Finished my dissertation and now looking to be hired for work in animation, illustration or character/creature design. Hiive is a careers website for creative people. If anyone wants to follow me, here's a link to my profile!

I’m putting the call out for anyone who has worked professionally in the field of character design OR anyone who has used Tilt Brush or other Virtual Reality art software to create pieces of art before.

I am currently writing my masters dissertation on “The Use of Virtual Reality Tools in Character Design” and I therefore need to ask a small group of people a few questions regarding this subject in order to gather more information. This shouldn’t take up too much of your time and it will be a loose and informal discussion.

I am asking specifically for professional character designers due to their experience in the field of their work as well as knowledge of the character design pipeline. It doesn’t matter what kind of profession you work in, (I.e., games, cartoons, film, etc…) as long as you have worked professionally.

However, any Tilt Brush users can respond if they feel they are experienced enough with the software to have a discussion about it. It would especially be useful if you are a character designer who also uses Tilt Brush to help design characters.

Please also give examples of any work you have done as this will help steer the discussion in the right direction.

The discussion will be electronically written and may take place on whichever platform you feel most comfortable, (skype, email or even here on Newgrounds via private message). However, you will be required to sign a consent form and send me a photocopy of your signed consent form for me to include in my dissertation appendix. This is to protect all of the information you give me.

Please respond if you are interested or share this with someone you know who might be interested.

THE DEADLINE FOR RESPONDING TO THIS IS THE 12th SEPTEMBER! I cannot take on any more responses after this time due to how close this project is to the deadline.

 

If you would like any more information, please don’t hesitate to ask.

 

Thank you. 



Hello everyone! So I have a few announcements to make. Firstly, I have revived my YouTube account and added some new work, which is a 3D model of one of my characters. I'll post a link to the turntable below.

Secondly, I am now a member of the very swish ArtStation website. I absolutely love its layout!

Calling all voice actors!

2016-04-30 16:33:24 by Kayas-Kosmos

Hello everyone! 

I've run into somewhat of a conundrum with a recent project as I've been having a problem sourcing voice actors for my latest animation. Therefore, I am putting out the call for anyone interested in supplying their voice. 

The animation is a pilot episode for a children's cartoon as well as my university graduation film. The short is 5 and a half minutes long and there aren't a great deal of spoken lines. 

 

The characters present in the animation are;

~ A green, ugly and herp-derp princess with prehensile nostrils. (Female).

~ A small, fat bunny baker. (Female).

~ A cliched German scientist. (Male).

~ A melodramatic opera villain (Male).

~ A 'Team America' style Captain of the flying patrol (Male).

 

While these roles may require specific voice talents, there is also a scene where a crowd shouts the words "The mecha hyperspace opera dragon!" So anyone is welcome to record themselves shouting this. Though please record this on a good-quality microphone as this needs to be to a professional standard. 

If anyone is interested in taking on one of these roles, please send me a private message, preferably containing some examples of your voice acting work (if you have any) so I can get a better idea of what work you've done.

For those interested, I can provide a script as well as the animatic containing the base voices to get a gist of what kind of mood I am going for in each scene (though you don't have to stick to the exact tone and pacing if you feel it doesn't work). Once you've recieved these, it would be really helpful if you could please send along some line-reads so I can direct the voice better. 

Unfortunately, the university has disallowed students from paying voice actors, so all I can really offer is a voice acting credit at the end of the animation and perhaps a free art commission to compensate. On top of this, the hand-in deadline is the 17th May (unless I can get an extension) and I will need the voices sooner than that to animate over them. I realise that this is a little tight, so I'll understand if some of you are not up to the challenge. 

On the plus side, this will give you the oppertunity to go wild with your voice and demonstrate your talents (as well as get some free art from me). 

 

Thanks for reading, and I am excited to hear from you all!

It's been a while.

I can't believe that I haven't posted an update in so long! Having said that, I have had quite a lot on my plate lately, including an anatomy course to finish. However, I am so glad that my 'Love The Dogs' video has had such a huge and positive response. Over 10,000 views on Youtube now and more than that here on NG. Thank you everyone who has liked and supported it!

Hope everyone's having a good week :) 


Holy maccie-Ds!

I almost forgot that I had a newgrounds account! I need to start updating this place more, but at present, I don't have many animations to put on here other than scraps. Perhaps I shall update it later in the holiday :D Hope everyone's looking forward to a great christmas!
