Maaaan, my Cloud stinks :(

@Seymour It's a different take from what people normally associate Cloud's character with, but it's not bad. I thought you did pretty good with it.

Well this is it folks, it's been an interesting ride this "BTS" thingy (as I like to call it). It's been a lot of fun being able to express myself with a mic and at least share some of my talent with people of greater strengths! I am humbled to be in the presence of so many youthful and exciting individuals that share the same passion for Voice Over that I do! I need to get better so for now I give you what I considered my favorite and best take!

I picked the first challenge simply because I clicked with the character. I am not a fan of Final Fantasy so I don't know who they are and what not but based on the description and the fact that he had/has no voice.. well all the more reasons to give it a shot. To me he's a hero whose traversing through darkness with others telling him that there is a light out there but he refuses to look up until things are done as they should. Well... at least that's my take on those lines, look and feel of the character.

For Messycat -
I really enjoyed your performance for Paine! The voice was well done and fitting =) My only nitpick was the last line. The last line seemed over acted for pain! Rikku was different, the voice could have been higher and needed more energy to it. Rikku is very out there and full of emotion. Good job!

@MOM0KI thanks for the feedback! I'm surprised you found the last line over-acted. That seems to be the style in those games from what I've seen, but ok. As for Rikku, I could have made her voice higher but I guess I didn't because she is around 15, so not completely a little girl. I thought a voice too high would maker her sound too young.
Thanks again for your feedback though! Much appreciated.

@Messycat I mean, it seemed overacted for Paine, since she's more reserved and quiet. By higher, I didn't mean a lot, just a smidge (its probably just me, since I am 15) but she sounded to old for me (that's just me though~) Sorry if any of that offended you, if it did it wasn't intended and I'm sorry~

@MOM0KI no offense taken at all! Sorry if my reply sounded that way.

I'm not familiar with the character of Paine so your observation is probably better than mine for sure. And for the voice of Rikku, heh, well I guess you have a good comparison then! I was mainly going by my own cartoon voice experience. Was auditioning for an 11 year old character last week with a higher voice and I didn't want her to sound quite as young is all.

All good! Again, it's just really nice to get some feedback.
And congrats again for your win! You did a great job. ^___^
