Welcome to Animation Procreation!
Before we continue this tour, let me just say one thing:
This has nothing to do with hentai, yaoi, or anything of the sorts.
Procreation is simply symbolic of the process of how this group will
work together in order to create something truly beautiful,
even if it is a little rough around the edges....
Now let the tour commence!
- All YCM rules apply. I have a link going to them, so no excuse of not knowing them..
- Do not flame or be disrespectful towards your fellow member because of their creative work and/or opinions.
- Remember, real criticism includes both bad AND good pointers. Tips are a bonus as well.
- No one word/picture/emoticon/vid posts. If you post up something of your creative work, give some context to go with it.
- The host has the final say within the group while (club) mods have almost final say.
- And please, for the love of making it easier for me and to save space for the front page, keep your "I want to be a member" form simple.. Look at mine (Aisu) for what I mean.
That's all for now.
Now with that out of the way, we can get into the real meal of this group;
It's members and group project(s)!
Below are the list of members and what they do;
the current group project(s);
forms for joining, looking for help, etc;
ideas (explained more in the form section);
and finally.. the help wanted ads!
Skill(s): Animation. Character concept. Voice acting. Writing.
Reason(s) for joining: I'm here cause I'm the freaking host! Duh. Lol.
Mako109 (aka Mako † CRUX)
Skill(s): Well, I'm a writer. I could probably edit very well. I guess those would count under Story Board. I also can voice act, if to a minor degree.
Reason(s) for joining: Well, for one thing, if I ever DO manage to release something I want animated, I'd have a place to go. Furthermore, clubs are cool, I'd like voice acting and writing tips, and who knows? Maybe I'll get into the whole "animating" thing.
Skill(s): Voice acting
Reason(s) for joining: Because I love voice acting and have wanted to animate custom openings for my RP's since I started rping... and this seems awesome!! :D
Skill(s): Voice Acting (Amateur) and I do a bit of Writing here and there.
Reason(s) for joining: Want to get working with other types of animation to voice act in, other than normal fandubs. Plus I wanna help people out! ^^
Skill(s): I am a decent script-writer, and as such, I can be of use in the story board department. I have also learnt how to use Adobe Flash CS4 through a book, and as such can operate as an amateur(-ish) animator if need be. Unfortunately, I don't have Flash on my computer any more, although I intend to buy it legitimately this time, and once I do, I will be glad to showcase some of the basic animations that I can do.
Reason(s) for joining: Well... I always wondered what it would be like to see a Live Action Role-Play of sorts, even if it were to be as snippets at a time. I personally think that, as long as they're done well, these snippets of Live Action Role-Play have the potential to draw role players into a particular franchise that they have never really been familiar with, and can perhaps even add new role players into YCM as a whole, and encourage role players to finish their role play with sparks of imagination. I'm also expecting this experience to help me become a better Flash animator in general, which is something I wanted to work on for a while now. Though I must admit that licensing problems have put me off trying to learn any further :/
Skill(s): Any sort of writing, storyboarding and stuff like that... I guess. I am a decent artist, and I suppose I can do concept as well. I have never seriously animated anything, though I know how to use Adobe Flash, not including the Actionscript part (well, I can do basic buttons), however, I do not have the program.
Reason(s) for joining: For fun, I guess. I want to draw, I want to try stuff and I want to be in a club :3
Cinnamon Star (Be nice to her, she's a site mod! OwO; )
Skill(s): Character concept, proof reading. I think I'll be mostly here to provide ideas and give input to what people are working on. I enjoy creating things and am a seamstress in training, so I could probably help out in the concept department. Used to write a bit as well, so proof-reading is fine to me. Never done voice-acting, but I would really be interested into trying it.
perhaps for minor roles though
Reason(s) for joining:This just sounds really good. Looking forward to what people come up with and working together on things.
Hayate Ayasaki~ (Aka Fluttershy and Darklink. Some samples located on post #34)
Skill(s): I've been voice acting for a while, though in nothing major. I DO have more experience writing however. And I can draw pretty okay, so I'd also be able to make storyboards I guess, though I never really tried. I DID have a stick figure comic called Buggasault back in 6th through 10th grade though.
Reason(s) for joining: Cuz I liek what it's about ;D
Lujan Solo (Some samples on post #85)
Skill(s): Character concept, 3D modeling, 3D rendering, a bit of voice acting
Reason(s) for joining: I've been wanting to get back into animation, but unfortunately I'm not that good at animating, just rendering still images. Still, if necessary, I can render some pretty good images.
Skill(s): Writer, plot development, character development, writing/story critiques, proofreader, sometimes I'll draw something, idea bouncer.
Reason(s) for joining: I saw the name and thought this was a hentai club. I'm happily mistaken.
