Yeah! So, I think this my last video for a while. I kind of just wanted to get a few interesting VIDS floating around webspace for whatever reason. I actually wanted to do some kind of audio thing with me talking about the specific video in regards to design, but like, my mic is messed up for some reason and I just have 0 energies(noEtankleftsry).
Yeah, the scene took like, idk, 4 or 5 days off and on. It is a long process because you need to design things and have them fit correctly, I am specifically talking about the resources. I wrote about the king in an earlier post, but, I wanted to show this to see how creative you can be when you have and create certain characters. I did not write anything first, it was purely design, I wrote everything last, actually. I think I was watching a Stan Lee biography and I guess what they did was give artists some vague idea, they would draw the content and they would write stuff in it last.
I always like the fact that there is a lot of things going on. When you have a king who is just this powerful entity who can do whatever he wants, it sort of writes itself. Like, you just imagine this royal slob laying on a bed while babes are fanning him. And basically that is what I wrote, he is just, Donald Trump except more of a dbag. When you write stuff like this and have it play out visually, it’s less about the writing and more about the things around the character and what he interacts with. Like, he has tables of oil, he has babes in cages, etc and stuff like that makes it so you can get an understanding of his personality without having to pile on tons of writing.
Visually, a problem I try to balance is what is too much, and what is too less. Um, like the scene in the above video if pretty minimum in my opinion. Like, I wanted to added disco balls, lights flashing, drapes of his kings image behind him and the list can go on forever. I can’t really do everything because it is simply not viable in terms of time and technical limitations.
What is funny is, during the constructing process I am almost always unsure of how it will come out, the art pieces feel lacking or the pixels aren’t up to my standards. I had drawn the king and colored him earlier and I was like “oh this is going to look very awful” but I inserted him in and I was pretty happy with how it turned out. So the scene ends up being kind of charming at the end of it all. When I create stuff like this and present it to, like the internet, I want it to have a certain standard when people happen to stumble on it, because it’s more about me putting content out there that is decent, and something that took a lot of time, because it reflects off me. If I had a pong game floating around I would feel really embarrassed personally because I feel like as a creative human we are capable of many things.
My friend suggested to add a lot of really vague and pointless tags and to start using the “upload photo” option on Tumblr to get the buzz going. But like, idk, these functions are kind of awful and they aren’t even relevant (tagssuckyo) and I like to have my own images in a specific place not some uploader I can’t have access to. Whatever ~Squall
I wanted to talk about so much stuff, but I have just been so tired lately. I do not have the energy…
Idk, I am trying to rework my trailer and kind of gearing up to try and generate buzz for it. I have a few exciting things to talk about later if it my plans go accordingly..but dat neva happens.
