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
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,
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)
NOTE TO SELF;
DON'T EAT TRASH!
TRASH = FOOD POISONING!
FOOD POISONING = NOT-HAPPY TUMMY

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
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! ^^
Sorry for the lack of... Well, anything really 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 ;-;)
Head still hurts, but can now leave bed! yay! XD
BACK TO WORK, ME!!!
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 ;-;)
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 ;-;
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.”
~Lewis Sterge, MMaM~
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!
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 ;-;
*Poomfs on Beanbag*
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? ;-;
When you get a day where you think to yourself that you always wanted to be somebody, but you realise now that you have to be a little more specific.
*throws bread* MUCO!
How have you been, buddy?
Long time no speak Metro!
How are things holding up, buddy?

glad to see ya keeping up with life though bud! keep up the good work
Things have been pretty good on my end. Still writing, got a bunch of other stories on the line and the first book of MMaM nearly ready to get published, at uni and now trying to focus on learning new things.
so all in all happy wit the last year or so of work!
Lol, I forgot that I still had my good old Chihiro Emote!
Good times! ^w^
I challenge you to an all out Hedgehog war!
...gets ALL the pudding cups! O_O
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.
Hope things go back to the way they used to be I want to feel less tired all the time ^w^
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.
