THE CONTEST SUBMISSION IS DONE



Characters belong to their respective owners.

I'd like to thank everyone for the submissions! So many great designs in different genres!
I didn't know there will be this many who'd like to have their OCs join in the crowd~!
I mentioned in the previous journal entry that I will announce the submissions, but with this number of entries, I have to skip that part.

SO MANY ENTRIES!


When I initially held this mini-contest, I figured only a few will join in, especially that there are no prizes to be given other than seeing their OCs drawn and animated.
But you guys proved me wrong! There are exactly 313 submissions here! IT'S INSANE! I love you guys! I can't believe people are this kind and willing to contribute~!
But every time I look through these submissions, I can't help but feel sadness instead.

From all 313 OCs, only 15+ will be picked.

This is terribly hard for me, and I can't simply put all characters in the animation. I don't think there's any way of having that many in the crowd: it'll make the animation less pleasurable to watch. (Not to mention the insane workload)

I hope everyone will understand that only 5% will receive the good news.

JUDGING


The judging has been started. And as the director, I'm carefully looking through all the designs to decide who among them will join in Missing Halloween.
This will take 2 weeks, as mentioned in the schedule. (September 1 to September 14)
During this time, I will be checking the designs not only through the artworks given, but on how they will look when redrawn. (As seen above)

THANK YOU


Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you! Thank you everyone for participating and contributing to this little animation~!
I'm working hard on finishing it, and I'm doing my best to get this done by Halloween! And now with this much contribution, I'm expecting the credit roll to be long~



INTRODUCTION


Missing Halloween, an animation about two kids trick or treating, was previewed last year on Youtube:

However, the deadline was missed and was decided to remain its production on hold.
But not anymore, of course! Halloween is coming soon after all!


WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?


Are you looking forward to watching Missing Halloween?
Do you design your own characters?
Would you like to help with Missing Halloween's production?
Then this is your chance!!!

You can get your design featured in the animation Missing Halloween!


HOW???


In the animation, there's a part of the story where it features locals in costume giving candies to the two main kids.
This is where you come in!
I decided that instead of randomly designing these people, I can give my fans the opportunity to have their designs featured in the animation!
And if there are too many designs contributed, I can use the others as kids who Trick or Treat in the background!


SUBMISSION


Submit your own original designed character to the director himself: Mikeinel via note here in DeviantArt. (Possibly with a subject title: "Missing Halloween Submission")
And get a chance to have your design, re-rendered into the animation's cute-and-cartoony art style, appear in Missing Halloween!



REQUIREMENTS


-It could be an existing design you created before, even long ago, or a new one you made specifically for this contest!
-Only one design can be submitted per artist.
-The character must be a regular human. (Added) He/she can have additional parts such as animal ears, tail, wings, etc.
-Of course, you should be the owner of the character design.
-The character should not directly be based on any other existing designs.
-No nudity, gore, or anything that can be found offensive to most people.


SCHEDULE


August 23 to August 31:
Accepting of designs.

September 1:
Announcement of the submitted character designs.


September 1 to September 14:
Judging, sorting, and possibly re-rendered into Missing Halloween's art style.

September 15:
Announcement of the designs to get in the animation!


JUDGING


The submissions will be judged and sorted by the director himself!

The top 5 best designs will have the following:
Their character will be featured as one of the young adults giving candies to the kids, fully animated!
Their name put in the credits as "Additional Character Design"

The next 10 (or more) best designs will have the following:
Their character will be featured as one of the many kids in the background, Trick or Treating!
Their name put in the credits under "Character Design Contribution"


ALTERATION


In order for the character design to fit in the animation, your submission will have to be altered to accommodate the art-style and content, (Added) making the fantasy-like parts into costume. We're talking about kids in costumes, after all!
Example: Extended body parts such as animal ears, tail, wings, etc. will be redesigned into costume accessories.

Altering/redesigning will be done by the director himself.

Here are some visual examples:



AGREEMENT


By submitting your design to the project, you'll have to agree to the following:
-If your submission gets accepted to be featured in the animation, you will automatically give permission to let your design be used in the animation.
-(Added) The design you submitted still belongs to you, of course. You may use it to however you like for other purposes, it's your creation after all.
-The re-imagined design will be final and may not be edited when the animation is done.
-No additional rewards, payments, or requests can be made at any time, unless stated otherwise by the director.

