Wow, very nice!

I'll have to look through there in more detail- looks liked a lot of helpful tricks I hadn't figured out myself!

Looking forward to more!

Just curious though- roughly what age bracket are you in Erikari? I had somehow thought you were older/ 22-35, but you have a younger sounding voice- my wife does too (though you do sound a bit like Sakimi Chan- an artist who does a lot of patreon tutorials).

It doesn't really matter though, just curious- if you are younger, excellent job becoming a pro so fast! If not, you're lucky you have a young sounding voice xD


Also, thanks for sending out the email today about having the twitch stream and youtube videos on afterward (I never use twitch, but I know it's popular, so will be watching all the youtube videos). I check back on the spine forums once a month or so to get inspired, but haven't been able to dedicate the time to work on animation much :/ (but planning on an adventure game, so will have to catch up soon)

I'm happy you liked the video! I'm still getting down what to do for the next video tutorial since I'm showing a lot of the things I wanted to put in it during the stream :P

I'm 26! I'm a tiny person and it reflects in my voice °x° I hope it doesn't annoy you too much, (it sure annoys me, but I can't change it Q.Q)
