The Flashes by Keh-ven
Keh-ven:
Sup everyone. I'm here to throw out some quick details about my current situation at home. I'm living with my partner's parents for the summer until we can get an apartment together in August/September. Until then, I'll be working on commissions and earning some money for the rent. Very sorry for the incredibly slow pace!! 

As some of you may have heard from my tumblr updates, I am no longer living with my parents or receiving support from them for school and other benefits. Without the money to pay for tuition, I may lose my scholarships and not have a chance to finish college on time. Of course, I'm well prepared for that, but if there's a chance, there may be a way. My partner's parents started a GoFundMe for me. Please check it out, share it, and donate if you can. I'll be using this money and my commission money towards school and rent, and I'll probably kick up the rewards when I think of something better. Thank you all do much!!

Here's the link to the GoFundMe: www.gofundme.com/bs9b0g

Doraremon is still one of my major influence, it gave me the love of comics with educational value and adventure. The series has always put in real knowledge and that inspired me, and it’s something I try to do with mine. 

YuYu Hakusho introduced me to all the actions and fist fighting, and it’s also the series that later determined my current art style and my action sequence style as well.

Mount Giant by mayshing



WHY:
Making one's comment meaningful and making it count has many benefits, especially in the art world.

Single words praise really does hold little weight, and just not making any comment also don't earn anyone anything, so bringing it up another level is good for both the artist, and the appreciator.


1. It starts conversations, and make friends: When you comment on people's work around, not limited to the artists you admire but also artists you can buddy with on different levels, you will find yourself rich with many art friends to discuss your own work and joy with. You will also find this skill useful when you make it into the professional world where you would be making comments to make connections.


2. Gets comments for your own work: when you give people meaningful comments that rewards them, you can ask for feedback for your own work easier, because you have invested in their work first. If you cold-call it's harder to get the same favor back. Many times you don't need to even ask, they will be looking to your way.


3. Make the community much more enjoyable: we all enjoy an active community that encourages, and guide one another with kind words and understanding.




TIPS:
1. Talk about how the artwork "feels" to you: if you observe the artist is trying to communicate a mood, or a feel, talk about what it means to you personally when you see it. If they see their intention has communicated, they will be very happy. Even if it didn't, you will seem like an interesting person.


2. Talk about the area that took the most work technically to achieve or execute: the other person will be happy to know their time spent, and attention to detail is noticed and appreciated.


3. Talk about the one little area you appreciate personally If you don't see anything else from point 1-2, use 3.


4. Appreciate what the artist is trying to achieve, and discuss where they actually are and what else they can do to get where they want to go. This perspective is very suited for artists in study.

5.Thank them for their time and effort, and let them know how it helps you Especially for people sharing some useful information on tutorials. This one is pretty straight forward, simply because they really don't have to do it, so its a favor to the community that they are sharing.

6. Make up your own short story from the artwork, this option is very entertaining for both sides. If you are a creative writer, definitely do that! 


Lastly, the feedback doesn't need to be long to count, it doesn't need to be a paragraph, it doesn't need to take 1-2 hours, it doesn't need to be a well informed critique, it can be even just one sentence, all it needs to do is show that you care. When you care, others care about you too. It's just that simple. (But if you did the above 5 points your comment would be a paragraph already. lol)

Any additional thoughts to add to this welcomed.

We didn't make it this time but a lot of good things still came out of it which is encouraging. 


I am happy to announce that our Store is open! store.altabestudio.com/



We now provide goodies pre-ordering (because I need the time to prepare/restock somethings) for goods, including manga cameo, T-shirts and stuff we offer. 

And I am also doing fanart prints give away. :) All you need is pay for the product cost and shipping. 

We are planning for the next kickstarter to be for Edepth Angel's Visual novel game, and we will attach the anime as our highest stretch goal.

And it looks like we are relaunching. lol Though people are still pledging which I am very grateful about! 

So what now? 
We are going to open up shop for those who are still interested in the products for pre-ordering on May 5th before we declare the campaign over:



Note: the store is paypal based and takes credit card

I have included Cameo choice for my manga (and will add 2Masters since someone is interested) as products in a limited fashion as well.