-The schedule may possibly be changed at anytime by the director, depending on various situations. (I do hope it doesn't)


FINAL NOTE


If ever you wish to submit a design, then let me just say this in advance: THANK YOU!!! Thank you for helping out on this project!
Missing Halloween may not be a masterpiece, but rest assured, it'll be longer than Draw with Me.
It will be released for free only on Youtube, in hopes that this will be my next animation that isn't an April Fools or job commission~
I hope people around the world will enjoy watching it when it's done!


ON A SIDE NOTE:
To the people who have been reserved in my commission page, don't worry, you are not forgotten. But sadly, I have to give priority to other things at the moment. (And this could take months) Thank you for understanding.

A: Sad to say, no. My apologies.

My sister mogumogumogu and her boyfriend collaborated to created their very first short Filipino comic/manga and will be distributing it in Anicraze 3:

DILIM

Art by: mogumogumogu
Story and script by: Richie Hanzel Biay
One night, a guy met a girl in a white dress, only to wake up from a lovely dream with a broken bottle in his hand.

I've seen her work on this for almost a month, and because of tight schedule, I lend a hand in a few things. (like toning and background drawing)


Anicraze 3 is coming up tomorrow in Baguio City, Philippines.

I was invited to become one of the judges for the art contest category!

To those will be attending:
Kita kita nalang!
It's been years since the original OuO was created.

Get it for iOS here.

Many have requested a port for it to Android, but sadly, I never had one of my own to create the port.
And I intend not to update OuO for the older iOS devices, since updating it will mean limiting the app to only run with the newer hardware.


Today, :iconelpatrixf: have created an OuO app for Android based on the one I made!

Get it for Android here

It's hard to say "port", since from what it looks, it's better than the original OuO!

Thank you elPatrixF!


On a side but related note:
1 1/2 years ago, OuO was meant to have a sequel: OwO
It was meant to have many features and junk, but as development progresses, the end result ran poorly on mobile devices, so I halt the project.

To make the project not go to waste, I edited it and made it into a simple web player, for those who don't own iOS or Android devices: (It may contain glitches, like the nose not working)

Play it now here



That's 3 different versions of OuO for everyone to enjoy~!
To be honest, there's nothing but job.

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Here's a random drawing for the empty space instead:


Official Page Link

2nd Annual Komikon Baguio's Eksena ng Komiks
is a huge upcoming comic event here in Baguio City, Philippines.

They also have an art contest in the event! Make sure to sign up online if you want to join in~!
Art Contest Link

And I'll be attending there to sit behind the table, borrowing a portion of the BAG-IW Art Society's table space. (The organizers themselves! It's so awesome of them to let me sit there with them ; u ; )
My plan is to bring a monitor, a laptop, a tablet, and animate there live. Same procedures and methods as how we do it on the job.
No commissions, sadly. And I'm not sure yet if I'll sell prints as well...

It pains for me to announce this, but due to the unstable condition of the laptop that's meant to be used during the event, I won't be able to go and do what I had originally planned.
I'm terribly sorry to those who were looking forward to see the live animation session, and I'm sorry to the BAG-IW Art Society for my sudden decision.

In return, I'm planning to do a Livestream session instead. Most likely in this coming Monday.

Again, I'm terribly sorry.
Summary of 2013 for Me:

-I have worked on and helped release two huge trailers for a planned anime series, together with Studio Kontrabida and Alter Ego Productions.

-And with a little team to work on it, it took an entire year to make a handful of minutes worth of footage.

-I have released Lie music video with Circus-P/VocaCircus.

-That was meant to be released a year ago.

-I have released a sneak-peak trailer of Missing Halloween with the help of sasokity

-And didn't make it in Halloween.

-We have left our old 2-storey apartment to live in a new, better apartment.

-But it's as small as a room.

-I have built my desktop computer with i7 3rd gen + Geforce GTX 770 + 32 GB RAM.

-And months later, i7 4th gen was released.

-And it's also slow.

-But not as slow as my previous i5 laptop.

-I finally got myself an iPad.

-But gotten too busy on job to use it.

-I have attended 3 anime/comic conventions.

-But forgot to take photos of pantsu of cosplayers.

-Because majority wears shorts.

-And I don't have a camera.

-I made 41 nasty artworks. (14 of them are animated)

-And one of them have over 8,800 notes on tumblr.

-I finally have my dreams come true, my very own 3D monitor.

-And now I want three 3D monitors.

-I got myself a bar of mozzarella cheese.

-And chewing on it is giving my mouth orgasm.




On to 2014!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!

(edit)

And Happy New Year!

Let's welcome 2014!



Thank you everyone for the best wishes~!!

