Kiss Kiss (Bang Bang)

I just spent a good week pulling audio on the voice actor sessions. And, you know, I can’t say much (because it’s secrets all the way down), but I believe I can say this much… there may be some really good outtakes and bloopers in there. I can’t say what will be done with them, if anything… I’m just saying that they exist. But just keep that between you and me.

Okay? friends???

And this is great! Because of the donations we got from our fans, we didn’t have to check our watches and tell our VAs, “Hey, we can only pay you for an hour. Just read through the lines real quick.” Instead, our VAs got to experiment, suss out the right reading for the line, and yes, even goof around a bit. They sound amazing.

Which is why you should continue to donate! Not just to fund the project but also so we can keep paying artists what they really need to fine-tune their craft. Also, we’re still trying to get to that last stretch goal. A music video featuring the amazing musicians, Sepiatonic.

That’s right! I led with the donation button this time. It’s a new era!

Often, I’ve said that musicians are the greatest of all artists because music greases the wheels of creativity.

Speaking of, here’s the Lackadaisy’s own band! Personally, I’m a fan of Sy. He’s like the A. J. McLean to Zib’s Kevin Richardson. What is Rocky, then? Nick Carter?

Now is probably the time to admit I don’t actually know much about the boy bands or the Backstreet Boys…

And just a lot has been done on the art side. Some of it exciting and some of it bizarre. Take a look-see!

That Rocky lamp image may be cursed, but Nico saying “A/S/L” makes my skeleton want to leave my body

And here’s what the polished backgrounds will look like. They got vegetation. They got gravestones. They got lighting! (preliminary concept)

Another step closer to what the final film is going to look like.

The faces, too, are looking great. The animations are really going to feel alive once our animators really start going to town.

Probably my favorite facial expressions in the comic next to Rocky

Oh, and guess what? Newt made some sexy 3D shots…

…not of you, Mordecai! Get out here, you diva!

Actually, We got some hot photos of Serafine’s closest partner…

No, I’m not talking about Nicodeme either!

I’m talking, of course, about the lovely Boudreaux.

Bang bang bang
My love is as a fever, longing still
For that which longer nurseth the disease,
Feeding on that which doth preserve the ill,
Th’ uncertain sickly appetite to please.
My reason, the physician to my love, Angry that his prescriptions are not kept,
Hath left me, and I desperate now approve Desire is death, which physic did except.


You know when you see 3D models of a gun and suddenly Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” just makes perfect sense like she wrote it just for you?

There’s also this tommy gun, which is equally aesthetically pleasing (if you swing that way.)

And just to be clear: Real guns are dangerous. But fictional guns are “dangerous” but also safe because they’re fictional. So it’s okay to make eyes at them.

Last but not least, we hosted another Shop Talk featuring the indomitable Worthikids, creator of Bigtop Burger and artist who once inexplicably predicted the end of Star Wars (proving again that comedians are actually prophets).

Anyway, I love you all! Take care and keep wearing your masks! Keep your nose to the ground so you don’t lock eyes with the Rocky lamp lurking over the horizon, always watching!

Abyssinia! :3
