Archive for ‘Video’
This is the first time I’ve ever attempted to record myself penciling. It came out a bit warped since my art desk is on a pretty sharp angle and I was having a hard time positioning my webcam. I’m probably gonna do more of these (especially if I might possibly go on a very short hiatus again) so tell me if you like it or not.
And you can tell I bite my nails. I was being good, you know, then a few intense games of Civ 5 did me in.
It’s been a while but here’s another timelapse video! My biggest one yet! It goes from the pencils to the inking to the colors on the issue 2 cover. I was trying to keep the video around ten minutes long so I couldn’t show every single step (it was that or make the video go way too fast, many of the clips are already sped up 4000% anyway.) Adobe Premiere Elements gave me some trouble with this one, but it’s the best thing for editing the sound and speeding up videos. I did the titles in Windows Movie Maker though, because I like the ones in there better and a bit of a hack gives me my little website name bug.
And you can of course see the finished product here:
And of course you can buy the issue when it’s on sale ;P
This weekend I will be distracted by the game I’ve been waiting for all year while my characters languish in limbo at the end of issue 4.
Rest assured I have been working on issue 5, and I intend to start releasing it before the issue 4 print is done so as not to waste any more time. But this weekend… at least Friday and Saturday, I am going to lose to Skyrim. My plan is to basically play it a bit Friday and nearly all day on Saturday and just get it out of my system. After that I’ll cut back to an hour or two a day. Which isn’t much considering it’s a 500 hour long game if you do everything in it. But hey, you can see my Steam tag in the sidebar there, you can scold me if I go over.
This little bit of insanity was just going to be a comic originally, but for some reason I was compelled to make it an animation, even though it’s crappy it was still fun, and I did it in a matter of hours (using Photoshop, Premiere Elements.) I was trying to convert it to Flash but it didn’t work out. I didn’t really intend to spend that much time on it because, you know, I should be comicing. Hopefully its just a treat for the fans while they wait for more updates.
Also Terith was supposed to get a line but I decided to not subject you all to me trying to do a Scottish accent. Or even an Irish one. Or whatever it is he has these days.
Not quite the hiatus time video entertainment I may have promised (will be doing a speed draw video of the issue 5 cover.) I’ve been slowly working on my own art, and professional work, but meanwhile I’ve been playing alot of video games.
This weekend especially my friends and I have been playing the beta for Tera online, an MMO I’m actually likely to continue to play. We recorded ourselves for fun so if you’ve ever wanted to hear the cherubic dulcet tones of my weird voice with my New England accent that only increases in intensity as I get tired… well there you go!
I’m of course a very androgynous male elf in game named Ziggy. My friend Angel named her character Stardust. You can see where this is going.
