That's right! Goth Lyfe T-Shirts are now on sale! Check them out at: http://www.districtlines.
I just wanted to make an animated short to let everyone know about the new merchandise. In case you're wondering, the new episode is almost completed and should be out pretty soon. Thanks for watching!
Not bad ^^
the arts are good but you need plenty of work with it, htough.
But nice storys in this series!
Nevermind the motion tweening, artwork or anything visual. My immediate biggest gripe is the sound. The dialog is really quite, but I also noticed how no matter how low you keep your voice, that pops continually occur in the audio.
That tells me two things:
1; you have your face up to the microphone and you cant help but breathe into it, thus causing the pops and explaining why you're talking in such a low volume of voice.
2; You don't have a pop filter that would otherwise prevent wind from blowing into your mic and causing the pops.
My absolute best recommendation for a microphone is that you get a Gigaware® USB Stereo Headset with Microphone from Radioshack. They currently cost 30.00 dollars.
Subtitles would be nice too.
Also another thing I noticed, you're using Audacity to record your lines. Stop using Audacity. Audacity has horrible encoding that echoes the dialog on a lower volume with bizarre sound filters. It's difficult to explain what it does.
It is by far the most irritating recording program ever made and should never be used. The encoding can actually corrupt all your audio files; you need to uninstall it from your computer before it does that.
Since you're using Audacity, that also tells me that you're using a Windows interface and that you don't know how to use Windows Movie Maker, which doesn't leave that awful encoding filter that replicates the dialog in soft alien speak.
How you access the recording program in Windows Movie Maker is that you find a small microphone icon at the lower left of the screen just above the storyboard/timeline panel. It should display a volume meter with recording options.
I'd also recommend switching the settings from Storyboard to Timeline, although that should happen automatically when you start recording.
I would also very much recommend editing your dialog in WMM, because Audacity can still wreak your shit if you import it. If you need to edit your audio files on a larger scale, there's a table of zoom options next to the microphone icon that will let you adjust the scale you're working on.
Now I'm onto the visuals. Anyone who's ever read my review on Titanomachina knows how I feel about motion tweening. Also this is a comedy so it's hardly relevent, seeing as how this isn't trying to be a work of art.
I do however recommend that since you've decided to use shading, which is typically a big no, no among motion tweeners, that you also use reflection shading [reflections of the light source, as in, brighter than the base color] in addition to your shadow shading.
I like the premise of the series but it could use some drastice improvements. I remember seeing a double feature of Gothe Lyfe 3 years ago and I mildly enjoy it. I think you should concentrate on more of what Goth's are about rather than them acting like regular people, because honestly I can see just about anybody doing what these do.
Blue Pencilmate meets Red Pencilmate, but things don't go so well...
