Title: Character Voices
Post by: KarmaLarma on Sep 02, 2015, 04:43 PM
I was wondering how many people on here put a lot of thought into how their characters' voices sound. Whether they have a description for them or a voice claim for them.

For Conway I picked young Michael Crawford. Conway has a sleezy look but charisma and a nice, friendly voice helps him disarm people when he talks to them hehe. He's also got some slightly poor sound quality so when he talks, rather than sounding like someone talking in person it sounds like it's being played off an old record.

The first voice in the song.

And I think I mentioned Genie's voice claim on here before but it's Kristin Chenoweth, who is Glinda the Good Witch from the Wicked soundtrack. Genie worked in theater before becoming a hero so the singing voice works well for her but she also has a high, bubbly voice. Also why I've got a picture of her in the Good Witch dress somewhere hehe.

AH YESSSS. Little headcanony things are my favorite

For me Jiko's is Aubrey Plaza. this probably comes as little surprise but that just means its fitting right
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmmB9DGKqbE


I picture Audrey's as Bridget Hoffman, especially for her role as Belldandy in the A!MG movie.

It took me a while to really settle on an a voice for Wizzie but the closest I've ever got to (exisisting actor wise) is the character Kelly Bailey from Misfits. At least to get across the rather harshness of a rougher English accent and more northern.

Goodness, I have never thought of that.

I guess I pictured Izanami with Stephanie Sheh's voice. Specifically, her voice as Haidee from Gankutsuou. As for Gossamer, sadly I have absolutely no idea who I'd picture for her.

EDIT: Actually, now that I think about it, I think Claire Guyot's voice would suit Swan.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5KRPBFIboU

Claire's voice there as Ariel is what I pictured on Swan, except for the singing parts.

In the animations of g&r Ive done before Gwen was voiced by my friend caitie, my friend Paige, and my friend hobbitastic... And regi was always voiced by my buddy Seth.

But if Gwen&Regi were ever a real cartoon I think Patrick warburton would have to be the voice of regi.
Pitched-up Paige would still be Gwen I think- http://gregly.deviantart.com/art/Gwen-and-Regi-Lip-Sync-368652549

Hard question, given that Summer isn't human.

Though, to be fair, voice of Glados (I forgot the name of an actress, shame on me) would fit her nicely.

I figured I'd get this out there just because I love thinking about character voices a lot, but this one was super clear to me.

When doing my 24 hour comic there was only one voice I could hear the entire time while making Roboface. When writing him I consistently just heard Jim Carrey the entire time, in particular Ace Ventura more than anything haha. So...

Roboface - Jim Carrey (https://youtu.be/e_GSSTfwJjA?t=1m42s).

Shina was a bit harder since I didn't have a voice really for her in mind, but I would probably liken her voice to that a slightly higher pitched version of Ryuko's voice from the english dub of Kill La Kill.

I finally found a voice that I feel suits my idea of how Cameron/Bartender sounds.  Avi Kaplan's (from Pentatonix) normal speaking voice is pretty much right there, just maybe a little more clear and less nasal.  I always thought he'd also be a halfway decent singer, so I find it a little funny I accidentally found a singer for it

This is so cool! I love pulling everyone's design sheets up and listening to the voice clips; gives a whole new life to the character!

When not speaking, the best I can equate to Emmelia's voice are a combination of the Silent Hill nurses (http://"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVtDhd26420"), and Hudson Leick, bested noted as Callisto from Xena: Warrior Princess. Higher-pitched, sometimes airy, a whole lot of weird grunts and mostly random shrieks especially when on attack mode.

Frank on the other hand kind of has the same thing going on as Batman: Dark Knight Rises's Bane, but with an Austrian accent. Only thing I've come across that I can think of at the moment, is the male voice in Krystal System's Master and Servant cover (http://"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwXOR9i-FIo") (0:18).

