Color Monkey CrazyTalk Animator 3 G3 Characters Now Available for Your Next Production

Reddy the Color Monkey. Now available.
Reddy, the Color Monkey, is now available to buy in my Reallusion Marketplace store for your next CrazyTalk Animator 3 production.

It's been a long journey that began way back in 2011, when I first tried to create him as a CTA, G1 character. Then again in 2014, I attempted to create him as CTA2, G2 character.

Each time the process or life in general got the better of me, but with CTA3's G3 character rigs the process of creating characters has become a lot more achievable and, most importantly, less tedious (though I'd say it's still challenging if you want your character to be fully featured)..



Reddy is available in two angles, Front and Side (a.k.a. 315 degree) views. Both angles feature a full range of hand and face sprites, as well as additional front facing feet sprites. Both are compatible with CTA3's facial puppeteering system and G3 human character motion library.

Reddy's Tail.
Also available is Reddy's Tail, which is a G3, Spine Actor. Just position where you want Reddy's tail to be then link it to his hip bone and it will move with him. The tail its self needs to be animated independently of Reddy, which you can do either by using existing motions for spine characters or manually key framing it yourself so it can match Reddy's movements precisely.

Watch the video below to see a demonstration of Reddy's features.



Each view of Reddy can be trialed for free and purchased separately. If you want his tail you'll need to buy that separately too.

in my store.
Reddy is also available to buy as a pack that includes both views and his tail at a significantly lower price than if you were to purchase all three separately.

If that wasn't enough, you can also purchase Reddy's brothers, Super Bluey and The Great Greensbury, either as separate components or in complete character value packs just like Reddy's.

Monkey Ultimate Pack
If, for some crazy reason, you'd like to own all my color monkeys, then the Ultimate Color Monkey Pack is for you. Not only does it contain every view for all three monkeys, and each monkey's tail, but the total cost is about 47% cheaper than if you were to buy each monkey in his own individual pack.

Personally I'm looking forward to finally creating some animations with my own G3 characters. If you do decide to purchase my color monkey's I'd really love to see how you use them. Maybe I can even feature your work in this blog.

If you need some monkeys for this classic pose,
my color monkeys have got you covered.

Eric W. Schwartz: Cartoonist, Animator and Amiga Die Hard

American Cartoonist, Eric W. Schwartz, (whose unofficial Amiga Icon, Amy the Squirrel, is pictured on the July 92 edition of CU Amiga cover on the right) is my only real animation hero. Sure there are the big names like Disney, Chuck Jones, Tex Avery and even Preston Blair whose influences can all be seen in my own cartoons but Eric did what none of the others could. He showed that really great 2D computer animation was within my reach with little more than an Amiga Computer, a copy of Deluxe Paint and Moviesetter.

This was at a time when computer based animation was in its infancy (outside of computer game animation) and Flash was something that lights did.

There were many great Amiga artists but Eric was really the only one consistently making very funny, traditional style animations. His humor and drawing style is heavily influenced by classic Warner Brothers and Disney cartoons but he managed to build on this, creating something that was recognizably Eric's own style.

Review: CrazyTalk Animator 3 vs Moho Studio Pro 12

Reallusion's CrazyTalk Animator 3 or Smith Micro's Moho Studio Pro 12. Which of these 2D animation applications is right for you?

Regular readers of this blog will know I'm a strong supporter, and fairly proficient user of CrazyTalk Animator since version 1. It's a great piece of software for producing 2D animations from purchased content quickly and, with version 3, is easier than ever to create animations from your own art.

Lesser known is that I first purchased Moho Studio Pro 12 (then known as Anime Studio Pro 9) back in October of 2012 and have been upgrading it to the latest version ever since because I believed in it as an application for creating great 2D animation to TV quality standard. As such, it's a much more complex application than CTA3 that I only got around to learning properly late last year. I'm still in the process of blogging my progress.

Despite this I feel I've learned enough of Moho to compare it to CTA3 to help you determine which …

Voice All Your Own Animated Characters with Voice Changer

Voice Changer by AVSoft is real time voice manipulation software that can be used for a wide range of purposes including (according to their website); Voice-over and voice dubbing for audio/video clips, presentations, narrations, voice messages, voice mails, E-greeting cards, broadcasting, etc.; mimic the voice of any person, create animal sounds, change/replace/remove voices in songs, videos,etc.

I bought it for the specific purpose of changing my own voice, to extend my vocal range, for voicing characters in my own animations.
I was fortunate enough to get this software at a significant discount that made it difficult to refuse, given that I'd never tried it, or even heard of it before. I'm not sure if I would have bought it at the full price given that much of what it can do (for my needs) can also be done with the freeware audio program, Audacity.
Voice Changer is relatively easy to install and set up. Once installed simply change you default microphone to the installed AV…
