Yesterday our renderfarm has rendered last frame of Morevna Episode 4 and we are ready for release! Last weeks were completely crazy, and especially last days (no sleep for 30 hours when doing final animation fixes). And all this right before our flight to Morevna Tour.
Yes, that’s right – Morevna Tour!
I am writing this from Moscow. Me and our lead artist Anastasia Mayzhegisheva are in the tour for presenting new episode of Morevna in 3 cities of Russia – Moscow, Voronezh and Ulyanovsk.
Here is the schedule:
- 01.05.2019, 15:00-18:00 (Moscow local time) – An informal meeting of Morevna Project fans and presentation of Morevna Episode 4 in Moscow (known as “MorevnaCon 2019”).
