Love the style, it's looking a bit like Aardman work. Really really nice. I'm happy to see that there are others taking the toon approach. I like the realistic ones, but my heart is pulling for one of the cartoony ones:)

there's something else too! for instance sometimes I can't see images! and so on!
Btw I dunno really what's this! is it just me?! or it's CGS maintanance program or anything out of my control?! have any of you experiencing something similar?! :hmm:
BTW thought this is solved again just for now and I can going to tose pages once more! TNX god!

Hi!

I Thought we really need a time-table that all member jobs identified on that!
So here it is!
Btw as you see I kept a week secret on our team to use on force cases! so my team mates thought the deadline is 1June! and they are lazy enough to don't check here!!! :D
And as you see again! a time extension will help us alot really!!!
and also we have some jobs for you on the list! as you see!

Tnx for supports, mim

I had to clarify the story for my team but I hadnít time! So I did a really fast and childish story-board that is enough though for our purpose! Btw I believe it have major things about the story too!
And since I hadnít told my story here yet and since Iím too lazy to explain it in EN! So though posting storyboards here too is a brilliant Idea! BTW if you canít understood whatís up there then itís ur problem and didnít relevant to me all the ways!
Btw let me say just that some funny funny thing will happened at the end (I called finalization!) that make whole of our project just more like a joke!! And I didnít illustrate (!) em just here! So donít mind abyway!!!
Ah! And sorry about multiposts coz I have to do this to keep texts readability! ;)
oops! let me say I didn't repeat these textes in each of these posts!! so just back here and read this before any further look on next ones!!! (ok! ok! I'll post it on last one too! is't good?! ok!)
