  1. Whelp, signed on for my first two auditions today! 

    Honestly, it was a blast to do, but I do still have a lot of room for improvement. moreover, I need to stray a bit further away from old announcer voices, lol.

    if you wanted to check some of them out, you can on my profile here: https://www.castingcall.club/m/XyroDonatus

    or I added the files on here too :3

  2. Whelp, this week already has been a pretty good tester into weather or not I actually want to go forward with trying to do VA work...

    I literally adore the field. I cant help myself but wake up excited to write skits and start voicing them. And can I just say, I have had so many issues; I found listening to myself back to be a little cringe, I've struggled to find voices to fit characters, I've been unable to act out certain moods, as well as yell lines that I need to. The editing is weird and I don't quite understand exactly what I'm looking for sometimes, or why something sounds off. I need to work on my pacing, as well as my management of my surroundings. and above all else, I just need to keep practising.

    Which is why I'm going to keep on at it :3

    Although its only been 5 days, I've already learned about the best ways to show off work, and the do's and don'ts. And I've fudged up a bunch, which means I now have a frame of reference on what to do and how to handle myself.

    And honestly, that's the best part of it all!

    I'm just really excited for the future, and definitely want to do more.

    Still, hope everyone doing ok, and if there are any VA's out there, please feel free to drop some advise! I would truly appreciate it, as I love your trade!

    ~Your benevolent cinnamon roll,

    XyroDonatus~

      I'm glad you found something you love!! You're so talented so I'm certain you'll excel with practice and patience. Just remember your voice is a muscle, you have to train it like any other. :)

      Thank you Wedgy :3 I'll make sure to talk like a tornado and annoy everyone and everything 😜 

      ...Which is what I do anyway, without the voice acting thing, lol

  3. I'ma start working on some things... especially getting the badges re-designed (Some I find a bit silly compared to the rest of the ones... So expect a few re-designs soon-ish-maybe ;P)

      Sounds like some major conquering. 😁 Seriously though, this first try has a very talented direction to it. You're definitely going to be creating a lot of wonderful things the more comfortable and familiar you get. Looking forward! 🤩

      Congrats on getting to use a tablet! I would so love to have a styllis (is that spelled right?) Using a mouse is god-awful XD Just doesn't feel natural, even after all these years.

      So creepy, I love it!

      They really don't enforce proper food handling guidelines in most junk food joints. It's the top reason besides trying to be somewhat healthy that I avoid them. Employees rarely wash their hands as much as they should, change their gloves, or even adequately cover their hair. Gloves are often wiped on aprons rather than changed--aprons I've also seen taken with them to the toilet or outside for a smoke or garbage haul. Their equipment is used and reused and seldom cleaned or sanitised. Food containers are frequently stored in areas rife with dust (see: human skin) and the kitchens can often be so hot and with such high activity that there are some employees who sweat more than usual, which can also become surprise ingredients in your lunch. 

      Burger patties, chicken breasts, nuggets you name it-- they all sit in holding cabinets and time out only to be retimed by an employee who doesn't feel like cooking a new batch. Food which may not have been temped in the first place, let alone with a clean thermometer. Food which is cooked in or on appliances which likely aren't cleaned daily, with their grease traps running over. Food stored in walk-in coolers which haven't been cleaned in 5 years and have mold spots on the ceiling and under the shelving. 

      Its just a good idea in general to be in charge of your own food as much as possible.

      @Wedgy rarely agreed to something that much 😂 

  8. Whelp, gonna be buisy-buisy over the next few months, got a lot of life to re-organise and a load of goals to strive for, but I'm going to do them all, achieve them all, then come back to tell the tale 😜

    Will still be around though, so if anyone needs me, just give me a shout! ^^

      Can't wait to hear all about your adventures! 

  9. Sorry for the lack of... Well, anything really xD been super buisy what with uni work and other stuff.

    Anywho, I'm going to likely be doing some more pixel art soon to post, but today I'll probably be buisy with birthday stuffs, so ya can expect to see (maybe) more from me again some time soon! (I hope. I miss posting ;-;)

  10. slightly back!

    Head still hurts, but can now leave bed! yay! XD 

    BACK TO WORK, ME!!!

  11. Ahh, Friday the 13th.... 

    would be scarier if it wasn't for the fact that my birthday falls on friday the 13th of october, sometimes! (Albeit, not this year though, since its the 13th of October, which is Sunday ;-;)

     

  12. Hey all, going to be dipping for a little bit, since I have a butt-load of work, uni coming up and head cold from hell.

