    Well it’s in my graphic design curriculum (ifff I’m able to get those courses online) and once I figure out what it is and what it does it’ll probably be great for idk designing a YouTube channel or cover designs or other aesthetic marketing networks and since I plan to go on the self-publishing route that’ll be really important for me. What got me into it was kinda a conversation like: Me; I wanna learn to animate if I can’t get a job this year!!! Mom; We’re not funding that, it doesn’t make money. Me; *ridiculous pile of research into stats and analytics and market growth* Mom; *sigh* Mom; it doesn’t make money here in this state, nobody I knew growing up who learned animation went on to be an animator. Me; but, animation. Mom; Trenholm has an associates in graphic design. Me; I don’t wanna learn to draw I already know how to do that and why would I get into Major Student Debt to learn something I can self-teach myself better and coding just isn’t something I could apply myself to and enjoy plus I can learn that free online already (actually, not so much ) and anyway a degree doesn’t actually get you a job I could build a portfolio now and probably get some small jobs *spends the next couple months trying to outstubborn my parents/prove I can already get a paying job from home if I just get a LinkIn account* (spoiler alert; that never works XD)* My sister; Dude. Look up graphic design. Me; *looks up graphic design* Me; THIS HAS ART, IT HAS WEB DESIGN, IT HAS EMAIL MARKETING, IT HAS VIDEO DESIGNING, IT HAS AUDIO AND MUSIC DESIGNING AND LITERALLY ANY ART. AND IT HAS ANIMATION!!!!!!! Ergo I shall learn graphic design or else.

    I am a firm believer of succeeding without degrees. I have gotten a lot of offers on linkedin from recruiters but not the kind I want because those feel you have to have a paper proving you know something. After I get my story started, my skills with graphic design, and web development established, I will work on animation and 3D modeling for some big dream projects hopefully for my story world.

    *lol mental image of a guy trying to sing like a little girl is hysterical and I can’t stop thinking about it now !*

    Mind as well start singing in the opera if I could. lol XD

    Oh my goodness did they actually pull off the accents, I remember being kinda disappointed with the hare-speech in the cartoon but there’s nothing like an audio that really has great voice-acting or just very lively impressions!

    Yeah…. pretend the movies never happened. They put the books to shame. The hare speech voicing acting on the audiobooks could not get any better. Otters are my next favorite voices. Here is a link to a youtube playlist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_-eq4II4Vg&list=PL5wO5l7NrUrr2_QRCqMWoids8EGOJSNfQ with many of the songs from the audiobooks. They can be quite fun to listen to.

    I use satellite internet and it can be bad sometimes too.

    To actually record…now this is gonna sound ridiculous but I use my camera that I saved up for when I was like twelve for some reason somehow (I love my camera it’s a darling little red Nikon and…*ahem* ANYWAY–) and I record using it like it’s a mic, then I use this Wondershare program to convert it to an MP3 instead of an MP4 which is video and just kinda export it like that then I import it into Audacity. I think…most people use an app…and a mic that’s implanted in smartphones or newer laptops (???)

    I would say it is quite creative and passionate. I am sure you will go even farther as you upgrade your equipment. I hope to create a small recording station as I get further into voice acting.

    I just have really bad Internet on my end and toggle between my mom’s computer and my computer that’s not connected to the Internet and has a wretched sound-system… But! When/if I get to take graphic design I’ll be getting a quality laptop for rendering and server speed and etc *my brain is still oozing with numbers and facts jumbled like alphabet soup melting braincells like a microwave after I legit spent three hours looking up requirements for a solid good graphic design laptop. (not Mac! Never Mac! Macs self-destruct with their updates as much as Apples’ those laptops are proven to commit ceremonial suicide for the extra revenue in a consumer society dependent on the Net and ideas of money which stem from ideas of gold.

    I recommend to look at the MSI laptops. They are sturdy, but can be on the thick side but have plenty of room for beefy options if you want power. I got the MSI GE75 Raider, a bit pricy but should serve me for a while. It runs the Photoshop alternative Affinity Photo and Designer and Clip Art Studio well. I agree Mac’s are not always a good option even though many of my designer and programmer friends defend them to the end. XD

    *pretends I’m not late*

    Camiblahbavon! My poor dignity.

    Lol you’ll get over it. Or you won’t 😛

    Sweet. I’ve always wanted to ace an obnoxious test.

    The honor is all mine! *is dying with laughter*

    That all sounds great! I especially agree about the unnecessary college, the internet and libraries can teach you about anything nowadays. What would the youtube channel be about? What graphic design programs/tools do you use?

    IKR!!
    My YouTube channel would probably be me goofing off and doing covers for my favorite songs from movies, and then a separate one for my writing, get a good author following, and maybe another one for art tutorials or one to teach all the weird stupid things I’ve ever learned like how to pick a lot and how to balance a fork on your nose or do a cartwheel 🙂
    I think my favorite graphic design tool I’ve used so far is Corel Painter Essentials 5 which I do for my art but I do the initial sketches in Manga Studio still and import from that because it has so many awesome brushes!!! I also do basic 3D modeling on Blender but my mom’s computer doesn’t have the server speed or graphics or what to actually render effectively on any of the three render engines so idk if I’m any good I can’t really practice the motions and I’ve only actually “finished” a ceramic egg, a teddy bear and…a couple characters’ faces but they’re not even close to being finished, and I have do primitive rigging I have mastered the basics of absolutely nothing tho 😁I downloaded Inkscapes a while back but I still haven’t even touched it. Right now I’m just hoping my courses are online at least for the first two semesters and thaat’s about all…I’m really very very beginner but hbu?

