Last 24 hours on Kickstarter setting up backerkit

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 19, 2015, 7:42 PM
||| FAQ ||| My site ||| My scraps ||| Commissions ||| My tumblr ||| Facebook

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

I decided to buckle down and check out backerkit on the last 24 hours of my campaign,  kck.st/1c8lRiq
 I decided to use it. 
1. It has good survey setup, survey reminders
2. Bulk stamp purchases, and print out all the orders of each backers when you print the stamps out
3. setup fee is one time (but i do feel its a tag expensive) so i can use it for all the campaigns in the future...

It will save me so much time compare to a regular excel sheet i have to organize or orders from separated shops.

Candy Candy Fan animation audition [closed]

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 13, 2015, 1:11 PM
||| FAQ ||| My site ||| My scraps ||| Commissions ||| My tumblr ||| Facebook

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

My contact: mayshing@gmail.com

Thank you for auditioning:

My client's official choice is:
1. Candy: Katy Johnson 
2. Terry: Jonathan David

Back up actors: (if the official actors can't do it)
1. Candy: Elysse B
2. Terry: James Cheek


This is an extremely small job... but if you are interested in this kind of show, 
it's a small/paid gig with high quality visuals for final product and such for your resume/reel.
The show is a fan animation of an ancient Japanese anime, Candy Candy: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candy_Candy

DUE time: Jan 31th [closed]

Screen shots from the fan animation: 





My client is going to likely want a voice range similar to the original english dub.
My goal is to get it VERY close to the original manga style. 
Main characters are Candy and Terry: 

Time setting: USA, 1920s
Show style: Slice of life, historical


**********

CHARACTERS: 


Candy: 
Voice range: middle female (to slightly high)

Voice accent: American 

Client request: Don't make her sound too much like a girl but a matured young lady

About the character: 
American. in her 20s. In the original series she's an orphaned energetic girl who has a strong personality, she is consistently smiling and won't hesitate to fight back or get into a fist fight with other boys. She climbs trees and like to play with animals, and she loves people. Later she turned into a nurse. 



In this short animation however, she is adult, a woman in her 20s, and slightly more modest and formal but still has her usual cheer. 





Candy english voice reference: 



Test lines: (read the underlined words in bold, the other info is from the fan novel by my client for your acting reference) 

At last, Candy’s voice breaks, and tears flowing from her eyes. She pulls her arm back and beats him on the chest. “Don’t you ever!...” so much emotions choking in her throat she can hardly speak, “Don’t you ever leave me like this again! Don’t you dare!” 

Beyond shock, Terry embraces her and holds tightly in his arms. “What are you doing here?” he asks in disbelief. “Don’t leave, Terry. Don’t leave!” Candy cries. “I didn’t send you that letter. I was going to come tell you...I was going to tell you…but you left!” 
(Acting direction: Make it so she keeps herself proper, not like a desperate housewife, but as a young lady who is somewhat holding back her emotion yet still bursting out with anger and sadness) 



Terry


Voice range: Deep male

Voice accent: British

About the Character:
British, age in his 20s. so he needs to have a British accent, he lives in America for a while but later returned to Britain. He's a rebel, noble family character who would smoke cigar outside of class and get into fights with kids. Sort of a loner with a mysterious family background. His mother is actually a famous British actress who was a mistress of a noble family. He's the type that is slow to admit his true feelings but at this point of the short, he has already admitted to her.



Personality wise, he's the type that would force a kiss on Candy, also get into a fight with her, he also has playfulness in him that makes him somewhat unpredictable in action. 




Terry JP voice reference:


(*sorry can't find english one. ^^b) 

TERRY test lines, please read the underline word in bold:
Beyond shock, Terry embraces her and holds tightly in his arms. “What are you doing here? he asks in disbelief. “Don’t leave, Terry. Don’t leave!” Candy cries. “I didn’t send you that letter. I was going to come tell you...I was going to tell you…but you left!” Realization dawning on him. Candy has come back to him. “Stay,” Candy says to him. He looks at her, heart ecstatic, a smile appearing on his face. “No.” He says.
“No?”

You’re coming with me,” he answers, taking her into his arms and planting a lasting kiss on her lips. 

Terry shakes his head. In his mind, he thinks of a fireplace, where he and Candy sat alone away from the rest of the world. 

My life is a graveyard without her. 
Acting direction: Make him sound more reflective and subtly emotional, try to get the British accent. Best wishes. 




*Recording requirement
please try to meet it the best you can, but if you are close enough and you are chosen by my client, I can talk to my sound director about it to give you additional direction on a clean recording: 
Proper testing procedure for Average Recording Level and Noise Floor:
-Record the room (silent recording) with the level on the meter not exceeding -60dB
-Continue recording at the same level as the room tone while staying within the -18dB to -6dB range 

*Ensure that levels do not exceed -6dB

Use of any sound processing (Compression, EQ, Noise Filters) is not permitted, only minor editing such as removing unwanted sounds and crossfading between takes
•DO NOT USE ANY NOISE GATES OR LIMITERS EVER
•NO Vocal Effects (Reverb, Delay)

Wave Format (.wav)
Mono File (The voice is from one source not two)
Sampling Rate: 44.1k or greater (please inform if greater)
Bit Rate: 16-Bit


Lastly, I attached some images/storyboard for your reference on what the job is. You don't need to read any lines on the storyboard.

Inkblazers shutting down and moving

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 19, 2014, 9:47 AM
||| FAQ ||| My site ||| My scraps ||| Commissions ||| My tumblr ||| Facebook

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

Inkblazers.com announced closing this morning. Waaaah! 

When I first saw this I had a mix feeling. One is... is this an April fools joke? Oh wait its not April...
Second is... my fear has come to pass.
It’s not my first time that I have to witness this kind of closing notice from a publisher. Each time it's always depressing.

Without inkblazers support, I would literally have to start consider closing off all my manga projects because its hard to make a living on them on my own.
I was hoping I wont need to see this for years to come.  


I will proceed to finish setting up a patreon account, finish my webtoons entry, and finish my relaunch for kickstarter for next year April. 

Whether edepth, 2Masters, shenshu, and even any of my webcomics will remain will solely rely on my readers from now on.


This does not equal to giving up as a creator, my characters will live, perhaps in other forms of projects,
but it is giving up on projects when it doesn't make enough for my living to do them playing producer.
 
Just have to try harder again outside of the comfort which Inkblazers have supported us with all these years. 

But still, I want to end on a thankful note, it's not easy to do what Inkblazers, and even what DA is doing... providing a platform for us artists to make money and I am really thankful for their hardwork.



:new: :bulletred: As an emergency migration, edepth and 2Masters moved to tapastic for now, please subscribe it will help us reach the 600 people per series goal to qualify for their payment program:

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.

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.

One thing ends another thing starts, that's life, right? X3
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. :)