We weren't able to make it by Halloween.
(Give us a month or two, hopefully it'll be done by then)


On another note:
Here in Baguio City (Philippines), me and my sis mogumogumogu will be attending the upcoming Anicraze 2:

www.facebook.com/events/154103…

We will be part of the judges of the "Anime Drawing Contest" activity.

And if the plan turns out right, I might do actual animation there, live.
(I hope it does, so I can also show a preview of Missing Halloween there as well)


Lastly:
Happy Halloween!
Nothing much. Just job.

And this too, for the aspiring artists out there:
USB-tan: Project Files by Mikeinel

And 10 days from now, I'll get older again.

And job.
Hello hello,

Things were pretty bumpy for me. I wasn't even able to play games or watch movies.
(except watching The Amazing World of Gumball S2 or Bob's Burgers. But those aren't even movies, lol)
This is because: for the past weeks, I became busy moving to my sis' apartment, in preparation for an office studio our boss recently rented for us employees to use.
I'm expecting things to be more bumpy and exciting, now that the work will not become online-limited anymore.

I can imagine it now: The ultra heat in Manila, the no-more-procrastination lifestyle, that part where I can't work with only my underwear, Oh god.
It'll be a huge change for me, but heck, it's gonna be awesome!
(right? right??? or is it gonna be like school all over again? lolol our boss is the teacher, our client is the principal, our colleagues are the classmates, and the janitor is the janitor)

So now that I'm living in a new place, we are yet to have a permanent internet connection for us to use.
And looking at the schedule, I think I gotta focus heavily on the anime project for the next months. Something that I can't freely show to the public.
(..... Except for those our bosses have already shown: instagram.com/alterego_ad/ )

Long story short, I won't be able to go on Livestream anytime now.
I could try going online here and there, but with a borrowed internet, it's expected that the video will be in low-quality, or to see those black screens of doom. Or even worse! The little chubby chubby dancing beside the Offline sign! Errmerrgerrd, nuuuuuu--you get the idea.

One last thing though:
I noticed that the Gamejolt page of deIz was receiving good comments. gamejolt.com/games/other/deiz/… It's really heart-warming to read these, considering that I see deIz as a oh-what-the-heck-lemme-try-making-a-visual-novel-because-i'm-super-inspired-by-Katawa-Shoujo game.
Story writing isn't my expertise, sadly. Or at least, those with dialogs. It's the huge factor of why I canned deIz 1.5. (And besides, if you google it and look for various reviews, you can see a handful of negative reviews too, lol)

And so, I want to thank everyone who played and enjoyed reading it~!


And that's the end of my journal entry. Thank you for reading!
PS: Lilian's name is Anne now. Haters gonna hate D< If there are haters to start with, lol.
To be honest, nothing much aside from work and job and work and job. Same as always.

But today, I am given permission to say what project I belong to atm.
What exactly is this "job" I kept mentioning for the past months:

Abu Dhabi's first anime has revealed a 1-minute trailer back in April:


I proudly want to say I'm a part of the team behind it.

Studio Kontrabida, the studio behind the game Last Class Heroes, have invited me back in December to join them and help work with an anime in partners with Alter Ego Productions.
And of course, I accepted the offer. And it's been a blast since then. (cliche line, but really, it's an awesome work)
Kontrabida Update: www.kickstarter.com/projects/k…

I've done various things for the project Torkaizer, ranging from storyboard, cleaning up 3d models, drawing in-betweens, to hand-animating crowd.
mogumogumogu handled some character designing, keyframes, and editing with various aspects.
eko999 handled various mech designs.
teygraphy did a handful of backgrounds. Many can be seen in the trailer.
luckykoifish worked on the poster.
-Wyn did various 3d models.
-And of course, boss Leo of Kontrabida handled some directing, organizing, and our awesome boss. Not to mention he's the one who invited me to this project.

There are many other people involved in the project, but I only know a few people, sadly.


So um, the reason why I'm saying all this is, well, I have no updates to say aside from work. *hides*

mikeinel-fanclub.deviantart.co…

Thank you everyone for participating and voting!
And thank you greenshadow622 for holding the contest!
Long story short: Job job job job job.
And sadly, no hand or blow in there. Boring. JKJKJK

But really, for the past months, i've been busy with job. We even had to rush a 1-minute anime trailer for 2 weeks at one point.
There were some days of depression too while I had to do job and attend some events, but everyone experiences that, so it's not a huge surprise or watevs.


