Thanks for the positive feedback - I'll definitely tackle some more.

Since it looks like you did this digitally, you really capture the ink & paint style and aesthetic. Which is no easy feat. Great job.
How long did it take you to complete a single frame? Like the one here?
Cheers, appreciate it. I wanted it to look high-def but also retain the warmth of the CRT fuzz.
So, in real-time man hours, 2-3 days work, but I did an hour or two here and there inbetween other projects - which ends up taking longer as you get out of rhythm. Plus I had it sat around for months. I could work on a much quicker turnaround.
Sometimes I really hate copyright law because this is something I would totally donate a lot of money too for a handful of episodes to be remade like this on Kickstarter. Sony isn’t doing anything with the cartoon remastering wise, so why not? But damn copyright law. Maybe you could argue for “fair use” somewhere in there. But I doubt it. Plus it would take years to complete if you go solo.
Great work tho. Would love to see some episode frames redone. Keep em coming!
Yeah it's a pain. If I was doing this full time and animating the intro at least, then I think it would be quicker to finish than you'd expect, because some frames are very simple, re-use static backgrounds and the individual frames would take less tweaking because the "post-processing" effect would be applied to all frames at the end.
For full episodes you'd need a team and crowdfunding isn't worth considering with the copyright issue. I figure drip-feeding a few frames into the community will avoid upsetting anyone as it's akin to "fan art".
But if someone at Sony wanted to cover my salary I'd be more than happy to take on the job hah!
