This is a decent demo. It's short, sweet, and to the point on what you can do.
The first voice felt really weird. The delivery felt a bit forced and the aging of your voice needs to be a whole not more stronger if you're gonna do an old man voice. Whether it being exaggerrated or realistic, doesn't matter. Age your voice up, and put more energy into it. Most of all, projection is everything with both voice acting and acting. In other words, be a bit louder when you do certain voices. In the case for your old man voice, keep the same volume more or less, but put more shake and possibly even replicate vocal nuances in an elderly man's sound.
Shake your voice up when trying to sound old, it sounds way better when you do that. Especially when exaggerating it.
The second voice definitely needs more energy, and feels too close to your normal voice that you show in the beginning. And you are way too quiet, and the tone of your voice really doesn't fit the background music that you chose, making that portion have a whole lot less impact. Don't be afraid to get loud, or get energetic vocally for characters. Cause it feels like you're holding back your voice almost.
Third voice is really great. I absolutely love it. It's a really chilling, yet beautifully performed portion of the demo, and shows off your dramatic voice acting damn well. So already in this demo, I can tell your better for dramatic voice work than you are comedic. That ain't a bad thing, but it won't hurt to practice comedic voice acting for more versatility in your voice acting. Your dark, deep monologue on the third voice really is nailed brilliantly. It's a really good voice for dark monologues or noir narration. Good stuff, dude!
Now your fourth voice feels really forced. This one really needed more loudness from you. More power from the diaphragm. And making use of all the gravel from your throat is important when doing a demon voice. At first, I legit thought it was supposed to be an orc, and it confused me. Because you're doing a demon, don't be afraid to perform some demonic laughter, or really just bring out the most fucked up voice you can muster. There's more to voicing a demon than just clenching your adam's apple. Practice it intensely. Study up on demon voices from the new Doom, and keep it up. You have potential and it shows here.
I could probably one day use you for a dark monologue cause you're fantastic at that. You're good at bringing your voice lower (not super low, but low while not being forced or cringy with your vocal range). Voice acting is a lot like art. You keep practicing, and you are one step closer to perfection.
It took me freakin forever to get it "just right" for me, and finding a comfortable place for my voice, but I hope you pick it up quicker than I did! Good luck, my dude.
Holy shit, thank you. Seriously I wasn't expecting this level of a response. Very detailed, very easy to understand, really makes me want to get back and practice more. I really appreciate the time you took to analyze my voices, and it makes me wish I put that much thought into them when I did it. I see that's what it takes though.
Thank you again I'll definitely be practicing some voices before posting anything new.
This.... I like dis
Heh, not bad, man! This feels a little lacking and raw without the vocal harmony and layers. Your singing voice needs more practice, too. Your voice very nearly went weak at a few points of this, where you had to go higher, but you got through the higher points of the song vocally very well!
Hell, I had no idea you actually sang, so this was cool to listen to! Not bad, dude!
Yup, I sing! :) I really appreciate that critique too!
This is amazing. Too amazing. Every single line here was gold. Solid gold, just like my dick.
Cheers, loves, Overwatch is nearly here!
Goddamn, this poem 'tis indeed had me riveting in a direction that can be assumed to be laughter! Or could it be'eth the feeling of hype? True, and utter hype, thou.
The hype fills me with a great urge to play Overwatch and jerk off to Shadman's artwork. In that order. Not at the same time! What are you on about!?
After quite a while of watching cool people play Overwatch, 'tis my timeth to play upon the game, with my di- I mean, controller in hand. And that depends on the mighty gods of controller support. Overwatch, it is time for me to come to you. But not, however, in the sexual way, as it was when me and Gianni first saw you.
Good shit, mate. It's Overwatch time at last.
I mean hell there's nothing in the game stopping me from doing it. Especially if you play Bastion, because you'll only need one hand in turret mode. Should we start calling his sentry configuration "Configuration: Masturbation"? Hm. Will workshop it.
Needs more fucking animalistic shouting of the name "PECK PEEEEEEECK" over and over again. But goddamn, that ending was fucking so much yes I could not comprehend it
Buying all of the DLC, including Season Pass and collector's edition recording of the voice actor for Peck telling you to go fuck yourself and that you wasted your money on worthless bullshit. Hahah! That Peck sure is a funny one!
I don't even know why I write scripts when your reviews are gold enough to record <3
This is legit the greatest demo reel I have heard in all my time listening to awful demo reels. This is a demo reel that simply does not give a shit about anything.
This demo reel is that nihilistic dude that just sort of hangs around and awkwardly farts in the corner. And I love that. Usually I'd criticize a demo reel, or even scoff at a demo reel that feels its lengths past a minute long, but goddamn what I got past that is something that left me longing for more. As a voice actor who has only started a year ago, this is something I needed.
I found myself crying at the beauty of how amazingly well-constructed (or rather, not constructed at all) demo reel. And plus, both of our demo reels are not working off of a script and were lazy as shit. Can't believe I only just listened to this now.
Legit tho, this is fucking hilarious shit mate. I'ma use you for voice acting at some point, man! I'll message you what it's about when it's ready to be voiced.
Wow that's seriously one of the nicest things anyone has said to me online. Thanks.
Also I cannot wait to voice something for you and terribly disappoint in performance. Here's to burning bridges before they're even constructed <3
Wow, you have a really great voice! You are able to do a pretty amazing job at delivering a strong, yet subtle narrative performance.
One negative I guess I could point out about this narration is the obvious little hum of your computer fan, and another negative point is the mouth sounds that are very clearly audible in this recording that you could've cut out, but these are small nitpicks.
Great voice work! For a guy just starting out here, you have promise and real potential! Good stuff! :D
Thanks, I really appreciate the positive feedback! One more noteworthy nitpick about this recording is that it isn't exactly my original reading, and I took a lot of inspiration and outright copied the intonation of a few lines from Ron Perlman. I guess I was too tired to hear the computer fan haha
I'd buy that for a dollar.
I don't think you said "Pass the whiskey" enough, man. 0/10
Ye this is some good stuff, man.
