Hey Tails, I'd be interested in doing voice acting for the series, I'm not sure what voices you'd need but I'd be good for deeper voices such as The Doctor or possibly Mahin(? if he has a deep voice? That's what I always thought). Since you're technically new to the forums I was unable to message you. But I'd be glad to provide a voice or two.

Oh that's awesome! We could do well with another voice actor.

Since you're technically new to the forums I was unable to message you. But I'd be glad to provide a voice or two.
Yeah I know lol, this account is new. Just email me a sample clip of your voice acting at uzi.sanic@gmail.com, and we'll proceed from there :D

I just wanted to post some of my worries and also what could make the project better.

First thing, the actual animation, this actually has me the most worried do to the fact that it seems everyone has put tons of effort into their examples. This has me worried since the skills for animation are very different, when compared to the skills for doing just a piece of art work. First thing to do would be to give everyone their own jobs.
The jobs that would best help this project would be
  • Background Artist
  • Storyboard Artist
  • About 2 Animators who do sketchy animation
  • If possible, get a clean up artist
  • Random note, I would get rid of the text on Quote's hat, as it would make animation harder to get the detail right
Another possibly would be to use flash puppets for the characters, so you don't need to worry about changing styles. The best way to use flash puppets would be like My Little Pony, as the puppets are made out of many parts layered.

Also this is kinda mean, but see if the person who drew on paper can actually animate, as an artist, using a tablet is mainly different as the lines are typically more shaky. If the person can't make good tablet art, i would say to replace them.

Second thing, the voice acting, it seems that their are people being brought on to the project to do voice acting. If possible, you should use voice actors through the whole project. So, I just have a couple of tips for the voice acting, along with how the episodes would be made.
  • Make the storyboards/script, then voice actors, then change the storyboards a bit to fit the voice actors better, then get the background artist, and then the animation
  • Give Quote a voice actor, since it would probably be impossible to make a series with a main character who never speaks, here are some tips, Quote would probably sound like he was in his mid teens, (Cause he is still shorter than Kazuma, and a few pixels smaller then Curly in the updated graphics)
  • The best way to get a voice actor for a mid teens character, would be either get a woman to voice him, who can pull of a teen boy voice, or get a guy with a high pitch voice
  • For getting (good) voice actors, open auditions, with details for what you want the characters to sound like
  • This would also let yoou get voice actors with good microphones, or you could ask someone with a good voice to get a better microphone

We've already done this.
Random note, I would get rid of the text on Quote's hat, as it would make animation harder to get the detail right
This is a good idea, but it's not like anyone really knows what it says anyway.
Another possibly would be to use flash puppets for the characters, so you don't need to worry about changing styles. The best way to use flash puppets would be like My Little Pony, as the puppets are made out of many parts layered.
It's very unlikely that you could make this actually look good.
Also this is kinda mean, but see if the person who drew on paper can actually animate, as an artist, using a tablet is mainly different as the lines are typically more shaky. If the person can't make good tablet art, i would say to replace them.
I know that Tails might really not want to do this -- but at some point he's going to have to.

Second thing, the voice acting, it seems that their are people being brought on to the project to do voice acting. If possible, you should use voice actors through the whole project. So, I just have a couple of tips for the voice acting, along with how the episodes would be made.

"There" and "their" aren't the same word. "There" as in *over there*, "their" as in *it's their present!*.
*Sounds like a good idea.
*We're still debating how we're going to handle Quote speaking.
*\\
*Well, right now it seems we're just getting people, and seeing who they fit. But obviously this is what we should be doing.
*Yes. I have a fine microphone, but I think the audio quality needs to be consistent, so we'll have to commute on that matter.

Thank you for answering this zxin, what he's said is correct.

We've already given multiple jobs to people in the same way you have said, the art examples are just, well, examples that the artists (not animators) have given. This is because we did not have many animators before this announcement.

We'll decide what the characters are going to look like in the concept/style art (and we have decided to use Pixel's art style), but thanks for the tip!

It could work pretty well if we used puppets, but not only have our animators not really worked in that type of animation, but I think it'll look better if we didn't use puppets. But thanks for the tip :D

About that, I know it's a bit stupid, but the person who drew the paper drawing isn't an artist lol She's actually a script/story writer, but she volunteered to draw it for this announcement. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Hmm, voice actors are our weakest point right now, believe it or not. We're going to need quite a few, and some voice actors might need to take multiple roles.
That's a good idea, we might try that!
Although we haven't finalised Quote's voice (whether he will be mute or not), we thought that instead of making him speak, which a lot of people will be against, we should have Curly speak in his place, or have his expressions very visible, making it easy to see what he's thinking. But if we will need to get him a voice actor, we'll take your suggestion into consideration.
You're right, we should definitely open auditions. However, we'll need volunteers, as we don't have any money to throw away lol
Yeah, the microphone quality is just as important as the voice, so we'll take that into account.

Thanks for the suggestions, GimmickyHipster!

It can be great to see Cave Story animated Series on Internet

Also a great idea to this kind of works is to request good voice actors (I'm willing to lend my voice, That's my dream)xD but is a Very important step also it's important that Make sure about The voice actors can be willing to lend their voices until The end of The animated Series cause its so Difficult to find somebody with a Very similar tone of voice that some person

P.S. What did the moderator edit?

Actually i told @TheCyberSleuth about this topic un discord And she understand It Also i told her that if she wants read all my posts in this thread
Also i got a solicitude of test my voice for voice acting for this project And I'm waiting For a response but @Tails Warrior wasn't online all these days And i Was looking to see if he Was online recently And he wasn't in a few days
And finally in one of The posts of @Tails Warrior he says that maybe there can be people Making multiple character voices cause The project have more storywrittings that voice actors And there's just few voice actors so I'm giving ideas about some voice acting posibilities
Also i put @ColdCallerLoopy in my post cause he said that he is good with Deep voices so i write some characters that probably have a Deep voice in my post specificly un the part where i mention him
I Hope that i understand my purpose And simply if they don't want I'm not gonna force them, i Was just saying my ideas And it's their call if they want to follow them(my ideas).

I don't think that you should really be involved in the project unless your English improves. As it is, you seem to have misunderstood that vb isn't a girl and doesn't want to or is unable to participate in the project, that it's not your job to tell people what voice acting role they could suit when you've never heard them act before, especialy doing so outside of the team's official chats. On top of this, the way you talk makes it a struggle to interperut what you actually mean.

And EVERY hour that i Saw @Tails Warrior isn't online And am not leading anything, I'm giving ideas to whoever want to follow them And The one that can leas this topic is @Tails Warrior (And The admins)And i know It And Also that's Why un trying to Say Everything in a Way that i Hope that anybody misunderstand It but What i can do if there is people that see everything like they want to see it, ANYTHING, i can't do ANYTHING

You sound as if you're in hysterics. Here are some tips:
1. Calm down.
2. Remember that TheCyberSleuth isn't female.
3. Read up on English grammar, and use of capitalisation/punctuation.
Now,
It's not your job to tell people what their options are and what decisions could be; especially since you're not in any way officially involved with the project. If you have something to offer and you would like to join (assuming you can improve your English to an intelligible level, that is) then please email Tails Warrior at uzi.sanic@gmail.com.
