Animation SituationI've been rushing at breakneck speeds to finish my animation in time for the official submission deadline tomorrow ... or, today, by now actually. However, there are still little fixes I want to make to Santiago's introduction scenes, as well as some revisions to the "finished" sequences with Louis and James, so I'm holding back on uploading the clips to Youtube.Animation Situation8 months ago in Personal More Like This

For those asking, I'm animating directly into the computer using a Wacom tablet. The animation program I'm using is TVPaint Animation 10 Pro. Super expensive so I use the school computers, but it's like the illegitimate love-child between Photoshop and Adobe After Effects without Flash's niggling tendencies to crash every ten minutes. That program is sex. <3

Anyone in Düsseldorf, Germany, who is going to the DoKoMi con should keep their eyes peeled for :iconmonsieurlefrereduroi: and her girlfriend, who will be dressed as Louis and James respectively this Sunday (19th). She's dressed as Louis before, and cuts an absolutely fabulous~ figure:
I thought people only cosplayed famous characters?
And I am super excited to see photos this time around, especially since she's outdoing herself yet again and making new, more exact costumes ...
Sneak-peaks, what a tease!
I am so flattered that people like my characters enough to want to cosplay them, especially when they do such a bang-up job of it. I will not be there, because I live all the way on the other side of the world in Singapore, but anyone over there do say hi! They're friendly people!

Last Sunday I had a Skype meeting with Brendan Julian and Richard Johnston - the voices of Louis and James respectively from my upcoming animation - to discuss the finer points of Honour Amongst Thieves. As promised, I managed to record it and so without further ado, I present to you:
Honour Amongst Thieves
I was delighted to see the two of them got along so well, because their character interaction promises to be great this way. Unfortunately, Santiago's VA was unable to make it due to timezones, but perhaps sometime in future we'll be able to repeat this again plus one Spaniard!

It's about that time for a new journal entry, as a lot has happened since last I was seen lurking about this site. I have new Honour Amongst Thieves Questions and Answers podcasts, Amnesia videos, and photos, as well as news on my current job(s), and the results of :iconredeaddie:'s fantastic Louis cosplay. So how about I just start from the beginning?
Brendan Julian was over in Singapore for three weeks towards the end of my summer break, which was responsible for most of my absence. For those who don't yet know, he is the voice for Louis Despatis in my (as of yet) unfinished animation. Much fun was had. As well as dragging him all over the island and introducing him to all manner of wild and weird Asian cuisine, we also spent a lot of time at Universal Studios, Singapore, with my LASALLE besties for Livia's birthday. Brendan got to hug Reese's Pieces
4 Kinds of StorytellingHere's an old journal from 2010 about storytelling. Because I have a lot more readers these days, I think I'm going to start reposting some of my earlier posts for my newer audience. So for you old timers, feel free to skip.4 Kinds of Storytelling6 months ago in Personal More Like This
In full disclosure, I slightly edited this journal to make it a little more balanced (while also fixing a ton of typos).
I feel like the word "storytelling" gets thrown around a lot in our industry. Yet when I look out there at some comics, I don't always see a lot of evidence for it.
It feels like people in comics pros--myself included--often use the word only because we feel like we're supposed to. Over the years enough professionals have been accused of being poor storytellers to the degree that everyone is now afraid of being a pinup artist as opposed to a bona fide storyteller. But it's not enough just to claim you're a storyteller.

Commissions - CLOSED!!! I KINDLY ASK YOU TO READ THE FOLLOWING POINTS BEFORE REQUESTING A COMMISSION.Commissions - CLOSED!!!1 day ago in Personal More Like This
The posture of the character generally do it because very often I get requests too complicated for users. if I may request a posture too difficult for me on the committee will be rejected unless they let me free choice if you want to design.
NOT drawing illustrated pages! Much less scenery or outlook too difficult. needless to insist that the answer is no.
I have had many requests involving animals and pony, these very difficult for me so I would like to kindly not to propose.
This is very important : do not rush me when you request a commission! the last time I did spend a few episodes that occurred, this time the committee member will be immediately deleted from the list.

"Too Much Plot/Dialogue"
A friend and I were shooting ideas and thoughts during class and he said that there are some issues with the nuzlocke. Apart from some drawing issues (which I recognize), he thought that there was too much plot and the pacing was too slow. At first I was like...
"Bitch please I'm just trying to get plot down"
But then he pointed out and I realised this.
Time between Start to First Badge - April 13th to April 17th (Wicked fast)
Time between First Badge to Second Badge - April 17th to May 5th (Slower, but still fast)
Time between Second Badge to Third Badge - May 5th to November 12th (F**K ME THAT TOOK A WHILE)
I guess part of the reason it taking longer is that I'm putting more effort into the drawings, but the major factor was the constant plot I was chucking at your faces. So I'm gonna take a bit of time off to re
*Nuzlocke Break and Possible New Series*Alright so first things first, I'm gonna take a break from doing my nuzlocke after the next page. It's a combination of practicing my drawing again and me just flat out losing all enthusiasm for it right now. That's not to say that I'm gonna quit it, neither does that mean I'm not posting any art for a while. In fact that leads to my next bit of news...*Nuzlocke Break and Possible New Series*1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Okay so basically I want to do my own Original Comic for a while now. I want to be able to not only create my own characters like in my nuzlocke, but my own universe so that I am not restricted by the rules laid upon writing for a pre-existing setting.
My idea is set in a fantasy "Swords and Sorcery" setting in the sort of vein as 'Slayers' and 'The Elder Scrolls'. The main story is going to start out from the perspective of a young swordsman who leaves his village in order to seek his fame and fortune and to also join a guild. The (hopeful) difference being that this time it doesn't go like most iterations of this kind of story goes. H

