester Short

I've only got a few shots left to animate, and a bunch of audio stuff to do. Other than that, this muthaclucka is pretty much ready to go. Fester Fish will return on August 22, 2012 in "Fester Makes Friends." It'll be about seven minutes long. I wanted to make it shorter because, you know, people don't watch anything over two minutes on the internet, but I just couldn't decide what to cut. So it's all in there! It's an epic tale of friendship (or lack thereof), heartbreak, home invasion and more. It's a transcendental meditation on life and death. It's a tear-jerker that will have you busting out your extra-absorbent hankies! As a wiseau man once said, "experience this quirky new black comedy... It's a riot!"



Mark your calendars!
Warn your neighbours!
Drink your milk!
AUGUST 22!!!

I would've made a teaser video like I did with the other two shorts but I'm too busy animating. So instead I'll be posting non-spoiler stuff from it to whet your appetite, like an advent calendar but with production art and GIFs instead of chocolate. So let the Countdown to Festercy begin, with a walk cycle from the new short, available in two sizes, suitable for avatars and such!


 

I suck at making GIFs, so the colours got messed up. Oh well.
8 DAYS LEFT.

"And no, folks, this one does not end with a Dear Princess Celestia...."

What's a Dear Princess Celestia?

We want Fester t-shirts, Fester coffee mugs, Fester action figures, Fester hoodies. And Fester Fish Sticks!

Hi Izak! I hope things have been going well for you since you graduated. Thanks a lot for commenting.

Fester t-shirts are not far off, since I found out about certain print-on-demand websites. As for the rest of your merchandise list, that may take a bit more time...

Wooo! Can't wait!

Aaron, you can offer Fester mugs, postcards, magnets, puzzles, calendars, photos, canvas, t-shirts (not sure about hoodies) at deviantART: http://www.deviantart.com/

I love how Fester never tires. He's been walking for an hour now with no sign of flagging.

"What's a Dear Princess Celestia?"

It's a dildo that squirts milk. It's also the name of a really great band. Oh no wait, maybe I'm confusing that with something else....

I am more confused than ever.
