best at emails

GUYS PLEASE

I’ve just got the 10th message this month asking me how to watch Book of the Atlantic online :/

You can’t watch it online because BotA is a movie and it’s still running in cinemas in Japan.

The release date for the DVD/BDs hasn’t been announced yet, so I don’t know when you’ll be able to watch it.

Please ask Funimation or Crunchyroll or whoever is in charge of the official Kuroshitsuji anime in the US when they’ll release the English dub/sub version.

Donald Trump’s presidency has been good for business, with a soaring stock market, a freeze on new regulations and an Oval Office that appears to have an open door for CEOs. But Trump has been especially good news for the industries in which he has a personal interest: real estate, construction, entertainment, hospitality, gambling and, of course, golf.

Yesterday was my birthday, and I received the best surprise in my email: the picture I had commissioned from the wonderful @taratjah of my May Hawke and Anders!
I couldn’t be any happier with it, it turned out perfectly. From the endearing way they’re looking at each other, to how she nailed my Hawke’s look, I’m so grateful of the wonderful job Tara did. Thank you so much and I’m excited to be able to work with you again! Everyone go and commission her, her art is amazing and she’s a pleasure to work with! (Hope the quality is okay this is being uploaded through my phone :P)

HOW TO ASK FOR COLLABS

So I felt the need to make this post because I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking me for collabs but there are a lot of things that are a bit off in these emails so I wanted to clarify for yall how to ask someone for a collab.

1. BE PROFESSIONAL. NUMBER ONE RULE.

Write these emails like you’re writing a school email. I’m not super picky about formatting or “dear star” at the top or something, but you can’t send me an email that just says “u want to collab? I need voice for fandub” Or something like that. 100% of the time if you send me an email like this, I will not reply. I simply dont have time to email back and have an email chain figuring out what you mean. Try to use complete sentences, and spell words correctly. Also stay away from “u” and stuff like that, because it doesn’t look professional at all.

2. INCLUDE INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROJECT

This is the biggest one I have an issue with. If you don’t have a previous channel or any other previous work, that’s completely fine. I am perfectly open to working with people who haven’t done anything online before. However, you need to show me something. A preview, a sample of the voice acting, a demo of the game, something like that. Also, include information about what you precisely would need from me. “I would like you to voice this character, in this particular voice, and here is a sample of the lines I would need.” is a good example. If you’re not set on the lines or what kind of voice you need that’s fine, I dont need something really specific, just a rough estimate or more information about the project. 

3. IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO JOIN OUR CHANNEL AS A POSSIBLE VOICE ACTOR, SEND A DEMO REEL. IF YOU DO NOT INCLUDE A DEMO REEL IN THE ORIGINAL EMAIL, I WILL NOT RESPOND BECAUSE I SIMPLY DO NOT HAVE TIME. 

I get about 4-5 emails daily asking if someone could join the channel as a possible voice actor. I’m completely open to adding people as possible voice actors, I’ve done it many times before, but you NEED to send me a demo reel if you’re looking to join or have an established channel or work that I can check out. It’s as simple as that. Remember, your voice is your trade. You need to showcase your trade. 

4. DO NOT BE SELF-DEPRECATING IN THESE EMAILS. 

Nothing makes me want to delete an email more than reading the words: Here’s my demo reel, it’s so bad don’t look at it. I’m not saying you should send me an email saying “I AM THE BEST VOICE ACTOR IN THE WORLD HIRE ME”, but try to remember that when you’re sending me a demo reel or something like that you’re sending me an audition. If you walked into any audition and told the director not to listen to you, they would send you out of the room. I’m going to do the same. You’re an actor, you’re selling yourself. A better way to word it if you’re not sure about your audition is to say: “I’m still working on it, could I get some constructive feedback?” That right there is WAY better than “this is so bad.” I know this is a weird thing to be picky about, but I get a lot of these types of emails and it weighs on me. 

5. DONT SEND ME “CAN YOU CRITIQUE MY UNDERTALE AU?” just dont do it. I’d love to check out a comic or something, but I know nothing about creating AUs.  


AND THATS IT! I know I was a little strict in this post, don’t let that stop you from sending me an email! I love what I do and I love meeting new people through the internet, I just felt the need to share with you guys the best way to send emails because then you have a better chance of getting in contact with me! Plus this is helpful for people who don’t really know how to send these types of emails, and don’t beat yourself up if you didn’t know. 
Also just because why not, my email is starbotcentral@gmail.com. 

happy birthday to my fellow shipper, high-level dressage geek, founder of the yoi eq au, medieval horse lover and the best art fam i could wish for!

@havenesc, here’s your beautiful OC Bamardyn! <:

As someone who adores Shakespeare, Still Star-Crossed is EVERYTHING I ever wanted in a show. I could not give less of a FUCK about this new Will TV series bullshit, because I can’t stand bullshit that’s based in reality ….

… but SSC?????? It’s based on a 400 year old play - GO NUTS!!!! Have a diverse cast, outrageous, gorgeous costumes and settings, a convoluted storyline, get trope-y as hell because THAT’S WHAT THE BARD WOULD’VE WANTED. ROMACE. DEATH. MYSTERY. BETRAYAL. SEDUCTION. THE GREATEST LOVE STORY EVER TOLD.

AND NOW YOU TELL ME THAT THIS GEM IS CANCELLED???

Just got the best email from my brother:

“Beyond the Wall” was the first episode where the whole “teleportation” thing really became a distraction for me. In other episodes I’ve been able to ignore it with rationales like, “oh, we don’t know for sure how much time elapsed between such-and-such”, etc. But last night, COME ON. We know that Jon and his merry men were stuck there for only, what, a single night? And we also know from that damn map in the show’s opening that Dragonstone is pretty close to King’s Landing, which has always been established as being in the southern part of Westeros. So we’re supposed to believe that in the span of maybe 8 hours, a single raven flew across an entire CONTINENT, and then Dany flew back north at the same breakneck pace?? I mean, it takes one of our airplanes like 5 hours to fly across the United States, and that’s going 500 mph. I’m sure dragons can fly pretty fast, but it’s not like Dany is sitting inside a pressurized airplane cabin when she’s riding one, so they can’t be going nearly as fast as a plane.

There are tears of joy in my eyes.

“So how’s the fic writing going?”

Hey all! I’ve decided to open up commissions for the summer! 

If anyone is confused by the example, there’s basically two parts:

    1. Pick a style/level of skill (sketch, lines, etc.) 

    2. Pick the amount of the character you want presented (bust, waist up, etc.)

And that’s it!

If you want to add another character, it’s an additional $10, a sketchy/messy background is an additional $10, and a fully detailed background is an extra $20. 

I will draw:

Gore, NSFW (must be 18+ in order to get a NSFW commission!), furry/anthro, etc.

I will NOT draw:

Noncon/rape, dubcon, pedophilia/children in sexual situations, vore.

If you’re unsure of what qualifies as such, check in with me beforehand to make sure I’m comfortable with it.

Please email me at hentscheleb@gmail.com if you’re interested and/or have comments, questions, or concerns! 

You can reach me via tumblr, but email is best! Please label all emails as “commission” or something indicating you want a commission.

Also, if you’re ordering a commission, give me a due date, provide plenty of details, and please pay up front! I won’t start the commission until payment is sent. 

I accept payment via Googlewallet, PayPal, and Venmo!

Thanks all! :)
