this is great i wish i could be this good at drawing
First of all, not bad.
Okay, there's the one thing... audio. Doesn't much matter who takes charge of it, because it is what it is. On this, I hope you try digging into "Audacity". If you have it, please get back to the site and read up on it. (I have a crap PC at the moment, and I've had no trouble using the help function for that.
In short, you suffer from "clipping". In Audacity, when you open and edit sound files, you should see a series of "wavy lines" in each track or "channel", when the lines reach amplitudes that completely fill the track's grey area, the software fails to handle it and you get that weird skitchy crackly stuff. By tweaking settings like "mic sensitivity" or the input or output "gain" controls, you decrease the volume and elliminate that.
Your voice tracks also tend to sound a little like your in a big acoustic tunnel, which can (quite cheaply) be remedied by building a couple free standing partitions around your chosen "recording booth" out of things like cardboard (on the very cheap) or just using any furnishing to supply a surface that acoustically decreases the room. There are other remedies, but the homebuilt partitions are my favorite... cheap.
There's also the chance of explosive consonants, when "p" or "t" sounds come across like you're spitting on the mic. The simple thing here is to put a thin material between your mouth and the mic. It can be as simple as a mason jar lid wrapped in a sock (to prevent ruining a good pair of socks for no more than this)... Or I have gotten by with a small piece of foam padding with a slit cut into it and wrapped over the microphone. It serves as the "condenser" which on older school mic's you'd see on TV to prevent wind noises and "explosive consonants" or other annoying sounds. If you've ever seen a "boom microphone", it's just constructing that big fuzzy thing they usually wrap the actual microphone with.
On the importance of audio tracks in your work, you might find some interesting thought by checking out "cinefix" commentaries on YT, just in case you haven't yet.
Finally, I think you are improving. There's always ways to go and things to work on, but mostly it's just up to you (the artist) to cultivate your style. I certainly hope this helps you along the way on the technical side of things. Now, breathe, relax, and keep on keeping on. Art (after all) is what artists are known for.
HOLY SHIT. this is some great stuff man. thanks, currently i use garageband because it came with my computer but I will definitely test out audacity to improve audio. thanks for this man.
Animation is alright, however there is alot of peaking and the actual voice acting is why i give a low rating. try standing away a little farther from the microphone or use a lower gain and keep that distance, but overall not bad for the animation and comedy was good
Hey man take your cruelty out on bung he did the Vc. Just kidding, I'm glad you liked it.
Blue Pencilmate meets Red Pencilmate, but things don't go so well...