And we are going to rework our campaign planning and strategy for a relaunch for the remaining months of the year. I can't give a time yet but this will require me to rework quite alot of things. It's going to be a busy busy year for E-depth. O_o

Advice for inspired students

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 21, 2014, 11:01 AM
  • Mood: Optimism
||| FAQ ||| My site ||| My scraps ||| Commissions ||| My tumblr ||| Facebook

================================================

what is it like to work on a webcomic? 
A: Webcomics is really just comics hosted online... so for webcomic advice I really just have one advice, just do it. Don't think too deeply about it other wise you will have trouble starting. Don't think you need perfect drawing, don't think you need perfect story, just go and work at it eventually you will get to where you want. Here's an inspiration: www.mangahere.com/manga/onepun…

Once you start and get stuck somewhere, then search for a follow-up advice or come to me again. :) (Smile) 

How did it help with animation if at all? 
A: I think it helps with discipline, and you become familiar with your own timing because of steady update, you also draw constantly so your speed is faster, ready to be trained into animator, it also helps with your ability to draw characters at different angle, expressions, and storyboard for animation and sequential storytelling skills. Most of these skills doesn't come by as strongly if you only do single piece illustrations. Illustrations will train you on details, accuracy, single panel composition and impact. 

What would you recommend an aspiring student to do to aspire a career in film/animation?
A: Become a really good self-learner and just constantly improve your own ability. Once you stop learning that's when you start to fall behind. 


What would you recommend anyone starting from the ground-up? 

A: Do a short comic, or a test comic, then find a host online, there are free hosts like www.inkblazers.com/ and www.smackjeeves.com/ 

Do a really good thumbnail or banner, on internet that speaks for everything... 
Rewrite your logline and comic description until you can present the main conflict of your story the best you can, and keep it as simple as you can. People tend to gravitate toward "conflict" of the story. I don't really know why.... If your story is not about conflict, then just sell "light hearted" combine with cute... to a specific type of crowd. (they will eat it up) Or make it educational in some sense.


What's the best approach for starting a webcomic or animation?
A: 
Starting a comic: Chapter 1 is everything, plan for about 30-60 pages for chapter 1. 
Present the main character and his/her quest in chapter 1.
Present the tip of the conflict in chapter 1.
Present a strong struggle in chapter 1 if you can.
End chapter 1 with a strong/evil hook for chapter 2 if you can. It's your demo for the rest of the comic, redo chapter 1 several times if you need to, try to get as much feedback on chapter 1 as possible. 

From my exp, most people's (including myself) first chapter 1 tend to drag too long on character presentation, or present the conflict too quickly at the end and end really hastily. So try to avoid those problems. 

Tip 2: 
Don't try too hard to impress, making comics should become part of your own expression, either for your dream, your escape, your political view, or anything that matters to you. If a comic become your voice, it will become second nature to you. 

Tip3: Don't put too much text in.... Comic wise.... the most comfortable read is about 60-80% graphic, 20-40% text on the page. 

----------
Animation: Practice with tutorials first, do short looping seq first, then go for longer sequences and incorporate more things like voice actors and such. 
The rest is too complicated, it can't be finished in 1 note... I will keep putting out tutorials and you can ask me more questions after you watch them.

Jumping ahead a little bit into using photoshop to animate. Since I noticed....
some people still need to know some small tricks here and there to make their process faster animating in photoshop.
What this tutorial covers:
1. Animation tool - briefly
2. using layer function to animate
3. 3 passes of rough animation

This is what I do with mine currently. :)

April Fool Confession by mayshing

See the latest update on KS site: www.kickstarter.com/projects/m…




James: Welcome back friends to the Conversation! Today I am joined by the creator of E-Depth Angel to talk about the Anime Kickstarter that was recently launched. Thank you for joining us today.

 A: Thank you so much for inviting me. :) It’s an honor to answer your questions.

James:  Why don’t we start off by talking a bit about E-Depth Angel? What made you want to make a webcomic?  

A:"In the past, I have always read about comics, western and eastern alike focusing on the power of force and wealth when it comes to a hero or heroine like character. While I loved the idea of relating to characters that stir my fantasy with their super powers or weapons, I can’t help but to feel empty walking away from this fantasy world back into my world, powerless. I want my audience to be able to walk away from my story with some kind of encouragement that can relate to their real life, to empower them with their decisions, while still create a world with new things they can discover.

Kickstarter update#5-VA commentary

Kickstarter Update#5  

Voice Actor Commentary: Brian Tubbs

 Brian, Randy and Kolei's voice actor and our acting director gives his commentary about the role, and the project.You can get a sense on how different his voice and Randy's voice are. I have always been amazed on how VAs can train themselves to do that. 

