    Just got to see a rough cut of Redemption Episode II (no sound, no music) and I can say that I'm officially blown away. If you thought Redemption Episode I was hot and sexy, you haven't seen anything yet. There's one scene in particular that blew me away in terms of quality and an effect he threw in there. Seriously.

    This man does not get the credit he deserves. His future is bright if he wants to go in to 3D animation of any type.

    So yeah. BotCon isn't that far away, and I think he's planning on bringing what he has to the show. If you're lucky, he'll show you, and then you can sit back like I am right now and wonder how the hell something this good comes from just ONE PERSON.

    That's all. And no, I'm not sharing what I have (NOT just because it's like 200MB) :)

    What is this? I don't think I've seen this before. But since you seem to think so highly of it, is there a place I could download the first episode? Should I ask Draven?

    Draven IS da man. I've only seen the previews for ep2, and it would be an understatement to say that it is incredible. I am anxiously awaiting Botcon.

    Will be interesting to see. I'm hoping for some particular changes to the designs in comparison to the first rendering (less fluid faces for one), though I doubt that, it's how he does the faces.

    But, hearing how he had that new pc that could render stuff far better and faster than the one he made Redemption 1 on... :p

    I've really got to save up for next year. Of course knowing my luck it'll be in Japan or some wacky place I'll never afford to go. :(

    Trust me. There's one scene in particular that I don't want to spoil that had me grabbing my father. He said, "Is this the new Transformers series?"

    That's how good it is! :)

    episode 1 looks like it was made from someone else after previewing episode 2. He's improved THAT much.

    Draven said I can't post anything regarding the actual episode II that I've seen, even though there's one little screen grab I'd love to take and then post to share.

    It's just a remarkable piece of fan work.

    Dude I know what you mean. From the clips he showed me, there a parts that look so incredible, it looks better than BW. I can't wait to see when Draven's done with it. It's going to be awesome.

    Mods are demi-gods and get to have goodies before us mortals.

    pray that he is a benign deity, less he smite you into vertexes.

    Draven is definitely an incredible artist. It's simply amazing what he can do and Ep. 2 is will blow you away.

    I'm not a God; I just have too much time on my hands ;) 
    Thanks for the support guys. You're the people I'm doing all this for. As for the Mods seeing it first, that isn't true:
    1. It's not even finished yet. I doubt it'll be done for Botcon, but there will be at least 7.5 minutes of it ready to be shown.
    2. There have been a few "Lounge only" exclusives, but most of these have been reposted in public. The 228Mb preview is not available to the public purely because it would go over my bandwidth limit really quickly, and I can't afford to pay for extra. The people who have seen it have all promised not to share the link.

    Any chance you'll get with FP to show it on a projector or large TV to folks, or will any BotCon screenings be something you set up on your own?
