Voice Acting Training :3
Post By porkbun. 12/08/09, 03:16 pm

So hiya!
You may (or may not have) noticed that Li-Bai has a voice acting thread.
Well Im gonna do one too. :3
I'm part of VAA like Li-Bai, and I kinda need to learn the basics, so what better way than to get everyone to make characters up and let me have a go!

So layout....
1) Name
2) Age
3) Personality
4) Pitch?
5) And what do they say? More than at least 2 lines please!


Voice Range: I CANNOT go low. It just sounds weird. I can do cute squeaky voices. I do French and German at school, and I'm Cantonese, so I think if I tried hard enough, I could do accents :3 (Mandarin if I tried REALLY Hard). If it helps, I can kinda do impersonations of:

Sonic the Hedgehog characters:
Amy Rose
Cream
Sonic (kinda)
Tails
Rouge

Fan made:
Kingdom Hearts Chronicles characters >.>
Charlie the Unicorn: the pink and blue unicorns

I CAN DO REALLY ANNOYING VOICES!!!! 8D

Though I have to say, I sound different on the comp, so it may differ >..>
But please keep in mind, Im new, and I have a munted old headset, but its better that laptop mic... 8D
Any are welcome~

" Come on~ It's not that bad. I could have just FORCED him to fall in love with you~ This way you get to choose!"

@Li-Bai: lol I thought so, but I thought that because I put pin-yin next to the name, then you said it in Mandarin. XD
@Cactiberry: Okay! I think I can do this! :3 I'll get it up when I can... (could be today, or tomorrow) Very Happy

BELAAAATEEEEED

Hmm... let me try something here >w>

MAKESHIFT AUDITIONS FOR ‘DATTBTW’ TIEM WHOOYEAH (lol longest acronym ever. DATTBTW.)
(This is hard, I haven't even started writing this character in the radioplay yet haha)

1) Wilhelm Anapol Taylor
2) We'll say around mid-teen for now~
3) Quiet and reserved, but more out of a natural soberness than anything else. Sensible, polite and has his head on straight although there is a side to him that is free and witty.
4) Pitch sort of mid-low to mid-high (not a whole lot low. It's good to practice >D How do you think I can do boy voices now? Hahah)

5) - (polite, affable) "Please, call me Will. The mayor is my uncle. Feel free to stay in Thamasa however long you like.”
- (irritated) “Don’t be so crude. Clément is thrown out of the army and now this? It’s too perfect for it to be just a coincidence.”
- (alarmed) “H-hey! Get back here! You have no idea what’s on the other – ohh, for Shiva’s sake!”

:3 cool thanks!
Im actually finding it really hard. (me and my mic dont get on well, and my voice sounds weird... maybe Im growing up? XD)

@Cactiberry: I'll try and get yours to you soon. I've been heck busy, and I had to do my internal that day, when I said I was going to send it...sowwy

I'll do what I can. Later on when I get an actual mic, and I get better at this, I'll redo them. :3

Hahaha. It usually goes that the first few times you hear your own voice when you're trying to VA it sounds odd. I've grown to like the sound of some of the voices that I've made in the past, like the voice I used for 'Clara' in my VA practice thread xD

Hmm, i get that. But my voice keeps like,... how do you explain it.. croak.
Ah never mind.

1) Name: Liber
2) Age: Actually? Thousands of years old. Has appearance of around 14 years old though.
3) Personality: (This is copy pasted from his Zodiac) "People born in the Year of the Rabbit are articulate, talented, and ambitious. They are virtuous, reserved, and have excellent taste. Rabbit people are admired, trusted, and are often financially lucky. They are fond of gossip but are tactful and generally kind. Rabbit people seldom lose their temper. They are clever at business and being conscientious, never back out of a contract. They would make good gamblers for they have the uncanny gift of choosing the right thing. However, they seldom gamble, as they are conservative and wise."
4) Pitch? He's a bunny/boy - so not too high, but he wouldn't be very low. This is set in a Neo-victorian England setting, so an english accent would be appropriate, but not necessary.
5) And what do they say?
"So it's a deal then? You'll help me find the books, and I'll teach you how to use them. Why do I want to find them? They're my property - do you really need to ask?"

omg lol you can sounds like Sonic~? oWo

I think you'd be good for my Sonic OC, hm~?
That is...if you're not too busy~

1) Name: Rose Avalon (Fox) (Voice Acting Training :3 Rose-1)
2) Age: 16
3) Personality: Rose is slightly more calm around her teammates Aly and Angel and her friend Blade but is not very tolerant to her friendly nemesis, Crimson.
4) Pitch: Rose is a Sonic Character so naturally, her voice will tend to be kinda cartoony. Mid-low to Mid-high. If it helps, she sounds like Amy kinda~
5) What do they say:
(cheerful)"Hey, we're like sisters. Sisters look out for each other~"
(annoyed)"What made you think you had a chance? Don't talk to me like we've suddenly become friends!"
(uncertain)"Huh? I thought you said you didn't believe in the supernatural..."

Yeah, I love voice acting. I just auditioned for something on the VAA since I haven't in a while and I was getting withdrawal symptoms, haha. (One of the projects I voiced for finally came out! Whooyeah!) ... my own thread seems to be gathering dust a bit xD' /plug (Thanks for the comment on my demo reel though lol)

Am downloading now and may return with critique. Thanks muchly! :3

Edit: Your voice is so cute! xD; Just a note, did you use different microphones? I heard different qualities like woah. >w>

Critique tiem! I'll just say now I don't mean to hurt feelings with this or anything. I try not to, but I'm just being honest so it might come across as abrupt. Sorry in advance >___>

Wall of text ahoy!

Spoiler:
 

And uh... that's all I have to say. I may return with another character to help you practice more :)

Say, JVCA, is Liber from the same thing as Bianca? Heheh. >w>~

Thanks heaps for the critique. I expected this, so I metally prepared myself? lol
I don't mind that you're abrupt, I prefer the truth than fiction. I'll keep it all in mind when doing Mystix's character later today.

But once again, thanks alot for that~! Now I know what I need to work on!

You need to make up a real demo tape, unless you have one in secret somewhere.
Those are always useful for getting help or advice from others, and it also gives a good indication of what your range is, and sometimes if you're better with actual dubbing or games, or radioplays.

Like for example:
'Okay, some random hilarious scene here. voice goes high and annoying and hyper. Next, some desperate scene in the rain. Just go with whatever here. Sexy pause ish lines go here, then insert some boyish lines and then put in something with screaming or crying.'

I love doing the last ones. I look like a complete Richard screaming into my microphone, but it gives me the shivers hearing it afterwards. >3333


If you come up with a demo tape, then you should totally put it here. Or if you had one.

OH
Yes, you should do some accent practice too. It's lulzy.
