i was trying to make a thing

I hate this phrase..

“But you promised…”

This has to be my most hated phrase ever as of late next to ‘get over it already’.

Guys, please understand that promises can be broken for a variety of reasons. I mean, seriously, do I have to list the reasons why they can be or can some people not see past their own nose as to what’s going on in someone else’s world?

Unless you pay for something, nobody is obligated to fulfill a promise.

I’ve made some promises to people that I could do a RP for them, and when I tell them ‘no, I can’t anymore’, they still hound me about it keeping that phrase above my head like it’ll randomly change my mind.

People can and will change their minds about stuff all the time for (again) a variety of reasons. Also, guess what? People are actually not obligated to give you a reason as to why they cannot fulfill the promises they made.

Do understand that for me, personally, I try with all my heart and soul to fulfill every promise I make to people, but sometimes I just cannot give it all for everyone for personal reasons. There is no reason that people should hold that above my head. Understand that I am human, and I make mistakes when I don’t mean to and I make promises I cannot keep.

There is no binding contract with these words of ‘I promise’, and people need to understand this and just let it go.

Stuff piles up on my plate at a rapid speed, and I am doing everything I can to write and draw for myself and for others to keep them happy and content. However, everything sent my way, I am not obligated to do or respond to, but I will do my best. Just do not guilt me about it…ever!

As a gentle reminder: I think of you guys sometimes more than I do myself. Seeing others happy makes me happy, but again…there’s only so much of me I can push around the table.

Hi! I have a question I've been dying to ask you for a while now. I've been seeing all of these animatics on YouTube, and I've been wanting to make my own so badly. However, I don't know what programs to use, or how to fool around with them to get the frames right. I was wondering since you are so talented in digital art and animation, if you could maybe upload a tutorial to your YouTube account, or maybe just on tumblr to help ppl like me? It would help more than u can believe! Tysm!!!

First of all you don’t need a particolar program to do animatics, I use manga studio/clip studio paint to make the drawings and then sony vegas to put it all toghether with the music but heck you can do it even with paint and movie maker, it’s not the tool that make the artist.

There’s not really a tutorial I can do because it’s just animation with less frames and colors. When it comes to animatic, since you’re limited by less frames everything that count is the fluidity and how compatibles your drawings are with the music. If you have a loud bang and your character is falling down you want the momentum of the fall (the moment they hit the ground) timed perfectly with the loud bang in your music. It’s all about having a good sense of time and knowing how to use the music at your advantage. I’ve seen so many animatics that compleately ignored the music and just limited the characters opening they mouths when talking and that would be ok for a simple video but you need to make a music video. The video has to follow the music.

Taking as example my animatics you got helpless, story of tonight rep. and congratulation. they are respectively a upbeat song, a very goofy and comic song and a more drammatic/serious one. You have to learn how to time your frame accordingly to the kind of music you’re animating. For the upbeat music everything is constantily moving, for the goofy music times are comedic times focussed on the silly movments of the characters and the drammatic one needs drammatic camera movments and right timing for the rack up of a lot of tension and then at the right time release that tension.

Movment is extremely important, a blink of a eye, a boucy hair or dress, a little squatch/strech inbetween frames can make a huge difference. I suggest you watch this and if you want also the rest of the videos I consider them the bible of animation.

There’s so much things I could talk about but everything is just shades and shades of you needing to speriment with it but all the important things are 1 follow the beats and the song 2 try to make the characters match their voices feelings 3 add movments whenever you can

Just try to study the animatic you like more, pause them frame by frame if you need it, figure out what they did and how you can do it too

kinda about that question about how long ago did someone last told keith they loved him

lance confesses kinda in a nonchalant way (keith thought it was platonic lol)

later keith tells everyone else he loves them and they say they love him back and lance is in the background seething silently in rage and jealousy (”we had a bonding moment! you caressed my face!!!”)

I’ve been giving it a lot of thought and I have realized that you are my Kryptonite. Me? Oh, uh… No, I mean, my feelings for you. I’ve never felt like this about anyone in my life… I didn’t know that there were this many feelings to even be had.
