Audio Track

Credits for Chapter 6 - Page 2

Soul Voices, in order: Zelahn, Sol, Sol, Zelahn, Zelahn, Sol (x5)

Helen: Megami33

Sypher: Sol

Lone: Reputator


It's mostly my fault that this page is a bit crowded. I'm still trying to find the happy medium with content.

I had kind of meant for the last panel to be more dramatic, but... instead you get comic relief, in a classic "We're blasting off again!" *twinkle*. Which works too, I suppose.

It's hard to believe, but about less than two weeks ago at the time of writing, I thought for sure I'd have to do the voice of Lone. Lone is pretty complex and no one had really been able to capture his emotion properly. But, someone's outdone me for Lone. Great work, Reputator!

I was trying to think of a way to do it dramatically, really. Pondered it for a while, but nothing really did it justice... So I scrapped the whole idea and went with the Team Rocket blastoff track, which I guess works fine.

This page WAS crowded. I originally thought about splitting it up into 2 pages, but having a whole black page with just Helen felt a bit like cheating... Really though, the pacing would have been better that way, probably.

I was messing around with the faces, and especially the mouth drawings. Next page too. It's more comical, but I don't think I'm going to keep it up, it doesn't capture TLS the way I'd like it to.

Yeah, originally I DID have it as just Helen and the black page with the Souls' voices, but I thought it could be merged. I probably shouldn't have merged it though.

Well, at the same time... a one black page just for Helen IS a bit much... it's just that the flow is a bit weird otherwise...

It's finally done! I finally finished today's audio track. See it above in my initial post.

Ah, finally the first audio sample. A nice little teaser for what's to come. ;) I see you used the first take, Sol.

Also, you thinking about adding some background music in future tracks?

Reply K.K., 05 Feb 2008

Nice, Reputator. You sound sorta like Ichigo from Bleach.

Reply Sol, 05 Feb 2008

Background music? Hmmm... I hadn't really thought about it.

The Tracks are too short, I think. But maybe if at the end of the Chapter, I created one massive one with all them combined, then maybe I could add something. But we'll see.

Thanks man. I hope the fans find that it at least somewhat matches what they imagined.

Anyway, not to toot my own horn or anything, but I had to share this because I never did it before and I'm pretty proud of the results. I did a remix to illustrate what I was talking about with the background music and everything. Hope you guys approve.

I thought the music suited the dream sequence, but it probably should have stopped when he woke up. But thanks, Rep, it sounded great.

Wow! That was a lot better than I thought it would sound like. Keep it up! :)

Whoa. Q_Q'l|l' That soundtrack gave me chills. =_=;;;

Reply Sol, 06 Feb 2008

Haha, is that a good thing or a bad thing? Although I'm assuming you're talking about the Souls, in which case it's supposed to. Kind of gives you a sense of what Lone has had to go through.

DD: Voice acting! Daw, man. I wish I had found this comic sooner. TT_TT I would've loved to do a voice...

Reply Sol, 17 Feb 2008

It's not too late. More roles will be available later. I only cast the roles for Chapter 6 so far, and there's plenty of new characters coming.

Reply tezzle, 27 Feb 2008

=D Awesome. Just let me know when you're casting again.
