Anime Face Modelling in Blender


A shortened video of me modelling the base for my 3D anime character. I’ve since then modeled much more details. I’ll be posting some progress shots in my next blog post.

Sonic Academy ANA Synth- Fixed The CPU Issue- ANA is Amazing!


FL Studio

A mastery in a title that sums up a post. I tried out ANA and had to buy it. I had it for one afternoon. It’s replaced Toxicbio hazzard for most parts. My only issue is crashing while going through the pressets but if you save in increments it’s not that bad. I saw in the forum that there’s updates coming, I can wait. It’s that good, the bugs don’t bother me. Anyway moving along.

The main problem I had was eating CPU BUT stupid me, it was a incredibly easy fix. In FL Studio I went to Options >> Audio Options. I went to Buffering and brought it all the way down to 47ms. Mine was on 97!! That is so high! No wonder it lagged so bad whenever I’d play with synths. Once I brought that down to my liking, not a problem at all. It’s running really smoothly and sounds amazing! Mostly I love the variety in the sounds and the sounds you can make! Finally I don’t have to aim for Refx nexus any more. It has for me personally all types of trance sounds I adore and beautiful pads. Enough to make you drool.

Installation was odd. On vista, installed great. On windows 7, it went to the same place, installed the same but FL Studio couldn’t find it. So I have to cut and paste it in to FL Studio’s VST folder, found it, works great. I’ve had this problem before on Window 7 though.

But I am happy! I’m sooooooooooo happy I found this! I’m going to have to flood my blog with all the annoying things I plan to make XD

Tired of the Now

So I was watching some Depeche Mode and came across this. I was born in 1988 so I’m not really that familiar with them. I went to check them out because of a joke made in an episode of American Dad. I enjoyed it a lot actually. I’ve grown tired of the music of today and excuse me but the whores one TV. For a few years now I have been listening to Japanese music and Korean Music. They’re cute in their pop and have a lot of energy and I never thought music of my time would all sound the same but it does to me at least so I switched to listening to music from other countries and I haven’t really looked back.

Lately however I am back into trance from anywhere in the world. I was pleasantly surprised by the improvement. A lot of young talent rising in the trance and techno world. I love it. Also soundcloud.com has proven to be a valuable source for music of all types. Heck I even found better dubstep on there than on youtube and it was mostly undiscovered artists. One I watched for a while go from small time to itunes and sales. It’s fun there.

Anyway this is more just a rambling post. I don’t wish to offend any one at all, just airing my thoughts.

Manga Magazine Submissions: Now Accepting


I am starting up a manga/comic magazine called Digital Heart. It will accept creators of all skill levels and the detailed and submission form can be found here:

I wanted to make this for a long time now and I finally gathered enough help to get things rolling. This is fairly open minded and I really hope that it does well. I plan to feature tutorials as well as writers. Not just all comic’s. I’m also willing to allow people to place ads for $0.50 per banner in the zine.

Inking In Manga Studio vs MangaLabo


MangaLabo beats Manga Studio hands down in speed and flow. ML flows as amazingly as Easy Paint Tool Sai. Manga Studio on the other hand has a very high ink line correction controls. MangaLabo has some correction that is good enough for the regular shakey hand but it could have a little more. But I’m not complaining. It’s still amazingly high powered with half the lag of Manga Studio. Either way they are both amazing and excellent programs. But MangaLabo is worth checking out. Definite try before you buy.

So here’s a quicky ink and tone fan art of my Saints Row 2 character mod of Boss and Carlos. Because I love Carlos T^T ❤
