I know I haven't been around for awhile, but what did I miss? You guys started a patreon for Season 3?

Don't worry, I gotcha fam 8-)

Or is what happened the reason why it's usually dead around here? Zoom view past the incoming thunderstorm to make out microscopic details on the surface of the moon, when there's plenty of opportunity to notice both?

@  ShenFNWoo : (23 May 2019 - 06:39 AM)

@Kef, I'm reading context clues. That's how I know you're not interested. I can feel the low key disrespect from orbit

@ furrykef Good pointing that out on the cel, i see what you mean after looking at the intro. Its very possible this was an early concept cel and was scrapped. Possible also that they had decided to give her more prominent robotic legs early in the characters design perhaps?

@  randomizer : (23 May 2019 - 02:17 AM)

Satam is full of animation errors. This is one of my favourites: https://i.imgur.com/aYo73nh.jpg

@  Shadow : (23 May 2019 - 02:04 AM)

Their was a lot of color problems if you ever pause the frames of episodes.

@  furrykef : (22 May 2019 - 10:02 PM)

Okay, I just had a real close look at the intro. Bunnie holds that pose for two frames. In the first, Sonic's in front of one thigh and the other thigh is colored correctly (gray). In the second frame, Sonic covers both thighs. But I looked real close and I noticed in the first frame you do get a glimpse of Bunnie's hidden thigh... and it's brown. So I think the gray thigh was a separate cel that was overlaid to correct the colors, or it was corrected in postproduction.

@  furrykef : (22 May 2019 - 09:37 PM)

I mean, this is DiC we're talking about. We've all seen what kind of stuff has slipped through the cracks in their cartoons...

@  furrykef : (22 May 2019 - 09:36 PM)

That doesn't necessarily mean the cel is fake, but it does make me wonder. Maybe this was an animation error that got caught before they put the show on the air.

@  furrykef : (22 May 2019 - 09:34 PM)

As for the Bunnie cel, her thighs are colored brown like her fur instead of the robotic gray. The issue is on both sides of the cel.

@  furrykef : (22 May 2019 - 09:32 PM)

When did I say I was not interested?

@  Shadow : (22 May 2019 - 09:16 PM)

I'm not interested in being any kind of moderator and would rather just be a casual person to chit chat on there.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 May 2019 - 07:25 PM)

I know most, if not all of us, will act like adults but with a public server there's gonna be people, whether it's teens or adults, that don't act like the way they should.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 May 2019 - 07:23 PM)

As for rules, I don't think they should be totally laxed, at least at the start. Not saying they should be strict either. Just have enough that could be eased once the rhythm and flow of the server is established and can see how things will go

@  Wulfsbane : (22 May 2019 - 07:22 PM)

I think chief should be the one to set up the discord. I mean if there's gonna be a FUS server, it might as well be admin'd by the guy who owns the place

@  ShenFNWoo : (22 May 2019 - 07:03 PM)

Kef's not interested.

@  Shadow : (22 May 2019 - 06:58 PM)

How about Kef be admin?

@  nzoomed : (22 May 2019 - 05:06 PM)

Artist!

So over the last little while the comic Sea3on has been delayed. Partly with sickness, sharing time between S3A and S3, and other stuff.

I'm making this post more regarding the comic. I'm in need of a new comic artist currently. My main artist Stephen has had much going on and while he tells me he wants to stay going, it just isn't feasible at this time.

This of course is sad news for all of us, as he has been the most epic of comic artists with plenty of fans. So I'm sure filling his shoes will be a hard thing to do. However for the survival of Sea3on it does have to be done.
SO! If you are interested in being part of the Sea3on comic as a head artist, please shoot me a email with your application and any art you have.
Paul@sonicsatam.com

Cheers,

Paul.

Hope to get a Cintque to replace my shot tablet so I could do just this, start working on comics (or at least cover art). I'd be happy to put some of my work out there for at least filled between gaps.

If I would have enough time for this I would like to help, but I can't. It will get really hard to get someone who can actually get close to Stephens level of quality and especially great way of expressing emotions ;)

 

(Btw: sometimes my comments on the Sea3on page get tagged as spam. Why?)