Stream IdeasOkay after a quick test run with my friend assisting me, I have discovered that I do indeed have the capacity to run a decent livestream (Well in terms of video quality). So that is now an option to do if I ever feel like mixing things up. Now here's how things can go...Stream Ideas1 year ago in Personal More Like This
-Mic ON = Few and Far between streams, Having to listen to a very annoying voice, better communication.
-Mic OFF = Livestreams more often, listening to whatever music I slap on, Communicating through the chat box.
I'll be honest I'd rather do it with the Mic OFF because I get SO nervous talking to people or recording in general. Buuuut if I grow some bawls and maybe get an IRL friend hiding in the chat so he could act as a distraction for me that might work. And also the reason Mic ON streams will be few and far between will be because I will have to do them while I have the house to myself. This is because I don't want my parents to shout for me down stairs or for my mum to go "Hello sweetie how are you?" (I'd lose so
Nuzlocke AMV idea - but I need your help!So, I had the idea to do an animated music video (AMV) that pays tribute to the Nuzlocke Challenge in general.

Of course, this would only be with nuzlocke characters from comics.Nuzlocke AMV idea - but I need your help!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The song is A Pittance of Time, by Terry Kelly. Here's a link to the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kX_3y3u5Uo&listLBF06E565812FEEEC&index=28&featurelpp_video. It's a beautiful song regarding war veterans, so it translates really well into the nuzlocke challenge.
Now, this idea may happen, it may not. But it's likelihood of happening is a lot higher if I get some help!
If you like animating, you can contact me via note to say so, and maybe help with animating. But even if you're not an animator, you can still help, by digging up characters.
I need people to look through nuzlocke comics and make notes about the characters. I need characters that would fit the song - specifically Pokemon who w

Summer is now winding down, and the business of it had previously forced me to go on a bit of a hiatus from everything in this group. However, I want to get back into a schedule with the events and features that I promised to give here, so starting next week, you shall see the return of the Featured Fan Run, Fan Fiction mini contests, and the Character of the Month journals! I'm also taking suggestions for OTHER things you'd like to see in the group! Currently, there's the Movie Stars contest going on, and I have several other contests planned for later, but I'm always open to suggestions in that department. Other than that, I'd like to hear from you all! This is YOUR group as the fans of both CSSN and TTDG! I'd like to hand out some features beyond other nuzlockes as well, so I was thinking of doing a Fan Art feature every month for those who participate in the Fan Art Feature exchange (you make fan art for my runs, I feature your OCs in my nuzlocke

I'm currently working on the next chapter of TTDG. The initial sketches are all done, so with any luck, the chapter will be done by tomorrow at the latest. Also, set 2 of the fan dub series is completed, and I'll be posting the link to that shortly. The group we have working on that is a riot! It's very fun XD All sorts of craziness is going down on Skype with them. Ha ha.
In other personal news, school starts really soon for me. Next week, actually. But my main focus right now is finding a job, for real this time. I've been looking, and I want to be working again by the end of the month. So I'll need to be diligent in that. Which means I won't be on as often for a while, until I establish a new schedule for myself. We'll see. Aside from that, life's a bit boring. I finished Torchwood, and I enjoyed the series. I'm just in the final dregs of summer, patiently waiting for it all to be over. Going to do something productive today. Hopeful

This means that yes, my comic update rate is going to grind to a monthly thing. I do have a few extra comics that I might scatter in between the main issues just to keep things kinda rolling though.
FYI, this also means any complaint/questions about my update rate

I am godamn serious about this.
Also, I might be around in the Myths of Unova tumblr to answer asks (in text form). My gijinka ask tumblr will also be slow, but you can still enjoy the old ask responses I guess.

Good News and Bad NewsSo I got my test copy of Crystal's Soul Silver Nuzlocke in the mail today~Good News and Bad News5 months ago in Personal More Like This
...Good news and bad news. Bad news first.
For whatever reason, even though I did covert all the files to black and white, it made the darker parts of the comic pretty much black so it doesn't really look... well. I think it's because I made the pages black and white then told them to PRINT black and white instead of as "color"... or something. It's not all the pages, thankfully, because I really don't use a lot of dark, and all the text is still legible, but...yeah. Some stuff is hard to see. Basic point.
The GOOD news is that the pages turned out fine otherwise. There was no size confusion, and it looks really lovely otherwise. I'm going to have it reprinted, of course, to fix the mistakes, so when I do, I'll post another link for you all.
Secondly, I've noted that quite a few people have expressed they would rather buy a COLOR copy of the nuzlocke instead of in black and white... which is

I ask my manager and he says he had to do budget cuts this week and shorten the hours for this week for people, and I'm one of them. NO WORK TUES. x.x So lil less cash for this work week but in all honesty, I needed a moment for myself so this is kinda a blessing in disguise.
