I have a special announcement tonight, folks. I'm happy to share with you all a project I have been involved with for awhile now and has finally gotten going. Today marks my debut into internet voice acting with the 8-Bit Theater Radio Play!
Directed by Evan Bremer, a seasoned internet VO individual, the series is adapted from Brian Clevinger's (of Atomic Robo fame) popular sprite comic from 2001 called 8-Bit Theater. The comic is a parody of the Final Fantasy video game series and involves a band of ne'er-do-wells and misfit adventurers stumbling into the role of the Light Warriors, the prophetic saviors of the world - but they'd sooner bicker amongst themselves nonsensically than behave like legendary heroes.
The first episode of the Radio Play has been released online today, for your listening pleasure! My contribution includes the title art for the video thumbnail, which you can see above, and a few bit voices. I will have a partially more regular speaking role a few episodes down the road, so I hope you all enjoy my amateur VO skills! ^^ If you want to keep up with information on the future of the Radio Play, you can follow the official Tumblr or Evan's personal webpage. Enjoy the antics! There's sure to be many more episodes to come! :)
This is the first image I've drawn and colored completely on my Wacom tablet in a long time, and it came out great! Drawing inanimate objects has always been one of my weak points, but I think I made a good effort here. The idea was to depict a dingy tavern where adventurers would commonly meet - but of course, the heroes of 8-Bit Theater are not the heroes we want, so they're shoved in the corner. I don't feel like I made the place look as dank as I could have, but I made clarity of the image a priority over the mood.
