Animation Trouble. by taeshilh Animation Trouble. by taeshilh
Souppy knows exactly how to embarrass me. Based on a real conversation when he began singing this really bloody embarrassing "theme song" that made me curl up and die on the bed.

Doodled up super quick, you'll probably be getting many of these random dumb comics using shoddy sharpies and pens until I get my real pens to ink my chapters FFFSHDKGHFVGKFGH

Funny!

Please tell more about the theme song! Is that complete lyrics? What about the music part? Who made it?

Maybe some of us could voice act for you?

I'd be a really judgemental whore about it as I'd probably be super duper picky about who would voice-act and the quality of it even though it's a crappy comic, but I don't know.. I think I rather save the headache and guilt by just making it awesome and action-through-music and stuff ;.;

In the future, though, maybe.. it would be fun!

Auditioning by me would always be ready for me to act as Mike, Paulo, David, or the teacher.

I'd be impressed if you could flip from Mike to Paulo, as I'd imagine their voices to be really different. "O__O;" Indescribable!

aww you guys are cute xD
I like the transitions in the panels at the bottom, great expressions!

Go for it! I think any type of animation would be great whether you used voices or not, Good luck :D
(I know alot of people complain about bad voice acting and such during animations, so that's why I'd never use voice acting either :XD: )

Actually,when you just started the series i completely misunderstood daisy,
and for the longest time i wondered if she had had a voice,would she have a slight southern accent.
you know ? typical t.v series sweet,old,fat waitress voice ?,that calls everyone "shugar" but dosent pronounce the "R" ?
you know what i'm sayin'
i even wanted to ask you,but never got around to it.
now i figure she'd have high pitched school girl voice.

anyway all character voices can be easily picked from the stock of pre existing typical anime character voices.
mike will be:deep voiced but embarrassed sounding guy
lusy is:angry girl voice
paulo is:cool voiced pervert guy
and so on.

A-a Bittersweet cartoon... *gets lost in the sheer bliss of the idea* I could see it so well...

*Shakes head to clear thoughts but know she will be thinking about this for a least a week*

I have the hardest time trying to think of what my own characters would sound like, too (minus a few). I guess it's mainly because you read/think in your own voice and you sort of get used to it to the point where it's hard to think of them sounding differently. I dunno.

Also a more serious suggestion. Most writers read their dialogue aloud when writing it. It not only helps form more natural dialogue but also helps give each character develop unique speaking habits.

As I said in the comic, I'd never do it with voices. I'd never be happy with them because even I don't know how they're supposed to sound ":-["

Which is why you think about it. Visualize it... but with sound instead of images.

... Is there a word for visualizing sound? Audiolizing?

You think I haven't thought about it? I've obsessed over what songs Lucy might potentially sing! That's kind of loserish of me "XD;" I mean I'm honestly not the only one who seems to be having trouble attaching voices to the characters, it's difficult to attach a voice that isn't just some "generic high school person" voice.

I've had cases where friends would be speaking out in my "character's voice" and then they'd stop and think "Waitaminute, how WOULD that character sound?" I don't know how to describe, and I mean I know if I sat down and went through voice samples and everything, I'd find it. But I never had the chance to nor do I think it's worth it because I feel more passionate about making an animation that is driven by music and antics instead of one-liners.

I attach voices to characters all the time, in every comic I ever read. It's quite fun, and it entertains some people when I read it to them. :3

Now that I think of it you can do Souppy's idea but instead of full episodes you could do like small 10 second funnies. Like the asteroid clip you made, then again you can make the opening to the video like... Lucy's and Mike's Help Support "To play the video you click here, bla bla bla" "Mike you idiot! You forgot to mention the pause button!" so on and so forth.

But its your Bittersweet Project so you do what you please.

By the way I can't wait to see how you do this :( Making stuff just set to music can look sort of awkward sometimes and other times it's the best. Either way, I don't really think you could really do it any other way. Attaching voices to your RETARDED CATS would look pretty silly.

And I know you're not doing this but I really hate animations with just text but they lip-sync as if someone's actually talking. I think the only way anyone could make that work was if there was some sorta text noise and the characters just sorta bobbed up and down with their mouths opening and closing like Paper Mario or something.

either way I WISH YOU LUCK IN YOUR FINEST OF PURSUITS. bro ;-;

Ahahah oh my god that song is so embarassing sounding and I can imagine JUST how it sounds and if someone sang it around me I think I would also want to curl up and die. I love things like that... trivial things that are just so embarassing that they make you want to stop existing. XD

I wasn't sure what was going on with Mike and Lucy's mouths in panel 6 until I took a close look. I thought Lucy had a big ol' Wilford Brimley mustache with some weird squiggle in it for a minute.

Also, please make a full-fledged drawing of Lucy with a big ol' Wilford Brimley mustache.

If you were too have voices makes Lucy's voice like Navi's from Legend of Zelda.

Then I suppose Mikes would sound like Link's or I suppose whatever Souppy's voice sounds like just to make it easier.

Pal, show this to Souppy -> [link]
A lively proof that is no need voices to make a cool animation! I will never voice something if learn animation. Cuz I just know that Woundless could sound like Sephiroooooooooooooth!

Souppy was kidding.

But it looks cheap that the mouths are moving while text is at the bottom, it distracts from the animation ":-[" Some of the text lines are uneccessary, too. Like "such power".. couldn't the character just imply that through their face? It's expressive and great enough, but the dialogue is dead corny.

When I was contemplating doing an animation, I meant no dialogue. Not even subtitles. That sort of thing, you know? Because if it gets to the point where you're doing animations for the mouth, why not just do the voices?

SoftMonKeychains Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2008  Professional Artisan Crafter
Hu, I wasn´t talking about the dialogue, that was useless. I just wanted to show you an animation without voicing, with just music like you refered in the comic.
If someday I make an animation, it will NEVER voiced. Or ask another voices. Not mine. Mine is a crap of english!!!!!

taeshilh Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2008  Professional General Artist
Ahh, I thought you were showing an example where there's no voices, but text.. but yeah, that's what I'd want to do! Even though obviously I don't think I would be doing as detailed action-scenes as that animation. None of my characters are super heroes so no flying around and stuff, bwahh.

Would be jammin' though.

Hey, why do you have to do an animation in english? Why not your native language if that might potentially make you feel more comfortable? XD

Nah, I will prefer an animation that gestures will say all. And who said that the animation is action or ass fighting? I prefer silly stuff instal, my stuff is silly enough to be focused in silly fun. If no one made that before, whatever. I have flash but I cannot hand it. But soon I will learn to use in university. As subject. Pretty cool.