Over the last few months, the writing felt like it was on the wall and I'm glad to see these steps being taken, difficult though they are. Make no mistake, I love Saber's work. He continually improved and by the start of Chapter 5 was regularly putting out work that puts even the best art of the Archie Sonic comics to shame. I wish him the best both professionally and as a continued member of this community. In addition, as someone who over the past several months has kept delaying his own work due to the demands of real life, I don't blame him for the recent delays. Things like that just happen, and that's not even taking his recent illness into account...

 

As Paul said, however, a story of the length and scope of Sea3on cannot survive in the face of the amount of delays that much of the past year saw. I was starting to lose hope that the comic would ever get back on its feet, and now it looks like there's a chance for that.

 

Thank you once again to all those involved with Sea3on.

It's official, I'm getting a cintque with my savings and tax returns check it: http://www.wacom.com...ve/cintiq-13-hd

 

 Hopefully this will work better than the crappy tablet I have to use...(I have CS6, Corel 12, and SAI...I feel bottle-necked with my little malfunctioning tablet just now.)

 

 Honestly I think we should split the burden up more like the professionals do. We need someone to pencil, someone to ink (digital/SAI would do fine), and color.

 

 I can do all three, but I think I could do color and inking very steadily given my years of practice as a digital artist.

http://theredstrange...Sonic-394708545

http://theredstrange...otnik-400346173

http://theredstrange...-Gray-342592137

 

 I'd recommend at least two pencilers, an inker, and a colorist. Maybe some cover and guest art to fill in gaps. At least a three man art team would be nice.

 

I will send my application soon.

I concur with Stranger that setting up a pipeline, if possible, would be a good idea. Not that I'd be of any help, as I'm sadly useless in such matters...

I got my Cintiq on eBay. Cost me about half what it would have cost me otherwise. It didn't come with a pen, but my Intuos 3 pen is compatible, so that was no problem.

I'm loath to use it, though, because I'm always scared to death of scratching the screen...

I'm currently eying this alternative approach. Don't know if the 400 dollar difference will make or break the deal, but with all the positive feedback, it's worth a shot.

That is definitely an option. But I got the cash. I'm a rather frugal fellow. I've been saving up to make my own little media-making empire. I'm also a writer and musician and have been saving for VSTs and various softwares for my digital art.

http://sonicsatam.co...?showtopic=4854

Saber, do you think it would be possible to divide the work up as I have mentioned? Making this a collaborative effort could speed up production and even quality.

Oh yes, I forgot to mention I'm a letterer too. Most people these days letter their comics by using a pre-made font and just typing it in. While this can work well, I think cartoony works such as a Sonic comic would tend to benefit more from a hand-lettered comic. I do what I call "digital hand-lettering". It's digital because I'm using a tablet, and it's by hand because I draw each letter one by one. This gives a much more organic look to the letters. I imagine I wouldn't provide sufficient value if hired to do solely letters, but it wouldn't be much work for me to throw in letters as I ink a page.

Anyway, I should add that the traditional "penciler, inker, colorist" approach is not the only way to divide up labor. The comic book industry developed that scheme not because it produces the highest quality work, but because it makes artists interchangeable, like workers in an assembly line. Here is an article by Mark Evanier on the subject explaining how the system came about and why he doesn't like it. (Mark isn't a comic book artist himself -- he's a writer -- but he knows a lot about the industry and its artists, having known and worked with a number of them personally.) That is, it's not that he thinks it's a bad way to collaborate; what's bad is being locked into thinking it's the only way. So I'm not against using this kind of system; I'm just pointing out there are other options.

That said, I think inking and lettering are likely the only help I'd be able to provide consistently. While I can do pencils and colors, which means I can fill in in a pinch, they're not what I'm best at.

By being a lousy penciler and colorist. :P

That's only half true. Manga Studio EX 4 makes inking easy, and I presume Manga Studio 5 would do the same once I find the right settings for it. If not, I still have EX 4 to fall back on. And I've discovered that I really like how I can make a drawing pop off the page.

As for lettering, I dunno. I just find there's a simple joy in writing good-looking letters on a screen. I can't explain it.
