My one year anniversary on hitRECord was in September. It has taken me this long to put together my milestone tribute. I think it was worth it. My goal was to express gratitude for the site and the community and also explain why it means so much to me. Perhaps you will want to share this with friends and family who are not on hitRECord so they'll get a glimpse inside. A few notes:
Time -- This took me many hours to make, probably pushing triple digits, but I think it's particularly fascinating to factor in all of the time that the other artists invested into the RECords I REmixed. It must be thousands. How cool is that?
Gratitude -- I mentioned that I am very grateful for this site and for you all. I hope that I did not overlook any one at the mother ship in the homage sequence. My apologies if I did. I tried to get y'all in there! Also, a big shout out to tillycat for drawing my sidekick in this piece and spaceship for helping me find just the right music.
REsources -- There are 200+ RECords in the REsources. I tried to include REsources for REmixes but it's hard to dig so deep. Please let me know if I overlooked anyone. I know I missed a few. Also, the last 159 RECs are REmixed from my Christmas video and are tiny images flying through space. I can't guarantee that each one is visible but I did not want to leave anyone off the list. I'll be doing a REmix of that video soon, so you'll have another chance to see them.
Thank you for watching this short film. I hope you will enjoy it. I'm on Twitter @sethbang and I welcome you to subscribe to me here, too. You never know, I might do something else spiffy someday. Soon I will do one of those Q&A RECords that are so fun to read. I meant to do that today but I'm pooped.

Another addition to my roster of Edge Of The Universe Visuals. More of these to comes as well! Some that actually imply a transfer of information from one place to another, but I thought this looked pretty cool.
Note: I will probably always use KevinMaistros' piano track for these, because it fits so well.
ILLUSTRATORS: Please refer to these Visual Reference Notes when illustrating the Characters, Settings, and Props for the "Vinegar Short Film collab."

1080p, h264, 23.976, full credits (I'm planning on posting it to my vimeo page because I like how it came out, and I always do full credits when I do that).
I can upload a no credits version, but not now. later. I so didn't have time to do this today! >_<
I ended up being really inspired by the fact that my earlier versions reminded me of Portuguese mosaic sidewalks and Portuguese and Spanish Azulejo (painted tiles) Also, it's not entirely D'Noir. ;o)

"On the otherside of fear, I found a friend."
[About 45 seconds. It could use a little story VO and some music. Pretty please. :D]
I'm about 2 weeks shy of my one year anniversary on hitrecord.
This time last year, I never would have imagined a website would bring so much into my life.
But it has.
It gave me back my art, which I had let languish for about a decade. Looking back over my recs, I can't believe how much improvement I've made; how many new mediums and subjects I've tried.
I saw this great rec by Soju and thought, "I have to animate that."
I don't have animation software, I've never used anything of the sort but I worked with what I had (Art Rage and Windows Movie Maker) and ended up putting together close to 500 images for this little video. It took a few weeks and a lot of learning and isn't as smooth and neat as I'd like; but I did it.
The words "I can't do that" aren't a part of my vocabulary anymore (except singing, and you should be thankful for that). That's what hitrecord gave me, once I moved past my fear and gave it a shot.
And even greater than the thrill of learning and improving is the community. Cheesy as it sounds, it really is an amazing group of people we have here.
Thanks everyone, for being so supportive and awesomely freaky. Y'all never fail to inspire me.
Stay tuned; I'm saving up for real animation software.. my two year rec is gonna be amazing. :D
Here's is a remix of Eaneikciv's "A Lullaby for Decomposition". Excellent track with great remixing potential.
Let's do a RE: SPACE Q&A about whether you prefer conversing with others inside or outside of your personal space. Contribute your RECords here: http://www.hitrecord.org/collaborations/7455
QUESTION: Do you prefer to interact with people outside of your personal space - like through the screen of a computer? Additionally, what do you get out of being in the same physical space as someone else as opposed to interacting with them through a screen?
There have been some really great Q&A's RE: Space, and I want to get your reactions to one in particular from our recent Live Venue Shoot at The Masonic Lodge. Sarah, a member of the audience, talked about how she doesn't like having anyone in her personal space, but she can connect with people online or on Tv when they are behind a screen. I'm curious what your reactions are to this.
Thanks again <3
This story is about MoonBoy trying to catch stars to dress his galaxy, problem is, he doesn't have bait, but MoonGirl comes to his rescue and brings his bait. I chose hearts because stars are hot balls of gas so I thought maybe they would be attracted to warmth. So I associated hearts with warmth that attracts the stars.
Just something fun. :) I haven't drawn like this in a while.
I just wanted to draw something like this after seeing rewfoe's drawing and having recently rewatched some of my favourite Miyazaki films. Also I attempted to redraw Antoana's wings but they are nowhere near as amazing and I kinda gave up halfway through. You really need to see these wings. They're so detailed (and amazing).
