... that I want you to watch! 


I just got back from me brother's wedding overseas - had an awesome time and it was great to finally see my bro taking the next big stage in life, looking forward to seeing his kids in the future!


Anyways I'd like to point out some really awesome Sonic Comic Dramas that got me through some of the homework I did for the Academy of Art university a couple weeks ago. I'm going to make a proper list a little later so that I can conveniently go to it during my times of tedious work! Be sure to check these out when you get the chance!


Darkspeeds' recommendations:


  • SONICPOLO23's complete set of Sonic the Hedgehog #215: Family Matters







    Star!  Darkspeeds favourite moments/things:

    Silver and Rotor fighting and working together moments, Sonicpolo23 playing as Sealia (!), Sonic and Guntiver's friendly banter (that laugh that Guntiver did after Sonic's comment, so natural), Sonic and Flip (loved that part when Sonic nudges to Flip the 'cold' joke and expresses friendly sarcasm to Flip's comeback). Mmichael154's performance as Sonic the Hedgehog.




  • DONNIEGIRL12's  SONIC UNIVERSE #17-18: The Tails Adventure







    Star!  Darkspeeds favourite moments/things

    Butter and margarine scene, Antoine and Speedy's voices (also performed by Mmichael154!), song choices such as the Windwaker track used when Tails wakes up with T-pup, TheMobian voicing as the avian minions (Starbucks moment was amusing! And it's a clever cliffhanger tool well utilized).  




  • DARKCLOUD1267's  SONIC UNIVERSE #9: Knuckles Returns





    Star!  Darkspeeds favourite moments/things

    OMG, that Knuckles voice!!! Sexy and in character (though I wish I could hear his max potential as Knux - like when he's in desperation/sad/really furious), great job TheSuperSubwayBros. Vector and Ray's one-on-one moments, Vector's voice (voiced by Tylersampsonis1) - in which inspired me to give Vector a proper go in my more recent SCD's. 




  • DARKCLOUD1267's  SONIC UNIVERSE #1: Living Weapons





    Star!  Darkspeeds favourite moments/things

    HappyAsianVA's narration at every start of Darkcloud1257's SCD's (makes me look forward to more in future!), Nanko-Yuri-Haruno's hilarious interpretation of Marine's Aussie accent, Shadow's overall performance (by Chris BDude), Tyler s EXCELLENT and DIVERSE song choices (Yoshi's theme! Omg. It worked extremely well!), HappyAsianVA's Asian interpretation of Coconut Soldier (it gets me everytime, I couldn't help but chuckle...!), Shadow the hedgehog's super long grunt at Marine - Mhhhhhhhhhhrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggghhhhh..!!!!!)




  • DARKCLOUD1267's  SONIC UNIVERSE #21: "Salida" (Departure)





    Star!  Darkspeeds favourite moments/things: 

    GIRL POWER!! Treasure Team Tango being a fan favourite (and this SCD really motivates me to one day finish mine, all the project files and voices are still sitting in the back-burner!), PrincessRil's overall voice work (who played as Amy, Rogue and Vanilla!), Cream's ADORABLE voice (by KeeataUrameshi) - I especially loved when she says: "Sorry mother!" (gets me every time, trying not to melt in cuteness when I listen to that!), Rogue and Amy going at it to each other - Amy losing her cool...! (it makes me feel like, grrr Rogue, that b**ch! XXXD).


And that's it! Tell us your favourite moments, talk about the comic and tell us what you liked about each comic drama project! A lot of effort has been put into each and every one of them and I share my thanks to the project directors, the voice actors and everyone else involved in breathing life into these already awesome comics from the Archie Publications team. Keep up the amazing work guys!

'EYO BRO. Thanks for the mention! I've heard so much from Tyler about how great of a VA and I am honored my preformance had pleased you so much (this is Chris btw) dispite the fact that you are a stranger to me. and I'm glad you get a chuckle out of the long grunt, totally came up with that one on the spot.

Aww no way! Dude! It's Shadow the Hedgehog! :D

Ha ha, my pleasure Chris, I've listened to that SCD almost over 10 times now and I've enjoyed every run of your performance as the ultimate lifeform. You gave him a slightly modified inflection to his voice that made it unique from the other Shadow's I've heard - more important the way you paced his dialogue. And that grunt... Ha ha, that's like forever ingrained in my head - in fact your avatar speaks for itself. 