Skill(s): Well, the main thing I want to do is become a Graphic Designer, although I've always wanted to do some animation. I do sometimes do a bit of writing.
Reason(s) for joining: To learn a thing or two about animation, get better at a few things and help people out. :3
Skill(s): Writer (Both Script & Story writing), Plot & Character development, writing/story critiques, Proofreader, in-depth researcher, potential voice-actor
Reason(s) for joining: Because Aisu (<3), Chaos, Opal, Agro, Smear, & DL are here, so this club has a lot of the people I like around here. Also, I guess I could make some contributions; I do want to get more involved in clubs.
Skill(s): I voice act, and go over character development.
Reason(s) for joining: This looks fun as all hell.
Yan-Tsundere Barrel (formally known as Thar.)
Skill(s): Voice acting: I have a headset and a hobby of talking to myself in several different accents. I'm also fairly decent at sound effects. Writer: I'm trying to get into the habit of writing more often, but that's only with the novel format. As far as scripts, dialogues and screen-plays are fun to put together. Proof-reader: Comes with the Grammar Nazi complex, and having taken a developmental writing course prior and an expository writing course currently, I can see if this trait can come to use. Character concept: I love coming up with new characters, albeit filling out an entire application is an exception.
Reason(s) for joining: Mostly for the voice acting. I can do all the other stuff listed, but only on free days where I'm not doing much anything else.
I am not I am Who I Am! (formerly 'Iamwhoiam')
Skill(s): I draw some manga scripts when I'm bored or inspired so I think I can be a great help in some storyboards. I can draw well and I write some stories and stuffs. I'd never tried voice-acting so maybe you can help me.
Reason(s) for joining: It's fun here and all of you are talented so I want to share my talents too :D
Skill(s): To put it simply, I excel in novel writing along with voice acting (However, I've never been apart of anything that involves voice acting, so anything that interests me here I'll gladly join). I like writing as I can easily be in the moment, though that's harder to say with voice acting. But, hey, it doesn't hurt to try, right? ;)
Reason(s) for joining: I like to be able to do more than just write novels. I'd like to be able to be apart of projects involving voice acting so my voice could be heard by all. That, and I have a few things I intend to mention in the future. So, look out for any ideas I spring out. You'll never know when they'll appear.
[center][b]I Wanna Be a Member![/b][/center] [b]Username[/b]: [b]What do you do?[/b]: (this is where you put down what you have skills in; example: character concept, proof-reader (for like scripts, dialog, etc.), story boarding, etc. If you're not sure if you can put something down put it down anyways and I'll let ya know. If you're just here to be here and help out with idea development, etc, you don't have to fill this out.) [b]Why do you want to join in?[/b]: (This is option if you have 'what do you do' filled. This is needed, however, if you don't have it filled out.)
[center][b]Looking for Help and Volunteers![/b][/center] [b]What do you need help with?[/b]: (Do you need help figuring something out? Is it for a project? Something personal? Etc. Just give an idea on what ya need help on.) [b]What kind of volunteers do you need and how many of each?[/b]: (This field is option. Mostly used for if your making a animation or something and need voice actors, story boarders, etc.) [b]Extra Info[/b]: (Optional as well. Its for letting the volunteers/helpers know how to contact you, send you demos or whatever. Also for putting down other info you think should be known that you haven't said yet.)
[center][b]Club Project Nomination[/b][/center] [b]What is the name of the project?[/b]: [b]What is it about?[/b]: (Give us at least 4 lines on what it's about, if you can.) [b]Do you need any developers to help to finalize the plot/characters/etc?[/b]: (This is here because without things being pretty much finalized, the project has no where to go.)
[center][b]A Random Challenger Appears![/b][/center] [b]What the RP/Fanfic's name?[/b]: [b]Link to said RP/Fanfic[/b]: [b]Tell us a little bit of the event/moment you want animated[/b]: (A few lines would be nice.) [b]What post/chapter does said event/moment does it start on?[/b]: (For large chapters, tell us how many paragraphs down it starts.) [b]Which post/chapter does it end?[/b]: (For large chapters, tell us how many paragraphs down it finishes. For example, lets say it starts on paragraph 3 and ends on paragraph 6, you would put down 6 for this field.) [b]Why do you want to see this turned into an animation?[/b]: (This is optional, but it'd be nice to know why the moment/event stuck out so much to you that you would want to see it animated.)
Now before I move finish off with the tutorial of the week,
I want to let everyone who is reading this know one thing:
within the form spoiler, there is a form called "Ideas."
With this form, you are allowed to post up moments from an RP/Fanfic
ON THIS SITE
that you would like to see animated.
It being animated is NOT guaranteed due to many factors.
This will, however, give members inspiration and practice.
So no mater how short or long the moment,
any and all ideas are greatly appreciated!
Now lets get out there and create something wonderful!
