*too lazy to write specific reasons*
For their mixing, acting, and singing talents and/or their vocal range and/or greatly improving in the time they've been here or just for having a cool voice, I admire McTricky, TriPredRavage, BloodRedOath, Bree, Sukisho, Sapphire, Y.Chang, Ovarku, ichigoxcupcakes, InstraClassic, BrysonBaugus, Cydonia, Kennidy, TehExorcist, xSeo, Ramune, BossTrigger, Sarifus, Seymour, S H U D O - R A N M A R U, Akumaryu, MissAck, NikkiKora, hyperknees, and uh...uh...I think that's all I can think of right now. Yep.
Right now, I admire Merodi for her awesome mixing skills. Definitely want to know how to get to that point. Also, ProjectTrinity for his mad compositions and dedication. Acting-wise... I need to find some time to listen to you guys specifically, but damn this board has talent (and, for the most part, professionalism as well). Y'all should be proud.
I have TONS of favorites and inspiring folks (like the Lucien Dodge/Phillip Sacramento/Laura Post trio + MANY other talented folks that'd take forever for me to elaborate upon), so I'm going to clarify that to me, my role models are those I not only look up to, but am also currently learning from (in some shape or form) and actively attempt to incorporate their more admirable traits into my own development as a VA.
crispin freeman - because he's currently teaching me and he's awesome and
D-Mac Double - He's been working professionally in the industry for years, so he knows his stuff. Lately, he's been live directing me a lot with a bunch of projects that've been challenging me and his direction, feedback, and insight helped me gain the consistency I need to perform more competitively than ever despite being a little less active with voicework of late (what with work piling up). Most, if not all, conversations with him regarding voice acting are productive, constructive, and serve as learning experiences to train our ears better to pick up the kinds of things that would make performances more believable... And whenever we talk about "bad voice acting", we break it down and discuss it instead of being lazy, dismissive, and just saying "it sucks" with little rhyme or reason. He's always been there for me and I'm beginning to feel bad that I have little to repay him with for all he has helped me with.
Darkwolf - He has a really good head on his shoulders and to be honest, I believe he's much further along in pursuing professional voice acting than me and a couple of other friends of mine who actually LIVE in SoCal... And I think he started voice acting later than me by a few months (not sure when he started in radio). At times, he's like "the other D-Mac" in terms of keeping himself levelheaded and being professional. His instincts are very sharp and he always seems to know the right thing to do to advance, whereas I second-guess my instincts all the time and end up running with my Tasmanian-Devil Impulses that sometimes push me back in my pursuits. He really knows everything he talks about and I can always trust his judgments when I need a neutral set of ears. Oh, and his vocal/acting range keeps surprising me in a good way.
...and they both have the patience of saints to put up with me my gawd
My role models are the buddies I usually talk to who have experience in what they have done in the whole field of acting itself, without any ego and in place of that is a positive person who know what they're doing, and is able to pass on honesty. I'd have to say...
Fairuza - Girl, you truly love what you do, and you want to go far so hard that it'll make one's head spin so hard, and you do it without swagger, but in place of it is a great deal of confidence, and I'll be truly happy to know that you have made it into this business, and that is what makes me look up to you; your passion.
Apatheria - My broseph, we both love fine liquor and all that shit, but we can talk for hours on this whole subject of voice acting (and of course other things), and for someone who's been doing "Voice" Acting for a year less than me, you have come far, and I admire your theatre background (I also admire anyone who has done theatre), which would've helped a great deal.
I'll edit this once I think of good reasons for people in my head, as I don't have a full opinion on a lot of people.
I'll add more in time but let's add a few for now:
hyperknees91: Easy choice there. One of my best friends in the vaa and to me shown probably the biggest improvement out of everyone I saw on the VAA since I joined. I have much to learn from him.
Sarifus: Another great VA I admire, and we both share the fact we weren't born in the US. Sure English is still his first language, but still he doesn't show any signs of accent, which I hope to do in the future as well
Simbaga: Just her attitude and devotion makes me cheer for whatever she does. Never gives up no matter what happens to her, and I find that admirable
D-Mac: I don't think there is too much I can say about D-Mac that hasn't been said before, only that he IS the man.
Okay lets start
Y.Chang - When I first joined the forums, I ran into his works and stuff he was in and I just thought he was amazing.
I enjoyed his singing and acting skills and it strives me to be good has him.
Sakasa Jinei - I love her mixing so much, when first saw her street fighter clip, I was like, "how he do that?" (I assume she was a boy since of her icon)
but yeah, then I was like " I want to mix like this person" and I kept practicing cause of her.
Seymour - I always watched this guy work like "All the time!" I was impress by his mixing, but I was also impress on how
fast he completes them, and it inspired me to make has many clip has him.
Genshie - His knowledge of Anime and Video Games is quite big, I enjoy listening his information from him, and with this info, I can
start a fandubs faster than anyone else. Also he inspires me to do fandsub since he enjoy working with me.
Tomoyo Ichijouji - She is SO Organized, I was really impressed on her's comic dub script. I was really amazed
on how everything was there. Also she really dedicated on her projects and that inspires me to do that to my projects has well.
Sukisho - When I first heard his demo, I was like "Wow, this guy have so many voices !"
and then i was like, I wish I can go that high or low, so I kept practicing and then sooner or later
I was able so.
Anath Jackson - I see him has a working partner and I see him growing everyday too the point I see myself inspired by his acting and producing.
I'm not good at specifically explaining things but here goes.
Kamuro is easily one of my favourite voice actors on this board. I've adored her voice for ages now, especially when it comes to those young male roles. Whenever I hear her in something new, I feel all inspired for some reason and I always want to improve myself. Her productions are great as well, and I can tell how much she's improved producing and voice-acting wise, and especially in regards to hiding her accent, which I know is pretty difficult to do. I definitely look up to her and hopefully maybe my male voice can be up to par with hers, haha.
Producing wise, McTricky is my role model. His works are always astounding and just seem so perfect when I watch them, so I hope that I could be as awesome at mixing as he is.
And I guess, even if she doesn't go onto the board anymore, Sera Phia is definitely a role model of mine! Even when I was newish to the board as well, I found her work to be so inspiring and even now, I still look up to her.
So uh yeah. Just a super quick listing since its pretty late where I am. Of course, there are so many other people I could list, but I'll just echo what Monotori said, ya'll really should be proud of yourselves.
Here we go:
Y. Chang: I love his voice, it's really fresh and unique. His lyrics are fabulous, and his work just strives me to be better at what I do VAA related.
Seymour: His voice is really cool, and I like his range. His mixing is great too!
Kennidy: Her voice is cute and her acting is just awesome.
Haruhost: His singing voice is really nice, and he has good character diction.
Hyperknees: I really enjoy his voice, be it his normal deep voice or his higher voice. He also nearly always comments on my works and critiques it very nicely.
