Artist commentary:

Cool and New Music Team:

([S] It Came From Volume 8)


(Community listening stream w/ chat)

bobthetacocat: (Artist)

Let me tell you a little story that starts from Volume V. The art team were having an "let's go through our art and see how much it sucks" binge, when I came across my track art for "i need an abumbalnce!!.mp3" and saw the LOWAS in the top left corner. The first thing I thought to myself was "hey, I could make that better." And so the editing of the original begins, and I end up with this. After getting a lot of positive reception and people asking me to make other planets, I decided to do this: start (and finish) LOHAC, then move on to LOLAR, then finally LOFAF. Over the course of working on LOHAC (which took too long to make the base circle of) I realized that I wasn't going to do anything with them, effectively making these for no reason. About this time is where I had the idea of arranging them in a Volume 8 cover fashion because, hey, I had the planets, I could do the thing, what's to lose?

After finishing LOHAC, XenoZane (sup booklet guy) asked me to do LOLAR, and as a joke, I decided to do LOLAF, Rose's CANWC planet instead. That joke was the only reason I had LOLAF handy and decided to do LODAR soon after finshing LOLAR. (and by soon after i mean the same day)

The same day is when i decided to make a base concept for what I was going to do with these planets that would have no use otherwise. After placing the planets that I had in their positions, more people starting noticing that the art for the planets had no use at the time.

I made a second concept art the next day.

On the same day, Makin noticed the art i was making and said this. Now, for some reason, my brain read that as "you can have the volume 8 spot" for some wild, bizzare, :wackyZany: reason. ((Insider info: the original Volume 8 album art was repurposed into the CaNHS3 album art.))

For some unknown reason, it took me three days to make LOFAF, and two days later I decided to make a "final plan" that never worked out, and made an 8 for the cover slightly after.

It took me too long to do the stars, about a week or something like that, but I got them done and that's all that matters. I added the Vrasky not too long after.

So yeah. That's the story about how a little edit to an old project stemmed into the cover for an album, and a project that I consider one of my best.

Overall, making the Volume 8 cover was a really fun project, and helping this team (and the team helping me) has been the greatest thing I've experienced in years, maybe ever.

I hope you have fun (or had fun, if you're reading this retroactively) with the album. Stay safe out there.

XenoZane: (Booklet Assembler)

fuck you bob i do not read your commentary because you put so many fucking pictures like goddamn

I wanted to contribute to the team more than just uploading youtube videos, so i jumped on the opportunity to make a commentary booklet, as i think the previous ones are really funny. problem is: i had no idea how to even make these. i wouldnt have been able to make this without the help of interrobang, who sent me the template for the canh commentary booklets and introduced me to adobe indesign.