Great job once again buddy!

MmmmmhmhmhmhmhmhmhmMMMMMMMMMMMHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHH!!

*then suddenly*

"A Chaos Emerald, you're willingly giving it to me?". Ha ha, what a contrast.

Silver's voice was a bit raspy too me. Maybe I'm just use to his voice Sonic 06.

"Weeee, I mean stop it!!!" This had me laughing

You and me feel the same about Knux's voice acting. Perfectly spot on. 8-)

And Shadow loosing his patience with Marine was priceless lol

Funny Story: That Starbucks thing was never supposed to be in the comic drama XP 
Back when I was making my Bean the Duck auditions, I started doing funny little improve lines at the end of each of my auditions, often if would be some sort of silly sketch I made up off the top of my head, just to provide the editor with a laugh or two after he's finished hearing my audition =P
Well, Trisha APPARENTLY decided that this one was funny enough to throw in at the end, and she didn't even tell me about it until after I had already watched the whole thing and done a double take at hearing it as the credits rolled XD It certainly was a surprise =P

Anyways. Totally cool to see you doing these shoutouts for the comic dramas, and it was a pleasant surprise to see the only drama I've ever participated in thus far mentioned here =P I'll be sure to check out all the other ones you've posted too, thanks Darkspeeds!

Oh, and you mentioned you've been trying to make your own comic drama for the Treasure Team Tango arc right? I was wondering... are you by any chance still looking for a voice for Bean? I have a Bean voice demo I recorded on Soundcloud that I can send you (him being my favourite character after all) if you are still looking for someone to voice him. If not, then its all cool, I just thought it would be worth asking about :3

Good luck on your upcoming Comic Dramas Darkspeeds! :la:

Heya TM! 

Your most welcome and dude your offer was much appreciated but the spot's already taken! I had already gotten recordings of Bean from another VA and I just can't wait to show it off - if only I got time to work on them. Probably in the holiday season I'll start working on it. ;)

Anyways do send me the link to your Soundcloud! Who knows, I may need you for Sylvanna in future!

Alright then, it was worth a try XP 
Can't wait to see the finished comic dub Darkspeeds =D And I especially can't wait to hear the voices you got for it X3

Ok :) I took the voice demo off of Soundcloud and put it on Youtube just today, so here's the link to the vid: www.youtube.com/watch?v=61X7Sr…
I'm planning on throwing up a few more voice demos soon on my YT channel, so hopefully I'll be able to get to those soon :la:


You're planning on doing a Sylvanna Dub too!? AWESOME! I will most certainly be trying out for that when the time comes :squee:

I had a listen through to your Bean recording - good job! He really is a favourite of yours ain't he? Keep at it!

And DUDE, I just listened to your singing works - that was unexpected, top notch stuff! What mic did you use and did you soundproofed the room/utilised a soundproof box over your mic during recording? You got a nice singing voice - nice work, I'm impressed! *thumbs up*

FritzyBeat Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Yeah, he is a favourite character of mine :)
Haha, thanks! I wasn't expecting you to check out my musical projects, but I'm really glad you enjoyed them

I use a USB Samsun Meteor Mic www.samsontech.com/site_media/… which I plug into my Mac Desktop computer.

Since I have nothing like a soundproof room or box, I compensate by covering up any hardwood surfaces in my room with blankets and such, which does a pretty good job of masking what is otherwise a very echo-y room =P I also record directly into Garageband, which provides me with lots of options for filters and things that I use to eliminate background noise and stuff, to help make my recordings cleaner and clearer.

I have different strategies for editing both singing and voice acting on Garageband, but I won't bore you with all the minor details :P Long story short, it really helps me get better quality sound for my acting and singing. :D

[LYRICS - Sonic, Shadow, BOTH]


You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you're miles and miles
From your nice warm bed
You just remember what your old pal said
Boy, you've got a friend in me

Yeah, you've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
If you've got troubles, I've got 'em too
There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you

We stick together and can see it through
Cause you've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me

Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too
Maybe
But none of them will ever love you
The way I do, IT'S ME AND YOU
BOY, and as the years go by
Our friendship will never die
YOU'RE GONNA SEE IT'S OUR DESTINY
You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
YEAH, YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND IN ME

Hey there TheMobian!

