Album art wips.
Holy cow thanks for all the love on this so far everyone!! I’ll be finishing this art up soon-ish. Right now I’m on a Destiny kick to take a break from work + life right now, but I’ll be back in action soon enough :). I’m floored though by the response though as of right now :). Thanks again!
Legendary animation director, Takeshi Koike’s (Redline, Trava Fist Planet, Animatrix) simple explanation on why his animation style employs black shadows on his works. From the Making of Redline documentary.
We at Black Dynamite’s production are huge fans of Koike and have paid homage to his approach (As well as our love of 70s comics and cartoons) on our show as well.
I use a lot of spot blacks in my work too just for the fact that I think its an appealing style + Takeshi Koike and Hiroyuki Imaishi both have used them and they’re some of my biggest inspirations.
WIP album demos.
Anyone who knows me well enough has probably heard me say at one point or another I was going to remake this track. I’m finally doing it. I managed to find this project file sometime last year after thinking I had lost it sometime in 2011.
The very few bits of guitar in this demo are from the 2011 recording just to be placeholder for now. There is a lot I’ve got to do still to this track but it is already sounding a lot cooler to me than the 2011 version of the song.
Showing off another new demo from the album I’m slowly working on. Drums need a lot of work, guitars will be re-recorded as well as I’ll throw a solo somewhere in there maybe. It also needs bass. But as an idea its sounding pretty sweet- this will be the opening track.
“Hello. This Is the master computer FUNERAL. Since your last login I’ve discerned it is now your time to die”.
I’ve already made my twitter private and deleted any apps I have to access it, but I’m just letting people on Tumblr know as well I’m taking a break from tumblr/twitter and to an extent facebook (though for friends that have me on there I still will be checking it). I just want my own space right now and also to be free of some distractions to maybe power ahead on some of my projects.
So yeah dunno when I’ll be posting around here again but it probably won’t be at least for another month or two. I may open up my twitter beforehand but we’ll see how that goes. If anyone urgently needs me I guess there really isn’t anywhere else you can get ahold of me, maybe send a DA note or something if I happen to check there.