    Me? Gossip? Outrageous.

    Ha!

    I absolutely agree, but I can’t drive yet and our Internet is so prone to crashing online jobs aren’t generally available so I don’t have much of a say there until I can drive XD (although YES I keep telling my parents about LinkIn and my sister has a LinkIn account now and she’s about to graduate with honors and scholarships out of accounting and got a paid internship from what was supposed to be a free internship and now I’m on a completely different rant bragging about my sister) I mean what’s so important about wasting two years of your life acting like the world acts like a piece of theoretical knowledge?
    Yesyesyes! I need to go into animation I have so much I want to show visually and drawing just isn’t enough anymore! And web development, that sounds fun too, working the graphics and all.

    Mind as well start singing in the opera if I could. lol XD

    *choking with both mental images competing for which is the worse* bwahahahahaha I’m gonna die!

    Yeah, my mom got that for my brother because he loved the books so much. And he–(in Grumpy the dwarf sort of way)– was like “YES! WATCH THAT RIGHT NOW I NEED TO SHARE THESE STORIES WITH YOU!” to “*long rant on how horribly inaccurate those horrible stories were*” but it was great for my baby seven-year-old brother. Once I saw a T-shirt that said “Never judge a book by its movie” I think about that often.
    AND OH MAN THE HARES ACTUALLY SOUND LIKE THE HARES THAT IS SOOO HOW I IMAGINED THEM SINGING!!!!!!!
    And ugh yes, I think we tried satellite internet once and that didn’t do nada, but we’ve been told next year we’ll get cable so here’s hoping!

    Thanks, I’d always wanted to record and do some level of acting and singing ever since I was really little and when @o’brian-of-the-surface-world started a forum for audios I just had to give it a good go (plus had just been talking about McGyverism anyway so…)
    I just love singing and acting I can’t believe I ever pushed it to the side to get a “real” job attitude.

    Oh I definitely need a sturdy laptop I’ve got three brothers! I’m absolutely looking those up, I’ve heard Acer’s a pretty good model too coz they’re designed to get more implants or upgrades and personalizing. How well do you think the MSIs compare and contrast? I know I’ll need to be able to use Photoshop and Adobe Design for school if I get into this course (even tho both of those are ridiculously expensive, Affinity Photo and Designer and Clip Art Studio you said, haveta look at those too…) and Blender which notably takes up a huge amount of space and needs a good graphics card to run renders.
    Macs are simply evil, my sister’s just died a couple days ago on her last semester. And they deliberately make them impossible to repair with all the screws sized just differently enough you need a different screwdriver for every. single. one.

    Don't let the voices in your head drive you insane;only some of them can drive; most are underage

    That’s awesome! I need to work on becoming better at singing because I could sing all day long. I first need to work on my music theory, kinda rusty.

    The Acer Predators, Asus Rogs, and MSI in general are all good, powerful options. Like most laptops, they only allow upgrading the ram and hdd/sdd. Sadly, those graphic and cpu’s there to stay which is why I prefer a regular desktop workstation. They are a better long-term investment. I rate MSI at the top, Asus, and then Acer. I would say their higher end beefy gaming laptop structural quality is very similar. Though most can’t compete with MAC’s solid metal construction. My MSI has a RTX2060 graphics, 16GB of ram, with 500GB SSD and 1 T HDD. So pretty tough as they come. It is a mid-high level laptop.

    My sister Sarah has a decent small Lenovo touchscreen laptop that can run Affinity and Clip Art Studio on an external graphics monitor a wacom Cintiq 16 without issue even though it has half the specs my laptop has. Adobe design products are worth using and learning if you can get them on student discount or included with course because they are industry standard. Affinity suite is the closest competitor and uses a similar layout to that of photoshop and can use apple plugin and assets too.

    Clip Art is super nice because it has built in wooden dummy like model poser that you can then use for your character without having to draw the body and it is designed specifically for character illustration. If you get the pro version, it will also include manga/comic designer/webtoon designer too. I do prefer Affinity more than Adobe because they are only $50 and sometimes $25 when on sales for one time purchase, no sub needed. I hear they have about 85% of the tools photoshop has.

    She’s a genuinely kind person if you don’t make her mad. In fact, she’s very protective of everyone she sees as weaker. She’s clever, confident, incredibly determined and would burn the world down for anyone she loves.

    Your character is awesome too. I see a lot of similarities with both of our princesses.  Especially with genuine kindness, definitely if you don’t make her mad. XD Mine sees everyone as her family and has a hard time rising up to her actual place of leadership over them as she grows older.

    I’ll stop now or I’ll keep talking about them constantly XD

    Yes definitely XD