As for that "Man Meat" of a dude Ozias I'm 85% sure I'm going to submit to Void next, he's real easy. Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden (http://"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvtUrjfnSnA") from Fight Club, the same character who unfolded the remainder of the Ozias's construction. Brad Pitt's voice in general works for Ozias, but Tyler's kind of strangely harmonious inflections while being incredibly energizing to listen to, are key in Ozias's portrayal.

I think a lot about random, stupid shit with my characters, and obviously get a lot of inspiration from movies.

Ah I'm super bad at these cause I always have about 20 different ideas of what a character should sound like Plus I'm just super bad at celebrity names but I think these works! I think, when I picture Abby, I get a real Leah Clark vibe? There aren't too many clips of her just talking online but I found a couple so you can get a general vibe of how she sounds. The first one is from a demo of all the voice actors but, I cut to her part and the second is video that is a compilation of various voices she's done. Still get more of a Rubi voice but hey, options are rad!

https://youtu.be/EVN6yu16Ra4?t=2m56s
https://youtu.be/BVASYp_6kI8?t=1m3s

Maybe a mix of the two? ; v; this is why I don't like deciding things.

Its kind of a debate with me about The Fool considering how much of a dark character she is and well into her twenties so its probably logical to give her a deepish kind of voice but I still favor giving her a pretty high and even teenage sounding voice. Basically saying how her voice never aged from when she was a teenager basically. The high pitch in her voice doesn't really show unless she's being hysterical and emotional.

I mainly use Sarah Hyland as her voice claim, especially after seeing her performance in SVU but I'm also liking Im Soo-Jung's voice after rewatching 'A Tale of Two Sisters'.

Oh holy crappers! I thought I was completely alone on this whole your characters have a voice rather than just text and trying to imagine what they sound like. Because all of my characters have a voice and I know many many bands to give examples of what each of my characters sound like. I'm sorry some of these bands are foriegn not in English but I think it's ok because they're just examples right? My character Lurriax Gavolor sounds like this guy in Das Ich VNV Nation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bzIUCJLD5c, and this one too here same band Das Ich https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMuNv4yIPPk hopefully these links actually work because I don't know what I'm doing, I'm just guessing on how you do links. Bahn Rue Kahone (this character I soon will be submitting hopefully this week) he would sound like this, you guys don't have to listen to the whole 13 minute video because that's a bit long don't you think?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2QBPM9cX6s. Rue Bannue Kahone another guy sounds like Mo Do, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-m4DcPOlXQQ, Kraxis and Lullia Hrached sound like these two in this video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTqCGXQdVsI, Kraxis is a dragon man thing and looks mothing like the guy in the video and Lullia is the girl though she's a snake like entity in my comics not human. Ha have not posted any characters nor any comics of mine yet. But yeah my characters I mention here hopefully will come out sooner than later. Bahn Rue Kahone will be the first one out because I am currently working on him. The thing about videos and voices is that you sometimes can never find the right voice for your character but only the closest examples you find. Sucks sometimes but it's alright. Well I'm going to stop here for the moment for now because I got a bit tired here. Too many things at once right now. But later I'll continue if anybody's interested but if not I'll stop here.

But yes having a voice for your character is awsome! You can't deny it it's so cool. Your characters seem pretty interesting, Conway looks like he'd win over Bahn easily because Bahn just will let it happen, not try to resist unless he knows he's going to get killed by Conway. Would Conway hurt anybody? I'm just curious. I'm going to take a look at your character to get a better view.

Hello, I get inspiration from music, movies, shows, books, and comics so I am all over the place. When it comes to most of my characters I use music to represent what they sound like I take a movie or show clip if I can't explain it in words or pictures corectly. If I want to show an example of how they behave and sound. I tried clicking on your links but none of them work so I'm kinda disapointed and a little mad because I really wanted to see them but it's ok. I know a lot a lot of music, so much that it will be coming down in a huge list so I can get whatever examples I want because I listen o a lot of different genres of music.
