Greetings, and a layout of some of my interests and things I'm doing

Post by D3ath Angel on Thu Feb 09, 2012 8:35 am

I was a big fan of Pokemon Adventures (as I was first introduced to it) when it first got published in English a bunch of years ago, and went totally sad face when I lost my volume 2 and found that it had been discontinued since. I had to scour the net to discover that it had been running still in Singapore. Anyway, I was able to catch a shortlived french publication that almost finished Yellow's saga.

So as for my interests; I've read aloud when I was alone ever since I was a kid. I was really into Dragon Ball, and because of my habit, I could entertain my friends at school with my spot-on impressions of the voices. I was also into drawing. Presently, I just finished an awesome 3-year Illustration & Design program last year (in Canada, so it didn't cost me an arm, leg, and my financial future). Oddly enough I'm in Sciences right now. Not at all because I'm giving up art, but the reasons for that move are complicated so I won't get into it. I'm actually casually working on a couple projects on my free time, one of which is a fanimation of the Evangelion manga by Sadamoto, purposefully altered into my own style- of which I've done 2 1/2 pages of storyboards ^-^ I haven't done much work on it, but you can see 2 pages + a title card here:

http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/379969_10150456525856942_587521941_10145539_480052454_n.jpg
http://a4.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/389903_10150513276461942_587521941_10327562_223036573_n.jpg
http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/382077_10150465242116942_587521941_10173656_1309625411_n.jpg

(They're not refined drawings of course, but I got carried away with detail considering its just a storyboard- I'm still learning how to pace myself efficiently... If you guys are wondering, I have no problems imitating styles, as long as I have enough reference to infer how that style is communicated on difference fronts.)

I'm also doing some fan concept work for the Halo Forerunner saga written by Greg Bear. I'm going to be messing around with dramatic narration playing in front of some of that artwork on a chapter-basis- you can listen to a Prologue voice test (unfortunately without the accompanying artwork yet - I'll put it up as soon as I can finish a watercolour portrait I'm working on). The tinny voice effect is because it's coming from A.Is and audio logs.

So all this is around my Science studies... yeah, more to take on than I envisioned, but it's not nearly as tough as when I was in Illustration- while Science students were going out on Friday nights, we were drowning in projects between 5 hours of sleep and no free time, ever.

So since I have enough art projects on my hands, I thought I'd lend my voice instead. With my other ambitions, I haven't ever really gone anywhere with voice acting even though it was something I had thought about back in my teens. I used to be versatile as hell in the day, as I had more time to read comic books and such... but I still have range. I can see that the production has been moving slowly out of the holiday season, so I don't think I should worry about you guys being on my back for 100+lines 5 episodes ahead. I don't want to predict when I'll put a voice audition out, because those are usually wrong with the work I have, but I do intend to audition for Professor Oak, Poliwhirl, and all the other Pokemon on the list (I mean, I might as well as it doesn't look like anyone else is), as well as demo my voices for Koga and Giovanni. I'll probably mess around with other, non-Pokemon impressions as well.

So, there it is; what I'm about as far as you guys could be concerned here.

Summarised :p

Hi there and welcome! Have fun auditioning and all. Oh, and if you put the URLs for the links in your post I can linkify them for you.

K, thanks!

Ah; same problem as before. I can't enter an URL.

That must be a new thing...I remember I posted a link on my first post a couple of minutes after I registered in this forum. Oh well.

Anyway, welcome. Although I would've preferred more help in the art area, good luck on your VA auditions.

Wow! No thing like a novella to get to know someone! Anyway, welcome to the forums! My name is dirksies and I am the VA head. Make sure to read the rules and the FAQs blahblahblah...

Don't feel like you can't be audition for two different areas, I know that both teams are looking for talented people and, if you've got the skillz, go for it. I think the link thing was more as a rule to prevent against people/spambots trying to come and solely promote their own projects or sketchy websites, rather than contributing to the team. I think this is a completely different circumstance, so if you want to post your links, feel free!

I can't wait to hear your auditions and if you have any questions, just ask!

Thanks for the welcome. The link thing is coded into the forum; so I physically can't post a link until a full week. I registered a few days ago, so I'll just update this post in a few more.

Huh...I've never noticed that before. Well, I can't wait to see them, anyway!

So you're making an anime based on the comic that was based on the anime? Interesting.

Yes; the anime was originally supposed to be 2 seasons long before Gainax went derp with their budget, so some things (like a couple sweet character arcs and more up-front information about the plot) never had time to make it in. The manga, being cheaper to produce than the anime has more of such content, so I chose some parts of it to do. But it's such a long process, that I think it's going to stay a hobby/pet project for a long time with my studies and portfolio to work on.

Wow, I definitely just had the chance to listen to this. You have a really great range! Did you use a lot of voice manipulators? I would love to hear an audition for the VA team!

I only used a hint of pitch change in the first half- but in no way was I speaking in my regular pitch to begin with- for example, the very deep-voiced part was mostly just me talking in my deep voice, pushed over the edge just enough for it to sound unnatural. All-around I added a filter to make the voice sound mechanical, but that doesn't really add onto the voice impression I was doing. (It's comparable to putting a static-y filter to make it sound like I'm talking through a speaker-phone.)

I've started making my audition. I haven't continued it lately because of tests, but I'll get back on it sometime. I've done an Oak and Poli so far that I'm more or less satisfied with (in that I could have done more takes and a better job, but for now it's enough to give you an idea of my impressions.)

Wow! That's absolutely fantastic! Like I said before, you have a fantastic range!

Good luck on your tests and I eagerly await your auditions!