Yeah I've already complete the recordings for the animatic (both as Sonic and Shadow). XD

We'll have to do another duet of some sort in future. If you got an idea in mind please don't hesitate to let me know! *thumbs up*

Ah... I see. Thanks for letting me know what you use! A great mic from what I've read up on. Also I appreciate how you take the effort to soundproof your room and take the time to apply certain filters (carefully) to make your recordings crisp clean. 

So it seems that Garageband will only be available for Mac interfaces, not PC's like that one I'm using - via Windows 7. 

But yeah I was thinking...

Perhaps we can record a duet of some sort... Perhaps Shadow and Sonic singing to: "You've Got A Friend In Me" (from Toy Story www.youtube.com/watch?v=oB7Msp… but adding a hint of parody throughout. It's like Sonic's forcing Shadow to sing the song with him (probably Sonic's stolen his gun and won't give it back till Shadow sings with him). Shadow joins in, not so eager about it but towards the end he enjoys it and syncs with Sonic's singing. But at the very end when the song ends Shadow still decides to get payback and shoot Sonic in the head (slapstick style - where Sonic is show alive with a bullethole in his head/bandaged). Right at the very end we have Sonic sing with Knuckles for 2 seconds but gets punched instead for payback - ha ha...

But yeah just playing around with the idea for now. I was thinking you can Shadow the Hedgehog. Or you can give Sonic a go too. But yeah that's where I'm at for ideas - no guarantees this will happen so don't get too excited! lol XXD

There you go:

The voice demo includes the three main hedgehogs, so hopefully its helpful in deciding if I can actually play any of these characters XD

FritzyBeat Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Haha, that is a wonderful idea! XD Sounds VERY funny :P

If you ARE still looking for someone to do a duet with and haven't found anyone else yet, then I would be honoured to take part :la: If you have already found someone, then thats ok too XP

I will be recording a quick voice demo for Shadow, Sonic, and Silver right now. I'm not sure how a Shadow voice would sound, but if it ends up being any good I'll be sure to let you know XD

Also, thanks for the lyrics and link to the instrumental of the song :) Very helpful ;)

I just got back from class. Yeah dude I would love to do a duet or singalong to a Sonic level song with you but I think I went nuts and went ahead with the Sonic and Shadow thing! I badly wanted to see how I'd go with the two voices and so far the results are pretty damn hilarious!

For now I'm just going to finish off what I've started and will think of new ideas in future! I'll also go check out that voice reel of the hedgehogs in a moment! Thanks for posting that!

I watched the Tails one.  It was AWESOME!!!  But it did not complete the story though.

Even though that its not animated, of expert voice actors, its still really good and I want to see more.

These are some pretty good recommendations~ In fact, I'll be talking over as Bunnie in Tasha's Tails Adventure for issue 19. ^^ She also has plans to dub a short side story from Knuckles issue 27 (Mighty being reunited with Ray) that I also took part of~ Three guesses as to who I'll be voicing in that dub. XD

:icondarkspeeds:
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

Actually Ray is being played by the guy who's currently playing Shadow in our SonicComicDrama series~ I'll actually be voicing Nic XD Weird I know, but Tasha gave me some great reference to work on and it was fun to try voicing her. ^^

Sounds really exciting (and a lot of fun!) 

I absolutely love listening to VA's doing different voices especially when there is a quite a big jump in contrast - I mean from Shadow to Ray? Wow. Bad-ass to super-shy junior!

Ashie-Kins Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Yep~ He also does a pretty good Sonic too. I think he's been trying to be an understudy for the person currently voicing Sonic in our dub series. Overall, he's a really talented guy. He even did a read-out with me using the Dreamkeeper's story we've yet to dub. He did a fantastic job as the villain! So much so that those who were listening in were scared by him. It was great practice to prepare me for the actual dub. ^^

Prioritization is needed in life but at least you're now working towards getting a job you love which must be a step up from working at a casino although I'm sure it was still pretty good and you made the most of it.
