Resources for the PokeSpe Anime Team!

Post by Zephyr on Wed Dec 30, 2009 1:07 am

Hey, there! First off let me say, that I totally believe in y'all to make this project happen. You guys are bringing the best of yourselves and y'alls talents to the table, on your own free time.
So, I thought I could help a bit besides making music. I've been working in different mediums (oil painting, digital art, graphic design, VFX, cinematography, writing, music, and more), and being in the audio/visual world I know sometimes it's hard to find inspiration or guidance. I also believe that we can always better ourselves and we should strive to do so. For example, I try to make each song I produce incorporate something new I've learned. So I've compiled a list of resources, inspirational and educational, to help everyone out! Very Happy

Btw I've only seen Joy's art and one animation by dabeatmaster123, but I just wanted to say that y'alls pieces look GREAT! Keep it up! Very Happy

Illustration/Animating:

*Even though Pokemon Special is a manga, and therefore filled with "cartoon" characters, you can bet that Mato and Satoshi Yamamoto know human anatomy and some scenery compositional rules. The characters might not be proportional to our anatomy, but they are proportional in regard to their own body and the people that live their. That's one of the reasons that they're able to keep a consistent style with the characters.

This one ^ has good tips since I assume everyone wants this anime as close as possible to the manga in terms of style. My tip, just draw from reference from the manga...A LOT

That does seem very helpful, I'm sure it'll push us for the best!

I saw a fan made video based on a popular manga chapter, and I felt it was topnotch! judging by the fact this video was all one person, is pretty amazing.

I've seen some of those proportion references on DA before, as well as draw with me, and the fan-reanimation.

But that 'fumiko's confession'...was that done by ONE PERSON?

DEAR GOD. 0_0 We have some work to do...I'm still stumped on how to make the lines work right. Please, lend me your wisdom. ;_;

@ Mrtweetums

Yeah, I saw that too! VERY cool! That dude is so talented

@ Joy

I'm under the impression that it was just one person, but I could be wrong. It might be a small team like what's going on here. And what exactly do ya mean by getting the lines to work right?

If you need an animator for any project, I work to your standards and am cheaper then the others. Send me a PM to talk about your project!

He charges money for his works? I don't know what the head admin will say. But I do wonder, how come he says he hates animating and fan animations while accepting requests? No offense but is it all for the money?

He can't charge money for working on projects that is already copyrighted and are nothing more than a fan project. Also, I think he is being sarcastic when he said that he hates animating and fan animation when he himself is a fan animator.

Hell, he will be sued if he is making money from his naruto fan animations. I think you guys can approach him and see what he will say. Who knows, he would agree to help you guys without any money. (Which he can't) .

I dunno, He seems shady...and charging money for animation?


I don't think we should have to pay anything...I think it'll be better for us just working on it, then paying someone else to do it for us...

Well we need all the help we can get. Plus it is too early to judge him. Why not try to at least talk to him and see what he thinks? Plus if he likes to work with us then why not?

Well I made a you tube account solely to try recruiting people. So why don't I try talking to him? If everyone agrees that is.

You should talk to Dabeatmaster, since he is lead animator. I suggest you send him a PM.

You could also talk to my boss (Shen) about it, but I suspect he'll just pass it on to Dee for you.

Oh sorry I already sent that person a note asking a few things, though when I checked his page he does mostly naruto. So I doubt that he might be interested. But oh well. Still waiting for his reply.

On a side note, I saw another suggestion here saying why don't we try asking people on pivx about illustrators and stuff. I can't speak japanese so maybe if its a good idea we could try that. I also heard joyfulldreamers can speak japanese so I tried sending her a PM.

If they're illustrators, the final word would be hers anyways, so there is no harm there.

I know we are need all the help we can get, but you should also remember to check up with the team leaders. If they have to deal with lots of auditions, it could take time away from their work.

If I was in their situation, I'd much prefer a PM asking what my team was missing, rather than 18 auditions for jobs that are already taken.

Ha ha it was that many Very Happy but don't worry I only asked a handful. Most of them either came from manga fox (from a new thread by Dabeatmaster himself) or was asked by joyfuldreamers and other people. I only asked this person because I heard we need illustrators/animators real bad (because I recently heard that joyfuldreamers has had a handful). Don't worry.