    Will still be around, just not going to be very active. Sorry ;-;

      We'll be sick together. Get some sleep and recharge some.

  13. Been trying to experiment more with simple little stories made up on the fly. They aren't particularly good, but giving myself a random set of factors to work with has at least been good warm up for day-to-day writing.

    Still, if anyone ever is interesting in checking them out, they are in my blog on here 

    Link to those like myself who prefer the easy transgression 😜

    “Sometimes, you don't realise that you're drowning,

    Once you’ve become everybody else's anchor.

    Even those who tell you to be yourself, will judge you for your insecurities.

    Your "weakness" was never your downfall… it was your blind affection.”

      Can't wait to write more from Lewis' perspective into the world. One of my favourite characters as a whole :3

  15. Spent half of today chasing a wolf spider around my room, trying to capture the poor blighter to let it out. Judging from sheer size alone, it's definitely a lady. And she is one heck of a large lady, that's for sure.

    Not got a phobia of spiders or anything, just hate waking up to a spider, around half the size of my face, SITTING ON MY FACE!

  16. :3 I have spent a bit of time today refining my shading for pixel-art stuffs

    Other then that, as crazy as ever, isn't that right me? *Nods in response*

      Have you considered using a dither style shading? You'll be able to get a much more seamless type gradient that way and it'll still be pixelated for that type of aesthetic.

  17. Feeling pretty miffed today, was caught in a balls-up with a legless wazzock who was being a little gobby about being minted, but it all just came out as tosh. Nothing more came of it, but it left me with the collywobbles...

    ....Sorry, I get stereotypical British when flustered ;-;

  18. *Poomfs on Beanbag*

    ....ehhhhhh.....

    my brain is confuzzled. Really trying to think of what to write about in the Archive, since I wanna make another lesson but can't think of a decent topic... What with story writing and all, I feel brain-melted...

    Anyone got any ideas? or anything the want to learn about in narrative? anything at all? ;-;

    1. Mazino

      I would be interested in how to create a story for a game character.

      Like Noctis from Final Fantasy or Sora from Kingdom Hearts. 

       

    2. Xyro

      Xyro

      That's something I would be happy to get into actually, since We've been covering game characters at uni.

      ATM I'm writing up on the creation and development of mute/silent characters, but afterward I'll jump straight to game characters!

      Cheers Nico!!! :D

      This reminds of me some mute/silent char i seen but they where not from anime though 👻

      so all in all happy wit the last year or so of work! :D

  24. Been feeling a little.... off recently. Not sure why though, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I'm just incredibly tired from a mix of college and personal things. xD

    Hope things go back to the way they used to be xD I want to feel less tired all the time ^w^

      You should try to rest and relax when you can. Take a walk or go out with some family or friends. Or just hang around here if you like. 

  25. Cut off mid sentence, The trooper was grappled from behind by one of the creatures. Raising it's ugly, distorted head above his neck, the creature let out an unnatural squeal of both pain and joy, as it went to sink it's morphed fangs into his neck.

     

    Staring the creature dead in the only disfigured eye it had, the soldier went to accept his fate…

     

    ….as the creature's head exploded.

     

    Standing at the edge of the building, Davis held his Blunderbuss aloft. Smoke drifted out of the end of the barrel, as he slowly unscrewed his flask with one hand and took a quick swig.

     

    In disbelief, the soldier tried to form words in his mouth, but he just couldn't. Pushing the carcass off himself, he picked up his sword, Gave a quick and appreciative nod to Davis, and continued on his way.

     

    Watching the soldier rush off to join the others, Davis once again sat beside Pint, and continued to feed ammunition into the weapon.

     

    Pint: (Throwing a few quick glances over to Davis, smiling) ‘Ya know lad, you're pretty damn accurate with that thing! How can ya aim a gun with that kind of spread anyway?’

     

    After a few seconds of silently staring off into the distance, Davis responded just as he was about to take another sip from his flask.

     

    Davis Drafter: (Without a smile, still staring off into the distance) ‘...I don't...’

     

    As Davis re-screwed the flask shut, it took pint a few seconds to get what he meant. Cracking yet another smile and shaking his head, Pint returned to laying waste to the onslaught of disfigured demons.
