Honour Amongst Thieves ... Podcast?Let it never be said that Sak doesn't deliver!
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!

Concerning Latest Update + Tribute Videos!Okay a few things I need to say because I feel like repeating this in the comments is doing nothingConcerning Latest Update + Tribute Videos!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
IT'S OKAY TO BE SAD OVER A CHARACTER DEATH. BUT KEEP IN MIND THAT THE REASON SOMEONE DIES IN MY COMIC IS BECAUSE THEY HAD FAINTED INGAME. BY THE RULES OF NUZLOCKE, FAINT EQUALS DEATH.
Seriously, I even posted my godamn battle notes in the video for comparision. It was not me purposely trying to kill off a character out of drama. It did happen and I am drawing a COMIC BASED OFF OF MY OWN GAMEPLAY. The reason it looks that way is because I was able to build his character up for over a year so you guys get attached to my characters. I wanted you guys to like them or at least know about them before some of them got killed ingame.
FYI, MORE DEATHS ARE COMING IN THIS COMIC. I cannot assure whether this will be right away or later, but KNOW of it. It's a godamn nuzlocke. As I said before, it is okay if you were legitimately sad about this. I'm sorry it had to go that way bu
Plugging the VAsHello all,Plugging the VAs2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Things are still incredibly busy and hectic over here, in light of which I don't have much time to dedicate towards Honour Amongst Thieves at the moment. Rest assured, we haven't seen the last of the project and the characters around here, but in the meantime, I thought I might tide you over with some "goodies". Each of the characters' VAs are very talented in their own ways, and I thought I'd plug some of their websites for those of you interested in what they do when they're not cussing at pirates or berating heathens.

As well as voice acting for several college projects, Brendan is also a

TentaclesDo you know what's awesome?Tentacles2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
They can be cute, they can be intimidating. They can be colourful, or muted. They can appear fierce and strong, or swirl in delicate, graceful lines.
These muscular structures are best known as those attached jellyfish, but they're found in a massive array of invertebrates, some mammals & amphibians, and even in plants! We always associate them as having suckers, but some species come equipped with all sorts of interesting structures. Some tentacles have eyes at the end of them (snails) others have teeth (giant squid). Some can release venom (jellyfish) and others are lined with sharp swivelling hooks (colossal squid).
But where they are best known is the one place they are most often misnamed: the octopus. The 8 limbs on the octopus are actually arms, not tentacles. Tentacles are actually much longer than arms, and only have suckers on the very tips rather than scaling the whole length of them.
But tentacles jus

Want to Work in the Industry?:iconbobbie-the-jean: made a very good journal entry where she briefly discusses what to expect in the film industry, and I thoroughly recommend reading it to familiarize yourself with what it's like:Want to Work in the Industry?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I also recommend following her link to this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lcB9u-9mVE&feature=youtu.be which really drives home some of the issues with the demographic for artists/VFX in the world right now. As an animation graduate we are made aware of these discrepancies while still at college, and the hefty workloads and looming deadlines with zero compensation and lack of sleep could be considered a precursor to what we could expect in future.
A lot of people still seem to have rose-coloured glasses over their eyes in regards to what it must be like to be a "good artist" hired in the industry; this is the reality of it. You have to take the good with the bad, there are no guarantees, and you really, really have to love what you're doing.

Sounds like a fun contest and want to participate? Awesome! Here are some guidelines for the contest.
Draw any of the MoU cast (human, Pokemon) in an outfit that they would not normally wear!
Gijinkas of the Pokemon cast are allowed (dead 'mons too!)
Doing a crossover outfit entry is okay (i.e. KLK, SnK). BUT since creativity is part of the judging criteria (see below), please keep in mind that a entry with original outfits (or even outfits that take influence/reference to a show without copy-pasting) will be rated higher in that category.

So now I finally have some cash in my Valiard Kitty, it's time to start planning an animated trailer for my novel! Nothing extravagant. Just 30 seconds or so. Something to help spread the word.
I can totally do the visuals, but as for the audio, I am absolutely the worst person to try doing that.
Okay, I know there are people who do voice acting on commission over the Internet. I just have zero idea of where to start looking for these people. I sort of remember Newgrounds as being a place to look, but I also remember that Newgrounds is a deep, dark, sticky pit of nope.

My ApologiesHello all,My Apologies2 years 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

Auditions are now closed, and three "finalists" have been selected as the voices for the characters. Congratulations to:
as Louis Despatis
as James Hunter

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

Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)To many people in comics, I only arrived a few years ago with Joe the Barbarian. Then came Hellblazer (completed in 2008 before I began working on Joe), American Vampire: SOTF, and finally Punk Rock Jesus. Once in a while someone will mention Off Road (an OGN I did with Oni back in 2004), but for the most part it seems like I've been published only these last few years when in fact I've been published professionally for a decade now.Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This isn't a plea to have everyone go back through my previous work--in fact, I'm glad that a lot of the books I've done over the years aren't on readers' radars. I'm proud of it all, but the books above are a nice, tight group of titles to be associated with. They're all in a similar brand, they're all recent, they all have good creators/publishers associated with them, and the artwork is mostly consistent. Go back further than that, and you'll see artwork that looks nothing like the stuff I'm doing these days. (Although Off Road still holds up to some de
At the end of all thingsHello my lovely fellow deviants. How are we all doing?At the end of all things3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I returned from Middle Earth New Zealand last night, and to say I had an amazing time could only be a massive understatement.
I got my geek on all over New Zealand. I strolled through Hobbiton and drank ale at the Green Dragon. I carried the One Ring through the black gates of Mordor and all the way to Mt. Doom itself. I sped through the Ford of Bruinen at 80km/hr muttering "Nīn o Chithaeglir lasto beth daer; Rimmo nīn Bruinen dan in Ulaer", before singing at the foot of the Misty Mountains. I woke to sunrise over the Misty Mountains, before travelling beyond them to search for gold. That said, our gold hoard at the end of it would have made Thorin embarrassed for us.
When I wasn't having a geekgasm no one else in my company related to, I spent time drinking in the scenery. Rotorua was magical, from its bubbling mudpools and geysers, to the traditional Maori welcoming, cultural celebration and hangi feast. I walked to the fo

And take yourself some time to embrace yourself with the story of my newest dragon of incense, Dammar. This is such an incredible gift yet again by the wonderful Fox Amoore who continuously inspires me and never ceases to amaze me. This is the best interpretation of a dragon's story I have *ever* heard. Seriously.
There are so many details, real vocalists, voice actor, an incredible flute player, real self written Japanese lyrics.
If you don't listen to it, you definitely miss out on something great! °^°

The Deviousness Award is an award that will be handed out at the first day of each month to outstanding deviants.
Read about The Deviousness Award 2.0 here. It explains a bit more who will receive it and why it is given to outstanding deviants.
( added June 2015)
These days it can be easily recognized by the crown symbol.
There are no set criteria for the Deviousness Award, but in general the awarded deviants are known for their community spirit, their dedication and support. They are role models in different ways, who take that extra step to make deviantART a home for all of us.
How do I know that someone got Deviousness?
The latest deviant who was bestowed with the award can be found in the footer of deviantART for the entire month they received it
