Casey and Sully:a Tale of Love and the Power of dA
MaripazVillar , I am sorry that it took me this long to make a journal entry for this.
    Once upon a time, MaripazVillar made a lovely drawing that looked like this:
    in response I wrote this:
"So hey dude, what's with the spiffy outfit? a little too smancy for grabin' some grub."
"umm... I thought... we could go to... you know that fancy Italian restaurant down the street."
"oh, you don't need to dress up to eat Italian! You're such a goof."
"...yeah, yeah I really am."
"wha'ja say?"
"Never mind"
"Say, I think some of your clothes from when we went treehouse-camping are still in the car. You ought'a throw some on, and we'll get some real Italian. Pizza!"
"okay, sure"
"Good, I can't have you looking better than me now, can I?"
    Then MaripazVillar and I had a little conversation in which:
- I named the two characters Casey and Sully (short for Sullivan). We both agreed that these were great under

So what have I been up to? (Also a blog)
Hey, because you the reader are here I assume you wanna know about the shit going on
in my great life. Well I can tell you i've just survived a hellish minor and an equally hellish assessment
So now i'm in my last year of studies waiting for poison rain to come erode me from the world
I'm working on a graduation film, while waiting for my calart letter of probably rejection.
I just wanna apologize for being so extremely inactive, working on a graduation film seems to really swallow up some time.
Plus I cough-finally-cough-got-overwatch so all my free time just gets swept away by that haha.
Anyway if any of you are interested thinking "hey woe you twat I like your fucking art why can't you show more???"
Well then I had to make a graduation blog so you can follow my intense pain through that if you guys are even remotely interested haha.
I have a big big big artblock now though and really that blog is a

Hi everyone, well, basically I'm thinking of making a Shimeji with my characters to sort of, get some kind of anyone interested in them and/or
our projects, however not sure if it would be worth the time.
I'm able to remove their cloning ability and their ability to throw away windows, so any disruption they might cause or reason to become
unhappy with them could be removed/reduced.

Basically I'm looking for any responses on whether something like this would interest you/be interesting for anyone/be worth the time.

Your little bobble character thingummies are so cute. Their movement, everything. xD
How did you make them?
SwiftIllusion Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2011
xD thank you very much :).
I've made them with some fancy texture/rendering setup in 3d then combining the frames in a 2d program :3, all the facial expression changes are 2d sprites I've edited from these - [link]
-that I swap onto the face model on appropriate frames.
Xinoph Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2011
You use a 3d program to make them? O-o

How do you get the pixel effect?
SwiftIllusion Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2011
I give the model shader effects and such and render it from a far distance with a bunch of settings so it comes out sharp, then I just crop the borders away,
something neat I came up with that happened to work out well :D.
