Scratch Sees you... by BlackGryph0n Scratch Sees you... by BlackGryph0n
Hello everypony! :wave:

Ok, So I just got back from Cambodia; the twelfth and LAST COUNTRY I WILL TOUR THIS YEAR!!
:iconfluttershyyesplz:

Needless to say I have been very busy lately... This image will be used at the end of my new Vinyl Scratch Animation during which the new song will be played.
I know it has taken me a long time, but I don't want y'all to get your hopes up about this animation. It is not very long and not nearly as elaborate is it would seem like it should be, taking this long ^^; ...

I have actually been finished with the animation for about a week now, I have just been waiting on all my character voice recordings to come in. (I have to pick from a bunch of girls voices which I like best for the character.)

Anyway, about the image:
This was drawn by mouse in Photoshop CS4, based off of a frame from my animation. ( [link] ) It took about three hours.
I am not very familiar with graphic art in Photoshop yet. My first and last one for a while was that pic of my OC Gryphon, Scauden;
so I am still not very good at it... I like to try new things though! Please feel free to tell me what you think, what needs improvement, etc...
EDIT: I changed a few things that where erking me a bit, still it's not my favorite piece... :shrug:

:iconlunamlpplz: THANK THEE EVERYPONY, FOR THY THOUGHTFUL AND AFFECTIONATE REMARKS THUS FAR! WE ARE HUMBLED AND HONORED BY THINE LOVING HEARTS AND ENTHUSIASTIC MINDS! FAIR WELL!!

Thanks, and always remember kids; Vinyl Scratch is HASBRO and :iconfyre-flye:
Goodbye everypony! :wave:

Oooh, she's so sparkly and shiny now. The feathery smoke and light effects add a lot of atmosphere to her performance too. Usually when ponies (like Twilight Sparkle or Princess Luna) light up their eyes it's scary, but here it's the neatest thing Equestria has ever seen. The brushstrokes you use to build the strands of hair look like sparks of electricity too, though I'm guessing you were aiming for a more silky look along the edges as well. Considering how quickly you pick up and refine new talents you'll find your way to where you want to be fairly quickly.

Still, Vinyl leaves all of the other ponies in awe. I'm starting to think you have a soft spot for her too. :)

So, where did you put out the call for voice actresses? It sounds like you're also breaking into full-scale directing and producing too.

Congratulations on a successful tour and I wish you a great time for the rest of the year. At least now you can settle into your new home and get it decorated and stocked just in time for the holidays. (Actually, I hope you get a chance to spend at least one of them with your family.) Still, party at your place on New Year's Eve? ;)

W00T FOR FAIRY-SLAYER'S COMMENT!! :squee:

You know, it is kinda crazy, but you nailed the look I was going for with her hair!! :wow:
Electricity has always come to mind when I picture Vinyl Scratch. Probably a combination of her colors and her job. :shrug: Anyway, in my new animation I give her magic a very electrical feel and this pic will adorn the end, so I wanted to stick with the theme... I actually changed a few things in this picture though, cause I thought the glare from her left eye made the pic look somewhat blurry.

Hmm, I guess Vinyl is growing on me... Probably just recently though due to this never-ending project that I have undertaken! :pc:

I was actually going to put out a call to more people, but one; I didn't want to give away the lines to too many people, and 2; for some reason, having someone else read those lines, record them, and send them in to me is kinda embarrassing... IDK though, maybe it's just me... :blush:
Anyhow, I ended up having my mom and sisters do a few recordings. They have sent them in to me, and believe it or not, my Mom did them the best! So Vinyl Scratch will be my Mom! :la:

The tour was great all be it exhausting. I have already began to decorate my place with trinkets from the countries I have been to this year. (Except for Cambodia, where I managed to acquire human teeth and bone fragments from the Killing Fields... Not a pretty story... )

I will be heading home for christmas! Good thing too! I miss my Mommy! :tears:
My Dad keeps telling me I should date a Japanese girl cause I am "All alone out here," but I have never fancied dating. Been true since I was ten. I just have no interest in relationships at the moment. They say it's cause of my Autism, but "they" say a lot of things... :P

THANKS AGAIN FOR ANOTHER THOUGHTFUL COMMENT!! :huggle:

So next you're going to sew your own Vinyl Scratch plushie? :lol:

Hopefully you won't mind me saying so (as a second review), but I liked the lighting in the first version better, at least having one side darkened plus the glare. Perhaps if there were a gradient for the lens flare, a smooth transition instead of so may concentric circles, then maybe that would have alleviated the issue.(?) The shading on her ear and horn are better in the second version, but their shadows steal some of the dynamics from her mane.

Still, most importantly, go with what you're happy with. :)

It's very cool of your mom to take a role in the project. Maybe if she does a really good job then she'll get to do her voice in the show! My only question now is how much work will it be to synchronize the animation to her voice? Unless she's really good at lip synching then you may need to adjust. (IIRC/AFAIK, voices are usually recorded first.)

You may be interested in the documentary "The Making of South Park: 6 Days to Air." It's about how they can make an episode from scratch in less than a week! Even though their designs are very simple it still blew me away. (Then again, in the past they've aired episodes to do with something that happened only a week or two earlier.)
Piece 1: 6 Days to Air.z01
Piece 2: 6 Days to Air.zip

I'm glad you're settling into the new place fine, and more so that you get to go home for a little while too. Need a house-sitter for Christmas? ;) Also, though I understand your feelings about the remains from Cambodia, perhaps you could get one of those little shrines with a small jar/urn to put them in. It may be a nice little way to honor the people in a positive way, even if it's not strictly adhering to Cambodian or Japanese culture.

All right, best of luck with everything going on. Take care.
