Art trade with MtfoxX3Dragonfire sighed as his paw touched the warm sand. He could feel that Aurora, who stood beside him, had the same feeling. The two dragons walked down to the sea over the warm sand. Dragonfire gave Aurora a quick glance over again. Everytime he looked at her he saw something different than he had seen in her years ago. Earlier, he had held for only a brutal female dragon. But today it was different. Aurora woke him from his thoughts as she said. "Well, here we are. Beautiful, do not you think?" Dragonfire nodded almost instantly. "I think so too...my love." Around Aurora's lips played a small smile while the two of them walked down the warm sand. Dragonfire spread a warm blanket over the sand of the beach and built on umbrella. Aurora lay in the meantime on the ceiling and looked at the sea, she said." Dragonfire, can you put some sun cream my back?" Dragonfire nodded, then sat down beside her and pulled out the sun cream. He made some on both paws, rubbed them together and
First of all, I'm so sorry for my inactivity... I've just started my new (and first) part time job, and I'm having a hard time figuring out a good balance between work and my personal (and art) life... I really am trying! please just bear with me... I'm doing my best to post and communicate but it's proving to be very difficult ;-; Just know that if I'm not responding to you, or if I'm not commenting on your work, it's nothing you did! It's just that life is a thing and it's hard for me to cope with that...
Okay now onto what this journal is about...
Well, okay... a lot of people have been wanting me to animate Flint and Steel to be a series on YouTube... and while that isn't going to happen (for reasons I don't really feel like explaining because I've had a long day and I'm very tired and it would be like, two more giant paragraphs), I do want to animate short clips/scenes that I imagine. However, I would naturally need a script and voice actors for the characters. While I would provide the script of course, the problem comes in finding voice actors. I've thought of using pre-existing audio and just making an animation to work around it, but it... it just doesn't feel as genuine... you can't really get the same feel from the characters how they were meant to be portrayed... at least not accurately... and since that's pretty much the entire point of doing this I think I won't do that.
I want to try to tone it down on doing MAP parts (not completely stop, but I want to work on personal projects), and start focusing on animating my story and characters on my own terms. I would want to do this so that I get a better feel for how Flint and Steel would look/play out as an animated series rather than in a comic or book format that it's sort of been thus far (because it was always intended to be presented as an animated series rather than a book or comic), and also so that I can give you guys a better feel for the story and characters as I imagine them .
But, here's the problem...
Normally when someone wants to do this, they host a casting call for their series. However, I don't plan on animating the full series... just clips... these clips will range from fully fleshed out, colored, shaded, and with effects, to just storyboards... and there will be little to no rhyme or reason for what I'm going to be putting up... it will sort of just happen as the scenes come to me and as I want to flesh them out. So, for something as strange and uncertain as this, I don't know if it would be fair to people to host a full on casting call, especially for the voice actors that would end up getting the parts of the characters.
So... I need your opinion... should I do it? As I said, I don't want to do this with already existing audio quips, so I wouldn't do this at all unless I had voice actors for these characters specifically, but this is something I really want to do. I want to flesh out the scenes and characters in the animated way that I envision them, and on my own terms rather than being set to short clips of music. I think it would be good for myself, as well as good for those of you that want to know more about the characters and series (since I won't be animating the series independently for YouTube).
Let me know! And, if you think it's a good idea, and would want to play one of the characters... let me know as well! I naturally won't be accepting people now of course, but it would give me a better idea of what and who I'll have to work with ^^
Hey ya'll! I am just a young student hopefully working towards majoring in animation. I specialize in a more cartoony style that is rather... um... unique... I still have a LOT to learn about art and animation, but I'm happy to do so. |
I am also working on my own... um... I guess we'll just call it a "series", called Flint and Steel. It's still in the works and I've put a good 3 years of my life into it thus far, and I want to continue developing it and... maybe... possibly.... eventually make my own cartoon from it A long shot, yeah... but a girl can dream! The majority of the artwork posted here will revolve around the world of Flint and Steel.
