Have a Chat with Darkspeeds (LIVESTREAM)[UPDATE] Thanks for the awesome two and a half hour session guys! Been lots of fun talkin' about Sonic music, college, travelling, economic crisis, voice acting, comics and loads of other stuff! Wait... Did I say economic crisis? lol
Anyways it was also cool to do some voice impressions on the spot and based off listener request! Once again I share my thanks to people and friends who have attended the session, couldn't have had a show without yas.
Hi guys! Just posting this for kicks. I really need a break from all of these crazy assignments due at School of Design. I'll be doing some vocal recordings based off the Sonic Archie characters that I'll be using for my latest voice demo reel.
When I'm done we can have a catch and just talk about stuff! I'll try to keep it to an hour since it's 1AM atm... lol See you there.

Darkspeeds' Sonic Archie Voice-Overs [SET 2]Annnd here we go! All the latest voices with the fat cut out of it. Also complimenting the voice overs is the music - and on Shard's end an extra special addition of SFX's for dramatic effect.

Shard says... 'I love you'
Can you be my Nicole...?
Anyways I had a ton of fun recording these two characters. Guntiver gets a Russian accent (and even speaks some Russian!). Shard gets extra attention. He's been a hot topic as of late and I did the best I can to portray him based off the dramatic issue that is Sonic Universe #50. In this variation you get the whole lot (stuff that won't be fully used in the final Youtube compilation). In the Soundcloud version that you're about to hear, Shard really does say: "I love you"...
Have fun while I'm still finishing off the next Darkspeeds' Sonic Archie Voice-Overs!

Sonic Boom creative challenge! (Win a sketch!)
I'm in a good mood this week. I'm up to date with homework and got plenty of awesome things I can do before the Monday.
Now I was thinkin': "Let's get the creative Sonic community involved".
Give yourself a challenge this week - see if you can draw any character featured in SONIC BOOM so far and have them eating food. Try and see what you can come up for ideas - imagine what they'll most likely be eating on a casual basis, after all, food is what keeps us going!
I've done my sketch but I'm going to paint this later.

Seriously I want you all to give this a try. You'll learn something awesome and end up with a kick-ass finished drawing.
What you need:
Charcoal pencil (2B or 4B)X-acto knife (for the kiddies, be very CAREFUL when using this to sharpen your charcoal pencil)Willow/Vine charcoal (alternatively you can use this instead of the charcoal pencil and X-acto knife combo but you won't get the precision you need for the finer details)Sand paperKneed eraserPrecision eraser (something like the Mono Zero Eraser on this site - alternatively you can cut a regular eraser and make it pointy)Printer and paper (go to the Sonic Channel site and download ANY of the official Sonic artwork that is prepared specifically for rendering)Tissue paperYour index finger or thumbEnthusiasm!

Also, shoutout to :iconHappyAggro: for handing me this link on a quick summary of what's legit on the whole franchise as well as link to the latest updates of Sonic Boom when they come.

New Anime InformationHello there, :iconkiwi-ink: speaking in name of the KagePro Wiki.New Anime Information1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yesterday Tower Records announced new information about the Kagerou Project Anime called "Mekaku City Actors". It will apparently be animated by studio Shaft (Madoka, Negima, Bakemonogatari, etc.) and directed by Akiyuki Shinbo. Although Jin and Shidu haven't tweeted anything official themselves yet, the information seems to be legit, seeing as photos from the official announcement exist on the internet, as well as the information being tweeted by several Japanese fans!
Thought I would let everyone who doesn't follow the Wiki on Twitter know. ~

CyberbullyingIt's 3 AM and I literately cannot sleep. This is perhaps the most stressful subject I have typed in deviantART, and I don't expect people to agree with me, but.. here I go.Cyberbullying1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The internet is a place where one can freely speak whatever they want. But how free should it be? You can easily type up horrible things about a person and it probably won't affect you. But you know what? This is wrong. Very wrong.
Why do I say this you may ask? Well...
I took part of cyberbullying. And I know, there will be lots of people looking down at me for this, but I will bravely stand here and say the truth.
Now, I didn't necessarily troll or drew something that's downright terrible, but I did gossip. I gossiped around someone's back, and picked on them for being different. My friends and I thought that by picking on one person, it would be funny or "cool".
But do you know how wrong this truly is? This is VERY wrong. It does NOT make you cool or f

Keep your head up: Stay Strong!Life is challenging, isn't it? There are many moments where we face failures that we'd probably never forget about. It is our failures that makes us go downhill; we tend to get depressed after regretting our mistakes that would be impossible to fix. Do you remember your mistakes? I know I have.Keep your head up: Stay Strong!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And when you do remember it, our thorny mind is regretting that moment each minute.
But you know what? It's okay to feel this way.
It's alright to make a mistake. Making a mistake is called being a human, because as far as I know, out of the 8 billion people out there in the world, there is not one person in the world who had never made a mistake. Everyone makes a silly mistake during our lifetime, even our friends and people who we love so much.
Did you make a mistake? That's okay; try again! You have purpose in this life! The world was created for us to live with a reason, is it not?
Don't wish for something to happen; go do it and make it happen! Do you have a crush on that c

Tyler, who just recently been featured in Tasha's Megaman Comic Drama (he played as the hard boiled detective - Gilbert D. Stern), is taking helm of being a director of his own Sonic comic drama project!
He's going to embark on an epic task of doing the entirety of CHAOTIX QUEST from the SONIC UNIVERSE comics!
Today's been a beautiful day - which is also good news for the Chinese community in San Francisco since they're hosting a two day Lunar Year festival in the streets of Chinatown! But I already done my stroll through the market stalls and watched the lion dance parade through the crowd. I'm waiting to pick up my laundry that is to be dried up in about 30 minutes.

I have just finished reading up on PIRATE PLUNDER PANIC. What an awesome conclusion to the story arc - great job Tracey Yardley, I tip my pirate's hat to you and the team at Archie Publications Inc.
All good adventures must come to an end and this was no exception, the ending left me feeling bittersweet with Marine's tears.
Now that I've gathered all the material I need for my project I feel really inspired and ready to kick booty!
For those out there who own all copies of the Pirate Plunder Panic arc I highly suggest you revisit it again and this time have the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN playlist playing in the background - it's amazing how the soundtrack fit the mood with every turn of the page! What a fantastic experience that was.

I'm in my final month of classes before the end of the very first semester - gosh it's gone by pretty darn quick!
I've got four more major assignments to do but before that I got this bloomin' bugger to hand in by 8:30AM for Analysis of Form class.

Another 4 hours into it...
It's currently 1:00AM and I ain't stopping!
But yeah I'm okay since I had plenty of rest the past couple of days - I had a soar throat and it makes my body weak to do anything. I'm getting better and feeling confident that I can finish this - not to an A level but at the very least to a level where I'm pretty damn satisfied with my work.
Remember this rendering exercise that I did a couple months ago?
Well basically this Still Life project puts all those skills to work - from technical drawing to full rende