And I attended 2 events for the past week:

I went to Summer Komikon and saw some of my co-workers there in person. Really awesome!
:iconteygraphy::iconeko999::iconluckykoifish:
We even had the chance to play the 1-minute trailer in the projector of the convention. Heheheheheh.
We all orgasm'ed, rofl

And I went to Maid 2 Travel. I became a part of the event's art contest judges. It was hard to look through the artworks, considering there were many great ones.
Aside from that, it was fun (and really surprising) that I met many fans there. (I rarely meet fans IRL)
Thanks for the warm welcome, guys! I hope you all like my quick trad drawings I made as autographs!
Fail Autograph by Mikeinel

I guess that's all.
Fun and joyous times, depressing and regretting times, it all ends to one thing: Back to job for me.
Thanks for reading!

Not to forget MikeInel-FanClub's contest!

EVENT-TAN



(Characters belong to the respective artists of the first 5 entries: fav.me/d5qryhx fav.me/d5qqb2s fav.me/d5pg0bo fav.me/d5r90j3 fav.me/d5rcini )

Based from the previous contest (Object-tan), they're continuing the saga by creating the Event-tan contest! It's where everyone is free to join and create the best design of a human form of an event.
It can be Valentine's Day, it can be Marriage, it can be a first kiss, anything that aren't considered actions, animals, humans or objects!

The prices are the following:
1st place: 2000 points + Commission Artwork by Mikeinel
2nd place: 1250 points + Commission Artwork by Mikeinel
3rd place: 750 points + Commission Artwork by Mikeinel

More information can be seen in the following links:
New contest? Yes! Event-tan, GO!Wow guys!
After the overwhelmingly positive response I've gotten yesterday on the question of the event-tan contest, I just couldn't help but make this official ASAP! So here it is! Officially announcing the winter 2012-2013 event-tan contest!
So, here's the rules: If you've got an idea... GO FOR IT! If you have any doubts about if your idea would be accepted or not, just ask here, and I'll be glad to tell you if it's ok or not.
So, first off... what IS an event-tan? Well, remember our object-tan contest from last summer? (If not, check out the old blog posts, and the submission folder.) Well, same concept, except this time, instead of anthropomorphizing objects, we're doing the same thing to events.
Now that we've cleared THAT out of the way... what IS an event? Well, quite simply, a little bit of anything. It can be Christmas or new year's, it can be the holidays in general, it can be birthdays, first kiss, the Mayan apocalypse (or just the apocalypse in general even), the winter sol
Happy new year! And a little update.So, a little late, but happy new year everybody! Hope it was a good one!
Green here with some news that's sure to make you all happy! But first, I want to say a few things.
First of all, I've received this question a few times, and I'll make this clear now. Mike Inel will NOT be drawing the winners of event-tan himself. It's unfortunate, but he's busy, and just can't make time for it. Please don't hold it against him. (Or me. Seriously.) THINGS CHANGED!
Second of all, I want to remind people that when drawing their event-tans, it is an EVENT that is being drawn, not an object. For example, someone asked me about first medal earlier, it is the event of winning/receiving that first medal that will be the focus of the drawing, not the medal itself. I would draw you all an example, but I suck horribly at drawing. Also, I wasn't specific enough for the time the contest ends in my last post. Nobody asked, but I realized it myself. I did say it was at the crack of midnight be

It has been running since December, and it had little activity since then. Hopefully, that will change soon.

I was recently interviewed by the lovely Saviroosje!

Interview with: Mike Inel Hi there
:iconsaviroosje:
I had a little interview with MikeInel:iconmikeinel:
First of all, who is MikeInel? If you never have heard of him, or saw his artwork, you surely miss something! MikeInel is a 24 year old guy who has a big passion for art and animations. He also makes some awesome games. What I like about Mike is his style, his concepts are wonderful and so deep. You can see he puts his heart in every drawing. If you are interested he also takes commissions a lot and has livestreams very often! So you can watch him work! Isn't that amazing!?
Mike is the maker of the famous animation, about a boy and a girl, separated by a glass wall: "Draw With Me."

Recently he had an "Object Tan" Contest. An Object tan is a character made from an object. (PS3-TAN, even Chair-tan, Fridge-Tan, Wii-tan and go on, haha)
The winner got an amazing animation made my him. The result is wonderful, I really let some tears seeing this. It has an amazing impact, on me



There hasn't been much updates yet. For the past month, I've been busy with job, and that's about it.
I'm trying my best to squeeze a few more time for other things as well, such as hobbies, social life, finance, etc.
(Much like how me and PuddingPie are in good terms now; doing random collab with ChuuStar recently; going back to finish an unfinished project; etc.)
Sadly, OuO sequel's progress will be paused until the other unfinished project is finished.
