:star: Interested in reading a graphic novel potentially coming out later this year? Keep reading! :D

Alrighty! So unfortunately I have a lot of things I want to do, and relatively little time to sort it out and do them at the current pace I'm working on.
So I figured I needed to really just sort it all out and I thought it'd be n to keep everyone updated as well as myself!
I'll probably be posting short updates on my twitter every so often and not here ->CapukatTwitter
But as for the rest :3
----------------

*In no specific order* Will update more if needed.

Website: Capukat.com 
  • I'm working on the commissions page atm (www.capukat.com/#!commissions/…); and in a little bit I'll open Beta commission slots as in I'll be testing out how the app works on my site! Watch out for those special slots! :)
  • Any suggestions?!
  • Feel free to look around my site though, test links etc! Feedback is more than appreciated :D There are a lot of blank pages now but I'm working on making sure this comes out easily navigable
  • Ooh and feel free to fb/google+ like my site! All the support means a lot ! ^-^ My twitter is also linked there along with other social icons in the footer-- feel free to suggest things about that too.
  • As for everything else, I guess that's it now//all I can think of! :3 As per usual, smaller updates will be in my Twitter as mentioned a few times above!
AnimalAwareness 
deviantArt:
  • I'm not opening commissions until SUMMER VACATION, so around end of May or beginning of June, but I'll see how busy finals makes me lol! :) //crosses fingers I can be exempted from some.
  • I'll be working on my page too! I should probably get myself:
    1. A few new journal skins
    2. Proper page layout & backgrounds + images
    3. A real good gallery organization system and CSS. o____o
    4. Time
  • And comments and all that are the usual, I'll do my best to reply in a timely manner but I'm afraid I'll be a little bit on the busy-swamped side...

Last but not least.. GRAPHIC NOVEL! I've always received such lovely feedback (thank you!) on what character designs and backgrounds I have so far so I figured this would be nice >~<
  • Surprise surprise! :3 I'm releasing a novel THIS YEAR (at least I'm 99% sure). A completely new one and mostly so I can really experience just everything from the work load to really organizing everything. But this depends on how successful *points above* all /that/ is. Although this would be among my top priorities!
  • The topic and all that for now is kept secret for the most part until I really work it out. By this summer if pages haven't been release, I should get concept work done!
  • Whether or not I'll get it published depends on popularity but so far I'm having pretty good hopes for this one haha! It's animal based, and I figured I should start with my comfort zone so dogs and cats. A more sweet story than anything too fantastical or complex, I hope you all will like it! It'll be 3 books at most, and no more than 100 pages per book. Hopefully 3 pages released a week but we'll see :D
This brings me to the topic of Youtube and ANIMATIONS project! (so I guess graphic novels wasn't last lol//added this last minute)
  • I will be working on animating a few if not all my novels! Haha. I've wanted to be a novelist for so long, initially an animator but I really don't think I'd fit in with Disney and their style of art so I figured I could try doing a little of my own! And become a self sufficient graphic novelist and therefore my own personal animator xD
  • I have a few friends interested in volunteering for voice acting so far :D Unfortunately.. I have no funds for any salary so if you're a professional voice actor I would love to hire you if I could "hire" /sigh/
  • So yea! I'll be starting with animations, that basically represent chapters in the novels! Probably about 10 min episodes I'm aiming for (nothing's set in stone yet haha..), and I'm working on composing my own music already (playing the piano for like 8 years now so I might also incorporate classical music since that's like free of copyrights haha)
  • But yea! If anyone has any animation tips or links to tutorials/videos that helped with lip syncing or anything (I'm using Anime Studio Pro 9, and maybe Flash CS4), feel free to link, much appreciated!!! >~<
  • Voice acting tryouts are later.. first I have to actually start my first novel hehe!
  • As for mini-practice ones, besides speedpaints and narrated videos I'll try to make (since I find those easier than making tutorials//maybe I'll do both), I'll probably do short comedy-oriented animations lol xD Starring...my youtube cast! I have designs planned out for a lot of them since I'm keeping them very basic, simple, yet recognizable ! But of course, Capu and Kiaro (and even Winter, etc) definitely star in them xD! I'll try to find good prompts and ideas later :giggle:
And that's it!

Thank you all for taking the time to read this-- let me know what you think haha! :D

-Capu :heart:

Good luck Capu ;w;
And yeah animating is serious work not easy at all.
Maybe try doing the comic and making some parts animated in a way like homestuck?
Idk how to explain it ;w;
Plus I've been wondering if you know really good techniques for practicing anatomy and how to see it clearly. Please help me if you can. But I understand if you can't ;w;

I go on Twitter so infrequently that that stuff will be missed by me, but I will watch for updates here! And I can't wait to see your Graphic Novel, especially the way you describe it here: a sweet story involving dogs and cats--right up my alley! Especially from you, Capu! And I subscribed to your channel on YT--so future animations/speedpaints/anything else, I will see in my inbox...Very cool, and as I said elsewhere, so busy!

I'm in more or less the same situation as you at the moment! School, exams and homework all getting in the way of things I actually want to do. I have a list of artistic to-do's as long at my arm -_-' Sadly the first two months of my summer holidays are completely booked up so I still won't have any time!
Once again, good luck! ^_^

My absolute favorite program to animate with is Photoshop Elements 8. It's completely smooth if you animate blinks with 5-10 frames (depending on your eye style, how complex it is) but Flash is great too. If you have any questions about animating feel free to ask me~! I've been animating for a while now. It's fun, but time consuming. Make sure that you're willing to put in a lot of time and effort to it, aswell as actually animating what you want! <3

I use my own mouth to get the lips right. As for lip syncing, just watch it over and over again... until you know the moment to jump in while the animation is playing.
