I hear them at night...they tell me do things...silly things! XP
Like deciding the perfect voices for my characters. XD
Yes, for those who have seen the silly poll, I want to nail down the voices for each of my characters so I and everyone else has an idea of what they sound like. ^_^
Granted, everyone has their own idea of what they might sound like and honestly, if you do have an idea, don't change it unless you happen to like the results of what comes about. That being said, what comes about from this combination of journals and polls finding out what all of you think of as well as my own ideas will be the final word in my mind on the voice that best represents each character.
So what are we looking for in a voice then? How the voice sounds with each emotion, the pitch, the personality...overall what best reflects the character. We'll all have our own ideas on what best suits each character, but that's the point. I want examples and options for us to choose from so we can nail down the best voice for each character.
So, one by one we're going to tackle each character and figure out the best voices for them and then figure it out with a poll. Sounds good? If not please give me your critique and ideas on how to better figure it out. In the meantime...
I will give several options/ideas and you all can give me your options/ideas, even if it's the same one. Variety would be helpful, but the more a certain voice is echoed, the closer we'll get to nailing it down.
So as the title says, this journal will focus on Jessie. Now, there are two version of Jessie; human and furry, so these ideas and I would hope everyone else ideas will reflect both of these versions.
- Rise Kujikawa: Persona 4 - voiced by Laura Bailey youtu.be/kP1LIrfsgAU
Laura Bailey is a name you'll see in several my choices for character voices as she is one of my favorite voice actors and it seems every time she pops up, she surprises me. Not only did her work as Rise surprise me, but she even did the voice of Shin in the anime Shin-Chan. There's something cool about a woman who can do a fun dorky voice like that. Anyway, part of what drew me to Rise was her voice and Laura really caught me with her performance and the more I hear it, the more I can see that voice coming from Jessie. With a variety of cuteness, playfulness, mischievousness, sweetness, and vulnerability this one is at the top of my list.
- Daphne Blake: Recent generation Scooby Doo movies and cartoons - voiced by Grey Delisle youtu.be/jOZOxSODLI4 www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdx1pd…
(Patrick Warburton, especially in this video, is always a hoot! Love his voice work!)
Given Jessie's habit of getting kidnapped and tied up, Daphne seems like an ideal character for Jessie to relate to and with the voice talent of Grey Delisle giving her life, even more so does this voice sound like a proper option for Jessie. There's a spunk and confidence and energy to Grey's style with this character that fits Jessie pretty well. Pairing her voice up with Jessie just feels right. ^_^
- Meg: Burst Angel - Voiced by Jamie Marchi youtu.be/BsXFQqSBFTA
This was one of my original choices for Jessie's voice. Voiced by Jamie Marchi, Meg had all the youthful femininity and sexiness I imagined Jessie to have. Meg, like Jessie also has a habit of getting captured and tied up and she also has a sharp fashion style, especially the inclusion of collars and cuffs as jewelry.
These are just a few examples and I'd like to hear what everyone has to say on my examples as well as everyone elses. There's really no wrong answer so please be polite if you disagree with someone's choice. Now, discuss!
