Be Lovely to Each Other
At this moment, Anim8or 1.0 is coming out and Steve put up a contest for the new splash screen. This is an HD render of my entree! Anim8or has always had 2 signature characters, Robin and Shark, so I took the liberty of making my own interpretation of the characters and making a composition of them being cute together.

Everything was modeled and rendered in Anim8or itself. Anim8or is hands down my favorite program ever.

I was five when I fist played video games. That was when I knew for certain that I wanted to become a video game designer. I have working hard to make that dream come true ever since.

I believe it is the right of us all to bring our ambitions to life.
My latest work was a prototype 4 panel. I intend to have a huge packet of unwritten comic 4 panels. The Idea of this packet is to help inspire people to try their hand at comic book writing. I managed to get quite a few people to leave comments on that image, but the results I got from the comments were.... interesting to put it lightly:

Clearly it wasn't designed to be the most beautiful or well crafted works of art: The number one suggestion people made was to trade out the current gradient shading style with a solid cel-shading style. I find that the practice of cel-shading is a worthy investment for creative illustration. It makes sense.

But here was the part that shocked me, despite how the 4-panel was being sooo inviting to people to comment in their own text as a little game, NOBODY who gave a friendly suggestion on how to improve played the game until I had asked them to play. Some of them even remarked that they had never even tried to write for a comic.

And that's what shocked me, how is it that there are so many expert amateur manga artists here on DA but none of them ever went into it with the thought to try writing for one? It's fascinating really.

None the less, this only inspired me to make this unwritten 4-panel game into a much bigger project, as it seems to be proving my point.

Comic books are not just about illustration, it's a balance between the consistency of the visual aesthetic and the presentation of the literature.

I'm thinking that many of these nice people to leave comments on my image may simply be very intimidated by the very idea of writing for a comic under the impression that it would necessitate long narrative and continuous story, as would be done in a super hero comic book volume or manga.

I know that for me, when I was little, drawing manga seemed very intimating because there is always that lingering fear when seeing a wonderfully detailed in work that you as a perfectionist will never be able to emulate that ability. But maybe that's exactly why I decided to not reflect such an awe inspiring aesthetic for my 4 panel (to be honest, one of the inspirations for the mode of coloring here was the simple Calvin and Hobbes comics).

Just to clear up any misunderstandings, I am grateful for all the suggestions that those very talented individuals granted me, they are awesome, and there is nothing wrong with their point of views, especially after finding out that they maximize their visual aesthetic because for them that is the penultimate part of their display.

Hi I played your games Buttle Life 2010 in steam 

and the music is so good :D (Big Grin)

Oh glad you like the game and music. It's a style of music that sadly doesn't get as much appreciation as I think it should. Hopefully the next Bullet Life game will be able to capture what the first one did but do it all a lot better and more fleshed out!
