On and off in the last while, I've been thinking of/dabbling in voice acting. However, I didn't think I really had the voice for such things, so I waited. While I waited, I tried to practise different voices (not really different), mostly in growling/evil stuff. I've definitely gotten better, but I'm still miles behind some of the other stuff I find. And, my deepest growls still aren't very good.
Anyway, I took some old lines I wrote for a unit called the Kiar Craza (Killing Claw) and tried to voice them today. Afterwhich, I did some minor editing.
I wish to show the fruits of my efforts here, in hopes of acquiring more insight as to how I can better do everything.
Presently, here are some notes I have made:
-I'm basically a complete neophyte;
-I probably have a bad mic, but it's the best that I have presently (it's still really bad; it came with Rock Band lul);
-my sister was asleep, so I had to go into another room to record (which seems to have been a good thing, since the other room is all cushiony and carpeted and shit, which I read is supposed to be good because sound waves don't come bouncing back - however, I don't think I got good positioning in the room, thanks to the length of the cable for my mic);
-I didn't have a pop screen;
-I did a pretty bad job at holding the mic at a proper distance;
-I'm still a little sick, but this shouldn't have had much of an impact;
-MORE PLOSIVES PLEASE;
-I'm not sure what else.
Here are the lines I used.
-WAT:4 was terribly done. Sorry.
-MAD:3 was terribly done. Sorry. (I'm usually good at mad laughter.)

With a few edits:Kiar Craza Lines v1.1.flac.7z
Hopefully, I get better (skill-wise, health-wise).
