Two months ago, I have planned out a design contest on TEMOX.com, then later organized the whole event, as well as been one of the judges.
It was about creating Chinese themed heroes in American comic style.
In one month, we recieved quite a lot of entries: http://bbs.temox.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=300142
There were plenty of amazing ideas, althought some might be not "Chinese" or "American" enough, interesting nonetheless.
Two weeks ago, press media Global Times was somehow interested, then reported this event on their page: http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/791170.shtml#.UdO1xthaf_b
That was some interesting experience.
ATTENTION: BotCon 2012 Dealers third party toys banned from BotCon & NOW FAN ART TOO: http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-news/conventions-15/botcon-2012-policy-update-regarding-fan-art-174729/
I can understand the action of banning 3rd party toys. It's still the right thing to do, even Botcon itself was one of the first making those.
BUT FAN ARTS TOO????
So how far is Hasbro from joining the PIPA/SOPA campaign, eh?
I'v been dreaming to go to BOTCON for over ten years, never had the chance. But such dream is no more.
You have your 100% OFFICIAL CONVENTION now.
To me, the one BOTCON I've ever dreamed a
Somehow I totally let my DA account rust for ...errr.... two years? I dunno~ Maybe mostly because I hardly drew anything in free time~ OK, there actually wasn't much so-called "free time". I kinda keep myself busy with commissions after work~
So, my last journal entry talked about working on animation production for two years then left, in order to enter toy production.
Now I've been in this place for another 2 years... I learnt a lot, A LOOOT! And there it seems there're still much to explore. Last month, we had a meeting with a few Japanese collaborators. They used to work in Bandai for decades, helped developed star brands like Gundam,
Holly smudge!! It's about one and a half year since last time I wrote a journal here! (I did update gallery once a while...)
Basically, I had a chance to form a 3D production team, and be in charge of the 3D part of a TV show. There were hell lot of struggles and presures... lack of experience, hardship of fiting Maya with Flash, hyper-super-ultra tied schedual... oh, yes, the schedual was the best... 46 episodes with about each 15 mins of length, including preproduction, all had to be done in about 9 months...myself never believe time could be cought... It can. It's a miracle that we actually made it happen XDD
About the show, I don't reco
Finished. It was actually the premier version - the combined 1st 3 episodes.
The production was... well, obviously a rush work.
Translations are mostly word-to-word, I mean, I can still see the English sentence structure from those lines. There're also some misunderstandings to the original text. One really nice thing, the names and Transformer-related nouns are the same as 23 years ago. Boy, that makes us overage kids cry.
Voices, yes. I dunno if humans get better actors or the Robots-team havn't yet got into their characters. Sandac, Sari and Fanzone fit their original characters pretty well. But Bots and Cons sounded kinda dumb, emotion
