      As a matter of fact, he worked off of this original design from the Hyperion piece.


  7. Would you call yourself a Fantasy RPer or a Sci-Fi Rper?

      Fantasy and magic is awesome, Sci-fi is all beautiful and all, it's just that I dont do much research to actually be as good as others

      Someone who understands :grintears:, Now excuse me, but I gotta get some sleep, need to wake up in 2 hours and get ready for school

      I hate homeworks

  8. Interested at all in drawing cartoons with this kind of style and simplicity?


    Since I'd need to rig it for animation any way, I'd vectorize any sketches you'd make--let me know if you'd be interested!

      That's basically the idea yeah lol, I'd need references for 3/4 views and head orientation, then the tweening frames between different views and a straight profile! I don't have much a trained eye for maintaining things like volume or perspective and it'd be super easy for me to trace over something rather than sitting down and doing it from scratch though I'll probably have to. Here's an admittedly fuzzy sample I just rendered from a test puppet:


      I use Adobe Illustrator for all drawing or illustration then import those into After Effects for most the animation. For this I'm going to be using Character Animator, which is something like an extension of After Effects, that uses facial recognition and your own reflection to control most of the puppet. It's incredibly cool. I've built manual puppets before and have only started using Ch since Thursday, but the speed and ease it can be done in Ch is pretty incredible. It even syncs the mouth positions with Adobe Sensei so any audio (whether your mic or imported audio) will change visemes of the mouth automatically--it's very cool!

      If you're interested, Okay Samurai has a youtube series specifically for beginners. A lot of the community highlights are people who'd only illustrated, never animated, but found Character Animator to be so easy to use, that they now are able to animate... So... If you like this kind of stuff, it's pretty attainable. You just need a webcam, though technically you could import video and do facial tracking on it, then use those points to drive/automate a puppet, use your keyboard to control other things in real time or click and drag limbs in real time while recording all of it, etc. It's not technical like After Effects, it's very user-friendly.

    3. P.N.See



      Here's my attempt on simple head turns. Obviously, I have tough times keeping things tight and clean. Also, Photoshop leveling. But still, some basic principles on perspective matter are present (as far as I understand them), such as eyeball's relative scaling, positioning and so on.

    4. P.N.See


      BTW, all you said about Character Animator does sound neat. Unfortunately, my income (as well as my schedule and life choices) wouldn't allow me to afford the Creative Cloud subscription. I know there is other way around, but I don't think if that's tolerable in US.

  9. The feeling you get when   you finally reach a point in your rp.. things  start to get REAAALLLY interesting.


  10. Finals here.. Finals there.. I am kinda losing my mind. Finals are everywhere..

  11. mother!- 10/10

    See it. I've nothing more to say. Do not under any circumstances look up the plot. If you don't like surrealism, or anything that isn't simple or straightforward, this film is not for you. If you do...just see it.

  12. Off to go see the new Aronofsky flick mother!, which is looking like it'll be the biggest cinematic mind-fuck in theaters right now, so I'm quite excited. I'll talk about it afterwards, and see if I can make any sense of it. Wish me luck.

  13. I should be up and ready to go this week. 

    Damn y'all got real quiet, real quick.

  14. I'm having to take a break from RPing, sadly, school is hitting pretty hard. Once it calms down I'll be up and running again!

  15. Honestly, my favorite thing about Saturdays is having plans in the evening and spending all afternoon getting ready. No rush, just having a show on in the background while picking out an outfit, doing my hair, applying makeup, etc.

    God, I love being a girl and doing girly stuff, it's awesome

  16. I really want to get back into this place but I feel like I would have to dive into deep waters again.

    And I'm afraid of that.

      I might! I just hopped myself onto my friend's gamemaking bandwagon, and will be working on animation for the game!

      It's a fantastic game produced for the same game design module I did, and two of the members from that team decided to bring it further. They have a really beautiful trailer, but the game could benefit from some animation!

      Working on games would be awesome! That's very cool. Let me see stuff once you do it because it will be unfair if I do not get to see stuff lol

      Hahaha of course!!

  17. I am baffled at how you can go from being so busy to not busy at all. I mean of course my toddler keeps me on my toes but It is nothing compared to work, school and my child. Now that I do not work and no longer go back to school so what now?

    1. princeben07


      Post up? lol. Oh, got some news for you as well. The Pendragon Society is watching our rp very carefully. The waiting list for the Pendragon Society is ten YEARS.

      I have no idea what that means and post up? I am waiting on your post Ben! Haha Last I hear is that I am going to be kid napped and then you never posted.

  18. Bright star would I were steadfast as thou art--

    Not in lone splendor hung aloft the night

    And watching, with eternal lids apart,

    Like nature's patient, sleepless Eremite,

    The moving waters of their priestlike task

    Of pure ablution round earth's human shores,

    Or gazing in the new soft-fallen mask,

    Of snow upon the mountains and the moors--

    No--yet still steadfast, still unchangeable,

    Pillow'd upon my fair loves ripening breast,

    To feel forever its fall and swell,

    Awake forever in a sweet unrest,

    Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,

    And so live ever--or else swoon to death.
