xx; Holy crap, has it really been 3 months since I last updated...!? Who remembered the days when I used to update every 2nd week!?
When I'm not voice acting, I'm tackling my life. I got a TMJ scare a while back--Imagine your mouth being in immense pain every time you close your mouth when your livelihood is voice acting. It's better now though. I hope my grandpa and great aunt are alright... They both had to go to the hospital in the same week... They were fine upon visiting, but looked really sad when we had to leave... They're both really old and I really want them to see how far I can go while I still have them around...
No, I haven't been playing Skullgirls since it came out. The TV has been broken long before and won't be fixed until both of my siblings finish their finals. My sister is graduating! She's getting an associate's degree and is hunting for an art college that'll focus on her interests~
Me, I've been out of school for at least a year now. Busy with voicework, sure, but I'm beginning to think that I oughta go back to school sometime. Perhaps to major in art, namely animation. I'm just terrified of majoring in another field "that I actually hate" (like screenwriting/writing). My plan is to save up to probably take a few "smaller" art/animation classes to test the waters before investing in another degree. People who follow me on Tumblr and FB know how much I draw or express an interest in animation/storytelling using it. I have too many projects I want to do, but not enough time or skill to make 'em happen.
I'm trying extremely hard to wrap up voicing in... Around 10 more projects until I'm "completely free" (3 of them can even be done today if I work hard enough), but I want to use that time to get my life back on track. I'm distracted by too many things and I seriously need to focus on the stuff most important to me now. My friends and family are very aware of my concerns.
...I'm gonna start spamming more of this in the near future. For now, just know that I voice a pretty big character in this. Well, relatively speaking. The cast will be amazing.
Speaking of graduating, I voiced in quite a few student projects. One of them I can't link to anymore, but there's a promise of it being on NG eventually and I hope it does soon! It's very cute~
But the student animation I'm MOST proud of taking part in? I voice Beopup, the fox, in Kagemono!
And Darkwolf voices Gertrude the skeleton dog and Amanda voices the shadow mouse~ You have absolutely NO idea how excited and proud I am to have worked with Otherwise (or Arythusa)! She's an animator I've always wanted to work with since I've first seen her animations while interning at a post production studio years back~ I practically jumped at the opportunity to work with her, a while before it was publicly known that I voice Ms. Fortune in Skullgirls~
Last year she was invited to work at Gobelins, she's graduating from CalArts, and I believe she's gonna intern at Pixar (again?)! As someone who enjoys the quality animations from all of those places and hopes to voice for all of them someday, it's been a huge honor to work on Kagemono~ Wonderful student animations like these are why I do them, 'cause the students of today might/will be the geniuses of the future and who wouldn't want to help them when they needed it most?!
Summer Rec is an AWESOME animation series he wants to make happen and while the pilot is already close to completion, with other amazing cast members in the lot that you REALLY OUGHTA CHECK OUT THE KICKSTARTER to learn more about, he wants to go big with it. Festivals, TV series... It can only happen if he has the funding (and a new computer).
Meanwhile, I'm also helping Rina-chan with her Equestria LA efforts! It's not on Kickstarter anymore, 'cause it's been successfully funded, but every little bit helps in making it an awesome con! I voice Fluttershy and Rarity in this promo, animated by the oh-so-kind rebornMCW~
Rival Threads: Last Class Heroes is also successfully funded, but if you're a game dev, you know VERY well that every bit helps. Seriously. This game is gorgeous and could use more pretty-ness! I voice the leading lady, and other members of the cast include Animator1mike, RiverK, and Sarah Williams, who voiced Peacock in Skullgirls! And hopefully 1 more fella! Check out the Kickstarter for all the details and goodies (like tons of artwork and a demo of sorts of the game) while this? This is something to get your appetite goin'~
YEP. AND THANKFULLY, YOU CAN CHECK OUT MY LINK-SPAMMING TO THE LEFT OF THE PAGE THIS TIME 'CAUSE NEWGROUNDS IS AWESOME. HERE, HAVE SOME MORE PROJECTS I'M IN.
I voice the titular character (lawl) Loren in Loren the Amazon Princess! It's an RPG game for the PC and I love the equal opportunity romance in this game~
EMBEDDING IS FUN, CAN'T YOU TELL!? Denten, a cast buddy who worked on a Charlie Brown flash with me, put together a neato adaptation of one of the Scott Pilgrim comics~ I voice Stacey Pilgrim, and there're other nifty folks on board, should you check the credits! ...I'd link all of them if I knew all of their accounts, especially NG accounts. ALL OR NUTHIN'!!
And lately, I've been moving up from additional voices to incidentals in a studio I've been frequently working with, so my bit parts actually have some screen time now! Yay! I'll share them on my Facebook sometime~
You get a funfetti cupcake if you've read everything.
