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
Honour Amongst Thieves ... Podcast?Let it never be said that Sak doesn't deliver!Honour Amongst Thieves ... Podcast?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
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!

I've just uploaded a new showreel showcasing some of the better Honour Amongst Thieves work and progression to my Youtube account, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYcI_6mu9FM&feature=youtu.be I've been sick all week so progress on the actual animation has been slow, but you can get a sneak-peek of Louis's scene there.
The Backstory of Kozmotis Pitchiner (Pitch)Deep inside the clock, Ombric was somersaulting through time at a furious pace. The world around him flickered from day to night faster than the blink of an eye. He saw seasons pass in seconds. Centuries flew by as he drifted up and away from the Lamadary.He looked skyward as the sun and stars spiraled past him at rocket speed. Day. Night. Day. Night. Faster than could be said and in reverse. The Moon was there too, and in a flash he saw the explosion of Pitch's galleon and the last great battle of the Golden Age. But it all happened too fast. The relics fell from the Moon too quickly for him to track them.The Backstory of Kozmotis Pitchiner (Pitch)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ombric wasn't worried. He would slow down his trajectory on the return trip and take note of their whereabouts. And if his plan worked, he wouldn't need to.
He began to drift away from Earth, going deeper and deeper into the vast dazzlements of space. He was traveling so swiftly through time that comets, planets, and galaxies pivoted and sparkled around him like fireworks, but their

Now that my animation course has resumed I may as well update you all on the progress of my search for Voice Actors for the rolls of Louis, James, and Santiago for my upcoming film 'Honour Amongst Thieves':
Auditions are now closed, and three "finalists" have been selected as the voices for the characters. Congratulations to:
as Louis Despatis
as James Hunter
as Santiago de la Cruz
All three sent in terrific voice clips with very good quality, and I hadn't expected to find such suitable voices for all three characters, especially on such short notice for such a small production! Thank you all for spreading the word

It's sound-effect-less, music-less, and not cleaned up at all, but I will be uploading each scene as I complete them so that the voice actors can see how their work is coming together. Perhaps it's also interesting for people interested in some of the processes of animation, as well.
My ApologiesHello all,My Apologies10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Let me begin by first apologizing to those of you who have left me notes, comments, or questions over the past few weeks. I have been absent for DA for an extended period of time due to real life priorities, and the stress doesn't look as though it is about to relent. While I will try to get back on top of my deviations and replies here, it will be slow-going and I can't promise to be around regularly.
As well as rushing to meet deadlines for my animation, I have also been organizing and setting up the LASALLE Show with my classmates, and as class representative for 2D animation I have been required to make a daily appearance at my college. The LASALLE Show doubles as a showcase to display the best works amongst the different faculties of the college, as well as being a graduation show for those of us in the 3rd year, which I am. Honour Amongst Thieves has received a special display right at the entrance to the animation gallery, and I was occupied for the bett
Working @ UbisoftNot even kidding, though my contract is only for two months so far. I was offered a unique opportunity to work alongside experts in the industry, and was recruited for concept art, illustration, and storyboarding, bouncing around to see where I might fit with my toony style. It's only been day one so far, but I'm working right alongside professionals and get to learn from them first-hand. Pretty sure I'm still reeling. Obviously I can't tell you what we're working on due to confidentiality agreements, but it's pretty cool to see all the behind-the-scenes action my own self.Working @ Ubisoft1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, this does mean a significant stall in my (slow) progress on HAT, my animation-to-be. While working at LASALLE I literally spent every minute animating if I wasn't busy assisting teachers; now the only time I'll have to work on it will be when I get home, and on the weekends.

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
Info, Rules, and How to JoinAbout the OC ConsortiumInfo, Rules, and How to Join1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The Consortium is a group made for original characters, but more than that, it's a place for world-builders and storytellers to share their OCs and their stories with one another. The creation of this group was inspired by the complaints many deviants expressed about how little attention their characters receive, characters they put much thought, time, and effort into creating and have developed entire stories and worlds for.
Rather than being another group that collects so-called "OCs" for the sake of pageviews and popularity, this group is selective by only letting in artists who've proven themselves to be world-builders and storytellers, and also by never requesting work to be featured in the group gallery (If we really like an artist's work we send a join request instead). By doing this we create an environment where artists can share their ideas and characters in a meaningful way without feeling like their work will be lost in the crowd.

Warm Bodies ...Warm Bodies ...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Watch it. Seriously.
I just got back from the cinemas, where I caught Warm Bodies with my bestie from LASALLE. I know what you're thinking, that the movie didn't look that great. Yet another zombie movie amongst the throngs of supernatural the media flings at us, yet another teenage romance to appeal to every young adult with a pulse. And I will be the first to admit that when I first heard the outline of the story - a cute young man who just happens to be undead falls in love with a young girl at first sight - I was skeptical. I assumed it would become a rehash of Twilight, and I just got over the nausea of seeing those posters cluttering all the billboards.
However, after trawling through the trailers and finding them appealing and funny, I decided that the movie was worth a shot. It advertises itself as a quirky, humorous take on zombies, throwing in a mix of teenage romance

I don't want people to stop drawing. Anyone, no matter how doofy or weird.
Bad art is still art, and I love bad art.
I don't hate ANY of the art I redraw or fav. All of it brings a smile to my face and it's always a sadness when it gets deleted due to flooding.
I don't redraw things to "make a statement" or "stick it" to someone, I do it because it's funny to me. And sometimes it's funny to me to redraw something by an obvious bait account or something "not that bad".
None of my work is malicious, it was all done with a light heart.
Woofs are for shits and giggles, a woof is not a weapon.
Bad art doesn't lower DA's quality, NON-art lowers its quality. Screenshots, traced bases, demotivationals, photobucket dumps, these are anti-art. Nothing new was created, only submitted. In the case of traced bases; de-created and submitted.
So please settle down a bit when you

Okay, no, on a more serious note: I've just had to re-draw the last two days' worth of frames and in-betweens for Louis because I realized I'd been drawing him "wrong".
Throughout Louis's character progress he's undergone several changes, most based on my own personal decisions, but many were also due to feedback from you guys here on DA, and I realise now that the "Louis is too skinny I don't like it" comments got to me more than they should have.
What these people don't realize is that Louis is ridiculously tall and skinny on purpose: he's a cartoon. He's not meant to be realistic, he's meant to be an exaggeration of the flamboyant gay stereotype, the skinny French stereotype, and his design reflects his wiles and cunning when it comes to out-witting his opponents.
