Does anyone even remember these characters? Gosh, I remember when I was in middle school waiting for this project to complete. Unfortunately, I haven't found out much about its recent status (if anyone knows please share!). The website hasn't been updated in forever and the DA fan page was deleted not long ago. Anyway, I just got done reading the book for the first time and thought I'd draw Janus and Star when they were younger and had just met. :) This is just a quick sketchy piece <3

Hey! Beautiful drawing! I love Janus and Star they are so sweet!

So reading though the comments here I thought I should say, yes we're still working on the movie. I myself am an inker. No one gets paid or anything even after all these years. I know that sounds harsh but we work on a volunteer basis, and there are no deadlines. No one is pushing you to do anything :) I myself have just come back from a bit of a hiatus and cranked out several assignments fairly quickly.

We really could use some background artists right now but we have a handful of animators, inkers and colorists all itching to get some work done :) We have a music composer, a compositor who's compiling things and doing effects work for us too. be assured guys that even though we may go for months without updates, there's always someone working hard. I promise :)

This is an outstanding work of art. You are really a marvelous artist and I am so going to tell Doris about this for sure. :D

The Wolf Project!

Yeah don't know what happened to that. Shame. I think way back they wanted animators to work for free. Which doesn't really work unless said animator doesn't need to pay bills or for food.

I know my friend :iconkoeyohte: was going to help them? or at least did a lot of art for them. I could have that wrong though.

Everyone who in involved with this project works for free, including myself :) And yes many of us have day jobs, or school so we can't always devote 100% of our time to the project. That's part of why this has taken so many years. Plus we're a small group.

Ahh cool! Glad it is still going :) Thanks for letting us know.

Heya!  Yeah I was a character designer/model sheet manager for those few characters I dealt with.

I just did a few minor chars like a fox and raccoon.

I don't think anyone is getting paid at all, still.  No one ever was when I was helping them.  Partly why I stopped - it's too much dedication and work for something that takes up my time doing what I need to in order to make $$

It's a nice project for anyone who has free time and wants experience coloring, animating, and seeing what the process involved is.  You get to see everything once you're on the team, too - you have access to all files everyone does and uploads, so you get to see various areas of work.

Very cool!
Yeah it is hard to do projects when real life needs money.

I hope they are still keeping it alive! would be sad if they abandoned it. After all the art, animations, and sales they made on it already. I know it takes time to have people animating on and off.... but it's been YEARS! Just wish they had some sort of progress update.... if it's gone or not I don't want to keep wondering.

It's still going ^^ Just veeeeeerryyyyy slowly.  Even when I was working with them several years ago (like 5 or 6 years) there were only a handful of us doing everything - only 2 people animating regularly, myself and like 2 others on char design (not much was needed at that point), and several coloring artists.  So it's taking quite a long time to get everything out ^^
