I need Voice Acting practice - help me out?
Post By Li-Bai. 30/04/09, 01:33 am

I'm currently trying to improve my voice acting (un)skillzorz(?) for the Voice Acting Alliance, but I'm trying to refrain from auditioning any more because I've already done lots of that and I know that eventually all those deadlines and whatnot are gonna come back and bite me in the butt.
Also, I guess I'm sort of plugging xD -kicks signature-

Hence, why I am here - hoping that someone here will give me a chance to practice >w> I need to work on range and emotion and accent and so on so forth.
My range is all up and down the feminine scale (although if I try to do seductive, I end up sounding like a five-year-old apparently) and my accents I can do are generic English, generic American and French. And sometimes Cantonese Chinese. >w>

Copypasta the following and fill out as you please:

1) Character name (M/F?)
2) Age
3) Fandom (if they come from a fandom. Original characters are appreciated also.)
4) Brief run-down of personality (a picture could also help)
5) Pitch (high? mid-high? leave open for interpretation?)
6) And then a few lines of what you'd like to be said in that voice. Can be a few lines up to a soliliquy.

for example.

1) Li-Bai Badguy
2) Somehundredsomething. Looks about 20-odd.
3) Original charcter, beotch >D
4) Charismatic and yet evil all the same. Seems a bit reclusive but that's because he's bored of humanity.
5) Mid-low to low
6) [tauntingly and then maniac] "Oh well, you leave me with no choice. You know what one thing I've learnt in over 300 years of playing the guitar? Drop-D tuning is... EVIL!!"

And then I do the recording and post up a link to it. Considering that I can't even do Li-Bai Badguy's voice (and I made him up too haha) this probably isn't a good example. xD

So yeah. The more practice I get the better I guess (within reason though, sometimes a little thing called 'life' gets in the way @A@)

Those who can be stuffed, have fun! Razz

1) Stevie Boltwright (F)
2) Fourteen
3) Original, supernatural high school setting.
4) Young, Cute, Werewolf. She's generally the innocent, naive one in most situations. On occasions that are few and far between, she can take on a more aggressive side, revealing her werewolf nature. Generally she just has ears, tail and slightly sharper teeth.
5) Open to interpretation, though it should show Naivety and Innocence.
6)
"You're the sweetest thing since honey. And I don't understand why I feel that way" /romance
"Does this mean that we get to fight bad guys?" /excited
"Roq, what are Jay and Tanner doing?" /confused-naive.
"Just Get Back!" /Agressive.

[Well, this put the character in perspective >_>"]

xD Because this is too good to miss out on making you sound stupid. I'll do a serious one if you want ;)


1) Character name (M/F?): Rosilanda Fannypants (F)
2) Age: 22
3) Fandom: Original
4) Brief run-down of personality:

She's an airhead, British, and her sole aim in life is to find a man to marry and take care of her with a big house. Oh, she looooves cats. Often seen with one in her handbag. Because she has 5 of them. She's spoilt, but had the finest education because her father thought she might actually become something, but she was an only child and he was an extremely rich widow, and he doted on her.

5) Pitch (high? mid-high? leave open for interpretation?) Open.

6) And then a few lines of what you'd like to be said in that voice. Can be a few lines up to a soliliquy:

"Daddy, I'll be going out to tea tomorrow with Mr Darcy! Please feed Fluffy Miaowington for me, he's getting dreadfully thin! Oh, and would you mind telling Candi I won her that fabulous coat at the raffle...!"

TIME TO MAKE MY PUPPET DANCE~~~ >=D
(Take a guess why I'm getting you to try this, now, Madja~ ;D)

1) Clara Kirishima (F)
2) 13
3) World Embryo
4) Clara is a somewhat bratty girl who loves Americanizing things. With a naive personality, she enjoys hiding her confusion under a bubbly facade. She absolutely adores her brother, Joe, who shares her optimistic nature, and the both of them often indulge in ridiculous antics in an effort to entertain themselves while all their friends discuss more serious topics.

Here is a pict00r of her~
5) High, preferably with a little bit of a fake American accent.
6) [slightly irritated, with a very 'matter-of-factly' feel to the first bit] "You're 'Arisugawa', so you're also "Alice." It's the first name we created for you-- full of deep affection!"

[excitedly, with a hint of impatience] "Game Start!!"

[as though suspicious] "Who's this girl? A child of a victim or something?"

[slightly mischievously] "Well, well, my, my-- if it isn't Alice!"

Oh my god I loled so hard! That was priceless! Can I do another one?

ETA: Feedback - Did like the way you modulated it, does work! Especially the brittish accent. The beginning seemed more "Madj" than Rosilanda though :)

You could be a rockstar!