Brian is also in airforce, he actually was deployed during the production but made it home safely~ Thank God.  (Can't tell you how relieved I was) 

*W00t! DA made posting YT easier now! Good news for me, no more scripts, just copy/paste!

It's our big day so I am spamming everywhere! *for now!* 

Podcast-interview by mayshing

DAY 6 on Kickstarter: www.kickstarter.com/projects/m…

Interviewer: Aaron Fristik

Big thanks to Aaron who prepared the skype interview with a lot of heart and sensitivity. :) 

Just going to say, this interview has some of my most honest thoughts, the ups and downs of the productions, more about difficulties than anything. Every production is a challenge in small and big ways. 

Topic Covered: 

  • Intro (0-1 min)
  • Why Edepth is turning into anime (2-4 min)
  • Why we are running Kickstarter (4-6 min)
  • The voice actors and how they are chosen (7-8 min)
  • Difficulties in choosing the right actors (8-9 min)
  • About Angel and Angel's Voice (9-11 min)
  • What fans can take from Edepth (11-15 min)
  • About Lien and Lien's Voice (16-18 min)
  • Challenges on the voice acting (19-20 min)
  • What's going into the show (20-21 min)
  • What's different between anime and manga (23-26 min)
  • Cost of the anime itself (26 min-27 min)
  • Cost of an anime series (27-29 min)
  • Who will do the Animation (29:30-32 min) 
  • Challenges on the animation process (32-34 min)
  • About Rewards (35-38 min)
  • Final thought (38-40 min) 

PS: At 13 mins in, I am not against "anime violence." *in case anyone took it wrong...* a@ Pardon my grammar >////< 

Aaron is a very passionate interviewer, I will def recommend him to any of you who wants to run a kickstarter on comic or animation! :D


Please fav/reblog/borrow the images all you like to help spread the word and link people to the campaign! You have my permission!

PLUG: Our studio long time member :iconguiled-dragon: decided to help out by giving DA points to those who help spread the word too: (she didn't have to, but thank you elysse!)
  Anime Kickstarter Launch+dA Point raffleThat's right! The Kickstarter Project I am a part of is now a go!
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mayshing/e-depth-angel-anime
--EDIT--
Reached our first 3k!! Still have a long way to go! Please signal boost/plug in if you can! :points:
Please contribute if you're a fan of the series or simply want to help us out. I am a VA on the project as well as a few other roles. We would very much love to get this made and actually be paid for our hard work. A full animation would be a dream come true!
If you want to learn more about the series check out the series' home page: http://mayshing.com/edepthanime/
There you can read more about the anime, read the actual webcomic (which has been around for 10 years) as well see the Kickstarter.
Animation example:

Black Hat Film needs your help!!!

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 2, 2014, 3:43 PM
||| FAQ ||| My site ||| My scraps ||| Commissions ||| My tumblr ||| Facebook

================================================

The Black Hat Girl by mayshing

A promo piece I did for the upcoming feature film in the making “Black Hat” *My mock up shot on how the main girl Dandi will look in the anime*

Spazattackplz  They are starting a fundraising at Seed&Spark website which will support the campaign if we meet 80% of our goal: www.seedandspark.com/studio/bl…


Yasuko Takasu (Fangirling) [V1]   If we are successful we will get to make a movie unlike any other movies seen in the states, where we can get to feature the anime culture, cosplay, cons, and fly in Director Shinichiro Watanabe who made Cowboy Bepop and Death note and other cool shows to be on cameo. As well as 300 cosplayers that signed up! Thoughts: WHEN DOES AN ANIME DIRECTOR EVER GET A CAMEO IN A MOVIE?! It’s too rare! We need to make that happen!
It’s an exciting project I really want to see it taken flight, plus the crew is super nice. Please help spread the word!

Logline: Desperate to get to an anime convention halfway across the country to meet her favorite anime director Shinichiro Watanabe, a quirky teen artist “borrows” her sister’s car, kidnaps her wily, black sheep grandfather and together they embark on the road trip of a lifetime.

 

Slamheadplz We REALLY REALLY NEED Your Support for the first few days of the campaign, the Director Robbie is visiting Sundance film festival in a few days and we really want to use this campaign to sell it to get more funding coming in to meet the actual goal of the production! So any help is greatly appreciated!