Rei: I guess you're right xD I get way too into the silly roles. See?! You can't faze me! XD A rockstar huh? Hmm.... xD

Pyro: I hoped it would be xD Oh yay! Her lines were fun to do. I dunno if my fake American accent was any good though XD; It's ridiculously hard trying to do a bad accent.
XD Yes, radioplay. Or audiodrama, whatever floats your boat ;D

LMAO. Go right ahead. xDD

And here's some more:
Lillyxandra for Caddyl
Bianca for JVCA

1) Jay Lucky (F)
2) Sixteen
3) Same as Stevie
4) Jay Is you typical goofball girl. She grew up and went through all of her school with Tanner*, and the two have had an almost-but-not-quite romance since tanyone could remember. Jay tries to crack a joke all the time. She's not exactly smart, but like the others in their little group, she's fiercly loyal.
She has like, lightning-ey powers, and a little of that energy is reflected in her personality.
https://2img.net/h/oi40.tinypic.com/16l9oy1.jpg - Image.
5) Again, open, but keeping with the goofball premise.
6) "Tanner, are you sure this is how you want us to be" /rare serious moment.
"Sometimes, Steve, I wonder If you were a puppy in a previous life, Then I remember that you're a werewolf" /Joking around.
"Wait, he did what now?" /Confused, trying to turn it into a joke.
[Insert any jokes you think of here]
*Zaps a typical bad guy couple* "You guys really had that spark, didn't you?"

*Tanner - Think Jake from "Jake Long American Dragon".

When you say joke, are you talking terrible jokes or decent ones? xD

Moar voices:
Fire-heart for tobi-usumaki
Pierre Pompousbottom for Syill

Hm... I think I actually really like the voice I did with Clara! I should hang onto it and use it again sometime Very Happy

I might do your other one tomorrow Fred >w>

Meanwhile, I'd just like to complain about how difficult it is to play a good, hard game of Table Tennis properly when the sight in your right eye blurs out on you every other minute. That damn thing that blew into my eye after school, I suffered for nearly three hours during my work meeting until I got some eyedrops later, like ten minutes before I went to go play T__T

Didn't stop me noticing certain stuff (coughcosplaylolcough) during the night though... hehe. Sneaky? xD

omgthankssomuch. I needed a quick VA fix but I didn't have any lines to do xD
I think I had too much fun with this... my part ended up being longer than the lines combined. Oops. Sorry Razz (and on that note, if you can't understand it for some reason or other... maybe my pronunciation? haha, I can provide a translation Razz)

Here we go!
Xie Lu-Xia for Lunaressence

Meanwhile, you're on the VAA too now? Gimme your username and I'll friend-add you! I'm Li-Bai on there also Very Happy

Hey Li-bai~!

You can do medium low voices, yeah? Want to try out for this audition? http://voiceactingalliance.com/board/showthread.php?t=44011

They're desperate for male voices haha;;; I can't help due to the fact I can only do cute characters I fail so hard.

Or if you have friends who can do male voices will be awesome :3

Heheh! It usually works out that way - damn man drought, not even the VAA is exempt from it xD (I had a hard enough time getting a sufficient number of male auds. for my Godchild project. Ha!)

Hoo hoo hoo.... It looks interesting! I might try out and bug some male friends on the VAA to as well! Very Happy Thanks for the link~~

I always wanted to try Voice Acting. But I don't have a good enough microphone and I don't have any soundproof place to do it.

Is Godchild that thing by uh... Kaori something?

With Count Cain? I had an online friend who was a fan.

It's great fun! I think everyone should have a go at least once Very Happy -kicks VAA link- [Voice Acting Alliance ahoy!]

If you have a SingStar or Rock Band mic, apparently those work well enough, but to avoid 'pops' you might wanna shove a stocking over it or just not talk directly into the mic (like, talk over it). Embedded mics are very good and decent, it's what I use :)

Technically you don't NEED a soundproof booth, because you can always clean up noise afterwards on Audacity or something, but closets or any other place with clothes hanging up (coat cupboard) can be pretty echoless :)
If you look at this thread here > "Bizarre Low-Budget Recording Studios!" you'll see a whole myriad of soundproof 'booths' xD
Tried under a dining table with a big tablecloth over the top? What about under your bedcovers? Heck, just put up a blanket or few over your head and the computer while you record! (Mind the fan doesn't overheat though, heheh.)

Yep, the Cain Saga/Godchild by Kaori Yuki Very Happy I love Kaori Yuki's work - her storylines and art and ability to twist pretty fairy tales into something completely different and yet still working (ie. 'Ludwig Revolution' ;D)
It's my first project so I just took a chapter of 'Godchild' (my fav. chapter 'Lion Crest' - eck scanlation discrepancies!) and scripted it out for a radioplay :) > [Demo!]

Half of those are audition lines. Cain's lines (first speaker) are for the actual, Riff's (second speaker) is his audition lines. I nearly have everyone's lines to start mixing properly... >w>
Dusk-Requiem is Cain (ilu Dusk-Requiem xD chuu~!) and Teacher_Nine is Riff (I just Skype talked to him and Mirielle (another VAA-er in Australia) the other night! He was really nice Very Happy He said he felt like he was on 'Flight of the Conchords' or something xDD)
